    Queen of Everything: Carrie Underwood

    If the country singer was Queen for a day...

    Taking to the throne this week is country singer Carrie Underwood, 29, who would bring back pogo sticks and ban back-combing


    Iíd be dripping in jewels.
    The first thing Iíd do is wear all the Queenís jewels at once Ė it doesnít matter if they donít match. I could be wearing 30 bracelets but that would be OK. Iím married, so my husband [ice-hockey player Mike Fisher] would probably expect to be king. Weíve been married for nearly two years now and Iíve grown pretty attached to him [laughs] so I definitely wouldnít want to try living without him. I donít have children but I do have two dogs, Ace and Penny, who would be my prince and princess.

    Iíd grow a few inches.
    I wish that I was taller. Iím 5ft 3in now. I donít want to be monstrously tall but I think 5ft 5in would be nice. Just a couple more inches, Iím not greedy. The wonderful thing about being short is that you can lie. You can wear high heels. When people see me in real life wearing flats, they always tell me that Iím really short.

    Iíd know more about my ancestors.
    If I could pick anyone to sit down and have a conversation with it would be my great, great, great grandmother. It would be wonderful to know where I come from. Iím the baby of my family and my dad was the baby too so thereís a big information gap.

    There would be a royal decree that everyone must be on time.
    I canít stand people who are late Ė it drives me absolutely crazy. If we agree to meet at 7pm, Iím there at 6.45pm and ready to go. When I do awards shows like the Grammys theyíre always surprised when I actually show up on time Ė no-one else does.

    Iíd bring back board games.
    When I was young we used to have the best games and cartoons. Everything has become so technology driven now, which is great in the workplace but not for games. We used to play The Game Of Life and Monopoly Ė I still play Scrabble on my iPad but itís always fun to break out a board game. More physical exercise would be good too Ė growing up I had a pogo stick and I loved my bike.

    The world would be kinder to our furry friends.
    Iím a big animal lover. I wish people could find alternatives to fur and generally take better care of the world and all its inhabitants. Where I grew up, for some reason people donít spay or neuter their pets so they just keep multiplying. I built an animal shelter in my home town [Checotah, Oklahoma] and my mum helps to run it. We have unwanted puppies coming in all the time Ė we try to find good homes for them but it can be hard.

    Backcombing would be banned.
    It really damages my hair. When Iím doing a photo-shoot the person doing my hair needs it to look good for the day but they donít realise that I have to live with it for the next 12 months until it grows out.

    Carbs would always be on the royal menu.
    I love pasta. I love a good risotto. Give me Italian food every day; that would be awesome. I lead a pretty well-balanced life and donít deprive myself too much of what I want. Iíve been a vegetarian for eight years and became vegan last year so barbecue restaurants are not my favourite Ė a big room of steak is pretty scary.

    If I could have a superpower I would be able to fly.
    It would be awesome not to have to wait at airports.

    Iíd be more athletically able.
    I wish I could play basketball. I grew up playing softball and Iíve always considered myself an athletic person but Iíd love to be able to play ball. Iím excited about the Olympics Ė [in the US] we always look for a reason to be proud. Iím sure everyone does; supporting their country and athletes.

    Everyone would listen to country music.
    Lots of people have the wrong impression of country music and what it stands for but now is such a great time for it because thereís something for everyone. Some artists are more traditional, others are heavily rock influenced then you have people that teeter on the pop side of things. Itís full of real talent. You donít really see country music artists on award shows lip-synching through their entire performance. In June people come from all over the world for the CMA country music festival in Nashville Ė they go to the honky-tonk and karaoke bars and eat, drink and be merry. Itís fun but the drawback is itís always awfully hot.

    Iíd be a Ďgo with the flowí kind of Queen.
    There isnít much that people donít know about me. What you see is what you get.

    Carrie Underwood is performing at the Royal Albert Hall on 21 June. For tickets visit gigsandtours.com
