Carrie Underwood sat down with Elle Magazine for their December issue, and in addition to posing for some stunning black and white photos, the country crooner reveals that she didn't mean to upset Jessica Simpson earlier this year.

It all started back in June when Jessica was spotted wearing a t-shirt with "Real Girls Eat Meat" emblazoned across the front, which many perceived to be a jab at Carrie, who is a devout vegan. Carrie then took a swipe at Jessica when she revealed in the September issue of Allure that ex Tony Romo (and Jessica's current man) still calls her. Carrie boldly stated, "The phone will ring and it'll be him, and I'll maybe not answer." After that, Jessica said in a radio interview, "Tony and I both laughed at that...we got a chuckle out of it." When the radio host asked the wannabe country singer if there was any truth to Carrie's claim, Jessica responded, "I know it's not [true], I looked at his call log."

Now Carrie tells Elle, "It was just something that was said in passing, and I would never mean to say anything to hurt anybody or to stir up anything, because I’m just not about drama. At all. I might be mad too if somebody said my boyfriend was calling some other girl. So I can definitely see where she [Jessica Simpson] would be coming from. But I haven’t talked to him since, like, May."
