Miranda Lambert opened up about the rumors that her husband, fellow country music superstar Blake Shelton, is cheating on her in an interview on ‘CBS Sunday Morning.’ She also talked about her weight loss, her tattoos and more.
The 30-year-old Miranda Lambert has a new album, auspiciously titled ‘Platinum’ and has been making the rounds on television and print media. But as much excitement as there may be about the new album — which indeed may be certified platinum if not multi-platinum, as have several of her previous albums — her husband and the rumors have continued unabated.
In the interview with Lee Cowan on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ she addressed the speculation and the tabloid headlines, saying, “”Music is what drew us together in the first place. But we do have a lot in common outside of that. So that’s why our relationship is strong.”
She went on to say, “I’m alone and pregnant – don’t I look miserable? Yeah, I’ve had like four babies in the last two months. And we have $100 million divorces. Blake’s like, ‘If one of us is getting $100 million divorce, then we’re getting divorced!”
She also spoke about her weight which is scrutinized so much in social media as she, like many in the public eye, has had to deal with the fat shaming that goes on. And in her case, in losing weight, the critics were not satisfied as there was speculation that the weight loss was a desperate attempt to hold onto her marriage.
She said, “I’ve never been afraid of talking about Spanx and eating junk food and drinking and whatever else. I just am who I am, and then all of a sudden it’s a big deal. I’d like all I did was cut out Cheetos, and now the whole world’s talking about it.”
Of the tattoo on her forearm she said that she got them when she was 22 years old. “They’re Colt 45s — gun that won the West – and little angel wings. So little bit tough, little bit sweet. You’re lookin’ at it!”
She went on to speak about her music — noting that she had written her first song at age 14 — and her Christian faith, and much more.
