Miranda Lambert Made A Rare Comment On The Media Craze Surrounding Her And Blake Shelton
- Miranda Lambert opened up about her rise to fame and relationships in a new interview.
- She revealed how she met her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, and how the "tabloid world" swarmed her divorce with Blake Shelton.
Miranda Lambert is getting candid about some personal details from her childhood, divorce from Blake Shelton, and happily ever after with current husband Brendan McLoughlin.
The “Got My Name Changed Back” singer spoke to The New York Times about her love of music, which started when she was just a girl growing up with her parents, Richard and Beverly, who were both private investigators. Though Miranda claims she had a “pretty normal life,” her house sounded a little more interesting than your average small town family.
“My parents, their conversations while we were eating spaghetti, were about who they caught having an affair,” she said. “It was normal to me and my brothers.”
She admits their careers may have leaked into her music, which certainly didn’t hurt the 35-year-old superstar, as some of her biggest hits are “Gunpowder and Lead” and “White Liar.” What did take her by surprise though, was how the spotlight that resulted from her success affected her relationships.
“I didn’t know it would be this much business That was the shocking part: This is 80 percent business, and I thought it was 80 percent art,” she said. “And then the second part of that was fame. All of a sudden, there was a tabloid world, because of my first marriage.”
There certainly were many whispers about Miranda and Blake during their split, and it still continues today. As recent as April fans were wondering if she threw shade at Blake during the ACM Awards. But that doesn’t seem to faze Miranda, as she’s now happily with NYPD officer, Brendan. Still, that doesn't mean she's totally escaped the rumor mill.
"Here and there, I see myself at Kroger. I sell magazines," she said. "I guess I’m still interesting."
The two split their time between Nashville and New York, where she just confirmed they first met at Good Morning America.
“I met my husband doing press for the Pistol Annies record, this time last year,” Miranda revealed. “My girlfriends, the Annies, saw him and knew I was might be ready to hang out with someone. They invited him to our show behind my back. They plucked him for me.”
Even her security guard was in on it. “He said to me, ‘He’s here. And he’s pretty,'” she recalled. “Now the Pistol Annies have three husbands, two ex-husbands, three children, a stepson, and 23 animals.”
Those sound like pretty good friends to us!
