Miranda Lambert Tells Her Side of the Story on Blake Shelton Divorce
Years after her breakup from Blake Shelton, country singer Miranda Lambert is opening up on their failed marriage.
While promoting her new album “The Weight of These Wings,” Lambert told Billboard magazine, "If you want to hear my side of the story or my opinion of what happened, it's all on there. There's no mystery anymore — take from it what you will.”
After their split, Lambert hit the studio and “walked in with guns blazing.” She added, "I just knew one thing: I didn't want a breakup record… I was like, 'Let's feel it all.' I was ready to have the days where I can't even stand up and the days where I'm celebrating.”
On the day the divorce news broke, Lambert and songwriter Shane McAnnally wrote “Vice” in about five minutes. He said, "It was like a Band-Aid ripping off. Sometimes you can just tell that people are ready to let off some steam.”
As for how she's grown as a person over the years, Miranda said, “I'm more known for my fiery personality and my confidence, but that's not me all the time. I won't look at things ever again in the same light, because different things in your life bring you to a deeper level with yourself. I won't take pain for granted anymore.”
Lambert has found love again with Anderson East, while Shelton has been dating Gwen Stefani.
