Miranda Lambert has a new Billboard magazine profile to go along with her new album, “Platinum,” which drops June 3. In the interview, the blonde bombshell talks about the constant split rumors that dog her and husband Blake Shelton, a fellow country singer and coach on “The Voice.”
“It takes some getting used to,” says Lambert of the tabloid attention. “I always heard ‘no publicity is bad publicity,’ and I don’t necessarily agree with that. … I think I’ve had like five sets of twins in the last two years, and we’ve been divorced four times, and one of us had a $100 million divorce. We both agreed, ‘If one of us has $100 million, one of us is killing the other.’ It’s craziness.”
But she says that what has actually happened is that all the tabloid stories have actually brought them closer as a couple.
“[Blake] just shrugs it off. He doesn’t care at all,” says Lambert. “But girls are more sensitive. I’m like, ‘But they’re telling lies!’ So dramatic. Now, it has actually brought us closer, which is probably the opposite of what they’re trying to do. We just laugh about it.”
Lambert finishes, “I’m 30, and I’m married happily, and I have a life up here in Oklahoma
that I’m enjoying … When you’re just a kid, you fly by the seat of
your pants: ‘Who cares?’ But it’s a lot different once you have your
roots set. … I’m sitting perfectly where I want to be sitting right now at 30.”
See Lambert debut her duet with Carrie Underwood Sunday (May 18) on the 2014 Billboard Music Awards and watch Shelton Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on “The Voice” on NBC.
