Miranda Lambert on divorce rumors and weight loss

Billboard

Miranda set the record straight regarding her marriage to Blake Shelton, denying allegations that they are on the verge of divorce.

“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,” she told the new issue of Billboard magazine as their cover feature.

Another reason she was in the news recently was her dramatic weight loss after revealing a svelte figure at the Academy of Country Music Awards last month.

“It just feels like you can’t do anything for yourself anymore,” she says. “Have you ever thought I might just be turning 30 and trying to get a little ahead of the game? Isn’t that just a normal thing to do?”

Billboard describes the 30-year-old “country music’s go-to girl with a gun who’ll kick your ass,” but notes that Lambert is more comfortable with taming her tough girl side now.

“With success, I’ve been able to sort of calm that down and go, ‘OK, I don’t have to be guns a-blazin’ all the time. People are listening, so I can open up my softer side and show people who the whole Miranda is,'” she explains. “I have this other side. I love pink and puppies, too.”

Miranda and Blake live in Tishomingo, Okla. where she’s the owner of a women’s western store and plans to open a bed & breakfast.

“I love the slow pace, the normalcy that it gives me,” she says about their residence.
