Miranda Lambert Discusses Scrutiny That Came With Split From Blake Shelton


Miranda Lambert faced a lot of media scrutiny after her marriage to Blake Shelton ended, and, in case you missed it, she opened up about how it felt in a new interview with “CBS Sunday Morning.”

“I wasn’t prepared for that. Well, I don’t think anyone is. And it’s not nice sometimes,” she shared, “But I think you gotta take it with a grain of salt, and know that I’m a singer-songwriter, so luckily, I can tell my whole truth. I will not lie in my music.”

Of course Miranda is much happier now in her marriage to Brendan McLoughlin, who she married in 2019, describing falling in love with him as “like some kind of Hallmark movie or something — this redneck from Texas meets this beautiful NYPD officer on the street in New York.”

And while Miranda has had a lot of success with sad breakup songs, she doesn’t feel like she has to be living that in order to write about it. “Sometimes artists live in darkness and use it for their art, or whatever,” she says. “You don’t have to be tortured to be good. Like, you can write a sad song and not have to live every sad song you ever write,” adding, “You know, it’s an impossible way to live, and to be.”
