Miranda Lambert is speaking out about refusing to do press for her post-Blake Shelton divorce album, "The Weight of These Wings," because she knew she'd be asked about Blake's relationship with Gwen Stefani and she wasn't having it!
Miranda spoke to HITS Daily Double about the whole ordeal.
"I came into [manager] Marion [Kraft's] office and said, 'I'm not speaking to anyone until they hear this record,'" she said. "It was going to be hell, and I'd already been through hell," she continued. "It was hell putting it on paper, putting my words on paper. So I didn't want to rehash. I'd finally gotten to a place where I wasn't sad anymore … It would've set up some expectation that couldn't be met. I was very publicly going through this thing, and there wasn't an explanation to be given."
Of course, the first press call she had was about, you guessed it, Gwen and Blake!
"I got on the phone for the first interview. First question was, 'How do you feel about Gwen?' I hung up," she said. "I told Marion, 'I just can't do this.' What was in the music was real, and I wanted people to get it from that. Take from it what they would. Then if I needed to talk, I would. But I haven't really until now."
And talking, she is! The 34-year-old country super star opened up about where she is in her life right now.
"I am who I am. I am honest about being flawed. That's all I can be, you know? I cuss. I drink. I get divorced and get my heart broken. I break hearts. I can't do or be that anymore, or it'll drive me crazy. I won't be good anymore," she shared. "I felt, maybe, a different kind of fear than any other record. It was really my life's work and my life's story. But there was also relief, I was thankful to let the music do what the music does — and to allow myself that."
