With near-constant rumors that she and husband Blake Shelton are heading for divorce, country star Miranda Lambert took a moment at the CMA Songwriters Series last week to set the record straight, reports Country Weekly.
“For the record, I’m not pregnant -- I’m drinking -- and I’m not getting divorced,” she said.
Lambert went on to say that all the tabloid speculation about her personal life has given a new meaning to her 2007 single, "Famous In A Small Town."
“I’ve been pregnant, having twins, we’ve been separated, I’m drunk and alone, pregnant again, then we’re having twins again, and now we’re getting divorced. I can’t even name the stuff," she reportedly said. "It’s funny because I realize this song means even more to me now because I’m in the tabloids every week for being famous for something I didn’t even do than for something I want to be famous for, which is playing my damn guitar and writing a song.”
Lambert has spoken out about her buzzed-about relationship before. In April 2013, after winning an Academy of Country Music award with Shelton for their song "Over You," she told reporters that the time apart from her husband can be difficult, but their relationship is worth it.
“You know, it’s not easy all the time being on opposite sides of the country and, you know, traveling and all that,” she said. “But when you get to celebrate moments like this together and when you go through the hard stuff together, those are the moments that actually count. All the rest is fluff.”
