With near-constant talk that she and husband Blake Shelton are heading for divorce, country star Miranda Lambert addressed the rumors recently:

“For the record, I’m not pregnant – I’m drinking – and I’m not getting divorced,” she said, pretty much clearing up all celebrity gossip topics in one quote.

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 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.”

Lambert has spoken out about her buzzed-about relationship before.

In April 2013, after winning an American Country Music award with Shelton for their song “Over You,” she told reporters that the time apart from him was hard.

Hard but 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 of her Voice coach spouse.

“But when you get to celebrate moments like this together and when you go through the hard stuff, those are the moments that count. All the rest is fluff.”

Well said, as always. Here’s hoping for many more of those moments for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, always one of our favorite couples.
