Miranda Lambert Shares "Personal Photo," Blasts Haters

by at .

For months now, the Internet has continued to speculate over when Blake Shelton will marry Gwen Stefani.

There's even been talk of these singers having a baby.

Despite this awkward chatter surrounding her ex-husband, however, Miranda Lambert has remained silent. She's said very little. She's taken the high road again and again.

But Lambert was unable to keep her thoughts to herself on Thursday night.

Not concerning Blake and Gwen, no.

Lambert has been dating Anderson East for over a year and seems very happy in her new relationship.

She was not happy, however, with the reaction of Internet trolls to a photo of her and East out on the town this week.

And she felt a need to respond, in an especially "personal" manner.

“This is one of those moments that I’m proud of,” Lambert wrote as a caption to the following photo at the outset of a post she described as "really personal."

Lambert continued:

“My friend Tommy snapped it on a trail ride on his phone at golden hour on the farm in TN. What a blessing. I’m wearing yoga pants and no makeup and I’m on the back of my beloved Leiani.”

The country music superstar went on to say that she is "not selling a better version of myself to anyone or trying to look cool like we all do all the time," in the image.

Instead, it is "just a picture that either I or someone I know and care about took the time to take and see the beauty in."

So, where is she going with this?

"Last night I was all dolled up and "out on the town" with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville," she explained.

"I was excited about the night and posted a picture. Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative.

"Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language. What a bunch of bull shit."

Here is a photo of Lambert and East from the event in question:

Who would look at this photo and criticize Lambert?!?

We mean... you should not look at any photo on the Internet and criticize a stranger. But Miranda looks gorgeous!

"Thank y'all for reminding me why I read books , write songs, and spend most of my time with animals and people I trust and love," Lambert wrote, addressing her supporters.

Oh, "and one last thing," she concluded, proceeding to quote the poet Maya Angelou as follows:

Words are things. You must be careful, careful about calling people out of their names, using racial pejoratives and sexual pejoratives and all that ignorance. Don’t do that. Some day we’ll be able to measure the power of words.

I think they are things. They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery, and your clothes, and finally in to you.

Amen, Miranda.

And to those who think Lambert is just being too sensitive, she proved this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live that she has no problem making fun of herself at times.

To wit:
