Miranda Lambert has never been one to shy away from speaking her mind, and as the cover girl of February’s Redbook Magazine, she does just that. The article tackles every topic from Twitter and insecurities, to “being the bad guy” and her endearingly big-mouthed hubby, Blake Shelton.
And while she may look as tough as gunpowder and lead, Miranda is full of her own insecurities and insists she’s a big ol’ softy:
“I’m insecure about tons of things! I cry onstage once a week, singing ‘The House That Built Me,’ and I always tell the crowd, ‘Don’t tell anyone I was cryin’!’ Or ‘Over You,’ when Blake and I had all that loss in our lives.”
Time apart from Blake also helps the singer enjoy her time with him.
“I love it. This time I hadn’t seen him in 11 days, and he was just so happy when I got here, it was like [she makes an angels-singing voice] ‘Ahh, you’re here.’ When I go to The Voice set and everyone says, ‘Blake’s been talking about you so much,’ it just makes me feel special, you know.”
But, she claims, she’s not the nicest Shelton.
“I’m more protective. He’s the sweetest guy. Like, he will talk to anyone, sign anything, take a picture with everyone. And if I don’t stop it at some point, it ruins our whole night. I have to be the bad guy. The people are like, ‘Oh, God, don’t mess with her, she’ll murder people.’”
