Miranda Lambert has a new interview with Redbook Magazine where she opens up about her relationship with Blake Shelton. She talks about protecting her private life with Blake, saying, “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.'"
She also talks about spending time apart from Blake, saying, “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?
She adds that she also has a tendency to feel insecure at times, saying, “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. It was really hard to get up there after we had been to three funerals. [Blake's] dad died, my childhood best friend passed away, and then my childhood dog, all in two weeks. I went back onstage, and I wasn't ready, but the crowd just embraced me.”
She adds, “I was like, 'Okay, I'm really real. Like, all of this tough-girl image? My walls are down and all these people can see it.' But it was a good moment for me. I just laid it out there, like, 'I'm normal, I'm a girl, I have PMS, and I get emotional, and I'm sad sometimes, and that's it.' I feel like I got over the hump of trying to be like, 'I have a chip on my shoulder, I'm strong all the time,' you know? Because no one is."
