Miranda Lambert Covers 'Redbook' April 2011
Here’s what the 27-year-old country star had to share:
On performing: “In my everyday life, I’m pretty normal. But I love the moments when I can get on stage and headbang and freak out and smash my guitar and all that too.”
On her fiance, country musician Blake Shelton: “Blake lets me be who I am. And I love his quirky sense of humor. He’ll say, ‘What’s it like to be so straight that you never laugh?’ I’ve loosened up a lot since we started dating. Then at times I’m like, ‘This is reality time; turn off the funny guy.’ So we balance each other out.”
On marriage: “I’m going into it with complete confidence. Marriage is gonna be your stability through everything. It’s someone who always has your back. And it makes me want to be a better woman so I can be that for Blake. Forever.”
On being called the “Lady Gaga of Nashville”: “I’m not near as brave as her [laughs], but I take it as a compliment. She’s awesome. I guess it’s the fact that I don’t give a crap what people think. I just am who I am.”
