Miranda Lambert opens up in Rolling Stone’s Country Issue about her obsession with Beyonce and her own ”pretty instantaneous” rise to fame with husband Blake Shelton.
Gushing about Beyonce’s work ethic, Lambert says, ”She’s a girl from Houston, and she worked her butt off to get where she is,” adding, “She’s not just being carted around on her chariot; she’s driving it.”
Like Beyonce, Lambert also shares the spotlight with her equally famous husband.
“One day we were country singers, and the next we’re on the front of the tabloids,” she says of her life Shelton.
“I’m, like, really magical. I’ve been pregnant for two and a half years,” she jokes, mocking the weekly magazines.
Despite their fame, Shelton — who took part in the interview — admits his wife will get into a bar fight if she is angry enough.
“People always try to pop off or call her bluff at bars,” he says, pointing out an incident with “the lead singer of a very popular rock band. His initials are C.K.” (Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, says Rolling Stone).
