Recently, Miranda Lambert revealed her new super fit body at the Country Music Awards. A vision in flattering cobalt blue.
Many congratulated her success. The tabloid rumor mill, always willing to think outside of the box, was less positive, according to Inside Edition. They implied that all her hard work was nothing more than quick fix weight loss surgery.
US Magazine reported that 30-year-old Lambert felt compelled to address these rumors:
“Though I NEVER care what the tabloids have to say about me… I wanted to address this certain story they are running this week and set the record straight. I DID NOT have surgery to lose weight.”
“That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good old fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield.”
Shelton was clearly unimpressed with the tabloids’ treatment of his wife. He tweeted, “How dare these tabloids. Beauty comes in all sizes.”
Texas-born Lambert is no stranger to tabloid rumors. She is a multi-CMA winner, and she is married to fellow country superstar Blake Shelton. She and her celebrity husband handle much of the rumors printed about them with casual indifference and a sense of humor that speaks to their character.
Miranda Lambert credits her weight loss to healthier eating, daily exercise, and the support of her 37-year-old sweetheart, who told her, “I have never had a problem with any way you look at any point–you are beautiful to me at any size and every size.” Miranda responded to her husband’s compliments by saying, “But he has been proud of my hard work on this. He brags on me. That makes me feel great.”
The skinnier starlet said she cuts meals in half, and stays away from fast food and even Cheetos, but there was one thing she won’t give up altogether:
“I didn’t give up drinking. I refused. You have to drink to put up with my husband! Just kidding! But I just felt that I should get a little more healthy and I have a record coming out in the spring and it’s a very important album to me – it’s my fifth album – and I have this spot, I found a great spot in country music and I want to keep it.”
Miranda Lambert has also admitted that part of the reason she seems to have made such a dramatic shift is her short stature, “I’m only 5’4″ so when I gain, I gain everywhere and when I lose, I lose everywhere.” She also admits she does not know how many pounds she has lost, just how her “skinny jeans” fit.
