Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton decided that the proof is in the kiss. So, when it came to showing that the country music couple’s support for embattled Little Big Town, they combined PDA with “Girl Crush Caps,” reported People.
Married for four years, the country crooners used Instagram to show off their love for each other and faith in the band’s single. Little Big Town has experienced a backlash based on its new single, which some interpreted as supporting lesbian relationships.
“We love @littlebigtown #girlcrush”
At 31 to Shelton’s 38 years, Miranda recently revealed her husband’s constantly upbeat attitude – and her own dark side.
“I’m not sunshine and roses. Blake’s the happiest person on the planet. He pulls me out of my darkness … Literally, everything is the best about being married.”
And although they carve out time for canoodling, both country music stars stay busy. Miranda is touring almost 30 cities, while Blake is juggling The Voice and planning hosting responsibilities for the Academy of Country Music Awards.
In addition, as the Inquisitr reported, Shelton is still enjoying his “bromance” with fellow Voice coach Adam Levine, while Miranda recently turned heads as she sizzled in a bathing suit for her “Little Red Wagon” video.
For Little Big Town, support from country superstars such as Blake and Miranda is a welcome change to the controversy they’re trying to combat, reported USA Today.
Their single “Girl Crush” earned new attention when the group released a video complete with lyrics.
“I want to taste her lips”
“Yeah, ’cause they taste like you”
“I want to drown myself”
“In a bottle of her perfume”
“I want her long blonde hair”
“I want her magic touch”
Trying to understand why the lyrics were interpreted as a song about a lesbian relationship, the group’s guitarist argued that listeners were missing the story told through music.
“The title is definitely provocative, as is the setup for the hook. You lean in in and wonder, ‘What’s this about?’ But in the next line, it turns: Maybe then you’d want me just as much,” explained Jimi Westbrook.
Little Big Town describes the song as the tale of a woman who was jilted. As she admits that she feels envious of her now ex-lover’s girlfriend, the woman thinks that if she could model herself after the new girlfriend, she could get her boyfriend back.
And what annoys Westbrook the most is that those who are offended stop listening just when the plot is revealed.
“To hear that people were misinterpreting it was a little funny. I was like, ‘You didn’t even listen past what you thought was offensive!’ There are people who just like to complain and the moment they get to the part they can complain about it, they don’t go any further. I hate it, but there’s nothing you can do about it. People are the way they are and God bless ’em.”
