Miranda Lambert reigned as the country queen at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) ceremony. And while Luke Bryan earned Entertainer of the Year, it was Blake Shelton’s wife Miranda who ended up with an armful of awards, reported ABC News.
For the sixth consecutive year, Lambert took home the Female Vocalist trophy. She also earned Song of the Year for “Automatic,” and won Album of the Year for Platinum. Only George Strait is neck-and-neck with Miranda in that category for total wins.
And while winning all those awards, Miranda stunned the audience with her style. She recently lost approximately 50 pounds, and the ACM event gave her a reason to strut her newly slim body. How did she do it?
Lambert declined offers from weight loss companies to help her. Although it’s not always publicized, some diet companies do pay celebrities to use their weight loss programs in exchange for becoming ambassadors.
For example, as the Inquisitr reported, Sharon Osbourne used the Atkins high fat low carb diet program to shed her excess pounds, and is now representing the company as its ambassador.
But Miranda was determined to do it her way without a formal weight loss program, she told Women’s Health.
As a result, Lambert has learned the meaning of moderation. For example, while she was tempted to eat a sandwich made of “egg yolks, bacon, and cheese” at lunch, she ordered a side of fruit with a tuna sandwich, minus those alluring French fries.
And Miranda admits she was hurt when those diet companies wanted to help her lose 40 pounds in exchange for becoming their spokeswoman.
“I’d think, ‘But I’m not obese. I’m only a size 8. I really don’t even need to lose 40 pounds. I thought I only needed to lose like 15, but now that you mention it, dang, I do look kind of bad! Thanks for bringing that to my attention, a**hole.‘“
Although Blake loves his wife regardless of her weight, Miranda says she’s determined to keep off the pounds.
As for all those rumors about divorce? Lambert’s main competition for Blake Shelton’s attention is his fellow The Voice coach Adam Levine, as the Inquisitr reported.
The two are so deep into their “bromance” that they’re known as “Shevine” (Shelton plus Levine) by fans.
Analyzing their friendship, The Voice coach Pharrell Williams said that he thinks it’s an example of opposites attract.
“Blake is a like a G, like an OG. He’s just so cool. He’s calm waters. And then Adam, he’s the attention guy, but he’s good at it. So you see the guy that’s real calm and laid back approach, and then you see the guy that’s super aggressive.”
