Blake Shelton just acquired a new property, and no, despite those constantly swirling rumors that he and Gwen Stefani plan to move in together, it’s not a mansion for the lovebirds and her sons. Instead, in a surprise move that no one saw coming, Miranda Lambert has decided to close her popular Pink Pistol boutique in Oklahoma and sell it to her former husband Blake, reported People.
The 39-year-old country music superstar purchased the Tishomingo, Oklahoma, boutique but revealed only that he has developed “a plan brewing” for the location’s future.
“As a resident of Tishomingo I’m very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area. We all, as a community, appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind… I was offered the opportunity to buy them, and I have a plan brewing.”
Twitter lit up with speculation that those “brewing” plans included an actual bar, and Shelton bantered with his fans.
But where does this leave his former wife Miranda? Lambert is brewing up her own plans, according to Us Weekly.
Miranda is plotting to bring together her lifestyle boutique in Lindale, Texas, which is her hometown. The 32-year-old country music diva wants to take her Pink Pistol flagship store in Lindale and relocate to a bigger, better location. Planned for August, the move will give Lambert the opportunity to offer her fans more inventory and “Miranda’ize” merchandise.
“It feels full circle to have everything under one ‘roof,’ basically where it all began, in my hometown of Lindale,” revealed Lambert.
Miranda expressed her appreciation to her employees as well as to visitors to her store. She also mused that sometimes one chapter must end before a new one commences.
“I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.”
Does Gwen Stefani feel worried or jealous about the decision Blake has made to invest in a property owned by his ex-wife? Gwen takes pride in all of her boyfriend’s successes, constantly cheering him on in person and on social media, pointed out Hollywood Life.
Moreover, Miranda’s move seems to signify her decision to move on and put her divorce behind her. Lambert has found her own new love in Anderson East and also is planning a tour.
Miranda and Anderson have been dating for about five months and recently celebrated their romance on stage, noted E! News.
Lambert and East were on stage at Chris Stapleton’s concert at the Greek Theatre in California recently, and fans were thrilled.
“When she came out, the crowd went nuts,” an eyewitness told E! News.
And just to show how much he loves Miranda, East performed “My Girl” as Lambert handled the backup vocals. Fans headed to social media to express their delight in the romance evident between Miranda and Anderson.
With Stefani secure that Miranda has moved on, she’s been changing her style for a new flirty look suited to her new love, according to Hits 96.
Makeup artist Gregory Arlt is a valued contributor to Gwen’s glamour, and Arlt revealed how the 46-year-old has transformed herself through the years, including how she has changed for her boyfriend.
“With a new love [Blake Shelton] and new music, she’s really feeling very flirty and feminine,” shared Arlt.
The makeup guru also revealed that her new relationship has given her courage to experiment.
“Whenever someone is in a really exciting place in their life, you just want to kind of show it. She’s just so happy right now and is willing to try and do fun things, like an orange or a pale lip, both of which are very ’60s-inspired and lighter, flirtier and happier.”
