Miranda Lambert damn sure knows what is important in her life right now, and it’s certainly not men. What’s important to her is women, and taking a stand for them. Even if the win doesn’t go to her.
It’s not common for stars to share the spotlight, but Miranda has never been ordinary.
In a recent interview with Redbook, she shared her feelings about sexism in country music and the ongoing fight for women to be heard.
“It’s B.S., straight up! Carrie Underwood still struggles, and that just blows my mind because she’s got a million hits and she’s Carrie Freakin’ Underwood. I tell them at the radio stations, ‘Just play one of us; it doesn’t have to be me. Then we all win.’ I’ll fight for it until I can’t no more.”
This is certainly not the first time she’s taken a stand for a fellow female artist.
At a recent Texas concert posted on Twitter, she used the stage to make a statement. “I want to do this on behalf of all the girls that are not being played on country radio right now. If you really love us, you will call and request any female that has a song out and something to say.”
What’s Important Now
Her Redbook interview did more than reveal her thoughts about the disparity between male and female artists. In it, she also told details about where she is in her life now, and what’s important.
Miranda said her life used to be three “M’s”: music, mutts, and men. However, she joked that men aren’t on that list anymore. Thus, now it’s just two, the music and mutts.
But then she revised her statement, noting there are still three: “The last one is Miranda.”
She confessed that fame has been difficult because she doesn’t like being in the spotlight. “I’m not actually a very good famous person at all. I hate cameras. It was a big shocker to me that the music business is 80% business and 20% music.”
It’s ironic that a girl who doesn’t love being in the spotlight seems to live her life in one, both by chance and by choice.
