14. Needs a Drink

When Shelton and Lambert divorced it was suggested his constant drinking and partying was an issue with her, but as it turns out she doesn’t mind taking a swig from the bottle herself. During her performance in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota at the WE Fest on August 7, 2015, the singer told the crowd, “I wish I’ve been drinking all day, I deserve it…I just got divorced.” Fans tweeted that they’d be up for grabbing a drink with her. The 34-year-old country star also started crying while singing ‘Over You.’

13. Perfect Size

The feisty superstar is 5’4” and a size eight. She is often criticized for her weight, but Miranda Lambert has a message for all the haters: “I’m not naturally small…And I’m fine with that, because so many girls come up to me and say, ‘Thank you for being normal-sized — it gives us hope that you don’t have to be a size 2 to be somebody.’”
