Miranda Lambert has always spoken her truth, in the only way she can. And as she continues to bask in the success of her revealing new song, “Vice,” she remains centered in that truth.

But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t hear those naysayers.

In a recent interview with “The Plain Dealer,” Miranda opened up about how she handles the so-called news that the tabloids try to tell about her.

“I surround myself with great people – good friends and family,” Miranda said. “That’s what I focus on, and the [bleep] is not on my radar.”

This sort of attitude is something she has learned throughout the years. “I think really it is all about roots and knowing who you are,” she said. “That’s what it is where we’re from. Growing up in a Bible Belt town keeps my feet on the ground.”

She also discussed how the troubles in her life have ultimately affected the music she has put out. “Some of my favorite songs were not written because people were in the happiest place of their lives,” she said. “Merle Haggard, for instance, being in prison. It’s being honest.”

Yep, honest – that’s exactly the way we love ‘ya Miranda.
