The real reason Miranda Lambert cried in concert will break your heart Al Wagner/Invision/AP)

You know that saying, “anything guys can do, girls can do better?” Well, Miranda Lambert is the epitome of that saying.

As tough as any guy and as pretty as any woman, Miranda is the perfect concoction of gorgeous and badass. The thing about Miranda, however, is she doesn’t let you see inside too often. It’s not that she’s distant, but she likes to keep her personal life personal. Sometimes though, that’s just not an option.

Miranda was in Chicago on July 29 when she delicately began singing her hit song “Over You.” While she performed the song, she noticed a fan in the front row. The thing about this fan was that she wasn’t holding a sign or trying to touch Miranda as she walked by, she had her phone out. In the day and age we live in this is not an uncommon occurrence but when Miranda looked closely, she noticed the fan wasn’t recording her. Instead, she was face timing the concert to a friend in the military.

That stopped Miranda dead in her tracks. She knelt down to take a closer look and after missing her line, the band wound the song down to a halt. Tearing up a bit, she let the crowd take over singing the heartbreaker of a song.

Earlier in the show, Miranda told the crowd that it had already been an emotional day.

“I’m out of it today. I’m hormonal, I’ve had cramps. I’ve eaten a lot of chocolate today,” she laughed and with a shy smile said, “ I’ve been such a girl today.”

So yes ladies and gentlemen, it is true. Badass Miranda, the pink pistol Annie herself, does indeed get overtaken by emotion just like everyone else.
