One of the big stories from the CMA Awards was Miranda Lambert‘s drastic weight loss. The usually buxom country music star had lost all of her once-famous curves, and she looked like every other starving actress and singer in the business. So why the sudden change?
Miranda spoke about her weight loss at the CMAs, and her reasons weren’t very convincing. She basically explained that she lost all that weight because if she works hard now, she won’t have to work as hard in the future… yeah, it didn’t make much sense to me either. Her full explanation according to Hollywood Life was, “I just feel like I needed to get ahead of the game — I’m going to be 30 on Sunday and people say, are you OK about turning 30 and I guess I am, but I guess I’m not because I feel like everybody always says ‘It goes downhill from there.’ So I just thought, maybe if I get ahead of it a little I won’t have to work so hard later in life. I didn’t give up really a lot really. Just Cheetos mostly! But I might have some tonight, just to celebrate!”
We already know most celebrities’ party line on weight loss, and Miranda’s goes right with that. She’s not going to say she starved herself for weeks and exercised like a lunatic to fit into her dress for the awards, but instead she’ll pretend as though it was this breezy effort that only required her to cut down on her cheetos intake.
Experts and doctors all agree that the amount of weight loss that Miranda exhibited takes months and months to achieve in a healthy manner, but when have celebrities ever been healthy, especially when it comes to weight loss? It’s a bit sad, actually. We don’t have to search far to find the reasons that spurred Miranda to lose all that weight, since it all comes down to her husband, the womanizing Blake Shelton.
The poor girl is constantly facing tabloid stories and rumors about her husband cheating on her, and it’s gotten to the point where she’s pretty much admitted that she doesn’t trust him and checks his phone. As she gets older, the insecurities are only going to get louder, especially since they spend so much time apart and Blake is constantly surrounded by young and blonde bimbos in Los Angeles. So what can Miranda do? In her mind, she probably felt as though weight loss was a solid solution, but I doubt that’s going to fix the underlying issues in their marriage.
