Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s “Wild Marriage” on the cover of People: why?


When I first saw this People Magazine cover, I thought that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert must have some sort of deal with People where they would get a follow-up cover the year after their wedding cover. I was wrong though, their wedding was on the cover of US Weekly, not People, and it was a whole 18 months ago. The accompany article admits that they’ve only been together about 150 days since they’ve been married, which is roughly a quarter of the time by my estimate. Plus, rumor has it that they got together when Blake was still with his last wife. (Blake denies he cheated with Miranda, but Miranda sort-of admits it happened that way.) So why are they being held up as an example of a couple to emulate? Maybe it’s some kind of cross-promotion with The CMA Awards and Blake’s new Christmas special, which is mentioned in the piece. (Update: the CMA Awards are Thursday night, so that’s what this is about.) People knew their female readers wouldn’t buy it unless Miranda was on the cover too and the focus was on their relationship. Here’s more:

After 18 months of marriage, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are still acting like newlyweds. So, what’s the secret to their wedded bliss?

“We won’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other,” says Lambert, 28, in PEOPLE’s new issue.

But sometimes, not seeing each other works wonders too. If they spend too much time together, says Shelton, 36, “we’ll kill each other!”

Despite their busy schedules, which Lambert has said meant they’ve spent only about 150 days together since they exchanged vows under an arch of antlers in her native Texas in May 2011, the couple has recently been able to hunker down in their rented home in Hollywood (where Shelton tapes The Voice).

Up next for country’s fun-loving couple: Each is nominated for four CMA Awards, which will be handed out Thursday; Lambert heads into the studio to start work on a new Pistol Annies album; and Shelton celebrates his new holiday album Cheers, It’s Christmas with a TV special called Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas, airing Dec. 3 on NBC.

Again, of course they’re acting like Newlyweds because they are! They’ve only been married a year and a half and they never see each other. Also, the cover on People says at the bottom “ALL ABOUT THEIR BABY PLANS” in all Kanye-caps like that, but you might not be able to see it under the ad. Miranda is just 28, they have time. I really thought she was about 35 and might be having fertility problems, but it turns out she’s much younger than I assumed. I bet they will have kids.

As for this couple, I have to admit I don’t give a crap. I don’t wish them ill, but I really don’t care how they’re doing. I mean, ever since Blake Shelton bragged about running over innocent box turtles with his car for kicks he’s been dead to me. Some of you clued me in that Miranda is no better, and that she once killed a baby alligator with Blake on a sports show. (Link leads to video.) So they’re jerks. There’s a difference between hunting for meat or to cull the population and doing it just to kill animals that are minding their own business. I don’t think they’re this great example of a down home couple. Especially given how they got together.

    Little bitty eyes and a giant ass forehead. Who are these people again?

  2. itstrue says:

    Well take heart…after a kid or two her lower body is gonna be a nightmare. They’ll both be sorry,hahaha.

  3. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Aren’t the CMA Awards tomorrow night? Maybe they are last minute campaigning?

  4. Jennika says:

    “wild marriage”? hahahah yea okay… She seems like one of those women who act all perfect and super Christian with a wonderful marriage, but you know she’s really a cheating bi-otch

  5. HotPockets says:

    I didn’t really know anything about Blake Shelton, but after watching the voice occasionally I have to admit that I am not impressed. There is something very unsettling about him, he is just sort of creepy, even more so than Adam Livine and Ceelo and that’s saying a lot.

  6. Jay says:

    My boyfriend is from the deep South (like, deeeeeeeeeep deep) and got me into country music by getting me to listen to Blake Shelton’s “Hillbilly Bone”, so I have a bit of a soft spot for him. Never understood Miranda Lambert’s appeal at all, though.

  7. Happy21 says:

    I like their music and that is all. I don’t like them. They bother me and I don’t really know why. She seems like she would be a terrible bitch and he seems sleazy and their try-hard redneckness does them no favors.

  8. LeeLoo says:

    She is not cute. I sense she’s going to get fat after a couple of babies and there will be a this huge cheating scandal with Blake banging the next young and hot country star.

  9. 20Paws says:

    Geez, that Gold dress – put on some spanks and a bra please!

  10. anna says:

    I love Miranda. She’s super talented and seems really warm in interviews. This doesn’t sound like an ideal marriage though – they need to spend more time together or they will end up leading separate lives with no commonality.

  11. atorontogal says:

    Wonder why this b*tch gets a free skate and other so called cheaters we know are tarred and feathered at the drop of a hat? She admitted he was married but wanted him and went after him anyway. And personally I think she is as talented as Taylor Swift. In other words…not at all. As for him, he is a creepy letch imo. His comments about the young talent (girls) on the voice makes me very uncomfortable. Plus I think he is a raging homophobe.

  12. Kim says:

    I don’t know who they are .Britney looks good in that pic.Jen looks good.Something is different about Justin possibly the hair. He looks odd

  13. lem says:

    “if we spend too much time together, we’ll kill each other”

    so the solution is to see each other at least once every two weeks??? okay. O_o

  14. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Are there any authentically cool country stars of today – Yes, johnny and june carter cash back in the day but those days are long gone – don’t think so; this genre is even more cliched and hackneyed than other genre’s one of the many reasons why I don’t like it at all.

  15. Oi says:

    I can’t stand that this twit is so famous for being so try hard. Shut up Miranda. She comes off as a wanna be tough girl who would cry at the least bit of negativity directed at her.

    And she has no idea how to put on a concert. (Are links ok Kaiser?)

  16. BrandNew says:

    Why get married if you plan to be apart most of the time. Date each other for life…less messy. I predict cheating, lying and a divorce in their future

  17. LadyAnne says:

    That forehead is scaring me.

  18. Dahlia1947 says:

    Eh They’re just two cheating A*holes who hurt animals, like u said not to cull the population, but for the hell of it. Go away idiots!

  19. j.eyre says:

    Not only that but People just did an article on them – not a cover but still garnered a few pages. I read it solely to see where her admission of guilt was because that does seem to have been swept under the carpet since she first made it. Hmm, wonder what their game is?

  20. Newyorking says:

    Who are these losers again? Never heard of them. Why would People think that putting them on the cover will sell?

  21. oliveo says:

    Just watched the linked video… absolutely appalling. Before I felt pretty apathetic about the two of them, but now… just UGH. Horrible.

  22. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I cannot believe she’s 28. She can’t be….

  23. VGirl says:

    Miranda Lamber is a bitch. She is a fat girl who constantly is in the press spouting off about it is okay to be afat slob…her quotes are always innocuous and irritating! I have never wanted to slap a celebrity so badly…well except Paris Hilton and Donald Trump! AS for Blake, just shut up and sing! His music is good his personality is awful.

  24. VGirl says:

    A few of her assine comments:

    “I don’t care about being stick-thin. I don’t want stuff to jiggle. Really skinny actresses make me hungry—I see them and think, Honey, you need to eat!”

    “Somehow I always get stronger when I’m on my second drink”

    “It’s OK to be fat and lazy sometimes. But eventually you’re, like, Oh crap—I shouldn’t have done that!”

    Can we can the “who?” comments already, on any story? You dont know, google. Or don’t click. Or read the actial story. But the “who are they?” comments are tired, unoriginal, and not even close to clever.
    Enough.

  26. cherry bomb says:

    Except Blake us from Ada, OK, a southern border state. He is a creep,but I will say this : when he comes home he supports the small town mom and pop businesses. So he may be douche, but he remembers the little folks back home.

  28. Dorothy says:

    Why In the world would People magazine hold up these two as an example of good people , good marriage???? Why not Kris Jenner while your at it? My, how the morals and standards have fallen .

  29. Sam says:

    Blake and Miranda have always struck me as very much like those families who live in trailers and then go and hit the lottery. They basically stay the same as they were before, just now they have money. That’s how they’ve always come across to me. They might be rich now, but they never really forgot the old ways, hehe.

  30. Dani says:

    If anyone watches the view, is it me or does Liz want Blake SOOOO BAD? He makes it so obvious he’s avoiding eye contact #CHEATER

  31. L says:

    I will say that I appreciated Miranda for calling out Chris Brown at the grammys.

    And then her husband performed with Glen Campbell who beat the crap out of Tanya Tucker and apparently that was okay.

    They are both cheaters, and she tries way to hard to be a ‘tough country girl’ I can’t stand either of them.

    the we’re happilymarried People-cover-of-doom. it has happened so kany times i now just start the clock. appropriately sad ‘amicable’, we’re still friends divorce announcement in 3… 2…

  34. carol says:

    prediction. : Divorce coming. We all see it.

  35. INeedANap says:

    Ugh, they’re both talentless cheating trash. And Krispy Kreme help the babies born from them, their faces are really oddly smooshed and tiny-featured, those will not be cute babies.

  36. Southernbell317 says:

    I agree… I do NOT like these two as a couple… I also do not understand why they get a pass on the affair either.. it was and is disgusting when someone goes after a married man… if she was a WOMAN she would have stood back and waited until he was available and in the mean time lived her life.. they are both pure trash to me

  37. the original bellaluna says:

    I usually avoid the both of them, first because of the cheating (I heard that one A LONG time ago!), compounded by their innocent animal murdering. (If it’s not hunting or culling, it’s murder.) I even turn off the radio or change the station when their songs come on.

    But when I saw this cover story, my first thought was “next stop…divorce!” (As did midnightmoon.) I’m also willing to bet the “Wild” in their marriage is in reference to the wildlife they so enjoy killing.

    How many times have we seen the “There’s Nothing Wrong; We’re a Happy Couple” cover, only to read in the next couple of weeks (months?) the sad announcement of divorce? More than I can count!!

  38. Sara says:

    These two irk me and I’m not sure why. They have an aura of arrogance about them that is such a turn off to me.

  39. Shelly says:

    She looks like the bride of Chucky.

  40. qtpi says:

    He’s a huge cheat. Surely she knew that right?…. considering the beginning circumstances of their relationship?

    Friend of mine knows first hand he cheated in ND shortly after he got married.

    Why don’t these guys (and girls for that matter) stay single? And do whatever they want without complications?

  41. Elizabeth says:

    I love the helpful marriage hit that “we try never to spend more than two weeks apart”! Honey, you see your mother-in-law more than you see your husband, you see the Fed-Ex guy more than you see your husband. No wonder they’re not bored with each other – they still don’t know who the other person is really.

  42. Sweet Dee says:

    Soooo uh what’s his face doing in that cover photo?

    Nah, I didn’t scroll to the bottom just to say that. But I did read the comments and agree with other posters that they are trashy, lying cheaters and assholes, and this won’t last because he’s already cheated on her and will do so again less secretively. I’d like to add two words:

    1. Phony.
    2. Fivehead

  43. TG says:

    All I ever think when hear Blake Shelton’s name is turtle killer. Would never watch a show, buy a magazine or buy his or Miranda’s music until they change their tune. Low class scum of the earth.

  44. lisa2 says:

    Week after week People mag confirms I made the right decision years ago to cancel my subscription.

  45. Bluedog says:

    Wow. Just a whole lot of hate in these comments. Call out their behavior if that’s what you have an issue with but to trash talk his looks (he’s ugly, face too big for his head, Monchichi-looking ugly douche) and her looks (she’s fat, big forehead, needs a bra, should wear Spanx, is going be a fatass after kids) or just their personas (trailer trash rednecks who eat Krispy Kreme) is so juvenile, so boring, so UNINTERESTING. Geesh!

  46. Moana says:

    Judging them and defending AngieJo and all the other Hollywood hoes? What a lot of hypocrites since you’re not country music fans (neither am I). Ugly.

  47. Kelly says:

    They are both trash in my opinion. It also makes me like Reba McEntire less because she likes him so much. Ugh!

  48. Kimberly says:

    If you do not like them why read or speak about them?
    They live in the small town of Tishimingo, Oklahoma, and live an actual pretty normal life. Much better than most celebrities who buy anything in everything and end up going broke having to do stupid little side jobs just to pay their debt. Miranda and Blake are actually very nice people in person. They don’t think they are better than anyoneelse and they do still live like they did before either of their careers. Why would Mirandas quotes upset you? She is comfortable in her skin, and making a point that you don’t have to weigh 90 lbs. That is horrible for anyone to say anyone is going to get a divorce, why would you wish that on anyone? You are so upset over their alleged affair? What about Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and George Jones (to name a few)..they all had affairs.. But wait.. I guess it is different because they are legends? Do you know Miranda picks up stray dogs she sees no matter the place and finds then good homes? You really shoukdn’t judge people that you do not even know. It is so easy to poke fun when you are strictly going by rumors and not the facts. Point is, if you don’t like them, move on and don’t worry about them.

    • TG says:

      Running over turtles and tweeting about it is not normal. He is a weak man for taking pleasure in deliberately running over helpless and harmless creatures. Don’t tell me he was joking. No one jokes about that. He only tweeted he was joking because he got so much deserved backlash. I used to think she was aborable and he was too until he tweeted about running over turtles and from these comments she isn’t much but I can’t say since I haven’t bothered to read about her since I don’t like weak women.

  51. Bergerina says:

    I will admit I do not like any of their music, but I do wonder, what is it with country stars – Swifty, miranda, Blake – and their squinty eyeballs?

  52. Iggles says:

    Ugh! They’re jerks!! Anyone who messes with turtles is on my sh*t list!!

    And, good golly her head is WEIRD looking! Her face looks all scrunched together, and her forehead is HUGE! She’s not pretty..

    He’s no prize though. With so much time spent apart, and the sketchy way they started, I have no doubts that he’s cheating on her!

  53. JPC says:

    Ugh. She’s so trashy looking. She’s only 28? She looks like she’s pushing 40. And him with the poor turtles, with the scent of eau de douchebag wafting off of him anyway….just NO. No on these two.

  54. Kahrvt says:

    Go Kimberly!! Well said. Your comment made my made. By the way– she’s right!!

  55. Ran Fan says:

    It’s just unfortunate y’all focus on negative aspects of this couple. I love them both and have seen them in concert. They’re country folks what do y’all expect!? Miranda is a gorgeous
    women I idolize her. She lets women feel secure because she is secure in.her.body! She has a “normal” figure, so go ahead and hate, that’s just what they want (:
