On Monday morning, Miranda Lambert released a sassy new single with the rest of her country supergroup, the Pistol Annies. The Lambert-written song, I Got My Name Changed Back, references her lengthy divorce proceedings from ex-husband, Blake Shelton.
The empowering tune was accompanied by a satirical music video, featuring the trio celebrating a glamorous trip to court with champagne and confetti.
While the music blends an upbeat tempo with a lighthearted feel and a rockin’ guitar solo, the lyrics sing a different tune. “Well I’ve got me an ex that I adored/But he got along good with a couple road whores/Got my name changed back,” Lambert sings.
Speculation has it that the lyric was meant to be written about Shelton’s partner of three years, Gwen Stefani. The two started dating shortly after his divorce from Lambert. (The pair met on the set of The Voice as costar judges.)
Lambert, Shelton and Stefani fans rushed online to voice their thoughts about the supposed diss track. One Stefani lover questioned why she was temporarily banned from Twitter for defending the couple.
She wrote, “Why [was I banned]? I was defending Blake Shelton and Gwen from psycho Miranda Lambert. Her new song calls Gwen a ‘road whore.’ Twitter excuses that behavior. I will continue to defend what I feel is right.”
Lambert, 34, pulled no punches and it seems she’s stirred up a storm fuelled by some bad blood.
Miranda Lambert performs during The Bandwagon Tour at Xfinity Center on July 21, 2018, in Mansfield, Mass.
It appears Shelton has moved on from Lambert and remains dedicated to the former No Doubt singer.
The famed Voice couple continue to share posts gushing over each other via Instagram.
Somehow it feels more like MY birthday everyday.. Happy Birthday @gwenstefani!!! I love you!!!
