Last night was the Country Music Awards, and it turned out to be a very rough evening for Miranda Lambert.
As she performed her hit song “Bathroom Sink,” it became impossible for Lambert to hide her true feelings. According to Hollywood Life, Lambert’s eyes welled up with tears as she sang her powerful song and her ex-husband Blake Shelton was nowhere to be found.
The song “Bathroom Sink” is about facing the public at the very worst, and considering the fact that Shelton had announced that he is now dating Gwen Stefani just hours before the show, that’s likely exactly what Lambert was doing.
“It’s exhausting… all the stuff that goes into just going out into public sometimes,” Lambert said in an interview last year. “I wish I could just not do it for a day and see what happens. The ‘Bathroom Sink‘ is the place where every women has to face who she really is and who she wants to be.”
We applaud Lambert for putting on a brave face last night, despite the fact that she was clearly heartbroken. Stay strong, Miranda!
