Pink hair, don’t care? Not when it comes to Miranda Lambert. Just hours after Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani confirmed their relationship, his ex-wife teared up during her 2015 CMA Awards performance.
Miranda Lambert, 31, couldn’t hide her true feelings at the 2015 CMA Awards on Wednesday night, Nov. 4 in Nashville, Tenn. Performing her powerful single “Bathroom Sink,” tears welled up in her eyes as her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, 39, was nowhere to be found. Ouch.
Well, that was certainly unexpected. For the first time since her divorce, Miranda took the 2015 CMAs stage all by her lonesome with pink highlights and a matching guitar. However, the only thing on everyone’s mind were the tears she couldn’t seem to hold back no matter what song she chose for the evening.
Interestingly enough, Miranda performed “Bathroom Sink,” which is all about facing the public even when you’re at your absolute worst. Miranda herself said, “It’s exhausting… all the stuff that goes into just going out into public sometimes. 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,” while explaining the song to SPIN in an interview from 2014.
Despite the heartache Miranda was obviously feeling, especially after her ex-husband not only confirmed his romance with his new girlfriend but also put on a killer performance at the very same show, she looked absolutely stunning. Miranda is incredibly brave for facing a crowd of so many familiar faces at a time when her personal life has become such a massive center attention. You go girl!
