Miranda Lambert isn't a fan of Chris Brown, and she doesn't care who knows it. In a new interview for the cover of Redbook's February issue, Miranda says she stands behind her tweets about the rapper, who assaulted his then-girlfriend, pop star Rihanna,in February of 2009, just before the Grammys. The pair have since been spending time together again as a couple.
"I wanted everyone to know that I don't agree with the message it's sending to young women," Miranda says. "It's not okay. At all. To be celebrated after doing something like that. I don’t think it's right, I never will, and I will stand by what I said 'til the day that I die."
After last year's Grammy Awards, Miranda tweeted she was upset the R&B singer got two performance slots on the show, saying, "He beat on a girl…not cool that we act like that didn't happen."
Miranda also opens up about fiercely protective of her time alone with Blake Shelton. She tells Redbook magazine,
"He's the sweetest guy. Like, he will talk to anyone, sign anything, take a picture with everyone. And if I don't stop it at some point, it ruins our whole night. I have to be the bad guy. The people are like, 'Oh, God, don't mess with her, she'll murder people.'"
The magazine with Miranda on the cover hits newsstands on January 15th.
Thank you Miranda for your stance on Chris Brown! I feel the same way. It is a horrible example for our youth and pretending it didn't happen doesn't make what he did O-Kay.
