Miranda Lambert admits that Blake Shelton's success on NBC's The Voice might have been a contributing factor in their divorce several years ago due to all the attention the couple got from the paparazzi and tabloids. She told the Los Angeles Times, "I’m already very private and protective. And choosing the job I chose — I mean, I get onstage, I’m in front of people. But I didn’t choose random photos of moments when I wasn’t at work.” Miranda especially disliked living in Hollywood part-time with Blake saying, “It taught me that Hollywood is not anything I want to be part of.”
Miranda said that Blake's popularity made them tabloid targets, describing the experience as “a shock to my system.”
She said she prefers the “family feel” of Nashville where she currently resides with her husband, former NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin. Of course, Blake is also remarried to Gwen Stefani.
Miranda released her new album, Palomino, last week.
