Miranda Lambert Hopes "Vice" Makes People Feel Less Isolated
With its moody vibe and hard-hitting, relatable lyrics, there was no question that anyone listening would feel an instant connection to both the song and its singer -- and that's exactly what Miranda was hoping for.
"I just hope that everybody that hears it can kinda feel like they're not on an island," she told Sony Music. "That we all have things in our life that aren't necessary pleasant to talk about, but this song is just honest as you can get about emotions, and letting raw emotions live where they live until you move on to a happier place. It's kinda the cycle of life, we can't all be sunshine and roses everyday and sometimes when we're not we find things that make us feel better at the moment and that's what a vice is."
Personally, I think it's safe to say she achieved just that.
Miranda also wanted to make sure her fans know that the song came from a place of pure honesty and heartbreak.
"I think when you go through something in your life that's hard, you learn what you run to, and what you run from, and sometimes that comes full circle," she continued. "It's a very clear image of somebody that's willing to just lay it our there and be honest."
You go, girl.
Garth Brooks might be the most generous superstar on the planet. He also loves being a dad as much as loves being the highest-selling individual musical artist of all-time. And if you ever doubted that fact, just check out what he did during a recent show.
Brooks helped a happy couple with their gender reveal on stage, but before doing so he offered up a lot of sweet advice, "The only thing better than one is 50 — as many as you can afford. It's awesome. You'll see. Once they give you that baby, you'll go 'I'll take 100 more of these, man.'"
I love the South-- its lakes, its river, its natural beauty, and even its abandoned buildings, churches, and forgotten plantations. There's something fascinating about seeing these man-made places that nature has reclaimed. The glory days of these places are long since gone, leaving only overgrown ruins, but it's that hint of glory that only adds to the mystery and makes you want to see these places for yourself.

I've never understood children's toys that simulate the banality of adult life. I've seen toy vacuums, toy lawn mowers, and little kitchenettes. Why are we so interested in pretend chores as kids?
Mattel has taken things a step further with their newest Barbie playset. This Barbie comes with a cute little dog that winds up and walks on release. And better yet, every few steps it's drops out little brown tic tac shaped turds. How fun! They've really distilled the most joyous moments of dog-ownership, haven't they? The dog doesn't bark, or wag its little tail, or I don't know, lick Barbie's face when she gets home. It poops. Then Barbie uses her pooper-scooper to clean it up.
