Miranda Lambert Uses Twitter to Speak Her Mind and Spy on Her Husband

Miranda Lambert Uses Twitter to Speak Her Mind and Spy on Her Husband

Randee St. NicholasMiranda Lambert isn’t afraid to speak her mind on Twitter, and you may recall she used the social network to call out Eric Church last month.  Miranda took issue with Eric’s statements about artists that got their start on TV music competitions.  Of course, Miranda got her start on Nashville Star, and her husband Blake Shelton is a mentor on NBC’s The Voice.

Eric issued a statement saying he never meant to offend anyone with his statements, and Miranda has moved on from the incident too.

“I think that anybody can get roped into a really bad interview situation,” Miranda says.  “I’ve had things printed about me before that sounded way worse than they were.”

Miranda adds that she and Eric are totally fine now, and there’s no ongoing feud to speak of between them.

She says, “It’s not really a feud.  It’s just ‘Dude, you totally messed up and you know it’ and you move on.”

Miranda has other uses for Twitter including following her favorite celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Jessica Simpson.  She also keeps an eye on her Blake’s wacky Twitter feed too.

“If I’m gonna check up on someone, it’s definitely Blake,” Miranda says with a laugh.  “I look to see who he’s following and why, and why they’re all hot girls.  Check his direct messages.  Things like that.  No big deal.”

Miranda will be checking up on Blake before hitting the stage in Columbus, OH, Thursday night.

12 Things Women Do Better Than Men

A recent study revealed that women are getting better looking through evolution; meanwhile, men are staying the same. After following more than 2,000 people through four decades of life, the study showed that attractive women had 16 percent more children than average-looking chicks and that beautiful people are 36 percent more likely to have a daughter as their firstborn. All those gorgeous daughters mean more beautiful women than in past generations

TALES FROM THE FISHBOWL,

TALES FROM THE FISHBOWL, DAY 5: I’M A SMALL TOWN

Welcome back to Tales from the Fishbowl, where we’re counting down one track per day until the June 19th release of Welcome to the Fishbowl. (Read our first entry featuring Kenny Chesney’s thoughts on the album as a whole here.)

Today on the countdown: “I’m A Small Town.” Listen to the exclusive premiere on AOL’s The Boot here!

We’ve all heard them – songs that romanticize life in small town America, waxing poetic about the streets and shops and tight-knit communities that make this country great. “I probably sing two in my set every night,” jokes Kenny. But for straightforward classic country anthem “I’m A Small Town,” writer Keith Gattis took a different approach: he told the story from the perspective of the town itself. “The town is talking about himself in first person, and everything he’s seen,” Kenny explains. “It gets to the heart, the foundation, all the common denominators that everyone feels growing up in a small town, and the mentality that comes with that.”

TIM PARTNERS WITH CHASE TO AWARD 25 HOMES TO VETERANS DURING THE SUMMER TOUR

Country music superstar Tim McGraw is launching a nationwide program called HomeFront in partnership with Chase and Operation Homefront to award mortgage-free homes to wounded warriors and servicemembers in need at each concert of his summer tour.

Additionally, both ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music, and The Premier Group on behalf of the North Carolina Furniture Manufacturers, have made substantial contributions to support the program throughout the summer.

McGraw has a long history and deep interest in supporting veterans and military families and wanted to find another way to honor our vets and give back to them for their commitment and service to our country. To kick-start the HomeFront program, McGraw will perform a special Memorial Day concert of remembrance and gratitude for servicemembers at New York City’s Beacon Theatre during Fleet Week in partnership with Chase and the United Service Organizations (USO).  The show will be streamed live via YouTube and to military bases around the world on The Pentagon Channel.

Red Solo Cup….I think I love you!

Red Solo cups have become the unofficial cup you HAVE to have at a party.  If you don’t have Solo cups or, even worse, if you have BLUE, YELLOW or CLEAR cups, people are gonna talk…

Anyway, there’s a rumor going around Facebook that Red Solo cups are actually SMARTER than you realized.  Those lines that wrap around the different sections of the cup aren’t just for decoration . . . they’re actually measurements.

The first line above the base is supposedly the one-ounce mark, if you’re having liquor.  The next line is at five ounces, if you want to be classy and drink wine from your plastic cup.  And the third line up is at the 12-ounce mark, for one full beer.

But according to Snopes.com, it’s an urban legend.  They contacted the Dart Container Corporation, which makes the cups, and they said, quote, “The lines on our Party Cups are designed for functional performance, and are not measurement lines.

“If the lines do coincide with certain measurements, it is purely coincidental.”  Which sorta makes sense, since a shot is 1.5 ounces anyway.

Homeless man allowed to keep $77,000 he stumbled upon

If you were given or found $77,000 Today What is the first thing you do with it?

Finders, keepers … losers, weepers, right?

A homeless man is $77,000 richer after being awarded the cash and gold coins he stumbled upon in a Texas park earlier this year.

Timothy Yost, 46, reportedly discovered the loot in January while going to wash his feet in the Colorado River. According to the Austin American-Statesman, Yost told police he kicked a bag he’d spotted and it jingled. Inside was a mound of wet cash and South African coins.

A bank teller called police after he tried to swap the damp dough for fresh bills. Yost showed officers where he made the discovery, but the city of Bastrop kept the money so police could investigate whether a crime had occurred and try to find the owner.

“Under common law in Texas, typically if it is buried and we are not able to find the rightful owner for the funds within the prescribed time period, then the finder of the funds can petition to be awarded those funds,” Bastrop Police Chief Michael Blake told Austin‘s Your News Now.

On Tuesday night, the City Council voted unanimously to give the bounty back to Yost.

“It is a great day for Bastrop; it is a great day for Mr. Yost,” his attorney, Aleta Peacock, told the American-Statesman.

Yost was not present. The newspaper reports he’s since been jailed for public intoxication and criminal trespass.

But he told Austin’s Fox 7 last month that his first purchase would be a car.

“I’ve been walking for so long,” he said.

Here’s hoping he makes bail and is behind the wheel of a new ride soon.
