Miranda Lambert Avoids Reading Too Many Bad or Good Reviews

A lot of artists don’t like to read their own reviews because they don’t like to read the negative reviews, but Miranda Lambert says she’s also careful not to look at too many good reviews.  She tells Parade magazine, “Sometimes my publicist or manager will send me some that are really good, but I feel like it can become a bad habit to take all that to heart. The good is great but then there can also be bad ones, and I think if you’re too hard on yourself about it you’ll over-think everything.”

 

Besides, Miranda is confident in the music she’s making and who she is as a person, so she really doesn’t need to read a lot of other people’s opinions.  Miranda has softened her image up just a little bit in the last couple of years but she says, “I think I have a lot of different sides to me and I think that definitely over the years I’ve sort of [eased] off that tough girl image a little bit and shown more sides of myself. But that’s always going to be part of who I am…it’s what got me here and it’s kind of what built my career. I’m a feisty Texas girl and I always will be.”
