Country music star Miranda Lambert recently opened up about the craziest gifts she gets for Christmas — revealing that one fan sends her firearms every year, which she finds “pretty badass.”
Lambert graces the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s January issue, where she discussed some crazy Christmas gifts she’s gotten from “one guy who’s been a fan for a long time.”
“It sounds weird, but he sends me pistols for Christmas, which is awesome,” Lambert told the magazine’s Katie L. Conner. “What other person can say my fans send me pistols for Christmas? It’s pretty badass.”
Lambert added that she’s “not all about gun rights and all this stuff,” but said she was brought up with a proper respect for them as the daughter of a police officer.
“I don’t have a stance on anything except what I was taught from day one: gun safety,” the country star told Cosmo, adding: “But I live by myself now, so yeah, I have a pistol, are you crazy?”
In her interview, Lambert also opened up about her divorce from fellow country star Blake Shelton for the first time. Shelton has since moved on to a relationship with No Doubt frontwoman and The Voice co-host Gwen Stefani, but Lambert is seemingly taking it slowly.
“We were together for 10 years, married for four, were very quickly divorced, and are friends. I’m still processing everything and figuring out where to go and what happened,” she said. “[Marriage is] a tough business, and we gave it our best college try… If I ever were to get married again — which is completely not on my radar at all right now — I feel like it’s not about it being a step in life. It’s not about a piece of paper or a diamond. It’s the way you feel about somebody and the commitment in your heart.”
The January issue of Cosmopolitan is on newsstands now.
