Apparently, the Academy of Country Music Awards were last night, and while Miranda Lambert didn’t walk the red carpet — which isn’t surprising, given that this is her first post-divorce-announcement event — she did perform, and gave an award to Loretta Lynn:
I think this is very smartly done. She doesn’t look depressed in the least, but nor has she gone full-on I’M SINGGGGGGLE!!!!!!! in a short skirt and and tight spangles and loads of boobs and a hastily-rendered haircut. (All of which would be understandable but perhaps not wise in one fell swoop.) She looks nice but not noteworthy, pretty but relaxed about it, appealing but not needy. And I just have one question: When is that break-up album coming out? Because you know it’s going to be good.
