This week everyone’s been talking about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s amazing duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.” The emotions in the song are so raw that it’s clear both artists have drawn inspiration from personal experience. But Shelton shared further very personal experiences on another one of his tracks, “I Bet You Still Think About Me.”
According to E! News, Shelton recently spoke about the track while performing in Los Angeles, saying, “It’s basically what it sounds like. At some point, whether you go through a divorce or a breakup or whatever, once you get past the anger and the frustration of it all, you kind of go into the sad part of it where it’s just like, ‘Gosh, how come that didn’t work out?’ And that’s what this song is about. Even though stuff didn’t work out, I bet you miss me a little bit. It’s a sad song.”
Fans have speculated that the lyrics are about his relationship with ex-wife, Miranda Lambert. And while we imagine it would be tough having sad lyrics written about you, Lambert is apparently not upset.
“Miranda is aware of what country artists do when creating new music,” a source shared with E! News. “She is not upset at the lyrics because she knows it’s just how it goes, especially as a country artist.”
“She is always thinking and currently working on new lyrics and song ideas and many of those ideas stem from the past, present and future experiences,” the sourced continued.
Another reason Lambert isn’t concerned whether the lyrics are about her or not is because, well, she’s over Blake Shelton. And she’s found happiness again, with Anderson East.
“Miranda and Anderson are talking about moving in with each other,” the source revealed. “It’s getting pretty serious. They want children and have shared their thoughts with each other on that subject.”
