Miranda Lambert Gets Revenge Tips From Carrie Underwood, Beyonce
You'd be smart not to mess with Miranda Lambert. She's one of those super tough country girls -- the kind who would seek revenge if you ever wronged her. Thankfully, we don't think she's out for blood, but in the October 27 issue of Rolling Stone, Mrs. Shelton dished her top revenge songs, naming some of country's other hit ladies, like Carrie Underwood and Loretta Lynn, as her favorites.
Lambert set the town ablaze in her own 2005 hit single 'Kerosene,' and says that she loves songs "that make you feel the emotion." When asked to compile a Top 10 list of the best revenge songs, the singer named her own Pistol Annies trio as the No. 10 revenge track with 'Trailer for Rent.' "I had to put my girls on the list," Lambert commented. "It's about a woman who's just tired of dealing with her man. She's not mad. She doesn't freak out. She just walks."
She also cited Tammy Wynette's 1967 hit 'Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad,' as well as sometimes country hitmaker Kelly Clarkson's smash, 'Since U Been Gone' and the classic kill your husband tune 'Goodbye Earl' by the Dixie Chicks.
In the Top 5, Lambert said she feels Underwood's 'Before He Cheats' is a great revenge song, revealing that she and the 'American Idol' winner sang it together recently. She added, "I love the video, where she smashes up the truck. I'm actually jealous of that part: I wanted to do that myself."
The 'Baggage Claim' songstress gave a nod to two of husband Blake Shelton's 'The Voice' co-judges, listing Cee Lo Green's 'F---- You' as No. 3 and Adam Levine's Maroon 5 track 'Wake Up Call' at No. 6. Like a true strong country woman, Lambert cited two fellow females in the top two spots, giving Lynn's 'Fist City' the runner-up position. "It's one girl telling another girl, 'I'm gonna kick your a--- if you don't stay away from my man,' which is awesome. I sing this onstage with the Pistol Annies."
