Female radio airplay, stardom and lounging around – Miranda Lambert opens up about all that and more in a new interview with Redbook.

The proud Texan and reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year reveals among other things that she’s not very good at superstardom. “I’m not actually a very good famous person at all,” she tells Redbook. “I hate cameras. I don’t love the spotlight. It was a big shocker to me that the music business is 80% business and 20% music. I was like, ‘I didn’t know I signed up for all this other stuff.'”

Miranda doesn’t pull punches when asked about the disparity between males and females on the radio. “It’s B.S., straight up!” she says. “Carrie Underwood still struggles, and that just blows my mind because she’s got a million hits and she’s Carrie freakin’ Underwood. I tell them at the radio stations, ‘Just play one of us; it doesn’t have to be me. Then we all win.’ I’ll fight for it until I can’t no more.”

When she’s not relaxing at home, that is. Her favorite way to do it? “Shark Tank and yoga pants, and I’m the happiest person,” Miranda tells the publication. “I watch Tiny House Nation on a Friday night, and I’m like, ‘This is it! Frozen pizza. Woo!'”
