Blake and Miranda Engaged!

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are ENGAGED!!!!!!!! He went the old-fashioned route when he popped the question May 9.

“He called my dad and got his blessing first,” Lambert tells People. “That was so Southern and old-school and perfect.”

And then Blake presented Miranda with a diamond-and-platinum ring he chose on his own. “I was so proud of him,” says Lambert. “We’ve been together five years, so he knew exactly what I wanted but it’s so much more perfect than I could have picked out myself.”

Shania Twain "Managing Well After Split"

twainUs Magazine - June 12, 2009 9:32 AM PDT

One year after her split from her husband, Shania Twain says she's "managing very well, in fact.

"I'm enjoying my child, friends and family like I haven't in years, and it's great..." continues Twain in a letter to her fan club on her Web site.

"I've been experiencing and seeing new things every day, living life with a different and more optimistic attitude," the singer goes on.

Twain and Robert "Mutt" Lange separated in May 2008 following news of his affair with Marie-Anne Thiebaud, Twain's longtime friend and secretary.

At the time, Twain said: "I need some time to heal this broken heart, but make no mistake: I will be back and hopefully stronger than ever."

The country singer went on to dazzle at the Country Music Awards last November -- and debut her relationship with Thiebaud's ex husband, Patrick.

In her new letter to fans, Twain says she doesn't need to rehash the pain of her breakup.

"The personal issues that took place just over a year ago have been well documented, and theres no need to go into more detail here," she writes. "Since then, I've been inspired by my pain to write and use writing as a therapy through the suffering. I truly wouldn't wish this on anybody as a means to get inspired, but it's been a productive period with so much emotion trying to find it's way out."

She's focused on songwriting and raising her 7-year-old son with Lange, Eja D'Angelo, in Switzerland.

"As many things as there have been to write about through this difficult time in my life, healing is serious business and has taken a lot of the wind out of my sails, slowing me down at times," she writes. "As you know, I am a mom and all my energy goes to making sure my little man is healthy and happy in every way. This is a full time job, as any parent understands, but especially difficult when you are battling your own personal crisis at the same time while trying to spare your child of being affected by your own suffering.

"During this intense period, I was managing to hide my devastation from Eja and cried only when I was alone," she confesses.

"One time when I was having a weak moment listening to some sad music and sobbing and slobbering over my computers keyboard, Eja walked up behind me and asked me why I was crying," she goes on. "He wasn't sad at first -- just totally surprised to see his mom crying (he is seven and never saw me cry before), and didn't know what to make of it.

"I was quick on my feet to answer him though and told Eja that music was very powerful and can make people quite emotional," Twain continues. "It can make you want to dance, feel angry, happy or sad and that this song was sad and made me cry. He accepted this, hugged me and went back to what he was doing. Phew, that was tough!"

Life has returned to normal.

"Each morning I put my son on the school bus, feed our two dogs Sony and Dolly, drink my orange juice and sit down at the computer to write," she says.

Her songs "often comes out in the form of poetry, diary notes or e-mails to friends," she says. "I often go back to my e-mails for song ideas. When I write in letter form, I don't hold back."

But she's also taken a few chances.

"I've jumped out of an airplane at 10,000 feet, I'm riding Spanish and Arabian horses, traveling to exotic places, I've been deep sea diving for the first time!" she writes. "I pull the odd all-nighter, read more books, listen to Eja's favourite music with him, LOUD (ironically his favourite band is ACDC) and basically I'm enjoying life."

Twain is grateful to her fans.

"The many blogs and e-mails have warmed my heart, strengthened my confidence, given me courage, and have often even made me laugh out loudin a good way! I know I am not alone and realize through your support that you are all [rooting] for Eja and I, and our well-being."

"Time has a way of making everything right, and it is my hope that good music will eventually come out of it," she says, explaining the delay in putting out her next album. "I say 'good music' since I don't want to just throw anything at you, just for the sake of hurrying up to get it out."

Twain signs off: "Till next time, my friends. Be well, and peace and happiness to all of you. Love, Shania."

Toby Keith vs The Press!

Toby KeithEthan Hawke might want to avoid crossing paths with Toby Keith in the near future.


The country star lit into the actor for an article Hawke wrote in the new issue of Rolling Stone about Kris Kristofferson. In it, Hawke refers to a blowup Kristofferson had with an unnamed country star back in 2003 that sounds a lot like Toby Keith.

But a furious Keith, speaking backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards, said it wasn't true, and added that Hawke did not name him in the story because he did not want to face him later.

"I don't know Ethan Hawke. Ethan Hawke wanted to do some kind of superficial Rolling Stone article. And he did everything he could to make his story the greatest story ever in Rolling Stone," Keith said. "And it was a fictitious (expletive) lie. O.K?

"He didn't even call me by my name. ... He called Norah Jones, Ray Charles, everybody else by name. Willie (Nelson), Kris (Kristofferson). Why didn't he call my name? Why didn't he say Toby Keith walked through and said this (expletive)? Right? You know why. You know why. You know as good as anybody why. He didn't want to (expletive) deal with the aftermath."

In the story, Hawke claimed he witnessed the confrontation backstage at Nelson's tribute concert for his 70th birthday at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The article does not name Keith but says it was a country singer who "had a monster hit about bombing America's enemies back into the stone age." In 2002, Keith had the song "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American)" that threatened retribution for the 9/11 attacks.

Hawke said the argument began with the "Star" telling Kristofferson: "None of that lefty (expletive) out there tonight, Kris."

Hawke said Kristofferson then angrily confronted and asked him if he had ever served in the military.

"Have you ever killed another man? Huh? Have you ever taken another man's life and then cashed the check your country gave you for doing it? No, you have not, so shut the (expletive) up," Hawke recounted Kristofferson as saying. "You don't know what the hell you are talking about."

A spokeswoman for Hawke did not immediately return a message seeking comment. A Rolling Stone spokeswoman said that the magazine fully stands by the story and Hawke's reporting.

Keith directed his anger Sunday not only at Hawke but at a reporter from the Tennessean who wrote about the Hawke article and asked Keith about it backstage.

Kristofferson, in a statement, said he did not recall the incident and tried to be diplomatic to all sides.

"I would like to state for the record that I am friends with Ethan Hawke, Toby Keith and Tennessean reporter Peter Cooper. Although I do not remember the events at Willie's birthday party as reported in Rolling Stone, what does it matter?" he asked. "That was six years ago. I spoke to Ethan before I put out my statement and thanked him for the beautiful story he wrote for Rolling Stone and I also told him I did not recall the incident at Willie's birthday party. This is the last statement I will put out about this nonsense."
