You know you are fighting an uphill publicity battle when you decide you need a People Magazine cover to get your story out there. For the past couple of months, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have been fighting hard to try and get the rumors and whispers about their marriage to die down. The thing is, the whispers are just going to get louder and louder. Blake says in the cover story that everything is great between the couple and they share everything and there are no secrets and that their marriage is super strong. If there was nothing to the rumors and they were just rumors then why do you need a Kneepads cover? If there is nothing to them, they will just go away. Probably. Talking about them, just keeps it out there that much longer.
