Fame has not prevented Miranda Lambert from living a normal life out in public — a luxury she attributes to her self-described resting bitch face

Miranda Lambert has reached the level of country superstardom where she’s used to walking red carpets, taking home awards, and playing to sold-out stadiums of adoring fans.

But fame has not prevented the 33-year-old singer from living a normal life out in public — a luxury she attributes to her self-described “resting bitch face.”

In an appearance on the Bobby Bones radio show on Tuesday, Lambert explained that her mean-mug isn’t intentional.

“I kind of have this, what do you call it, R.B.F.” she said. “I don’t mean to though — I just do my thing and drink Miller Lite and hang out with my friends.”

Her days in Nashville also include trips to Walmart and the popular establishments Winners (bar) and Losers (grill) — where she always tips 30 percent because she “wants to be known for good things like being a big tipper.”

“People are awesome,” Lambert continued. “Nashville is awesome – nobody cares. Everybody who’s anybody who’s my hero who lives here when I see them out, I don’t bug them.”

That doesn’t mean Lambert wouldn’t say hello to her favorite stars if she saw them out in public, especially Faith Hill.

“I haven’t bugged [her] for a picture yet but every time I’m around Faith Hill, I turn into a complete idiot,” she said. “I don’t know why, but it’s just Faith Hill. She’s so pretty and she’s just awesome. …The ’90s country, that’s where I sort of get stupid. Anyone from the ’90s country era.”

Also in the interview, Lambert revealed the fake name she used to use when ordering Starbucks and checking into hotels on the road.

“It used to be Tara Dactyl, but I had to change it because people figured it out,” she said. “That was my alter ego when I would get, you know, a little bit too much whisky in me probably … I was Tara for like 10 years!”

“Now I’ve changed my dinosaur to T-Ran,” Lambert said, adding that her nickname is Ran.

She also talked about how hard it is to adjust to recalibrate her body to a real bed after being on tour — saying, “I don’t sleep well after I’ve been on the bus for a while, in a bed that’s not moving. It takes a week to adjust.”
