Country music megastar Miranda Lambert took to her personal blog Four the Record on Monday to slam a story that alleged that she underwent weight loss surgery to achieve her talked-about new figure.
Blake Shelton's wife, 30, shared with fans: "Though I NEVER care what the tabloids have to say about me… I wanted to address this certain story they are running this week and set the record straight. I DID NOT have surgery to lose weight," she said up front. The fiery singer added, "That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good old fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield."

For the cake:
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp allspice
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon orange zest plus 1 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
For the frosting:
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup bourbon
2 tbsp light corn syrup
6 large egg whites
For the cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use butter to grease the bottom and sides of cake pans; place a circle of parchment paper in the bottom of each pan. Grease parchment and dust with flour, shaking off excess.
Using the smallest holes on a manual grater, or using a food processor, shred sweet potatoes. You should have about three cups. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, sugar, and brown sugar. Stir in oil, eggs, orange zest and juice, vanilla, and shredded sweet potatoes. Mix to combine.
Divide batter into pans and bake on center rack until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Place pans on baking racks and let cool five minutes. Invert pans to remove cake, and let layers cool completely, at least one hour.
For the frosting:
In a small saucepan, bring two cups of water to a boil. Place medium glass bowl on top of saucepan to create a double boiler. Add sugar, bourbon, corn syrup, and egg whites to bowl and heat until sugar is just dissolved, about three minutes. Remove bowl from heat. In a standing mixer, beat mixture on medium-high until stiff glossy peaks form, about five minutes.
Place one cake layer on cake stand or large platter. Cover top with frosting. Place second layer on top. Frost top, and sides, if desired. If not serving immediately, cover and store in a cool place. Prior to serving, use a kitchen torch to heat top of frosting until toasted and brown in places.
