Miranda Lambert took three weeks off in May to marry Blake Shelton, but you won't find her taking that long off work anytime soon. "I feel like I need a break sometimes, and then I have one, and then I'm like, "I want a gig. I want a gig," says Miranda. "I think it's very important to have that balance."
Even though she's got multiple platinum albums and number-one hits under belt, Miranda insists she can't afford to slack off now. She says, "I have a real strong drive to build an empire. That's what I'm trying to do. To build an empire, you don't take off work."
