Miranda Lambert Shows Off Her Crazy Side in ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ Video
Miranda Lambert is a bit of a Stepford Wife in her ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ video. She’s quite the actress, showing off her crazy side with reckless abandon — but she makes nutty look good. Her character pops Rx pills, which she washes down with a glass of scotch. She’s got a fancy house and lots of swanky things, but none of it’s making her happy. Despite that heavy theme, the video is fun and Lambert is a hoot, chewing the scenery as she comes undone.
Throughout the video, Lambert does questionable things, like lounging in the tub while fully clothed, carves up her unsuspecting dinner by herself, wielding a knife like its a weapon and thrashes around on the couch and her bed.
Lambert is the sole star of the ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ video, so it’s up to her to be believable and captivating for the entire span of the clip. And trust us, she is! She does unstable so, so well.
It’s fun to watch Lambert lose her mind and unravel, with her blonde hair all disheveled, rips in her fishnet stockings and her eyes full of crazy.
The overarching theme of the video is that what you see isn’t always what you get. On the surface, Lambert is rich of privilege and pulled together. But behind those closed mansion doors, she is coming apart at the seams and we’re glued to the screen.
It’s campy and silly, while socially aware, like John Waters movie, with quite a bit of a tongue-in-cheek elements, too.
