Miranda & the Theme of Getting Even
Miranda Lambert is having great fun with her new song, “Only Prettier,” and part of the reason is because she says that the spirit of the song is so true to who she is — and she also loves that fact that it’s a whole new spin on the “getting even” theme, but this time, she’ll kill ‘em with kindness.

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
