Everyone and their second cousin knows about Blake Shelton and Lambert's divorce, and some could say that on this song, Lambert uses that in order to get people more interested in the song. But even though this song is about how Lambert reacted to the divorce, it's not as blatant as say, a Taylor Swift song. This song doesn't talk about Blake: this talks about her. As she wrote so eloquently in a recent social media post after "Vice" went No. 1 on iTunes:
"The last year of my life has been one of heartache and healing, ... Of learning to be honest .... Accepting the flaws and celebrating the smiles. Finding peace in dark places ... having some moments alone with me. Facing fears and feelings... All of them. I got to know my guitars...became friends with a pencil and paper ... Used melodies to lead me places I had never been.... Made music with my friends. Because music is medicine. This means the world to me. Thank you for joining me on this journey."
