Happily Singing Divorce Blues
9/2/2015 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It went down Tuesday night at the ACM Honors in Nashville, TN. A post-breakup hot Lambert belted out Lynn's "Rated X," the controversial 1973 track about divorce. Sample lyrics: "Well if you've been a married woman and things didn't seem to work out/Divorce is the key to bein' loose and free so you're gonna be talked about ..."
It's unclear if Lambert picked the song herself, but she does admit it is perfect for her ... right now.
Bad news for Miranda though ... the song is about women empowerment and getting a divorce ... but Blake is the one that filed.

One of the kids on "Dance Moms" got a bunch of suspicious packages in the mail -- and the bomb squad was called in to destroy them.
According to a report, the packages -- sent to a P.O. Box in Allegheny, PA -- contained an Elvis blanket, a tribal-style blanket, a coffee maker, a scrapbook and handwritten letters. Authorities aren't revealing the intended recipient ... since he or she is a minor.
After intercepting the packages Tuesday at the post office, cops said there didn't appear to be any explosives -- but just to be safe, the bomb squad destroyed them with a water cannon.
The alleged sender has been identified, and postal inspectors are handling the investigation.

Collapses on 'Celeb BB' ...
'Almost Died' from Bee Sting
9/2/2015 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Janice Dickinson fell unconscious, live on TV ... after she got stung by a bee in the "Celebrity Big Brother UK" house -- and TMZ has learned it was touch and go whether she'd survive.
Janice was sitting in the Diary Room during Tuesday's broadcast ... begging producers to bring an EpiPen after she suffered the sting. She showed staffers just how bad it was -- one of her hands was almost purple, she was having trouble breathing, and panicked, "I don't want it to reach my heart!"
Then Janice appeared to have a seizure before collapsing and falling off the chair. Producers briefly cut away, but then returned to the drama. Some viewers were outraged the medical emergency aired live.
According to a 'Celeb BB' rep ... Janice was taken to a hospital for a few hours for treatment, and then returned to the house.
Sources who were in contact with Janice during her hospital visit tell TMZ ... it was very serious and Janice "almost died." We're told she's extremely allergic, but didn't have her own EpiPen with her in the house.
The fact that she's back in the house would lead you to believe Janice is okay, but show reps aren't saying anything more about her condition.

'DWTS' Is NOT a Reputation Resurrection
9/2/2015 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paula Deen scoffed at the notion she was doing "Dancing with the Stars" to restore her reputation.
Paula was in NYC, flanked by some pretty serious dudes, who clearly did not want her talking about the obvious. It's a big step for Paula, who hasn't done anything this high-profile since the racial stories broke.
She's in great spirits and vows she's not competing for show ... she's gunning to win.
'Little People, Big World' Kid
I'm Getting Screwed ...
Out of My Cash
9/2/2015 8:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Little People, Big World" star Jacob Roloff is turning on the show ... or he's turning on his parents -- it's unclear -- but he's definitely pissed about money.
Jacob posted a message saying, "Man I wish it didn't feel like I was getting fu*ked out of the money from the show that was my childhood right now."
Amy and Matt Roloff's 18-year-old son was not more specific about who he feels is ripping him off. It's worth noting ... Jacob was noticeably absent from a recent wrap-up special that included every other family member.
Sources connected to production tell us Jacob, like all minors on TLC programs, had his own bank account where his salary was regularly deposited during his 9 years on the show.
Jacob's been on the show since the start, but was not heavily featured in the most recent season.
We've reached out to TLC ... so far no word back.
Master P to Wife
You Can Stay in the House
... But No More Ragers with Your BF!!
9/2/2015 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Master P DOES have a limit ... when it comes to his estranged wife throwing huge parties with her boyfriend in a house where HE'S FOOTING THE BILL!
P ripped into Sonya Miller ... responding to the story TMZ broke -- she's filed court docs, bitching that Master P had blocked her from entering the Calabasas gated community where she lives with their 7 kids.
But Master P wants to make it clear ... he's fine with Sonya living in the house, "But I’m not going to allow access to her boyfriend and partying friends to come over and sleep where my kids are." He also accuses her of neglecting their children, saying -- " she doesn’t even take my kids to school and my sixteen year old failed all of her classes last year under her mother’s lack of guidance."
He says her court filing is simply a publicity stunt, and he can prove she's been parading people in and out of the gated community for her ragers ... "These records will be furnished to the courts to show the heavy traffic and penalties that I have had to pay for all the crazy parties she’s been having."
Master P says he just wants Sonya to clean up her act, get a job, and take care of the kids. He added, " I’m just fed up with the extra bs. I will always take care of my family and I wish the best for her, she’s the mother of my kids.”
Tupac Lambo Bombs on eBay
9/2/2015 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The hot rod's starting bid ... only $89,999 -- or best offer -- and that's with a meager 16,457 miles. The Lambo has a 10 cylinder engine, goes 0-60 in under 4 seconds and comes with custom suede interior.
Breezy had a tattoo artist paint Tupac's "Lord Knows" lyrics on the car's hood and roof. If you're a Biggie or Kanye fan, this one's not for you.
So far not a single taker. There's still several hours left to bid and several people watching ... so, it could be yours.
