Her new album has officially dropped and fans are loving her songs--but did Gwen Stefani diss new beau Blake Shelton's ex-wife Miranda Lambert in one of her new songs?
The song "Rare," from the new album This Is What The Truth Feels Like, definitely seems to be a love song for Shelton, one he even joked about on Twitter which cemented belief it was about him.
Hey @gwenstefani... My favorite song on your album is "Rare".. Just thought I'd let you know.

"Hey @gwenstefani...My favorite song on your album is 'Rare'...Just thought I'd let you know," Shelton wrote.
Shelton has proven himself to be a big supporter of his girlfriend's album in general, also sharing on social media that he made sure to get himself more than one copy.

"I may have gone overboard..." He captioned a photo of five copies of the album.
However, his admission about loving the song (and the album in general), has brought more attention to the song, and upon further scrutiny, many have wondered if the song also manages to throw a diss towards Miranda Lambert--and even seems to allege that she was the one who walked away from the relationship she had with Shelton, not the other way around.
"...You know I would be dumb to give perfection up. You're rare...And I'm loving every second of it, you know? You're rare...and only a stupid girl would let you go," she sings in the song.
Many have interpreted the lyrics as being a direct slam to Lambert for letting her relationship with Shelton fall apart, though it's never been confirmed why exactly she and Shelton parted ways after four years of marriage and a decade together overall.
However, it appears Shelton may be addressing his divorce with Lambert in his own album, with his first single, "Came Here To Forget," causing waves when he released it last week, with his own lyric that seems to hint that he and Stefani went through the same experience with their divorces.
