MIRANDA LAMBERT, ahead of last night’s performance said she’s thankful people are noticing how happy she is. “I love playing music, but I didn’t sign up for people prying into my private life. It’s not like I can call in sick in this business.” That aside, she’s in a good place now that she’s happily married. Again. “I am who I am and right now I am genuinely happy. People are telling me I’m glowing from the inside.” She says those happy vibes are all over her new album, which is due out in the fall. Don’t worry, though. She’s still going to rock. “I would call it old Miranda, but a Miranda at a whole new level, if that makes any sense. It’s not going to be love song overload or anything like that. I made a career on being a rock and roller and I think fans are going to hear that throughout. “And yeah, there is this vibe of being happy that goes through this album. I am really, really happy.”

Justin Theroux — Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband — is accusing his Greenwich Village neighbor of being a “peeping-Tom” who keeps shining a flashlight into his apartment. Theroux and his downstairs neighbor, have been warring since 2017, when he and Aniston began a $1 million renovation without immediately installing soundproofing. They’ve been duking it out in court ever since. Despite a temporary restraining order that bars the man from contact with Theroux and the building’s board members, the downstairs neighbor “is now engaging in obsessive, peeping-Tom like conduct,” Theroux’s lawyer, wrote in a letter to the Manhattan judge handling the dispute, saying that every single night this week, the neighbor has been shining his flashlight onto Justin’s home. A security camera still-frames it showing the man lurking around Theroux’s home.

Midland guitarist JESS CARSON says one of the band’s career highlights was opening for Garth Brooks at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. They had never performed in front of 75,000 people and it was “absolutely insane.” And so was standing next to a legend. “One of the coolest parts for me was when he was sound checking. He’s playing ‘The River’ and ‘Thunder Rolls’. He’s going through all these songs and I’m just standing right next to him. It was crazy.”
