In October, Kacey Musgraves stood barefoot in the middle of the woods and said “I do” to her best friend, Ruston Kelly. The two were dressed to the nines, with Musgraves in a plunging white gown and Kelly in a dark green jacket.
Fans were in awe of the first few wedding photos that Musgraves shared. Looking at the one above, it’s easy to understand why.
But on Monday (March 6), Musgraves shared a new pair of wedding photos that actually sparked a bit of controversy.
The two photos show Musgraves and her new husband at their wedding reception, where they decided to light up a couple of joints. Musgraves simply captioned the photos “lovestoned.”
Musgraves has never shied from talking about her use of marijuana and other drugs (she even admitted to using LSD once). Still, that didn’t stop some of her fans from expressing disappointment and outrage over her weed-smoking wedding photos.
Many people referenced Musgraves’ younger fans, arguing that she is setting a bad example for them by posting such photos. One commenter wrote in depth:
“Privacy in their own space is fine. It’s a plant yes, it’s a drug. Children do adore Kacey and she has a responsibility to uphold an image that doesn’t promote drug use.”
Others took a more blunt and brash approach, with one person writing, “You’re such a degenerate… This is disgusting.” Another kept their comments short, simply saying, “I wish you didn’t post this s—“
However, most of the comments were overwhelmingly positive. Many noted how Musgraves and Kelly are the perfect couple, while another fan said that she also smoked weed at her wedding.
Now we want y’all to chime in. What do y’all think about the two new wedding photos Musgraves just shared?
