Blake Shelton ‘Today’ Show: Gwen Stefani Relationship “An Odd Idea” (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop reported, Shelton and Stefani performed their new duet, “Go Ahead And Break My Heart,” for the first time on “The Voice” last week. “The reaction to it has just been crazy,” Shelton now acknowledged on “Today.” The country star further noted that he initially started writing the song “just to try and impress” Stefani, explaining, “I sent it to her just half done and said, ‘I wrote a song, kind of about you,’ and she wrote the next verse and sent it back to me.”
Shelton continued, “And so, it was like, ‘Well, we have a song together. That’s kind of cool!’ I decided to put it on the record and this crazy stuff started happening.” When asked about the public’s interest surrounding his and Stefani’s romance, Shelton said, “It’s a little weird, but I get it… We could not be, on paper, any more different.” He noted, “I’m a country singer and she’s a ska, rock, pop, whatever it is. It’s just an odd idea. But man, it’s a lot of fun. I’ve got to be honest about that.”
The singer also admitted that his new album, If I’m Honest, is “representative of the last year of my life.” He joked, “I figured because everyone else is cashing in on my life, I might as well too. So, that’s what the record is.” Shelton’s appearance was capped off by a performance of “Came Here To Forget,” which Stefani also inspired. Watch Shelton’s “Today” interview below!
