Blake Shelton is not pushing Gwen Stefani to make a joint album, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the claim. We're told it's fabricated.
HollywoodLife, which frequently publishes lies about the famous couple, quotes a so-called "source" as saying that Shelton wants him and Stefani to become "a modern version of Johnny and June Cash, so they can work together and tour together." However, the website conveniently backpedals by saying that the No Doubt singer "may not be onboard with Blake's idea."
The alleged insider continues, "Gwen is a little more realistic though, and she wonders how they could meld their very different music styles together, because she wants to always remain authentic." The suspicious tipster further contends that Shelton "constantly brings it up," but his girlfriend isn't sold on the idea as of now.
The blog is attempting to have it both ways. By saying Shelton wants to make a joint album and Stefani doesn't, the website won't be caught lying when they never release a record together. Regardless, the site's story is based on claims from an anonymous and seemingly nonexistent "source," but Gossip Cop checked in with Stefani's rep, who tells us on the record that the report is false.
It's worth noting, it doesn't make much sense to say that Stefani isn't open to combining their music styles together. Stefani and Shelton collaborated on the title track of her 2017 holiday album You Make It Feel Like Christmas. The couple also collaborated on the song "Go Ahead and Break My Heart" on Shelton's 2016 album If I'm Honest. The blog, however, never bothers to mention that the two have made music together before.
Additionally, when Stefani was asked in 2016 about the possibility of making a duet album with Shelton, she responded, "In my dreams..." It's clear the singer isn't at all averse to the idea of making an entire record with her boyfriend. Regardless of Stefani's feelings on the matter, the singer's spokesperson confirms that Shelton isn't "pushing" her to make an album.
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time we've had to call out HollywoodLife for pretending to have insight into the couple's career plans. Last month, Gossip Cop busted the blog for falsely claiming that Shelton and Stefani were doing a reality show together. No such project is in the works. This latest article surrounding a joint album is more fiction from the unreliable website.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
