Gwen Stefani called boyfriend Blake Shelton the “Michael Jackson of country music” following him being awarded the 2015 CMT Artists of the Year in Nashville on Wednesday. To congratulate him, the singer also posted a video of a woman having Shelton’s face painted on her fingernails. Watch below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Shelton was among the five honorees to be handed an award at CMT’s annual event, which pays tribute to the top country music artists of the year. On Thursday, Stefani posted a cool, fast-motion Instagram video capturing a person having the country star’s face painted on her nails. She captioned the footage, “Congrats @blakeshelton #cmtartistoftheyear #michaeljacksonofcountrymusic.” Stefani also included emojis of a horse, daisies, clapping hands, and a cow to go along with her message.

Last month, Gossip Cop noted Stefani and Shelton went public with their romance. But in the time since, we have corrected numerous inaccurate tabloid reports about the couple, including pregnancy, marriage, and even break-up rumors. We’re happy to report Stefani gushing over her boyfriend’s Artists of the Year honor is very real. Watch Stefani’s celebratory video below, and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
