Blake Shelton Talks Divorce From Miranda Lambert and What Is Next For Him
Blake Shelton seemed to be having a rough summer when he and Miranda Lambert split but then it was confirmed that he and No Doubt front woman Gwen Stefani were an item. She has said that he is “rad” and called him “hot” and noted that he helped her through her divorce from Gavin Rossdale. Both Gavin, 50 and Miranda, 31 have claimed that they are happy for the new couple; sources even told E! that Miranda saw it coming. Now, Blake, 39 is opening up about life post-divorce and what he has in store next. Earlier today, Shelton appeared on “The Today Show” with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. However, they could not talk about his relationship with Gwen, 46 as this was pre-taped. No one had any confirmation that they were a couple yet (her rep confirmed the news last Wednesday, the same night as the Country Music Awards).
Gifford was ready to talk about women and the type that Shelton had as she asked if he liked them easy or hard to get: “Is it true that though women who play hard to get become much more interesting like immediately?” Blake was ready with an answer for this one: “No I don’t have time for that crap. I want it now.” Well then! He seems to like his women like he likes his alcohol: straight, no chaser and that seems to be the type of fierce female Gwen is. Not saying Miranda is not a tough chick as she and Blake shot their own wedding meal but there is a fourteen year age gap between the two women. Hoda and Kathie Lee also took note of how trim and handsome Blake looked, to which he responded: “The first half of the year, the divorce (from Miranda Lambert) happened and, I don’t know, I just stopped eating. I really just stopped eating a little bit.
“I didn’t really think about it, and so now I feel like that happened so long ago, I lost some weight and now I’m like, ‘How did I do that? I need to do that again!'” On top of looking good and seemingly feeling good, Blake is set to host the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon in March. “My agent called and was like, ‘Man, you know, is there anything that you can think of that you’d want to do?’… and I actually had been thinking, ‘I want to host those Kids’ Choice Awards!’ I want to get slimed!” Looks like he is not only physically lighter but so is his spirit.
