Gwen Stefani Misses Blake Shelton On ‘The Voice’
Gwen Stefani has been joining her Season 24 The Voice coaches Reba McEntire, Niall Horan, and John Legend in doing interviews as the show awaits its premiere on Monday (9/24) on NBC. In a recent sit down with Access Hollywood, flanked by her co-stars, Gwen expressed that she misses her husband, Blake Shelton.
She told them, “I never want a season without Blake for the rest of my life, guys.” Stefani said that he’s “just chilling right now.” She noted that it’s the first time in sixteen years that he’s not on a schedule. Stefani added, “I am happy for him.”
Gwen also recalled when her husband said he wanted to leave the popular show. She said she remembered he wanted to stop for a couple of seasons, and she said to him, “I was like, ‘I won’t even know who you are if you’re not on The Voice.'” But now that he is off the show, she realizes he’s “the same Blake no matter where he goes.”
Not long ago, Shelton posted a cover image of Gwen’s song on Instagram and wrote, “My wife put out a new song today. You know… THE GWEN STEFANI!!!!!!! Go listen, people!!!! It’s a hit!!!!! I’m so proud of you, @gwenstefani!!!.”
Hours later, Blake posted a video clip of himself in his farm garb singing alternate words about a tree to the melody of Gwen’s new song. He captioned the clip on Instagram, “Playing the S— out of @gwenstefani’s new song “True Babe”!!! Even writing new lyrics!!” #truebabe #gwenstefani
The lyrics to the song include, “Your tattoo still looks cute to me / Cute to me / We’re old news, but you’re new to me / New to me / I wanna fly to your shows / Wanna wake up in your clothes / Come get you tipsy at 6:30 / Wanna take tonight slow / Yeah, it’s alright in my life.”
