Blake Shelton Can’t Believe He’s Dating Gwen Stefani: ‘She Must Have, Like, Some Vision Problems’
Last night (Aug. 4, 2016), Shelton stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers and briefly opened up about his relationship with the singer. “I still can’t believe it,” the country singer admitted before joking, “I thought she must have, like, some vision problems … Maybe she needs help, I don’t know.”
Shelton went on to elaborate that some of the shock comes from the fact that neither singer really knew each other or their respective bodies of work before their whirlwind romance.
“I didn’t think I knew much of her music until I, until you go to one of her shows, and I remember — this has been like a month ago — she flew into Oklahoma and I was driving to pick her up at the airport,” he recalled. “And I was flipping through XM radio and I stopped on this song and I was like, ‘That voice sounds like Gwen. What in the hell is this — why don’t I know this?’”
“It’s this song called ‘It’s My Life,’ which was a huge record for [Stefani’s band No Doubt],” he continued. “And I’m going, ‘I didn’t know Gwen sang that song.’ I’ve always known ‘Hey Baby.’ I didn’t know she sang that freakin’ song. All these songs. It’s like, ‘Wow, that was you?! That’s you and we’ve kissed? Wow, that is amazing!’”
