Aw, Blake Shelton Is Gwen Stefani’s ‘Best Friend’

Gwen Stefani discussed her love and appreciation for Blake Shelton at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards on Monday (Nov. 14, 2016).

Stefani, who wore a smoky, flowing Marchesa gown to the event, told Entertainment Tonight that Shelton helped her heal following her public separation from Gavin Rossdale in August of 2015. “It’s incredible to have a best friend like that guy,” said Stefani. “He’s an amazing person.”

The “Misery” singer said that she was grateful for her “incredible year,” which includes her honor as Glamour’s Woman of the Year. She told ET, “I was so blessed to have music as an outlet and to be able to share my story and to get all that love. It was basically like giving and receiving of love all year long through music.”

Stefani feels as though someone told her to wake up this year and begin anew. “I thought I was seeing in color, but now I’m really seeing in color,” she said. “I didn’t know I was in a cocoon ready to bust out.”
