Superstar Blake Shelton appeared on NBC’s ‘Ellen’ with host Ellen Degeneres earlier today (5/1). The pair discussed Shelton’s many ventures, his new music, and of course his relationship with pop icon Gwen Stefani.
Ellen introduced the singer, sharing, “Our next guest went from being People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ to the mayor of Uglyville in the new animated film ‘Ugly Dolls’, please welcome my friend, Blake Shelton.” She also joked earlier in the show that Shelton’s real name is “Mr. Stefani.” Shelton shared how much he loves reconnecting with Ellen stating, “Thanks for having me back. You have me on this show all the time now. I love it!”
Although known primarily for being a successful country music singer-songwriter and performer, the interview focused more around Shelton’s other ventures, including his judging gig on The Voice, his new movie, ‘Ugly Dolls,’ and of course his relationship with long-time girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. Ellen and Shelton had a witty, friendly, and humorous banter going throughout the entire segment.
The entertainer shared with Ellen about his new role as the voice of a character in the animated children’s film ‘Ugly Dolls,’ as well as how he brought Stefani and her children to the premiere. Both had a laugh when Shelton shared that he only has “one voice,” as it was easy to recognize it in the clip of the new movie that was shown. When it came to The Voice, Shelton boasted about his stacked team, shouting out one of the contestants, who he shares is a “rapper and singer.”
Of course, the interview wouldn’t be complete without Ellen boldly encouraging the performer to propose to his girlfriend. She gifted him with a clock, adding that he should give it to Stefani, and maybe she’ll propose to him! To cap off the segment, the pair played a game, inspired by Shelton’s new film, which showed off the lighthearted and fun nature of their working relationship and friendship.
Make sure to check out Shelton’s new movie, ‘Ugly Dolls,’ in theaters this Friday, May 3rd, and don’t forget to watch Season 16 of The Voice, Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC. As far as music goes, keep an eye out for more new music, following the release of “God’s Country”, most likely coming soon.
