The Voice judge and country music icon, Blake Shelton, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and he had a lot to talk about! Shelton sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about his time as People Magazine’s 2017 Sexiest Man Alive. “I feel like sexy ends when… I’m not Sexiest Man Alive any more” he laughed. DeGeneres also questioned how it has affected his relationship with girlfriend Gwen Stefani. “It’s supposed to be like a superpower or whatever, you know what I’m saying? I don’t think she felt the power,” Shelton jokes.
Shelton also dished that Stefani was to blame for his Halloween costume debacle. The duo planned to dress up for a Halloween birthday party, and Stefani had bought Shelton a costume from the Disney movie, Incredibles. The joke was on him when he ended up wearing a sailor costume and another guest had mistaken him as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.
“So it’s the birthday party and Gwen had gotten me an Incredibles costume, the dad. And I put it on and it literally — this was here in L.A. — it was like putting on a thick coat because it had muscles and I don’t have real muscles… So I didn’t like that, it was too hot,” Shelton says. “So she said, ‘There’s a sailor costume you can put on. Just put that on. I don’t care.'” He continued…”So I put that on and I swear to God, Ellen, I swear, I walk into the party and the very first person walked up to me and asked me if I was the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man,” Shelton continues. “I swear! And they’re right. They’re exactly right!”
The two also talked about Shelton’s vodka brand Smithworks, which they both took a shot of right in the middle of their interview. After they drank together, they talked about his unfortunate fall on stage. Watch the clip here.
At the end of their chat, Shelton revealed details about his upcoming “Friends & Heroes Tour”. The tour will begin in February 2019. Lauren Alaina, the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, and Trace Adkins are acting as direct support for the tour. Although the tour isn’t hitting New York City, Shelton will be in Uncasville, CT at Mohegan Sun Arena on March 21st and 22nd. You can also catch him on The Voice every Monday and Tuesday night.
