Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have outlasted the most generous predictions of how long they’d be together. At the very least, I figured they’d hit the ceiling for maximum in-love levels and need a break from each other, but here we are more than two years later. And Gwen is still beaming at Blake like he’s the inventor of hair-safe peroxide.
Yesterday Gwen promoted her Christmas album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, by appearing in a Facebook live video with Giada De Laurentiis for Williams-Sonoma. While making an apple pie, Gwen admits something that probably made Giada think, “Jesus, that’s cornier than my poh-LEN-taaahhhhh.” According to Gwen, not only do she and Blake sing in the kitchen, but they sing-talk all the time.
“We’re like we’re in a musical constantly and we just sing. We actually don’t talk to each other, we just sing like a musical and everything we sing is like ‘I love you,’ like it’s pretty much the whole time like how great we are.”
I know Gwen is half-joking here (I want to believe she’s 100% joking, but I’m not so sure). But I’m on board with singing instead of talking. Although there’s no love so unconditional that it could tolerate my tone-deaf singing. So maybe I’m just here for someone singing at me all the time. I’d appreciate a little melody while getting yelled at about taking care of the mountain of empty club soda cans next to my bed.
