Have you heard the news? Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are getting hitched! No, you have not bonked your head and been in a coma for the past 5 years. The year is indeed 2021 and these two still haven’t pulled the trigger. But they do continue to talk about it every time The Voice sees a drop in ratings. This time the tease is that it’s going to be a classy affair because Blake’s letting the little lady handle all the details.
Blake and Gwen have been together since 2015 after Gwen joined The Voice the previous year when they were both married to other people — Blake to Miranda Lambert and Gwen to Gavin Rossdale. They’d both divorced their spouses by 2016 (Gwen even had her marriage annulled so they’d be right with the lord, if not Miranda) and we’ve heard rumblings about their pending nuptials ever since. But it wasn’t official official until October of last year. And according to Blake, Gwen has thrown herself into wedding planning like a pig into a puddle-a mud on a hot summer’s day or some such countrified analogy. People reports:
In a recent interview with USA Today, the 44-year-old country singer opened up about his upcoming nuptials to Gwen Stefani and explained why he was leaving the wedding planning to his fiancée.
“If I was picking our meal, it would just literally be everything fried,” he joked to the outlet. “French fries, chicken tenders, you know, all of that stuff. I think [Gwen] knows that it would be a pretty classless wedding if I was in control.”
“I want her to do all of that stuff and handle it because it’s going to be great,” Shelton continued. “She’s in the middle of planning the thing, and she’s always so mindful … of me.”
“She’s like, ‘Hey, I don’t want to just take this thing over.’ I think she’s having a blast doing it,” he added. “I mean, I know she’s having a blast doing it.”
I think he got a little tripped up there because his reading glasses were smudged. The note from his publicist clearly said “Gwen IS having a blast *single finger gun – point to camera – wink if you can, use your good eye*.” Here’s Gwen, the very picture of class, promoting tonight’s The Voice finale.

Now, does this look like the kind of woman who is going to be serving chicken fingers at her wedding?! I think the fuck not. She’s serving lemon pepper wings.
