Gwen Stefani recently decided it was time to pay tribute to what Blake Shelton means to her. Rather than dish on their romance, Gwen chose to honor her new boyfriend’s talents by dubbing Shelton the “Michael Jackson Of Country Music,” reported Entertainment Tonight.
Proud that Blake won one of CMT’s Artists Of the Year awards, Stefani went to Instagram to share her feelings.
“Congrats @blakeshelton…#cmtartistoftheyear #michaeljacksonofcountrymusic,” wrote Gwen.
When Shelton accepted his award, he seemed to be reflecting on how Stefani transformed 2015 from a year in which he struggled through his divorce to Miranda Lambert into a year when he celebrated a new girlfriend.
Shelton previously expressed his fondness for Gwen.
“I’m thankful for Gwen for tons of reasons,” he admitted to ET.
Since breaking up with Blake in July, Miranda has gradually been recovering, and now she’s pouring her heart into her new album. She’s reportedly having a hard time getting over Shelton.
“I had a great relationship with an amazing man, so I know what good is,” Lambert said in terms of moving on with a new romance.
Recovering from Shelton isn’t easy, added Miranda. The process may take time and some depressed moments.
“Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, ‘Man, this sucks right now,'” confessed Blake’s ex-wife.
And it likely doesn’t help Miranda Lambert recover with rumors swirling that Gwen Stefani is already pregnant with Blake as the baby’s daddy, reported Franchise Herald.
Shelton shot down the reports that his girlfriend is pregnant.
“Ha!!! You too!!! Damn I’m fertile!!” joked Blake on social media.
But, for Miranda, it’s no joking matter. She’s allegedly angry that Shelton segued to Stefani so quickly
Although Miranda is dating, she has not yet met anyone like Blake who would persuade her to try again at marriage.
“She can’t wait to one day have children if it’s meant to be and have a husband again,” the insider told E! News. “She has not given up on love.”
However, it’s not just Lambert who is taking time to reflect on past relationships. Stefani also is ruing the heartbreak she experienced in her divorce from Gavin Rossdale, reported the Express.
Confiding in radio DJ Elvis Duran in an interview, Gwen shared the details of her divorce nightmare.
“I got a divorce, which was completely not in the plan at all. I don’t know. For me, it surely wasn’t. A shock. A horrible, crazy year and explosion in my life,” said Stefani.
The heartbreak began when Gwen learned Gavin had been cheating on her with Mindy Mann, the family nanny. Determined to turn her tragedy into creativity, Stefani resolved to write about it.
“At that time, I wanted to go in and write. I just wanted to be in my bed crying and do what you do when life falls apart,” admitted Gwen. “I went to the studio, and I was convinced that I had to make something out of this.”
