Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are going strong, but of course some people have expressed doubts about their relationship when it started. It turns out that Miranda Lambert’s best friend, Ashley Monroe, is admitting that she thinks Gwen is pretty great.
It had to be hard for Ashley to speak out, but she didn’t seem to mind. ET was able to catch up with Ashley, and she shared her thoughts on Gwen Stefani. Ashley is also close with Blake Shelton, and it looks like these two didn’t make her pick one over the other during their divorce. Blake has moved on just fine with Gwen Stefani, and Miranda Lambert is now dating R&B singer Anderson East. Blake did reveal that he had a new girlfriend before Miranda shared about Anderson, but both seem very happy.
At this time, Ashley said she didn’t know if Blake would be at the Grammy’s with Gwen Stefani, but she had good things to say about Gwen. Ashley revealed her thoughts.
“I don’t know if Blake’s going to be here tonight, but if I see Gwen I’m gonna high-five her, because she’s awesome. I met her when I sang with Blake at The Voice a long time ago, and I’ll never forget, she said my voice was ‘dope! And I was like, ‘Yeah! That’s awesome.'”
After that, Ashley Monroe went on to talk about how she was wishing the best to Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. It sounds like Ashley thinks they are a great match. Now that Miranda and Blake have both found love, it is great to see their friend supporting them. Ashley shared more about Gwen and Blake.
“I think that any time you feel that in your heart, then you’re a good match, you know. You can find someone just like you and it not work. Find someone opposite and it does, and I like that about love.”
Billboard shared that tonight at the Grammys, Gwen Stefani shared her new song Make Me Like You. Gwen actually shared the music video for the first time on the show. This new video was directed by Sophie Muller of Jesse Dylan’s Wondros Collective. This song is very obviously inspired by Gwen’s relationship with Blake Shelton. She even gave Blake a nod in the video, naming a bar locale in her video “Blake’s.” Gwen is also seen looking at a tabloid that joked she was carrying an alien baby in her stomach. This is just the second song from Gwen Stefani’s new album, which focuses on her hard time during her divorce.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton met while on The Voice, and they both got a divorce around the same time. This couple may seem like an unlikely pair, but somehow they are making it work and seem like the perfect couple. Gwen Stefani is even turning a bit country and hanging out with Blake in Oklahoma a lot lately. Many didn’t think they were a great match at the start, but so far, Blake and Gwen are proving them wrong.
