Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton enjoy spending time together so much that they’ve started hanging out together at work. Blake was with Gwen during rehearsals for what might be a surprise Radio Disney Music Awards performance, and he became the subject of one of his girlfriend’s Snapchat photos. Unfortunately for Blake, Gwen decided to snap a picture of a body part he isn’t so fond of: his left forearm.
As Just Jared reports, Gwen Stefani will be presented with the 2016 RDMA Hero Award tonight during the Radio Disney Music Awards. The “Misery” singer will be recognized for being a positive role model for her fans and inspiring them to do good deeds. Even though Stefani is taking her award home tonight, fans won’t get to see her acceptance speech until Saturday night when the Radio Music Awards airs at 7 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel.
Gwen isn’t on the lengthy list of RDMA performers, but her stylist, Mariel Haenn, recently shared a Snapchat message asking fans to check out Gwen’s performance tomorrow night. Perhaps Gwen plans to surprise the audience by singing one of the songs from her new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
On Friday, Gwen Stefani shared a Snapchat photo that was taken during rehearsals for an upcoming event. Gwen’s backup dancers are wearing roller skates in the picture, and their tricky footwear could be a hint that they’re preparing for a live RDMA performance of “Make Me Like You.” As Popcrush points out, Stefani rocks roller skates in the live music video for the upbeat love song. The ambitious “Make Me Like You” video aired during the Grammy Awards, and many viewers thought that a roller skate-clad Gwen accidentally fell down while flying down a red and black hallway. However, it was actually a stunt double that took the much-talked-about tumble, and it was planned.
“We did that on purpose so people would go, ‘Oh, my God! It’s live and she fell!'” Gwen told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on his late night talk show.
Gwen Stefani isn’t rehearsing with the roller skaters in the Snapchat photo below, so perhaps she’s not planning on wearing skates during her Radio Music Awards performance.
Gwen has admitted that “Make Me Like You” is about Blake Shelton, so it should come as no surprise to “Shefani” fans that she invited her cowboy beau to watch her rehearse the song for tonight’s show. However, Blake probably wasn’t thrilled when Gwen decided to make her boyfriends’s presence known by sharing a Snapchat photo of a bit of body ink that he despises.
Blake Shelton’s infamous barbed-wire-and-deer-tracks tattoo can be seen in the picture below, which was taken the same day as the roller skate rehearsal photo. It looks like Shelton is sitting in the rehearsal studio with Stefani.
According to the Boot, Blake Shelton regrets his tattoo because so many of his fans get confused by his interpretation of deer tracks. Blake designed the tiny buck footprints himself, and they’re supposed to pay tribute to his love of hunting. However, many admirers of the ink think that the “Came Here to Forget” singer has a soft spot for a certain adorable beetle.
“To this moment, people still come up to me and say, ‘Man, ladybugs … that’s cool. What does that mean to you?’ I probably have the crappiest tattoo — not only in country music — but maybe the world,” Blake said during an interview with Great American Country.
Blake says that he later added the barbed wire border to make his tattoo look “more manly.”
It’s a shame Shelton didn’t meet Stefani years ago because she likely would have talked him out of getting the terrible tattoo. As USA Today reports, the “Naughty” singer has explained why she’ll never get inked.
“I could never get a tattoo! I don’t want to commit to anything if I don’t know how it’s going to look in 10 years,” Gwen said during a 2007 interview with InStyle.
Blake Shelton must really love Gwen Stefani if he’s allowing her to photograph a part of his body that he dislikes so much. Do you think he’ll be in the Radio Disney Music Awards audience tonight to cheer his girlfriend on?
