Kelly Clarkson was recently asked to share her honest opinions of the coaches on the current season of The Voice, and she didn’t hold back. She’ll be joining Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, and Blake Shelton on The Voice Season 14 coaching panel next year, and she can only hope that one of her future coworkers doesn’t hold what she said about his political skills against her when they start competing against each other.
During an interview with TV Insider, Kelly Clarkson weighed in on what she thinks the current Voice coaches would be good at outside of singing. One of the questions she was asked was which coach would be the best politician, and Blake Shelton probably won’t like her response. According to Clarkson, she thinks the “I’ll Name the Dogs” singer’s longtime frenemy, Adam Levine, would do a much better job of getting the public to vote for him. When it comes to Shelton, she’s not entirely sure that his run for political office would last long enough for his name to end up on a ballot.
“I’m picking this person because he’s a people pleaser. I think that politicians kind of have to play that role and shadow box, too,” Clarkson said. “So I’m going to say Adam.”
“I think Blake would get fired,” she added with a laugh.
However, it’s not all bad news for Blake Shelton. Kelly Clarkson said he’s the coach on The Voice that she’d most like to party with, mostly because she’s had a great time partying with him already. She also said that he’s the coach she’d choose to cook dinner for her because he makes amazing ribs. So if Blake ever does decide to run for political office, it looks like Kelly has found one surefire way he can sway some voters: by appealing to their stomachs.
Blake would not be who Kelly would choose to take care of her kids. That honor goes to Jennifer Hudson, the coach Kelly thinks would be most likely to lay down the law. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Blake said that he recently taught Gwen Stefani’s sons about the joys of creating fire, so he might not be the best babysitter choice for parents who want to keep their kids away from matches.
“I’m going to say Jennifer. I think she’s a take-no-prisoners kind of woman, and that’s what I want around my children,” Kelly said of why she’d ask her fellow former American Idol star to babysit.
Kelly Clarkson was also asked to name which current coach she’d most like to perform a duet with. She commended Adam Levine for singing “his tail off” when they were touring together, but her top pick was Miley Cyrus. The fact that Kelly didn’t pick Blake may come as no surprise to fans who have heard what she’s said about performing with her fellow country singer.
During his recent speech at Variety‘s Power of Women event, Blake Shelton said that Kelly Clarkson never seemed very impressed with his performance whenever he joined her onstage to sing Jason Aldean’s half of the duet, “Don’t You Wanna Stay.” According to Blake, Kelly got so frustrated with his lack of passion during one of their performances that she later told him to “sing it like we’re f***ing.” Moments like this are why some fans of The Voice can’t wait to see Blake and Kelly together on the show.
