Blake Shelton Calls Gwen Stefani’s Bigger Fame a “Crashing Blow” to His Ego
The country crooner recently opened up about his girlfriend's massive fame and how it's a "crashing blow" to his ego.
The "Honey Bee" hitmaker revealed that his sweetheart's fame wasn't a problem at the beginning, but as time went on, he started to feel more and more inferior.
"Oh my God, at some point, it kinda builds your ego up when you walk into a room with Gwen," he said.
"It's also a crashing blow to your ego when you realize all the cheers and people shouting at you. You realize it's not you, it's her!"
Probably realizing how negative he sounded, the "Sangria" singer quickly clarified that he's got mad respect for his special woman, regardless of how many more fans she has than him.
"But it's still exciting at the same time. Being in the vicinity of her is unbelievable," he said.
As for if this tension will play out on screen, fans of The Voice will just have to tune in.
However, Blake did tease that former coach Alicia Keys, who will be replaced by fresh blood Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson, will come back in a future season.
"This is like those Harry Potter movies. Those characters that you think are gone, then they come back," he said.
"Alicia, I've already looked ahead on the script, and they have her coming back."
As for the other judges, the country singer isn't a huge fan of Kelly nor Miley Cyrus who he deemed as far too chatty.
"I can tell you that I used to think Miley Cyrus would be the person that talks the most, ever in the history of this show," he said.
"Now that they brought in Kelly Clarkson. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Thank God they are at least on different seasons because my ears would fall off my head. There would be no oxygen left in the room. Neither one of them can stop talking."

The Voice airs tonight, May 23, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
