Just two days after the news of his very public divorce from Miranda Lambert hit the media, Blake Shelton sat down with Entertainment Tonight to discuss the upcoming season of The Voice, and made a few sly remarks, lending themselves to the divorce drama. Brad Paisley also joined Shelton for the interview, appearing as a mentor on Team Blake.
As always, Shelton was his joking self throughout the interview. Making remarks about Paisley stealing his job.
“This guy’s really good at this. I think he’s gonna take my job,” Blake said, noting that Paisley would probably need to take up a stronger drinking habit. “I need to be a little less professional, maybe,” Paisley agreed.
Referring to the gossip surrounding his new divorce, Shelton said:
“I thought I’d go ahead and get started,” he said, holding a cup what he claimed to be vodka. “It’s one of those weeks.”
