There’s nothing like some sweet competition between a boyfriend and girlfriend. Gwen Stefani, who’s currently’s a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice, revealed that she and her beau, Blake Shelton, have “similar tastes in voices.” This means they could possibly fight over contestants, making for some good TV moments.
“I think me and Blake hear a lot of the same kind of stuff and have the same kind of taste in voices,” the 49-year-old told Entertainment Tonight during an interview published on Thursday, September 19. “But I also think, John [Legend] and I do. But Kelly [Clarkson] and I don’t.”
It’s definitely going to be an interesting season on the singing competition, which premieres on September 23. Evidently, winning is the main focus, regardless of personal relationships — at least according to Blake. “I don’t really give a crap what John says or does,” he said. “I’m here to beat him. Here to beat [Kelly] and I’m even here to beat Gwen.”
Whatever the outcome is, though, it’s safe to say all the coaches are already winners in their own way. They each have so much going on outside of The Voice — especially Gwen, who’s juggling being a mentor, her Vegas residency and being a full-time mom. “I didn’t expect to be doing [the Vegas show] and The Voice at the same time,” she confessed. “I just feel like I’m alive in a way I’ve never been before, because I have to be! Because doing both is a lot.”
As for her kids? It helps that they’re busy with school. “I got a baby in kindergarten now and that was devastating. But he’s so excited and he’s doing so well. I got junior high … God gave me all three boys,” she added. “I’ve always been surrounded by boys.”
When it comes to her relationship with Blake, things couldn’t be any better. Aside from working together, they regularly go on dates. According to a source who exclusively spoke to Life & Style in April, Blake and Gwen “are in a great place and act like loved-up teenagers.” The insider added that “their nights out together really help keep the relationship alive.” Can we say relationship goals?!
