Shifting gears, how do you feel about Gwen Stefani joining “The Voice”?
Blake Shelton – I love her. I’ve never met her, but clearly I’m a fan. You can’t help but respect what she’s done as a hard-working individual; the success of her band, her success as a solo act, and all the other — the fashion stuff, that I know nothing about but I know it’s a big deal because I hear about it from my wife all the time! I’m anxious to be around anybody like that, I think. I admire her work ethic and think she’ll be good for the show. I feel sorry for her, because she’s going to lose— to me —but I’ll be nice about it.
“Adam Levine – I’ve been a fan of Gwen’s and Pharrell’s for so long — they’re both such inspirational people,” Levine told EW. “They’re incredible, and it’s such a score to be able to get them on this show.”
