Blake Shelton’s Mom Speaks Out…Oh My.
Mom knows best…right? You might want to run that by Blake Shelton. His mother recently sat down with Men’s Journal for a revealing interview about the country singer.
So, what would Mrs. Shelton say about her son’s drinking?
He likes to make people think he’s drunk, but I’ve never seen that boy drunk in my life.”
If you are one of the over 3.6 million of Blake’s followers on Twitter, you’d see a few colorful Tweet’s such as:
- I just downloaded
@DBradbery “Heart Of Dixie” on iTunes… It’s so freaking good I can’t even… it’s just… I need a drink!!!
- I’m drinking. Right now.
- Is it early enough for a drink yet?…
- Ok that’s it. I have to be honest with y’all!!! I have been drinking today.
- There’s an outside possibility that I’m a little hungover this morning… Teamblake problems.”
Rock on, Blake.
Plus, according to the recent interview by Men’s Journal, on his left forearm there’s a tattoo that he designed himself, one night when he was in no condition to be designing tattoos – they were supposed to be deer tracks, but everyone kept mistaking them for ladybugs, so he added some barbed wire to make it more manly.
Maybe mom doesn’t know about that. We’ll keep that a secret.
Shelton’s not as big of a drinker as he’d like us to think when he tweets about how drunk he is.” CMT music news
Mrs. Shelton goes on to say that her son would have made a great forest ranger with his love for the outdoors and animals. In fact, in jr. high Blake had 2 pet raccoons and his mom would have to drag him in the house at night. He was apparently soft-hearted when it came to insects, too.
One time I had a flyswatter and I killed a fly, and he cried.” – Mrs. Shelton
In fact, he brought home so many frogs that his mom started calling him “Toad.” And, sometimes she still does.
The fact is, Blake’s music resonates with his audience. He’s open, honest, and all around fun to watch on NBC’s The Voice.
Thanks, Mrs. Shelton, for the insight on his childhood. Thanksgiving dinner just became a little more interesting.
