What Almost Cost Blake His Job?
Blake Shelton has been in the news a lot lately. So has his wife, Miranda Lambert. Not surprising since the two have been country music’s “power couple” for a while now. Good and bad sometimes go with the territory.
Blake is not afraid to put himself out there. His Twitter posts are nothing short of funny and sometimes downright outrageous.
He can be known for stealing the spotlight on The Voice with his quick, spontaneous one-liners.
When it comes right down to it, the two things he is the most serious about is his wife and country music. Although he feels like he sometimes has a target on his back, he defends his priorities. He also thinks people question and wonder whether or not his heart is in Hollywood.
Blake admits he’d rather lose his job than disappoint his bride.
“There was one day the (“Voice”) producers told me, ‘You have to be here on this day in New York City.’ And I said, ‘I guess y’all are going to have to fire me, because it’s my first year anniversary. I have to be with Miranda. Y’all don’t want this on your conscience either!’ Then a high-ranked person said, ‘He’s right, let him go. He needs to be with his wife.’ I don’t want to mess up the schedule, but that was important.”
