Blake Shelton Talks Miranda Lambert, Says CMAs Will Be 'Awkward' (Video)
Blake Shelton steps out in New York City while doing promo work for The Voice on Wednesday (October 28).
The 39-year-old entertainer appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers the evening before and talked about his divorce from Miranda Lambert.
“This year is going to be awkward at the CMAs, speaking of jokes,” Blake said of the upcoming country music awards show. “[Country music] is such a family. Everybody there is friends, you know? There’s gotta be a joke about me and Miranda. [Co-host] Brad Paisley is not doing his job if he doesn’t look down there and go, ‘Haha!’ I mean, he’s gotta do it.”
“You have to address the elephant in the room,” Blake added. “We’ve had the conversations, like, ‘Okay, dude, I will go sit there and let you kick me in the face a few times. I know it’s coming, you know.”
FYI: Blake is wearing a John Varvatos jacket.
