I have to say, I think Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are my favorite new Hollywood couple. I actually don’t know much of anything about either of them individually or about their relationship, but I love the fact that these two polar opposites came together, thanks to The Voice (did Carson Daly set them up?!) and found love… or a rebound, whatever. And Gwen is feeling her country boy so much that she wrote (or at least sang) a song about him already. It’s called “Make Me Like You”, and boy, is it a treat and a half.
If you can’t/won’t listen to the embed below, here are some choice lyrics (s/o to US Weekly for transcribing):
“I was fine before I met you / I was broken but fine / I was lost and uncertain / But my heart was still mine / I was free before I met you / I was broken but free / All alone in the clear view / But now you are all I see / Hey, wait a minute / No, you can’t do this to me / Hey, wait a minute / No, that’s not fair / Hey, wait a minute / You’re running back to me / I really like you, but I’m so scared / Why’d you have to go and make me like you? / Yeah, this is a feeling I’m not used to / Why’d you have to go and make me like you? / I’m so mad at you, ’cause now you got me missing you.”
D’awwww. Ain’t that sweet? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, too. I probably give these two another three or four months together before they call it quits (hopefully Gwen isn’t doing season after season of The Voice, or that could get awkward!), but for now, I’m basking in the joy of these two.
Listen to “Make Me Like You” below and reminisce on how good Gwen used to be when she was in No Doubt and how this woman seemingly never ages:
