Gwen Stefani makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday to talk about her new Christmas album but finds herself being grilled about her boyfriend, Blake Shelton.
DeGeneres wastes no time getting down to the nitty-gritty when she asks the three-time Grammy Award winner if her country star boyfriend became better in bed after earning People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive title.
“Oh my god!” Stefani exclaims, getting herself tongue-tied out of embarrassment. “Next question.”
The No Doubt frontwoman does reveal that she finds Shelton sexier now that his reign as Sexiest Man Alive has come to an end. The 42-year-old country singer’s sexiest man title was recently usurped by British actor Idris Elba.
Stefani also denies that she and Shelton are engaged, despite DeGeneres’ efforts to find out. “Blake told me ya’ll are engaged now,” the host says, leading to big cheers from the studio audience.
“What are you talking about?” Stefani asks through tears of laughter. “We’re not engaged and we’re not married. And he’s my boyfriend… still.”
She adds: “Every time I come on here I think it’s gonna be like, ‘I got this,’ you know? — I don’t.”
Something the happy couple did do together was record a music video for their holiday duet, “You Make It Feel like Christmas”, which Stefani says was a crazy accomplishment because Shelton “hates doing music videos.”
Elsewhere on the show, Stefani gets emotional when DeGeneres heaps praise on her for her strength and success, and she performs “Cheer for The Elves” off her new holiday album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas – Deluxe Album.
