"Yes I had been drinking. A lot...": Notorious hellraiser Blake Shelton takes a tumble on-stage; blames the booze, and, er, Pitbull
Blake Shelton sure does know how to make people laugh and his humor seems to be on point as he cracks the perfect joke at the right time
Blake Shelton knows how to handle situations perfectly. The singer was performing at his concert at Pendleton, Oregon when he suddenly lost his balance on the steps and fell down. Unlike other celebrities who would just let things go, the singer decided to enjoy the moment by cracking a joke on the same.
Blake was quick to find the video on Twitter and shared it by admitting that he might have been a bit under the influence. “Ok, Pendleton I know somebody is bound to have a video of me falling on stage last night!! Please!! I have to see it!!! Post that sh*t! And yes I had been drinking. A lot..." he wrote on Twitter. He then added that Pitbull might have something to do with his little situation.
"By the way @pitbull...I blame you. It was my attempt at competing with your show... I am a dancing son of a b**ch when I don’t take a 10-second giant shit fall..." he added. At the same time, Balke had a crisp answer for a user who did not understand that Blake had been joking all along.
A furious user who took Blake for his words wrote, "So, that's the type of quality show that you put on,...for people that spend their hard earned money to come to see you, is for you to show up drunk? That's some Justin Bieber on Hennessy, throwing up on stage, nonsense right there!"
To this Blake replied, "Oh I’m sorry ma’am... This account is meant for people who actually have a sense of humor... We’re not accepting cry baby tweets today... Maybe try again tomorrow!" This is not the first time that Blake has displayed his witty sense of humor. Recently, Blake hinted that he is Gwen Stefani's number one fan and referred to himself as a stalker.
The country singer took to his Twitter to let the world know how dedicated he is about being there for his girlfriend. “So far @gwenstefani has performed 3 shows in Las Vegas. I have been to 3…” he wrote, adding the hashtag #stalker. Blake had been by Gwen's side ever since she kicked off her Vegas concert on June 27. The two looked head over heels in love with each other as they walked the red carpet together. Gwen also shared some behind the curtain moments on her Instagram where she was seen placing a kiss on Blake. During the concert, Gwen also sang 'Make Me Like You' which she confessed previously that the song was about Blake.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live she said, “I see a lot of admiring eyes on my sparkles. I know, it’s ridiculous. You don’t know what it’s like to wear a cowgirl costume right in front of Blake Shelton. It’s like my fantasy come true.” Blake has also opened up about how Gwen has helped him get through his divorce from Miranda Lambert. Appearing on NBC's Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist, he opened up about his romance with Gwen.
"When I was going through my divorce, and just, hit rock bottom just like anybody does when they go through something that devastating, it's a miracle that I met somebody that was going through the same exact thing that I was at the exact same moment in time," he said in the interview. "I think if Gwen and I were being honest right now talking about this, I think in the back of our minds we both kind of thought this is a rebound deal. I mean, because we're both coming out of a pretty low spot in our lives and we're kind of clinging to each other to get through this."
