Blake Shelton takes a playful dig at Luke Bryan for his offer to officiate his wedding with Gwen Stefani
Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan love to take subtle but playful digs at each other all the time, and now Shelton has burned the musical star over his offer to officiate his and his girlfriend Gwen Stefani's wedding.
In an interview with ET, Bryan had joked that he would love to see Shelton and Stefani tie the knot as soon as possible, and even offered to marry them off on his own. "I'll do the sermon. The sermon? The service?" Bryan said.
"If Blake were smart, he would marry her before she goes to an optometrist," the singer hilariously added. "Every time I meet Gwen, she's holding her phone way out here. I'm like, 'That's it, she can't see!'"
However, Shelton responded to Bryan's offer with a burn of his own. He told ET in a recent interview, “Luke's not even a legitimate country artist, much less like somebody that can marry people, you know what I'm saying,” while promoting the season four premiere of The Voice.
The playful jibe came after Shelton and his fellow coach, Kelly Clarkson were debating whether a wedding officiated by Bryan or Shelton was “real.”
“If you want [the wedding] to be real, maybe you should get, like, a real [officiant,]” Clarkson said. “Because we thought about Blake doing my husband and I [but] I [wanted] it to be real.”
And it seems that even Bryan does not disagree with either Clarkson or Shelton's decision. After he found out about Shelton's response to his offer of officiating his marriage, Bryan laughed and said, "You know what, of all the smart -- that may be the smartest thing he's ever done."
So now we can be sure that the two musicians have no bad blood between them, and that their camaraderie is strong enough for them to pass jokes on each other every now and then.
