Blake Shelton is one big flirt, alright! Despite being linked to fellow ‘Voice’ star Gwen Stefani, the country singer was seen flirting pretty hard with Rihanna during the show’s Nov. 2 episode. Luckily for Gwen, the flirting didn’t necessarily work out for him. Click here to watch!
Blake Shelton‘s, 39, flirting knows no bounds! The country singer has spent the better part this season on the The Voice flirting up a storm with his fellow judge and rumored ladylove, Gwen Stefani, 45. But all of that seemed to go out the door when Rihanna, 27, hit the set as a guest mentor during the show’s Knockout rounds. Blake couldn’t resist engaging in some pretty friendly back-and-forth banter with the “BBHMM” singer during the show’s Nov. 2 episode. Fortunately for Gwen, the pop star wasn’t buying Blake moves and even referred to him as “the ugly guy.” Watch it here!
Things started off innocently enough between Blake and Rihanna when they bantered over nicknames for each other at one point in the show. “I think you should reconsider my nickname for you, ‘Anna.’ Or do you like RiRi?” the country singer asked the Barbadian beauty during the Nov. 2 episode. “RiRi is not new!” she shot back. “You thought you were so brilliant!” Never without a slick remark, Blake replied, “I thought of that nickname years ago, because I’m a fan.” Hmm…is it just us, or does that sounds a lot like how things started between Gwen and Blake?
Things only seemed to get more flirtatious from there, as the two continued to praise a pretty female contestant on the country crooner’s team. As she walked away after advancing, Blake jokingly advised that “she should work on being cuter.” Rihanna wasn’t having any of that though, telling him, “says the ugly guy.” Burn! Sorry, Blake, but it looks like Riri isn’t buying your flirtatious game. Good thing there’s always Gwen!
While the two continue to deny any sort of a romanic relationship, Gwen did finally admit that Blake was “hot” in a Nov. 3 interview with Ryan Seacrest. After refusing to give up anything juicy in terms of their relationship status, the “Used To Love You” signer did reveal one possible tell-tale sign about where they stand: “But I think he’s hot, don’t you?” she questioned. Ummm….yes, we totally do, Gwen.
In addition to acting super flirty with one-another on The Voice, they were also spotted getting very handsy with one another while celebrating Halloween over the weekend. Seriously, what is the deal here?! It will certainly be interesting to see what happens when the show goes live Nov. 9. Rihanna might want to watch out — Gwen’s got her sights set!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Blake and Gwen are the real deal or what?
