Gwen Stefani Confesses ‘Make Me Like You’ Is About Blake Shelton
Gwen Stefani stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday to talk about her new single “Make Me Like You,” and when confronted with the question of whether or not it was about beau Blake Shelton, she shared the truth.
The accompanying music video for the song — shot live in a four-minute commercial break during the Grammy Awards — fans noticed a neon sign hanging above the bar reading “Blake's." Stefani played it cool for awhile, but Kimmel asked her straight, and she gave a straight answer.
"Yes, I will admit that the song is about that guy,” Stefani said.
The singer also dished during the interview that the fall she appeared to take while on roller skates in the video was actually rehearsed. "Everybody thinks that was me, but there was a stunt double," she told Kimmel. "We did that on purpose so people would go, 'Oh, my God! It's live and she fell.'"
Stefani and Shelton did not attend the actual Grammy Awards — likely due to the filming of the video — but they were spotted getting close at a pre-Grammys gala on Valentine’s Day honoring industry exec Irving Azoff. It’s clear the two are happy together and not afraid to show it. Shelton even got his wish to have Stefani return as an advisor on the upcoming 10th season of The Voice, in which her coach’s chair from Season 9 will be passed back to Christina Aguilera.
“We know we collaborate well together as coaches, so of course I would have her as my mentor, and she’s so smart and talented!” Shelton tells People.
The couple met on the show and started dating last fall after Shelton’s split from Miranda Lambert. Watch Stefani’s full interview with Kimmel above.
