Blake Shelton gives Brad Paisley permission to make fun of his divorce

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are both scheduled to appear and perform at next month’s CMA Awards. Cue the very real possibility of some awkward moments for the exes. CMA Awards host Brad Paisley, however, can breathe a sigh of relief because Blake Shelton has given him permission to use the awkwardness to his advantage.

Blake sat down for an interview with Late Night host Seth Meyers and discussed the fact that he knows he’s probably going to be the butt of a joke or two at the CMA Awards and he’s okay with it.

“This year’s gonna be awkward at the CMAs, speaking of jokes,” Shelton told Meyers. “Because we are, it’s such a family. Everybody there is friends. There’s gotta be one about me and Miranda. [Host] Brad Paisley is not doing his job if he doesn’t look down there and go ‘Ha ha!’ You have to address the elephant in the room. We’ve had the conversations like, ‘Okay, dude. I’ll sit there and let you kick me in the face a few times.’ I know it’s coming.”

The CMA Awards air Wednesday, November 4, on ABC.

Oh, and on a side note, in the interview Blake disputed his CMA Award win number. According to Wikipedia, yep, he’s won 9 of the suckers.

    Don’t agree w/ him. Divorce isn’t something to be joked about. Weddings, engagements, babies is one thing that is happy news-break ups are sad and bring the room down. Not a fun way to be at an awards show. Carrie already said that she would put her foot down on jokes about Blake and Miranda and Reba’s divorces b/c they are friends and not fun to make jokes that could hurt. Example-You have cancer…hilarious right? Reba & Miranda haven’t really addressed it at all so just b/c Blake says it is ok doesn’t mean anything. So many other things to talk about anyway.


    Blake Shelton does and says what gets him the most attention. He hopes Brad says something, if he does, that means the cameras goes to him. He is good at promoting himself. I do think music city loves Miranda and will do nothing at the CMA Awards to embarrass her. I truely believe marriage meant no more to Blake than the divorce goes. Its all about show. We have all seened what a flirt he was. You’d never know he had a wife, had he not got more attention by mentioning her. The reason he mentioned her was because she was a beautiful girl in Country Music. Miranda has had many prayers sent above….Thank you Lord for listening and giving her life back!!!
