Blake Shelton talks heartache and starting over after “hell” year in new issue of Billboard (out today).
Blake Shelton has been pretty open about the hell and heartache that he went through during and after his divorce from Miranda Lambert, but what he hasn’t talked about much is just how he feels about Donald Trump.
The singer is on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard Magazine and in the accompanying interview, he tells the magazine about his heartache after his divorce (“I was at rock bottom, in the middle of hell.”), about telling Gwen Stefani about his divorce (“I thought, ‘Wow, she feels super bad for me!’ “), and how his now girlfriend saved his life (“Gwen saved my life. Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorces.”).
All standard stuff Blake’s already said previously, but then he moves on to his feelings about Trump.
“I’m not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don’t like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who’s crazy here?”
So there you go, an interview full of heartache, love, hope, and Donald Trump.
