The internet can be a ruthless place.
Gwen Stefani kicked off the segment by reading a tweet that read, “Gwen Stefani really is the worst thing to ever happen. Period. Full stop. #UghBarf.” After reading the tweet, Stefani, 49, simply said, “Owie.”
Next up were The Chainsmokers, who surprisingly found their mean tweet quite hilarious. “One of my employees was talking about how The Chainsmokers are actually pretty good and don’t deserve all the hate. So I fired him,” the message read.
Tyga also got a kick out of his critique by laughing after a Twitter user said, “TYGA PANTS TO TIGHT. #D***LESS.”
Later, a troll really went for the jugular by saying Pink “is aging pretty well for a big.” However, she wasn’t too offended by the insult because she simply responded by saying making a silly face and saying “Thank you.”
Miley Cyrus was also among those to be savagely targeted by online trolls. “Miley Cyrus is a smelly pirate hooker,” Cyrus, 25, read before flashing her middle finger.
Nickelback followed shortly after reading a tweet that said, “I would rather stab myself in the taint than hear another Nickelback song.”
The band’s frontman Chad Kroeger responded with, “That’s funny— that’s how we make Nickelback songs.”
In Halsey, G-Eazy, Imagine Dragons, Jason Mraz, Luke Bryan, Jason Derulo, Dua Lipa, The Strokes, Elvis Costello, Schoolboy Q and Luke Combs were also good sports and read the tweets about themselves.
It’s almost insane to me that a few months before announcing his run for president, Donald Trump was a reality TV host. Also, Donald Trump is president after everyone saw what a tool he is on national TV for a decade. A lot of people have theorized that Trump never planned on actually being President of the United States, and that his run for office was just a way to raise his profile and a precursor to a launch of his own network in the vein of Sarah Palin.
Michael Moore has his own theory on what prompted Donald Trump to run for office, and it’s as plausible as any other theory I’ve ever heard; Moore told The Hollywood Reporter that Trump was upset to learn Gwen Stefani was getting paid more for The Voice than he was for The Apprentice and so he wanted to show NBC how valuable he was.
Fahrenheit 11/9 is his attempt to fully understand the forces that fueled Trump’s rise. Moore, being a humorist at heart, can’t resist starting with a mordant joke or two. Yes, he acknowledges factors like Russian President Vladimir Putin and former FBI head James Comey, but asserts that the person most responsible for the Trump presidency is … Gwen Stefani. “You hadn’t heard that before, have you?” Moore asks, delighted with the audacity of the claim.
Moore posits that when Trump realized Stefani’s performance fees as a coach on The Voice were larger than his own on The Apprentice, he staged his now-infamous Trump Tower campaign announcement to prove his popularity to NBC, which aired both shows. Says Moore, “He’d been talking about running for president since 1988, but he didn’t really want to be president. There’s no penthouse in the White House. And he doesn’t want to live in a black city. He was trying to pit NBC against another network, but it just went off the rails.” After Trump’s accusation that Mexico was sending rapists across the border, NBC cut ties with him. But Trump, suddenly finding himself cheered on by massive crowds and an indulgent media, figured why not make a serious run for the highest office in the land?
With everything we know about Donald Trump, that’s exactly the sort of thing he’d do. And about the amount of thought he’d likely put into it.

Sometimes Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are so cute they make you want to vomit, you know?
But like, in a good way.
It's just so sweet how they found love after what seemed like such painful, dramatic divorces -- remember, Blake split with Miranda Lambert, Gwen dumped Gavin Rossdale, and they were together just a few months later.
Every single time we see a photo of the two of them or hear them talk about each other, or even when we just hear a random report about them, we can't help but smile.
Because of the cuteness.
And if you're the same way, then Blake's brand new music video will probably just destroy you.
Blake released the video for his song "I'll Name the Dogs" yesterday, and it's ... well, it's so precious it hurts.
Check it out, you'll see what we mean:
Did you watch it?! Are you done crying all the happy tears yet?!
Good, then let's start talking about how the song is almost definitely about Gwen!
Looking at the lyrics, it's clear that Blake is singing about a woman he wants to marry: "I'm talking about you and me with the same street name, same last name, same everything."
Throughout the song, he paints the most adorable picture of his ideal life together with this woman.
"Laying next to you every night sounds like a damn good life," he croons.
As for the title of the song, he suggests all the different roles the couple could take -- "You name the babies," he sings, "and I'll name the dogs."
So this is a song about his love for this woman, a love so deep that he wants to marry her and have children with her.
It's got to be about Gwen, right?!
If you still have your doubts, then just pair the lyrics with the video, which, by the way, features appearances by Gwen's actual children.
If that's not a sign, then what is?
But hey, you may still be doubtful, and that's fine.
To convince you -- or to push you over the edge, if you don't need convincing -- check out this report about Gwen's reaction to the music video!
A source tells Hollywood Life that "Gwen cried the first time she saw the finished video."
"The combination of the romantic lyrics that Blake sings just for her, seeing her boys on screen, and the surprise twist of it being an older couple getting married hit her right in the heart."
"It was so emotional for her in so many ways," the source adds.
Us too, us too!
The source claims that "She and Blake always talk about how they're going to grow old together, that was the inspiration behind the surprise twist of having the bride and groom be seniors."
"Between that and seeing her boys onscreen looking so grown up it was impossible for her not to cry."
"She's beyond proud of Blake and so honored that he sings such a beautiful song for her," the source says, "she feels like the luckiest woman in the world right now."
So, are they getting married now or ...
From what we keep hearing, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are in love.
So in love. So very, very in love. Probably the most love anyone’s ever been in, ever.
Theirs is a love story like any other: they met on a singing competition show, and when both of their marriages fell apart at the same time, they healed each other.
That’s been almost two years ago now, if you can believe it, and ever since then, they’ve been 100% adorable.
They’ve been adorable on The Voice, they’ve been adorable at each and every public appearance they’ve made, they’ve been adorable on social media.
They’ve especially been adorable on social media when any or all of Gwen’s three sons with Gavin Rossdale are also involved.
Which leads us to out point …
Isn’t it high time they had a baby already?!
A two-year relationship is more than enough time in Hollywood to make the commitment of having a child together, and it’s obvious Blake is fatherly with Gwen’s sons.
So what’s holding them back from having one of their own?
According to a source who spoke with Hollywood Life — nothing!
Absolutely nothing is holding them back from making a baby, and the source even says that “Adding to their family is in the game plan for Gwen and Blake.”
“Gwen loves being a mom,” the source explains, “and as much as she thought she was done having kids, that all changed when she met Blake.”
“She feels like Blake is her true soul mate and there’s nothing she’d love more than to have a baby with him.”
Having a baby would be a very big decision though, and not just for the obvious reasons.
As we’ve said, Gwen is already a mother of three, and she’s also got a very busy schedule. A baby would seriously throw them for a loop.
And besides, she’s 47 years old right now — a time when most women have an extremely difficult time conceiving, if they can even conceive at all.
But whatever happens, Blake “isn’t putting any pressure on her.”
However, “they’re trying” to get pregnant right now, because having a baby together “is something he wants just as much as she does.”
What a darling little story, right?
And it would be so sweet to see Gwen have such a happy ending after the mess that was the end of her marriage to Gavin.
Make it happen, universe!
Ever notice how regardless of what time of year it is, time of day, or wherever she is, Gwen Stefani is always looking ten out of ten. You will never see this blonde bombshell in the back of magazines under the “Look! They’re Just Like Us!” section because clearly, she is superhumanly gorgeous and nothing like the rest of us.
Since we first saw her famous white grin and platinum blonde hair emerge in the 90’s it seems like Gwen not only hasn’t aged but actually gets even more beautiful every year! A mother of 3 kids, and well into her 40’s sometimes we had to ask ourselves, just how does she do it? Look no further. Here is how Gwen always seems to look fab regardless of being 20 or 40.
Her Fashion Is Always Current
You can look in old magazines or the latest from last week. You will never see Gwen Stefani looking frumpy or outdated. She is always wearing clothes which are straight off the runway and yet effortlessly thrown together in a street chic way.
Gwen is known for taking edgy fashion and mixing it with a classic flair. She is so fashionable that she even decided to take it to the next level and start her own fashion label which has met great success over the years.
She Takes Fitness Seriously
Even after having a newborn Gwen was seen straight back on the treadmill again. Gwen knows that in order to keep those famous rock hard abs of hers the solution isn’t some big mystery. “There is no secret: you just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself!” Gwen says of how to keep up her physique.
She is known for incorporating intense cardio with strength training and isn’t afraid to work up a sweat. So the next time that you look at her in one of her famous crop tops and her abs glistening on the stage, remember that it certainly didn’t come for free!
She Is A Genuinely Happy Person
Happiness can make you more beautiful than makeup can. Smiling more not only radiates a certain energy which others can pick up on, but it makes you look younger and even feel younger!
Gwen is known for being positive, upbeat, and always kind to others. Even through her infamous divorce with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale of the band Bush, she was known for handling herself with grace and dignity.
Smile more, be more positive, and you will find that you are the most beautiful woman in the room regardless of any amount of makeup and hairspray. True beauty comes from within, and that is something that Gwen Stefani proves every day.
The knockout rounds of The Voice are nothing more than a cruel attempt by the producers to up the stakes for the competitors.
Watching the tears of joy from the hopefuls as they make it through the battle rounds is awesome. Unfortunately, all of that just seems pointless if there is the potential they could be knocked out an episode later.
Side note: Is it just us or does Adam Levine look bored as hell with the show? Maybe he should take a break from next season, or something.
The latest one-hour episode had three knockout rounds, but who made it through to the live shows? Did any coaches do some stealing?
Anatalia Villaranda and Dawson Coyle
Anatalia went with Carrie Underwood's "Two Black Cadillacs." It was a solid performance that was full of heart and proved she was still very deserving of her place in the competition.
Dawson went with "Demons" by Imagine Dragons, but it was one of the worst knockouts in the history of the series. His voice was all over the place.
Anatalia had this one in the bag, and it seemed the coaches knew that when Dawson screwed up as soon as he opened his mouth.
Winner: Anatalia Villaranda
Enid Oritz and TSoul
I think we can all collectively agree that singing Adele on singing competitions should be banned. Seriously, it's so dull, and nobody can match up to Adele, so leave her songs to her.
Enid went with "When We Were Young" by Adele. It was way too similar to her audition and made us question whether she would be able to sing a different type of song.
TSoul went with "These Arms of Mine" by Otis Redding. It was a solid performance, but nothing spectacular. It was enough to advance to the live shows.
Aaliyah Rose and Brennley Brown
Brennley went with "Up to the Mountain" by Kelly Clarkson, and it was amazing. Everything about it was on point, and it proved she had what it took to make it far in the competition.
The sad thing about this was that Aaliyah's performance was full of energy. It was sad to have these two performing against one another. Another coach picked up on this and Aaliyah was part of a steal.
Winner: Brennley Brown
Steal: Aaliyah Rose to Team Blake
What did you think of the performances? Was the right person saved?

Did the coaches manage to get the people they wanted for their team of singing sensations?
That was their plan on the third night of the blind auditions, but there was a lot of tension as each coach tried desperately to emerge from the auditions stage with some solid singers.
This was made difficult by the contestants who got to choose which team they joined. All of this was made possible by the coaches turning those red chairs because they liked what they heard.
Oh, and we can't forget Gwen Stefani trying to imply the contestants can get the best of both worlds because she is boning Blake Shelton.
Let's run down the list of people who managed to make it through the audition stage of the reality hit...
23-year-old Ashley opted to sing "Let Him Fly" by Patty Griffin. It was a solid performance, but it did not impress Adam Levine. Yes, you guys, Adam did not turn his chair for this one.
That left Gwen, Alicia, and Blake to duke it out to have Ashley. Gwen felt the need to flaunt her relationship with Blake to her advantage. She reasoned that Ashley would have access to both Gwen and Blake.
Um, that's not how it works, Gwen. In the end, Ashley chose to go with Blake.
Brandon went with Stevie Wonder's "Master Blaster" and it was pretty spectacular. There were a few moments that made me question whether he was for real, but he hit all of the beautiful notes you would expect of someone singing that song.
Brandon decided to go with Gwen, which was a good idea when you consider the fact you could imagine the pair performing a duet together.
Julien wowed the judges with his rendition of "Pride and Joy" by Stevie Ray Vaughn. You could tell from his vocals that he would fit in well with Adam. As you can probably expect, Adam turned around.
It was between Adam and Blake. Julien chose Adam in the end, with Blake looking rather unimpressed that his team was still lacking in the male department.
Quizz was one of the more different voices on the show this season, and that's a good thing. Variety is always best and there's nothing worse than everyone sounding the same on the show.
Quizz opted to sing "Who's Lovin' You" by The Jackson 5. Alicia and Gwen wanted him on their respective teams, but Quizz went with the Queen of the high note, Alicia Keys.
Casi went with "Blue" by LeAnn Rimes. It proved that people know LeAnn aside from her various celebrity feuds. Her voice was a delight, but she started something like a bidding war when everyone turned around to claim her.
Being a country artist, she chose to go with Blake, but not everyone was impressed with this choice, and Adam even threatened to give up because he knew it was happening.
Talk about a sore loser.
That rounds up week one of The Voice's spring season. There is still lots of drama to come, but who will emerge as the winner? Will that winner manage to stay relevant in a saturated market?

Last we checked on Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, the couple was going strong at the People's Choice Awards.
BS and GS certainly aren't shy about their love, but they are careful about controlling how much of their life together goes public.
Pretty much from the time they first hooked up, we've been hearing rumors about Gwen and Blake getting married, but both parties have been evasive when asked about plans to tie the knot.
But that may be soon to change ...
Radar Online is reporting today that Shelton and Stefani are receiving more money to return for future seasons than any other judges on The Voice.
The reason seems to be that producers are well aware that viewers love 'em some Gwake chemistry, and the relationship has proven to be a ratings bonanza.
“[Blake and Gwen] are getting paid an exceptional bonus that is significantly higher than the other judges to keep the spark alive on-camera,” a production source tells Radar.
Of course, the novelty of the fact that two of the judges are dating will eventually wear off, which means Gwen and Blake may have to offer fans more of an insider's view of their relationship if they want to keep the audience interested.
The news of the bonus has led to speculation that Gwen and Blake might have promised producers something special.
Like, for example, an on-air proposal during one of the show's live segments.
Obviously, that's just speculation at this point, but makes an awful lot of sense.
Without the expectation of that sort of event television, it wouldn't make much sense for the network to offer Gwen and Blake significantly more cash than the other judges.
After all, the tabloid interest in their relationship has begun to die down, and that will likely translate to diminishing returns in terms of ratings.
Blake proposing to Gwen on the air would certainly boost interest in the show, however temporarily.
But it seems like producers have some other tricks up their sleeve, as well:
“The producers really want to see Gwen and Blake in competition more often this upcoming season, versus working with each other like they have in the past,” says the insider.
“And, of course, there is a stipulation in their contract, which is more of a break-up clause," the source claims.
"If, for some reason, they call it quits, they are both required to finish out the remainder of their existing contracts.”
Now that could make for some intense competition.
“I love Adam Levine,” Stefani, a mom of three, says. “I feel like he’s not going to believe what it’s like to have a baby and a child.”
Stefani says she’s “so happy” for anyone who gets to “experience pregnancy and giving birth and the trials of raising a child.”

The singer shares sons Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2½, with ex Gavin Rossdale. Dusty Rose, born Wednesday, is the first child for both Levine and Prinsloo.
When it comes to advice for the new parents, Stefani says she recommends they “just keep smelling that baby in the hospital!”
“That’s the greatest smell in the world, that new baby smell,” Stefani, 46, says. “To me, that’s the greatest being in the hospital afterwards. So, they’re doing that right now and I’m so happy for them.”
She insists she didn’t have any insight on Dusty’s unique name ahead of time, but reveals that Kingston had a hand in coming up with potential monikers for Levine and Prinsloo’s little bundle.
“Kingston comes up with really good names,” she says. “So we’re always trying to text each other with what names it could be, and so then just the other day [Adam] wrote me ‘Dusty Rose is on her way!’ We were like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Dusty Rose!’ ”
Stefani adds, “I can’t wait to hold the little tiny thing.”
Kuu Kuu Harajuku, which is based on Stefani’s Harajuku Girls, premieres on Nickelodeon on Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. EST/PST.
The series – which is about the adventures of animated band HJ5 – will air Monday-Friday at 4 p.m., and beginning Saturday, Oct. 8, will air in its regular time slot on Saturday mornings at 8:30 a.m.

Gwen Stefani says touring with her kids was “magical” — but “exhausting.”
In a Friday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the mom of three discussed life on the road with her sons Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and 2½-year-old Apollo as she toured over the summer in support of her album This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
“They had the best time,” she tells host Ellen DeGeneres. “Can you imagine three little boys on a [tour] bus after you do a show like, ‘Get to bed!’ … It’s exhausting. But it was fun.”

The singer, 46, says her middle son especially took to tour life, becoming his mom’s own personal roadie.
“Zuma was so into it … I have a quick change where I was changing costumes and stuff — he was working it,” Stefani explains. “He had his flashlight, headphones; he walked me on and off the stage every single night. For two hours he worked back there — he was so into it.”
And her boys aren’t the only kids tugging at the singer’s heart these days. Stefani tells DeGeneres that she and boyfriend Blake Shelton have been FaceTiming with fellow Voice coach Adam Levine, who welcomed his first child with wife Behati Prinsloo on Wednesday.
“She’s so cute!” Stefani revealed of newborn Dusty Rose.

Just in case singer, fashion designer, mom, reality show judge and timeless style icon aren’t enough, Gwen Stefani can now add kids’ television show creator to her résumé!
The musician has collaborated with Nickelodeon to create Kuu Kuu Harajuku, an animated series focusing on a group of girls — named, of course, Love, Angel, Music and Baby — as well as their leader G, and their adventures in the Harajuku world.
“Partnering with Nickelodeon on Kuu Kuu Harajuku is a dream come true!” Stefani, 46, says. “It’s been incredible to see the Harajuku Girls and the world they live in come to life.”

The premise of the new show, created by the No Doubt frontwoman in conjunction with Moody Street Kids and Vision Animation, has the girls starting a band called HJ5. They run into challenges in every episode that keep them from ever getting to actually play a concert, but they keep working tirelessly to realize their dreams.
“I love that this is an animated series for young girls that celebrates creativity, imagination and individuality,” says Stefani, who has three children of her own: sons Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2½. “I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
The show comprises 26 episodes, and aside from a co-creating credit, Stefani also serves as an executive producer.
“The artwork is so beautiful and the whole series turned out better than I could have ever imagined,” adds Stefani, who also sings the show’s theme song.
Kuu Kuu Harajuku premieres on Nickelodeon Monday, Oct. 3, at 4 p.m. ET/PT. It will run every day at the same time through Friday, Oct. 7 before continuing every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT.

Gwen Stefani's 2016 has been sprinkled with glitter and rainbows.
"I look at this year and I think, I just feel so awake," she told Ryan Seacrest during an On Air interview.
Not for nothing, but the No Doubt frontwoman deserves it.
After enduring the most craptastic year of her life, Stefani filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale in August 2015. A few months later, she joined The Voice as a judge and started dating her co-star, Blake Shelton.
Since then, Stefani's life has been nothing short of magical, what with her romance and This Is What The Truth Feels Like tour.
Without referring directly to her relationship, Stefani told Seacrest that she's a little bummed out that the year is winding down.
"I feel so alive and so grateful and I promise you, the last couple of days of the tour when I knew it was coming to an end...
"I was so depressed because this year has been so full of so much joy, so much gratitude, and all the creativity that came out of it," Stefani said.
Yes, yes, Seacrest thought, switching topics to a little rumor that Stefani and Shelton had hired party planner Jerri Woolworth to organize a special event.
Will she wed again?
"I don't know! God, I don't know. Everything is going so quickly. I'm in the moment and um --," Stefani paused, unable to give Seacrest a straight annswer.
"Look at me! You got me tongue-tied."
The wedding planner rumor started in early August, according to People Magazine.
The bit of news started "circulating in their circle that they've begun preparations for a wedding," a source told the publication.
"There's no date set, but they're planning ahead and having fun talking about it."
To be clear, Shelton had not (at that point) proposed to Stefani, nor has he done so...yet.
"Everyone is expecting it to happen at some point, but Gwen is touring and busy," the source explained.
"The time just hasn't been right."
There are some rumors that build up over time to the point where they may just be true.
Shelton and Stefani's relationship has been drama-free since they started dating, so it would surprise no one to find out that they want to make it official.
Do you believe Stefani and Shelton plan on getting married soon? Let us know in the comments section below.
I'm pregnant! These famous females didn't want to reveal the biggest news of their lives with two simple words.
They wanted to be fun and creative, posting throwback photos… using their pets… sharing snapshots of their existing children hyping a sibling to come… or giving fans a look at the test-based evidence.

“Would you guys sing ‘Happy Birthday’ with us?” the singer, 46, asked the audience at her Austin, Texas, concert Tuesday as she put her arms around her middle child, who turns 8 on Sunday.
The crowd cheers as Stefani’s oldest son Kingston James McGregor, 10, presents his brother with a cake, candles lit and all. About halfway through the tune, Stefani takes her youngest son Apollo Bowie Flynn from someone on stage, and he finishes the song into the mic.
“Happy birthday to you,” the 2-year-old, who is Stefani’s third child with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, can be heard singing.
“Don’t leave! Please, just stay for one second — there’s a very special thing about to happen right here,” the singer begged her audience at the end of her Austin show before bringing Zuma out on stage. “Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale is turning 8 years old.

“He’s been working the tour — he’s been doing quick-change in the back,” the mom of three continues, raising his arm high in the air with pride.
In a video Stefani posted to Snapchat shortly following the latest show on her This Is What The Truth Feels Like tour, her sons can be seen clamoring around the basketball-themed cake.
“What’d you get, Zumes?” a voice can be heard saying in the background as the soon-to-be 8-year-old smiles and looks down excitedly.

Kingston Rossdale is a social media star in the making.
After taking videos as a yelping dog and a mustachioed cowboy, the 10-year-old tried out the popular Faceswap option featuring his mom’s boyfriend, Blake Shelton.
Kingston belts out Shelton’s 2011 country hit “God Gave Me You” while taking on his likeness in the Snapchat video.
Shelton, 40, was on hand to celebrate Kingston’s last birthday in May, taking the preteen on a helicopter ride following a fishing trip.
When Handler asked, “Do you feel like you’re happier than you’ve ever been in your entire life?” Shelton responded, “There’s no question about that. Absolutely no question about that.”

Blake Shelton turned 40 over the weekend, and with him as always to celebrate was girlfriend Gwen Stefani.
Saturday night, the country singer headlined the Country Jam 2016 in Grand Junction, Colorado, where Gwen also performed.
The No Doubt singer shared much of the celebration to social media so we could all experience their love vicariously.

After celebrating her parents’ 50th anniversary with a sweet party and some cake, Gwen Stefani treated her boys to a fun day at Knott’s Berry Farm over the weekend.
The former Voice coach shared photos and videos Saturday of her adorable sons — Kingston, 10, Zuma, 7½, and Apollo, 2 — on her Snapchat account from various rides at the amusement park.

PEOPLE also has exclusive photos of the rocker and her kids — along with her niece Stella — riding the new Ghostrider ride.
“They rode Ghostrider four times and were also seen picking out candy and taffy in Camp Snoopy,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Gwen Stefani definitely just won a bunch of “cool mom” points.
The Voice coach celebrated eldest son Kingston‘s 10th birthday on Thursday with several days of exciting adventures, all of which she took care to document on Snapchat.
On Friday, Stefani celebrated her little man’s major milestone with a trip into the great outdoors to go fishing and take a ride in a dune buggy.
Later that day, Gwen and Kingston were joined by Gwen’s boyfriend Blake Shelton for a helicopter ride. In Gwen’s selfies with Kingston, they both wear headsets and baseball caps and look excited for the ride.
She also posted a pic with Blake, writing “Showtime” across the sweet selfie.

It appears Gavin Rossdale has no understanding of the idiom, "You've made your bed, now lie in it."
Because even though he destroyed his marriage to Gwen Stefani by schtupping their nanny, he's pouting about her relationship with Blake Shelton.
"If it were up to Gavin he would want to work it out with Gwen," an insider told E! News.
"He is still hurt it has turned out this way and now she is in love with another man."
That karma. It is a bitch.
Shelton and Stefani, of course, flaunt their relationship any chance they get, tweeting sweet nothings to each other like a couple of teenagers.
And get a load of their smoldering looks during this performance on The Voice.
It's kinda fun picturing the steam coming out of Rossdale's ears.
Additionally, Stefani has posted numerous photos of herself and her kids spending time with Shelton, and Rossdale isn't having it.
Earlier this week, we learned that Stefani and Rossdale, who share joint custody of their three children, held a secret meeting to discuss family matters.
Rossdale is apparently peeved that his sons have already bonded with Shelton and is afraid the country crooner might try to replace him as a father figure.
“[Gavin] wants to be consulted on everything concerning the kids and the role that Blake is playing in their lives,” a source told Us Weekly.
Sorry not sorry for not feeling sorry for you, Gavin.
Should one of Gwen Stefani‘s sons come out of the closet, the singer’s love for him would not change.
“I would be blessed with a gay son,” Stefani, 46, says in a candid interview with PrideSource.
“I just want my boys to be happy and healthy, and I just ask God to guide me every day to be a good mother because it is not an easy job.”

The mother of three — she coparents Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, with Gavin Rossdale, 50 — says it’s a topic that often comes up in her circle.
“I always ask my gay friends, ‘OK, so what was it like when you were a little boy?'” she explains.
She explained, “As long as my boys are protected and happy and I’m spending quality time with them, whether it’s doing sports or doing nails, it really doesn’t matter.”

After a 12 year wait that felt more like a 40,000 year wait, Gwen Stefani’s third studio album, This Is What The Truth Feels Like, finally dropped on March 18.
Charli XCX was supposed to work on it with Gwen, and had only glowing things to say about her. She told MTV:
“We actually never worked in the room together, which was not so weird for me, but I think for her because of the way she song writes… It was incredible to work with her. When we finally met—we had been emailing—she’s just like so badass. I really admire someone who really is at the top of their game and has never made a bad decision, I don’t think, and has constantly kept cool and is so nice, and I think that’s cool. I don’t have time for people that are a-holes. I have a lot of time for Gwen.”
However, when asked why the project got scrapped by EW, Gwen didn’t have such inspiring things to say about Charli XCX.
“Every time people would write things, I was like, ‘That’s what I sounded like 12 years ago—maybe you should call Charli XCX or somebody else.’ It felt weird and fake.”
Was Gwen basically calling Charli a knock-off version of herself 12 years ago? Because it kind of sounds that way.
Last week, we reported that Blake Shelton was "furious" with Christna Aguilera, due to the fact that the pop songstress replaced his girlfriend Gwen Stefani as one of the judge/coaches on The Voice.
Now, it seems the battle on set may be even more intense than previously thought, as Christina is reportedly pissed about a lucrative deal that was offered exclusively to Blake and Gwen.
“Blake and Gwen are getting an interesting offer from the show’s execs,” a source close to the show tells Radar Online.
“Producers want the two of them to give fans a full-on love-fest this season when she is a mentor on Team Blake, and they are going to throw in huge bonuses for exclusives, such as on-air duets, engagements, etc.”
The insider adds that "Christina is furious" over the arrangement, as she feels that Shelton and Stefani are receiving special treatment as a result of their high-profile relationship.
“Christina wants Gwen out of the picture and is already throwing mini-tantrums about it,” says the source.
“She said that Gwen is ‘not vocally talented’ and would not be on the show at all anymore if it was not for her relationship with Blake.”
Not surprisingly, Shelton isn't exactly worried about what Christina things about his possible future wife, Gwen.
“Blake really does not care what Christina does or says,” the insider says.
“He is a completely different person now because of Gwen, so much more laid-back. He said that he’s grateful the show is the reason that he and Gwen found each other.”
We're sure he's also grateful for the tens of millions that the show has put in their pockets.
Let's jump to conclusions!
A great woman named Samantha Jones once asked, "Just to be clear...this is a ring with diamonds...it's not a diamond ring, right?"
On February 6th, Gwen Stefani and her two younger sons watch their big brother, Kingston play flag football at a Los Angeles-area park.
Afterwards, the gang was picked up by Blake Shelton, which is kind of adorable but must send Gavin Rossdale through the roof.
Anyhoo, Hollywood Life claims that Stefani was wearing a never-before seen diamond band, which could potentially be a gift from Shelton.
“Blake has something super sweet planned for Gwen on Valentine’s Day,” someone close to Shelton told the site.
“It’s going to be a huge romantic surprise. That’s what he’s been telling his close friends."
On February 4th, a fan told Shelton via Twitter that he looked displeased with life.
"You looked cranky yesterday with Gwen and of course rumors started flying that you two were unhappy," the user tweeted. "It's a no win."
Duh, Shelton responded.
"I looked unhappy because there is always a herd of complete dipshits chasing us around taking pictures," the country singer and Voice judge wrote.
Shelton continued to slam tabloid speculations.
"I've read more complete bullcrap about my personal life, my next album and my job on the voice this week than ever before... EVER Before!" he wrote.
It's been almost five months since Blake Shelton filed for divorce from Miranda Lambert, but it seems Miranda has suddenly decided she'd like to give the marriage another try.
Unfortunately, it looks as though she's the only one who feels that way.
As you've probably heard, Shelton is dating Gwen Stefani, and apparently, the relationship has made Miranda feel possessive.
After weeks of peaceful separation (during which they even gave one another friendly shout-outs on social media) things have officially gotten weird between Blake and Miranda, as Life & Style is reporting that Lambert will do anything to get Shelton back.
And apparently, if she can't do that, she'll settle for ruining his relationship with Gwen.
Sources say while they were together Blake and Miranda both cheated on one another, but Miranda formed more intimate relationships with her side-pieces.
As such, she assumed she would be the first to move on.
Insiders tell the tabloid that she's royally pissed that Blake "won" yet another aspect of the divorce, and she's become obsessed with reaching out to Blake.
Those who know the singer best, however, say it's unlikely that Miranda would be taking such an interest in Blake if he were still single.
So it seems like Miranda is the competitive type. Unfortunately for her, this isn't some sort of reality game show. And by all appearances, Gwen has already "won."
We apologize, Carson Daly.
And consider yourself warned: you may not want to hear about them, but we're about to talk more about Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton...
The pop star herself released a statement on Wednesday afternoon, confirming she is officially dating Shelton and has been for a little while now.
“Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating,” a rep for the female artist said.
But what, exactly, does this mean? How serious are things between The Voice panelists?
Are they having sex? Probably. Stefani recently called Shelton hot, implying that she's possibly seen him naked.
Meanwhile, here are two new pieces of information we've learned since Stefani and Shelton outed themselves as a couple:
- They've written a country song together. According to a People Magazine insider, the track has yet to be cut, but it centers on telling a lover to leave the relationship if that is what he or sge truly wants.
- Shelton and Stefani visited the former's home state of Oklahoma. The trip took place a few weeks ago, on October 26, and that's when the above selfie was snapped
Before you think this means Shelton and Stefani have been knocking proverbial boots for longer than they've let on, consider this twist:
Adam Levine joined them for this trip. It may not have been romantic in nature.
But the singers were spotted at a Country Music Awards after-party late Wednesday night.
Cameras captured Blake and Gwen holding hands (!!!!) while entering the Warner Brothers party held at Warner Brothers Music in Music Square, Nashville around 12:15 a.m.
What does all this mean? Only very positive things, according to Shelton himself.
"Awesome night tonight. So many great things happening in my life," he Tweeted after the CMAs.
We're very sorry, Miranda Lambert. But we might as well fit Stefani for an engagement ring at this point.
Gwen Stefani Opens Up About Raising Her Boisterous Boys and Halloween Excitement: ‘They’re at the Scary Phase’
If you’ve been counting down the days to Halloween, Gwen Stefani is standing in the pumpkin patch with you.
“I live for the holidays,” Stefani, 46, tells PEOPLE. “I had my Halloween costume and the decorations up before October. [The season] is so short — it’s only four weeks, so you want to see all of those things.”
For Stefani, dress up can’t come early enough: she has already slipped into her first costume at her niece’s birthday party.
“I was a ballerina,” she says. “It was literally 104 degrees out, and I was like, ‘I am putting the tights on and I am going to be a ballerina and there’s nothing anyone can do about it right now.'”
While stylish Stefani goes glam by default, her sons with ex Gavin Rossdale — Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 20 months — are big on the gory looks this year.

“They’re at the scary phase,” she says. “They want to scare people. They’re like bloody zombie guys.”
She adds with a laugh, “They just do their own thing. I have no control if I try. I yell and scream and threaten — all those kinds of things. Not when it comes to costumes, but everything else.”
No matter what, though, the proud mom will take on trick or treating with her boys.
“We always go out,” she says.
Try as she might, Stefani can’t seem to shake the feeling that she’s overpaying for her family’s Halloween habit.
“Every year, I’m like, ‘You know what? We should do the sale after Halloween. Why do we go right before and buy stuff? That’s stupid,'” she tells PEOPLE while laughing. “And then this year we did it again. We went right before and bought all this new Halloween stuff. There never seems to be enough, though. We keep collecting it.”
It’s already been a big month for Stefani, who spoke with PEOPLE one day before her MasterCard Priceless Surprises concert at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Oct. 17. The event lived up its title when Stefani debuted an emotional ballad, “Used to Love You,” which was inspired by her split from Rossdale in August after nearly 13 years of marriage. The song quickly became a top-trending topic on Facebook and skyrocketed up iTunes’ most-downloaded songs chart.
“This birthday was weird. I got so emotional,” she reveals, going on to describe a big birthday card multiple people signed for her. “I literally felt so overwhelmed and loved that I was weeping in my kitchen, going, ‘Oh my God, I just feel so much love around me.'”
She wipes her face and says, “It’s making me get emotional, but I just feel that right now. And I feel very grateful for it.”

Things seem to be heating up over at the The Voice between newly divorced co-hosts Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. The pair have always had good chemistry, I’ve never seen the show but my understanding is that all Shelton does is flirt with people, co-host or contestant.
Shelton’s divorce with my favorite contemporary country singer, Miranda Lambert, was finalized in July, on the same day they released a statement saying their marriage was over. There were rumors of infidelity, but Shelton and Lambert have continued a friendly rapport, joking and flirting over Twitter.
Stefani and Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale, announced their split in August after 13 years together. The couple have three sons together and said in their statement that they “are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment.” However, their union never resulted in a prenup and Rossdale has apparently grown accustomed to a certain standard of living.
All the sources quoted are saying something different, so I think it’s pretty likely this isn’t happening. Stefani is also, like, really cool? Not that I’m saying Shelton isn’t, but I don’t think he would have let the names Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo fly. I just don’t see a future for these two. But I guess if you’re just divorced and trying to have fun, it’s definitely a smart idea to hook up with a co-worker.
We all know demanding people in our day to day life. The person who MUST have a certain coffee cup from the company stash. The one who can't STAND if the office manager doesn't buy a certain creamer. That guy who complains to anyone who can hear if he has to park somewhere other than his "usual" spot.
Those people can be total buzzkills.
Well, guess what. Some of our celebrities can be demanding too. But this is what it takes to get them on the stage, so managers and reps and venue personnel the world over meet their demands and enjoy their brush with fame. (Or they don't. That's totally possible.)

Blake Shelton is one man on the prowl.
After separating from Miranda Lambert, the country crooner wasted no time and is now reportedly shacking up with The Voice co-host Gwen Stefani in the romance department!
“They’re trying to keep it on the down-low, but it’s not happening partly because they’re all over each other,” a source tells Life & Style.
“The chemistry between them is off the charts. Everyone on set sees that Blake and Gwen are falling for one another.”
Meanwhile, Blake is trying to deflect this rumor-mongering by joking about Rihanna to Access Hollywood: “…she’s crazy about me. We’ll probably end up hooking up at some point. I’m just saying.”
