Fellow Voice coach Blake Shelton also spoke with Yahoo! about Gwen saying again that he’d never met her prior to the news of her joining the cast for season 7 but loves and admires her passion. He says that you can’t help but respect her as a “a hard-working individual; the success of her band, her success as a solo act, and all the other â€” the fashion stuff”, which he says he knows nothing about but he hears about it from his wife, country superstar Miranda Lambert. Blake also says that he admires Gwen’s work ethic and he’s excited for her to be on the show.
Shifting gears, how do you feel about Gwen Stefani joining “The Voice”?
I love her. I’ve never met her, but clearly I’m a fan. You can’t help but respect what she’s done as a hard-working individual; the success of her band, her success as a solo act, and all the other â€” the fashion stuff, that I know nothing about but I know it’s a big deal because I hear about it from my wife all the time! I’m anxious to be around anybody like that, I think. I admire her work ethic and think she’ll be good for the show. I feel sorry for her, because she’s going to loseâ€” to me â€”but I’ll be nice about it.
Current Voice coach Adam Levine spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the news of both Gwen and Pharrell Williams joining his side for season 7 of the hit singing competition show starting in June. He says that he’s very excited and looking forward to working with the two that are not only “tremendously accomplished” but also very “well respected”.
â€œIâ€™ve been a fan of Gwenâ€™s and Pharrellâ€™s for so long â€” theyâ€™re both such inspirational people. Theyâ€™re incredible, and itâ€™s such a score to be able to get them on this show.â€
