  1. Tv show creator, and Co-Producer ….and it continues to be a great year for Gwen!!
    Those who have been criticizing her, and there are many of them right here on this board, need to realize she is much more than her music. She is a brand and is a very smart business woman to be capitalizing on her own unique brand. While many other singers have lost relevance she is on this major trajectory. So criticize away as she proves all the naysayers wrong.
    She was the first to make an entire album of music practically in real time about what she was going through in her life and put it out there in the most open and honest way. That resulted in a very successful album and sold out concerts with as many as 23, 000 seats. She did it without theatrical sets like others do to interest and draw the crowd.
    Suddenly singers like Beyonce began to create an imagined drama in their own life to make a similar album. Now Gaga is doing the same even tho it wasn’t a long relationship or marriage…btw, her new song is ordinary and all the criticism Gwen got for repetitive lyric– well just listen to Gaga’s.
    Naysayers criticizing her personal relationship with Blake as fake, are seeing it has been over a year and they are still together and it is highly likely that an engagement is coming. They were voted the most powerful couple in music at Billboard.
    Her country duet was criticized, then suddenly Demi Lovato does a duet with Brad Paisley and Elle King does one with Dierks Bentley.
    It is past time she gets credit for being innovative, resilient and creative. Through it all she has been gracious and professional. Others can learn from her…Ariana Grande with the beautiful voice, lacking all the other qualities. Her new interview with Seacrest is cringeworthy. Contrast that to the one he just did with Gwen.

  2. Nice! Happy for G 🙂

    Btw I don’t get why people are saying all the time she’s getting engaged. Is there any fact behind these rumors now? Because they’re around since they started dating… lol

    1. Not fact, but I think it is because she is traditional and has children, it might be sooner rather than later. Also, since he doesn’t have kids, if that is something they want together they would tend to not delay.
      Then there has been the meeting and merging of their extended families with her parents and brother and sil going to Oklahoma and last weekend Gwen met even more of his extended family at his concert.
      The fandom is saying engaged maybe for her birthday. No proof that will happen tho, just lots of speculation.
