While attending the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday in Las Vegas, Luke Bryan took some lighthearted shots at his longtime friend, Blake Shelton. Most of the jokes revolved around Blake and his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. In fact, Luke Bryan even commented on his desire to preside over the couple’s future wedding. Although the couple are not engaged, the Georgia native hinted that they should speed up the process.
“If Blake were smart, he would marry her before she goes to an optometrist,” Luke Bryan jokingly told ET. “Every time I meet Gwen, she’s holding her phone way out here to read. I’m like, ‘That’s it, she can’t see!'”
Of course we all know singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani does not need her eyes examined because her boyfriend is the reigning ‘Sexiest Man Alive.’ “He’s perfect for it,” Stefani told People. “Somebody that is funny and has a sense of humor is sexy — that’s the No. 1 thing.”
“It’s interesting because I don’t think any of those things like beauty or sexy or whatever way you want to describe humans is necessarily a physical thing that people are attracted to,” Gwen Stefani continued. “It’s all about the heart, and he has that big ol’ gigantic heart in there, so he’s quite an attractive human. I’m not the only one that thinks it!”
Luke Bryan kept the jokes coming when asked about his new job as a judge on ABC’s American Idol. As you might know, Blake Shelton has garnered quite a bit of fame for his similar role on NBC’s The Voice. “Well, Blake’s got a few years on me, but my intelligence is far superior than his,” Bryan said. “So, yeah, I think I got him. I need some more competition.”
On the other hand, Luke Bryan has been serious about Blake and Gwen’s relationship. One time, he even commented on how well Gwen has managed to fit into the country community so well. “I think Gwen enjoys learning a little bit more about us country people!” Bryan said. “But she totally fits in and has a blast.”
We can’t predict the future, but Blake and Gwen appear to be in a good place. If they do decide to tie the knot, we’ll have to see if they take Luke Bryan up on his offer!
