Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani “Purple Irisis”

Ok, first off, I love Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani together. I’m a big fan of the whole “Opposites Attract” thing, as my husband and I are definitely opposites in so many ways, but after almost 17 years of marriage, I think it’s working out pretty well.

There’s been a lot of tabloid rumors about Blake and Gwen being on the rocks, and I’m thinking the release of their new duet “Purple Irisis” is their “Piss Off” song.

Ok, I am really, really loving that.

Their last couple of collabs were definitely Country, but this is more Pop, with Gwen’s unmistakeable sound, with kind of a No Doubt vibe to it.

I love that it references aging, and still thinking someone is hot, even into their forties and fifties.  Again, kind of living that life right now, as I just turned 41, and it’s not 2006 anymore. My neck is proof of that.

Also, the “purple irisis” reference is to Gwen’s love of gardening, which she does a lot of on Blake’s Oklahoma ranch.

Maybe, haters, just maybe they’re actually happy?

I mean, I get it. Gavin Rossdale is hot and all, but Blake knows how to gut a deer and drive a tractor.

He wins.
