Brad Paisley Pokes Fun at Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's Split at the CMAs
On Wednesday, Brad Paisley hosted the 49th annual Country Music Awards for the eighth consecutive time alongside Carrie Underwood, and the pair wasted no time poking fun at Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's recent divorce (at 3:35). "Of course we can't ignore the breakup that really rocked our world. The one that's on everybody's mind," Carrie said. After the camera hilariously panned to Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, Brad joked, "But on a completely unrelated topic . . . Howdy, Blake!" We can't say Blake didn't see this one coming, because he totally called it.
Blake made headlines this week when Gwen Stefani's rep officially confirmed their romantic relationship, saying, "Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating." While you might have been surprised by the news, Miranda sure wasn't. According to E! News, the singer knew Blake and Gwen "were always pretty flirty."
