Recently, Blake Shelton shaded ex Miranda Lambert in a subtweet. He seemed to be gloating over her recent bad press.
He's gotten a fair amount of backlash over it, but he's never actually confirmed that his tweet was about Miranda.
In the video below, he's asked directly. And he gives a very blunt answer.
The tweet, of course, read:
"Been taking the high road for a long time."
That's debatable, but whatever.
"I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!!"
It is then that he shares that he believes that someone is getting what they deserve.
"Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It's karma!!"
That tweet was almost universally interpreted as a dig at Miranda Lambert, after it was revealed that she was dating a married man.
As you will see in the video below, E! caught up with Blake Shelton and asked him about the tweet.
At first, he replied:
"I don't care what ..."
He then trailed off, as if thinking better of whatever he had been about to say.
Which was probably smart.
But then ... his fellow The Voice coach, Kelly Clarkson, decided to chime in.
Clarkson eagerly tells the interviewer:
"You have to know, y'all: Blake just loves stirring the pot -- even if there's nothing to stir!"
Some people like to create chaos just to see what the reaction is.
Kelly says that Blake will instigate things between her and Adam Levine for his own capricious enjoyment.
"He will literally start a fight between me and Adam out of nothing."
Here, she employs a strange analogy.
"He just enjoys to sit back and watch -- and people take off like little ants! Y'all are playing into it. You are playing into it!"
We suppose that we've seen ants behaving frantically, but that is not the first comparison that comes to mind for frenzied speculation and drama.
Blake, after watching with amusement as Kelly exposes him as a drama instigator, does eventually decide what he wants to say.
"Look, here's the deal: If I meant for people to know what I was talking about, I would have said what that thing was."
We told you that he was blunt.
"I'm not gonna stand here and talk about it."
Even though he is literally standing there and talking about it.
"All I'll say is it's amazing to see people turn it into what they want it to be, even if it doesn't even make sense in that context."
So that's ... super vague.
Kelly then reminds him:
"You like to stir that pot!"
Miranda Lambert was with a man named Jeff Allen before she ever hooked up with Blake. Also, allegedly while she first hooked up with Blake.
Which, among other cheating rumors, doesn't give Blake a lot of moral high ground.
Allen's response to that subtweet about karma was to blast Blake as a lying, cheating SOB.
He later deleted the tweet, but he clearly wasn't amused by Blake's gloating.
We doubt that he's amused by Blake "stirring the pot," either.
Take a look at the video and decide what you think of Blake's "explanation."
