Gwen Stefani is on a mission to spread Christmas cheer ... and to try to force her fans to like Blake Shelton.
In a new interview, the singer isaddressing rumors of secret Gwen and Blake weddings that so many fans have heard.
She says that one of the factors influencing their choices is trauma from past relationships.
Gwen Stefani is happy to announce that, despite rumors, there is "zero pressure" in their relationship.
The interviewer refers to Ellen DeGeneres joking that Blake had confirmed to her that he and Gwen are engaged.
In that interview, Gwen of course told Ellen and her audience: "No he -- no, we're not!"
Now, Gwen explains that "there is zero pressure."
"I think that when there's trauma the way that we had trauma back in the day," Gwen says.
She refers to her contentious split from Gavin Rossdale and Blake's even harder split from Miranda Lambert.
"Like," Gwen continues. "Going through all these hard times to get to a place where you find somebody that’s your best friend."
"That you know that you can depend on and trust and just go through life," Gwen adds.
She's been through a lot of emotional upheaval to get to where she is.
She's in no hurry, she explains, to change things up.
"I think that we'll just try and be in the moment as much as we can," Gwen says.
As to whether Blake is her forever man, she says: "I hope so! I hope so."
Gwen admits that there were times when she couldn't imagine the happiness and stability that she currently has in her life.
"I never thought I would get this moment," Gwen confesses.
"So it’s just really special," she explains.
After all of the rumors of secret engagements and multiple secret weddings, it's good for fans to hear an explanation.
Some expected that she and Blake would remarry right away.
It is great to see her taking her time.
Gwen also spoke further about their relationship as she discussed filming a music video with Blake.
Apparently, despite being a music star in his own way within the Country Music community, Blake hates filming music videos.
Some musicians feel awkward or inauthentic filming them, even though they can help push songs and become works of art.
The fact that Blake was part of Gwen's video is very sweet and shows how willing he is to indulge her.
That said, a sizable portion of Gwen's fans have seen more than enough of Blake for their liking.
Seeing him in a music video is not what they want.
But he's part of Gwen's life. They will need to accept that.
Gwen's interview made reference to her interview with Ellen.
A source close to Blake told HollywoodLife that Blake was very amused by it.
"Blake thought Gwen’s interview with Ellen [DeGeneres] was absolutely adorable," the insider shared.
"She looked gorgeous and was so smart and funny," the source noted.
The insider revealed: "He’s watched the video at least ten times now, and it still makes him smile."
That is, admittedly, very cute.
