Is Blake Shelton addicted to Twitter? Yep! And he freely admits it. "Since I started tweeting I don't have as much time on my hands because any time I get a free moment I have all these random thoughts I want to share with the country," Blake Shelton recently explained to Baltimore DJ Laurie DeYoung.
He didn't mention his hilarious Twitter war with PETA (see Blake vs PETA
, Round 2) but did talk about how much he enjoys sharing his sometimes odd sense of humor with his almost 50,000 followers.
"I love it. I don't mind, I'll sit right here and tell you right now I think it's really fun to get on there on Twitter and write. People are shocked by the things I say on there. Even last night some guy got on and there and said there's no way this can really be the real Blake Shelton."He often mocks or even insults his followers, all in good ol' boy fun, of course. "I follow a lot of people. That's mostly all I do is respond to people. I normally throw out like one thought first thing in the morning and the rest of the day I spend explaining why I said that."
Twitter is so much a part of this life, he's thinking about incorporating it into a rather unique performance for his upcoming show at the Great Fredrick Fair: "I think just for something different I'm going to walk out on stage without a band or a guitar and just Twitter, just a Twitter performance. As I do I'll say I am now going to write this response and then type it in, and then wait for applause. It if doesn't work in the next 10 minutes or so, then I'll probably have the band come out and I
'll play some songs." We think he's joking--We'll see! You can never tell with Blake.
And because no one can interview Blake without asking about Miranda (and vice versa), we also got this tidbit about wedding talk with his long-time girlfriend: "I think about ways I can avoid that subject … For the most part I think we're miserable enough as it is together so why take it to the next step and really become miserable."
Gotta love that B.S! No wonder he's Mr. Twitter!
