Is Gwen Stefani's "Make Me Like You" About Blake Shelton? Her Live Grammys Video Has Fans Asking Big Questions
While the Grammys delivered show stopping performances, Target took an opportunity to get in on the action and delivered a live video of Gwen Stefani's new song "Make Me Like You." While Stefani's allegedly fake fall garnered some attention, the real star of the video was... Blake Shelton. With the singer crooning about a new crush, everyone is wondering if Gwen Stefani's new song is about Blake Shelton, her new beau. And it really seems plausible, when you take a closer look.
Considering the song came out shortly after Stefani and Blake went public, the lovey dovey lyrics have got people abuzz. And I mean, look at these things:
I was fine before I met youI was broken but fineI was lost and uncertainBut my heart was still mineI was free before I met youI was broken but freeAll alone in the clear view, but now you are all I see
Um, hi. Remember how Stefani was newly divorced right before she met Shelton? Perhaps, free? From her old life? Newly detached and... alone. But now she's all about that Shelton affection? All I'm saying is that it really fits.
And as some fans on Twitter have pointed out, in Stefani's live video during the Grammys, the restaurant in Stefani's video is named "Blake's." Stefani also pokes fun at her tabloid tormentors by holding up a magazine claiming that she's having an alien baby.
Yeah, I think it's safe to say that she's mixing real life with her music. And I think it's safe to say that even if the song isn't about Blake, she's OK with us assuming that it is.
