When Blake Shelton was bestowed People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” title, he knew a bad mood was looming.
As far as Blake is concerned, photo shoots are the worst part of his “job.” But as the Oklahoma crooner told Kix Brooks on American Country Countdown, he can be talked into it, unlike the King of Country, George Strait.
“Photo sessions, without question, are the [worst thing I have to do],” says Blake. “In fact, I did a magazine [shoot]—it’s been like three years ago now—and it was Men’s Journal. And it was a photo shoot and interview, and they did great, they didn’t do anything wrong, but that’s when it hit me, ‘I absolutely don’t care . . . I am not doing them anymore.’ And, I’ll be damned if they didn’t talk me into doing one about three weeks ago again.
“I’m in a bad mood the days I wake up and know there’s a photo shoot for an album or anything or for The Voice promo . . . it’s a waste of a day. To me, you outta be able to get away with a picture once every 10 years. George Strait—you can’t tell me George Strait doesn’t use the same pictures from album shoots since 1989. There is nobody talking George Strait into doing a photo shoot.”
Watch Blake and Kix talk about photo shoots, George Strait and much more.
