“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with “The Voice” coaches John Legend and Gwen Stefani, who chatted about John’s Sexiest Man Alive title, Gwen’s music milestone, life with Blake Shelton, and more.
John admitted of being dubbed the Sexiest Man Alive, “I feel like there's more pressure now,” adding, “It's been a fun couple weeks and I've gotten a lot of attention, some of it good, some of it bad. And I knew it was going to happen, so it's been fun.” Gwen Stefani, who is working alongside John, is dating fellow coach and former Sexiest Man Alive Blake Shelton.
She insisted, “I feel like it has something to do with me. If people hang out with me, they become sexy.”
Blake gifted John some sexy bedazzled VEGOTSMA shorts to represent all his success — “The Voice,” Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony, and Sexiest Man Alive.
Legend joked, “I have yet to wear them. I will hold on to them. They will be a treasured memory.”
Recently, he dressed as an elf on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” portraying the Sexiest Elf Alive. How did his wife Chrissy Teigen react? “She played like she wasn't impressed, but she's the one that told me to take my shirt off for that costume.” He added, “She likes to play like she was unbothered.”
Meanwhile, Gwen is celebrating 15 years since the release of her first album, “Love. Angel. Music. Baby." She said, “It was such an incredible creative time for me." Still, there's no time like the present! "I’m having the most fun of my life ever," she added, "and Blake has introduced me to so much cool music that I didn’t even know existed.”
Stefani said, “He just sits around playing guitar in the house. He plays these crunchy songs. I’m like, ‘They are so good, the lyrics are so good.’ I’m like, ‘I love when you do that, just always play guitar.’”
Both coaches are getting ready for Thanksgiving. John said, “I'm in charge of mac and cheese, which I'm very good at making.” Gwen told him, “I’m doing mac and cheese. Let’s talk about this. You need to help me!”
Gwen also dished on the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos turkey Shelton made last year after one of her sons found the recipe online.
“It actually turned out good. It's crusted and becomes this bright orange turkey. It's very beautiful.” John asked, “Do you brine it, too?” Gwen laughed, answering, “We do not. We are not fancy like the Sexiest Man Alive, okay?”
