Blake Shelton: I don’t take myself seriously

Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton claims his small town country roots won’t allow him to take fame too seriously.

The country crooner and coach of American television competition The Voice hails from a small town in Oklahoma.

Although Blake has achieved fame and success and is married to country diva Miranda Lambert, he refuses to become full of himself.

"I spent so many years wishing for these opportunities, you'll never see me running out of a restaurant with my sunglasses and a hoodie on 'cause I don't want to be noticed," Blake told People magazine.

"I just don't take myself that seriously."

After a recent taping of The Voice, when Christina Aguilera was still a panel member, Blake and his mother Dorothy had dinner with the songstress and her boyfriend.

Blake recalls the evening fondly.

"I wish I could have videoed that night – my mum, who never leaves Tishomingo, and Christina Aguilera!" he laughed.

"We stepped out and couldn't even see [because of all the paparazzi photography]. My mum loved it. She's waving, saying, 'I'm the mum!' It's like, how the hell did any of us get here? Me, much less my mum!"
