OFFSTAGE: Blake Shelton Brushes Off Men’s Flat-Ironed Hair

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

I’m with Blake Shelton because we both think men flat-ironing their hair is a trend that should just go away. Shelton says it’s his favorite trend in a way, though, because he told People magazine, “It gives me so much ammunition to say how stupid they look.” So says the man with perfectly naturally, healthy waves. He also admits to being embarrassed every morning when he goes on Twitter to see what he tweeted the night before. (One such example might be his tweet from the morning after the CMA Awards .) There are some more serious bits in the story, if you’re into that kind of thing, like when he talks about how becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry was one of his proudest moments. “It’s like winning the Super Bowl if you wanted to be a football player your whole life,” he says.
