I know Blake Shelton cannot be serious. Because who could possibly be drunk 90 percent of the time and still hold down a few high-profile jobs and tweet constantly? (He currently has 12,681 tweets, compared to his wife’s meager 2,337.) But that’s what Shelton says when he opens a box full of questions in a video on Rhapsody’s website . “Ninety percent of the things that I write on Twitter, I have alcohol in my blood system,” he admits. And how does he feel about clowns? “I don’t give a crap about clowns. That’s the dumbest question I’ve ever read out loud in my life,” he says. In fielding other questions, he says his hair is the reason he’s so sexy, he will never wear skinny jeans and Miranda Lambert never gets up early enough to go turkey hunting with him. The last question he pulls out of the box is about building the perfect man cave. Shelton says it should have these essentials — beer, a calendar with photos of scantily-clad women, a card table and blood on the floor. “It doesn’t have to be human,” he clarifies.
