‘The Voice’ Coach Blake Shelton Pokes Fun at Taylor Swift at 2012 ACM Awards
We wonder if Taylor Swift went home and sang ‘Mean’ after this. The country cutie took home the night’s biggest prize at the ACM Awards last night (April 1), but not without some good natured ribbing from host and ‘The Voice‘ coach Blake Shelton.
The Entertainer of the Year winner didn’t look very amused by Shelton and co-host Reba McEntire when they talked about Swift and her rumored romance with New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow — or her trademark surprised look upon hearing her name called every time she wins an award.
“Well, how about the rumor that Tim Tebow went on a date with Taylor Swift?” McEntire asked pointedly. The camera panned over to Swift, who looked simultaneously confused, annoyed and over it. Shelton, without missing a beat, retorted, “Now we know what he’s been prayin’ for.” Apparently Swift didn’t mind Shelton’s comment, perhaps because it was somewhat flattering, as she giggled in her reaction shot.
Shelton then took aim at Swift’s utter, visible shock at her victories. “I hear Taylor Swift’s comin’ out with a perfume,” Shelton deadpanned. “It’s called” — here, Shelton breaks into a silent look of surprise — “‘I Can’t Believe I Smell This Good!’”
Swift went back to looking irritated, but she did chuckle. Considering she didn’t look mad at Justin Bieber for making her the brunt of his ‘Punk’d’ debut, she should maybe lighten up a bit. Have a sense of humor, Tay — people usually tease people they like! To her credit, though, she did receive sad news that her date canceled earlier that day, so we’re willing to cut her some slack!
