It takes a lot to get Blake Shelton to squirm a little. But, somehow Ryan Seacrest did it during an interview on “Live With Kelly and Ryan.”
Ryan: “I heard that your mom used to enter you into pageants.”
Kelly: “Beauty pageants, right!”
Blake: “Why would you bring that up on national television… I hated it so much, that I almost didn’t want to like, be a singer any more. I was like, ‘mom I changed my mind, I don’t like singing. I don’t want to do this.'”
And yes, Blake’s mom was one of those mom that did all the dance moves in the audience, “Oh, yeah. Full-on stage mom. All that stuff.”
Blake told “Entertainment Tonight” once that they were usually all-female pageants.
