Blake Shelton is famous. Like, really famous. He’s a country music superstar, dating a superstar, he’s on TV multiple nights a week and he still tours and stuff. He’s famous.
Famous people have to get their photo taken a lot. Like, more than babies sometimes. And Blake hates it. In fact, he hates it so much he told Kix Brooks he’s not doing them because George Strait doesn’t have to do them. Call him in 10 years when you want another photo.
“I did magazine about 3 years ago, Men’s Journal, and it was a photoshoot, interview and they didn’t do anything wrong, but that’s when it hit me– I don’t care what it means, what kind of exposure… I’m not doing them anymore… You ought to be able to get away with a picture every 10 years. George Strait has been using the same pictures for albums since 1989. There’s nobody talking George Strait into doing a photoshoot.”
That photoshoot and article ran in Men’s Journal in 2013.
