Clooney loves Shelton

Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton is “shocked” that George Clooney is a fan of his.

George watched Blake appear as a coach on hit singing competition The Voice. And the country singer is thrilled to learn George knows who he is.

“George Clooney has heard of me? That’s shocking within itself, so the fact that he likes me is even more shocking,” Blake told Access Hollywood.

George was at a BAFTA even in Los Angeles over the weekend when he confessed to watching the reality singing show. He also shared his approval of Blake specifically.

“I like him,” George said. “I like him on that show. He’s great.”

When Access Hollywood suggested George and Blake go drinking together, Blake made it clear he is free for the Ocean’s Eleven star any time.

“Well, I’m up for that, George. Let’s do it! We’ll go drink together,” Blake joked. “Bring that pig… I’ve heard about it!”

Not everyone is as big a fan of Blake as George is. His cohorts on The Voice recently expressed their opinions of the star – and they were less than complimentary.

“He’s a little boastful this season,” Christina Aguilera told Today anchor Matt Lauer. “And he’s a little lazy this season.”

But Blake remained unfazed. According to the musician, he has more than proven his worth as a coach.

“Clearly my track record doesn’t speak for itself, Matt,” Blake joked. “I mean, there’s almost a separation between losers and the winner’s side of the table.”
