Blake Shelton is cool with Gwen Stefani’s 14-year-old son Kingston even if he hates country music.
Blake Shelton is popular for singing country music. However, the teenage son of his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, doesn’t like the genre. Kingston found it “disgusting.”
Blake Shelton reacts to Kingston’s comment on country music
There is no bad blood between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s son, Kingston, even if the latter is not fond of the former’s music. The God Gave Me You singer wasn’t offended by Kingston’s statement at all.
“Blake thinks it is funny that Kingston said he doesn’t like country music. It doesn’t offend him at all,” the source told Hollywood Life.
“Kingston is a great kid and Blake loves him but he wants Kingston to be his own person and eventually his own man. He is proud of him and loves that he has a relationship with his dad and that they also get along.”
The source also stressed that there was a “great dynamic” and trust within the family. So, Kingston’s comment about Shelton’s music shouldn’t be a big deal. Also, his mom, Stefani, does the same type of music.
“He is just being a kid. He is going to like what he likes and will appreciate what he appreciates. I mean would you think Kingston would be mad if Blake didn’t like Fortnite or something like that? It is just different strokes for different folks,” the insider added.
Kingston’s statement revisited
Last week, Gwen Stefani’s son Kingston hopped on Instagram Live for a Q&A session with his fans. One asked him if he listens to country music other than Blake Shelton’s songs.
The teenager reveals that he hates country music.
“I don’t listen to any country. I hate country,” Kingston said.
“Country is disgusting,” he added.
Kingston is a critic
Kingston is very critical when it comes to most stuff, especially in music. He grew up in a household of musicians. His dad Gavin Rossdale is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the band Bush. Meanwhile, his mom, Gwen Stefani, is the vocalist of No Doubt.
Even Rossdale finds his son, Kingston, critical. He was relieved that Kingston approved of his album The Kingdom.
“Thank God ‘The Kingdom’ is good,” Rossdale said while laughing.
“Because he’s a music critic. He’s a restaurant critic. He is a life critic. He’s got great aesthetics. So I’m thrilled that the record is being well-received [by him].”
