Over the summer, country singer Blake Shelton married fellow artist Gwen Stefani. According to Shelton, some critics had called him a "lazy husband." And on December 6 he revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that maybe the reporter was actually right. Here's what he had to say.

After 6 years of dating, the couple began to plan their wedding. But, The Voice judge admitted that he didn't really help his blushing bride, "We're letting Gwen do whatever she wants for the wedding." Apparently, this didn't sit right with one journalist who called him a "lazy deadbeat husband," Yet Shelton admitted to Ellen, "But the truth is: I am."

The singer explained himself, "What do I know about that stuff? Of course it was her and her vision. And all I had to do was drink and kiss Gwen Stefani, I mean, my God. The greatest gig I've ever had." Okay, maybe the writer was wrong about Shelton...

The Sweet Escape singer had previously shared details about the July wedding, during an interview with Seth Meyers. She said, “We are looking forward to that though. It’s gonna be fun. We’re gonna make it really fun." They only invited around 20 of their closest family and friends to celebrate their marriage at the country star's ranch in Oklahoma. Stefani shared, "It’s gonna be like, my mom and my dad and just literally gonna be just family,” Except for one special person who didn't attend the celebration...Adam Levine. Fans thought that was weird since the three of them worked together on the hit singing contest show The Voice. Shelton shared, "I purposely did not invite Adam Levine to my wedding, and I think it's funny!"

This came after Ellen played a video for the audience where Levine jokingly said he "didn't approve" of Stefani marrying Shelton, because "she's so cool, and he's not." The Maroon 5 member added, “I’ll go to the wedding, and I’ll object. I will probably not be invited, now that I’m saying this on live television, but I’ll be there, somehow.” Seems like he predicted it! Shelton admitted, "That's the reason why we didn't invite him to the wedding."
