Despite the fact that Blake Shelton cares about Luke Bryan as if they were brothers, he still has something to say about his decision to become a judge on the American Idol reboot. During an interview that he gave yesterday at the opening of his new restaurant Ole Red, the country crooner opened up about Bryan’s new gig.
‘I think people are going to realize just how dumb he really is when they see him on national television, in an environment where there is no script. But you are also gonna see what a great, great, dude that guy is. I love Luke like a brother, I really do, but he is just dumb,’ the star stated.
However, despite the fact that Shelton savagely roasted his buddy, the singer also revealed that they talked about American Idol a lot before Bryan decided to sign.
Blake confessed that he already told him his honest opinion about the gig, adding that the executives are probably mad at him for what they ultimately had to pay Bryan to have him on the team.
He noted that the reported offer is $13 million!
‘I mean, Luke Bryan isn’t cheap. He looks it, but he’s not,’ Shelton joked.
Luke Bryan who used to be Shelton’s mentor on The Voice during last season, announced that he would officially join American Idol yesterday.
