On last night’s episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Luke Bryan couldn’t help but throw a little shade at his friend and peer, Blake Shelton. On the latest edition of Late Night, Meyers asked the new judge on the popular reality series if he reached out to Shelton for advice.
Bryan said, “Sadly, I did. I don’t know why. I would recommend to never reach out to him.” To add insult to injury, Bryan went on to make fun of Shelton’s recent win of People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2017.
Congrats @LukeBryanOnline on your #1 song… Even though you are a complete douche bag and a horrible influence on children.. And dumb.

Bryan joked that Shelton was a “beautiful man – from a distance.” As you may know, the two singers frequently battle it out on social media and in the press.
Following Bryan’s new job on American Idol, Shelton made fun of him on Entertainment Tonight. Blake said, “I think people are just going to realize just how dumb he really is when they see him on national television.”
However, Blake and Bryan are good friends and are just razzing each other for fun in front of the public. Not only is it great entertainment, but it’s also good publicity.
On their friendship, the husband of Gwen Stefani remarked, “Bryan is a great, great, dude.”
Celebrity Insider reported at the beginning of the year that Blake came under fire for taking the Sexiest Man Alive title in 2017 because according to many people out there, the title wasn’t deserved.
Social media users took to Twitter to ask why he was given the award, considering there are other better-looking men out there in the entertainment industry. Whether he’s the “sexiest man alive” or not, Twitter users used the opportunity to point to the way mainstream publications are continually off-the-mark when determining how the public feel about a particular person or issue.
