BLAKE SHELTON’S Tweets tend to be silly, and sometimes funny . . . but on Monday he got serious by calling out the artists who trash the music of their peers.
He wrote, “Looking ahead in life I hope to NEVER be one of those artists who bitch about other artists’ music. It’s transparent, whinny and pathetic.” But since he flubbed the spelling of “whiney”, he lightened up and addressed that in his next Tweet.[Blake tweet] [Blake Tweet sp check]
