Blake Shelton: “I Drink Alcohol, and I Always Will Until I Die.”

The singer sounds off on his love of alcohol.

While people fight for the right to bear arms and numerous other causes, Blake Shelton has no trouble defending his right to drink. During an interview with CNN.com, Blake says he takes drinking quite seriously. “You look at me. I drink alcohol, and I always will until I die, and I don't care if you like it or not,” he says.

Blake says his penchant for being direct and saying exactly what's on his mind is one of the reasons he’s been successful on The Voice. “I think the way they asked me to be a part of that show is because I’m not afraid to be myself and say what I'm thinking. I'm not afraid to make an ass of myself,” says Blake. “I feel like if I’m a country artist, my job is to lay my heart and soul on the line, and my heart and soul is being a redneck and drinking and being stupid, you know? That’s what I do.”

It looks like the Country Music Association’s Male Vocalist of the Year prefers to use his outspoken, gregarious personality for lighthearted fun rather than to back sometimes controversial issues. “No, I don’t think I’m ever going to be serious. I’m never going to be political or religious or anything that’s going to get me in more trouble than being wasted all the time already gets me in.”
