Blake Shelton would really rather not talk about how he's probably voting for Trump

Blake Shelton: Gwen Stefani "Saved My Life"

In a new cover story forBillboard, country bro and the new Mr. Stefani, Blake Shelton, is making his political affiliations ever-so-slightly known. He'd previously told Rolling Stone he never wants the election to end because it's "one of the most addictive, entertaining things I have seen in my life." But when he's done being mystified by the spectacle, there's only one president for Shelton's country and his (yep, his) name rhymes with Drumpf. Though Shelton won't directly out himself as a Trump supporter, he's not not doing that:

"I'm not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don't always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don't like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who's crazy here? ... I probably wish there was another option, but there's not."

A ringing endorsement absolutely every presidential candidate wants to hear!
