  • -My first guest is a Grammy-winning artist

  • with a brand-new single out. It is awesome.

  • It's called "Let Me Reintroduce Myself."

  • It went straight to number one.

  • Here she is -- Gwen Stefani! Aw, Come on!

  • -Whoo! -Yay!

  • -Gwen -- -I can't believe I'm back.

  • -I love it. Dude, I want you back every week.

  • -Aww, thank you.

  • -I don't know if you remember this.

  • A few years ago, you gave me a suggestion

  • for my girls for Christmas morning to --

  • -Yes. -To put Christmas wrapping

  • on the doorway on their way into the tree

  • so that they rip it open and then see the presents.

  • Is that right? -But obviously Santa

  • and the elves do that. You have to e-mail him,

  • and then he does that, if you request it, yep?

  • -So I requested it. I talked to Santa.

  • Santa put on the paper on the -- wrapped the door so beautifully.

  • And I was, like -- Oh, it was so cool.

  • I couldn't believe it. I was in shock when I woke up.

  • In the morning. And I go down to videotape

  • on the other side, because I want my girls

  • to run in and rip -- But there's just such --

  • I mean, you have boys, so you --

  • I have girls, and they came in,

  • and they politely just pushed it open like it's a curtain.

  • -No! -Yeah, and it was such a --

  • -They didn't crash through it? -They're so polite.

  • They just pushed like it was a curtain.

  • And they're so excited 'cause Santa came.

  • But they didn't rip it or anything.

  • It's like, "I have to take a picture and send it to Gwen,"

  • because it's the best idea, honestly,

  • and everyone should ask Santa if they can do this.

  • But I ended up cutting a hole in the Christmas wrapping,

  • and just sticking my daughter's head in the doorway.

  • -Oh, my God! [ Both laugh ]

  • -Because she wouldn't rip it. -That is so cute.

  • -That's the only rip is that right there.

  • They just pushed it open. -Oh, my gosh.

  • -Well, I feel like you have to take that same picture now

  • every single year, 'cause that's what we do.

  • We always have a picture, like, in front of the paper.

  • And we were at a new house. We moved.

  • So it was, like, a really big deal this year

  • 'cause we didn't know, like, where Santa was gonna actually

  • wrap the opening 'cause it's, like, a really big opening.

  • -Oh, my goodness. -And ours was crashed through

  • by, like, teenager and, like, littles.

  • It was fun. -I want to congratulate you

  • because you and Blake Shelton are engaged!

  • Come on! -Yay!

  • -That's what I'm talking about. I love it.

  • I have questions. How did Blake propose?

  • Did he have it all planned out? What was it like?

  • -Well, um, it was actually pretty magical.

  • And wasn't expecting it at the moment that it happened at all.

  • Didn't have any idea. Nobody knew.

  • I think he had told my dad on my birthday

  • about two weeks earlier. And I got to tell you, like,

  • I was sort of like, "What's happening with us?"

  • Like, it was kind of in my mind, "Like, we've been together

  • a long time now. Like, what's going on?"

  • I was in that place in my head.

  • And we also had this trip planned to come on Oklahoma,

  • and it was one of those COVID kind of, like, not a fight,

  • but it was like, "Maybe we should just cancel the trip."

  • Like, "This is getting too hard. Like, it's not gonna --"

  • Everybody has to get tested, and everyone was on edge,

  • 'cause we were gonna meet up with his sister

  • and brother-in-law and their family.

  • And everything, all the plans, you can't make plans anymore.

  • So, anyways, we were this close to, like, canceling the trip.

  • And we ended up making it all happen.

  • And we were all here at the ranch,

  • and, basically, it happened.

  • But it was like everybody was trying to make it not happen

  • 'cause nobody knew it was gonna happen.

  • And Blake, meanwhile, had this ring, like, I guess,

  • in the side of his, like, truck.

  • And when I say "the side of his truck,"

  • like, his truck is disgusting. It is like things falling out,

  • like, equipment, like total rugged man stuff.

  • -Yeah. Like, mud, you know?

  • -He got mad at me that there's no mud on my truck.

  • He goes, "Jimmy, don't ever show me that truck."

  • 'Cause I showed him a picture of my truck, and it was like --

  • There's not even any -- "I can't even look at it.

  • There's no mud on that truck. You have to use that."

  • He was so disappointed. -I know.

  • -So I can imagine what his truck looks like.

  • It's a real ranch truck. -Yes.

  • And there's, like, a lot of junk in it and dirt.

  • And so the fact that the ring was, like,

  • in the side of the door --

  • And, like, you're driving through trees and stuff.

  • Like, it could just like fall out at any point.

  • -Oh, my gosh. -Anyways, it was pretty magical.

  • And my brother was trying to cook like a hobo stew at home,

  • so he was like, "We gotta get back!

  • It's gonna burn!"

  • And my son was, like, "I gotta go to the bathroom!"

  • And, like, nobody wanted to be there.

  • Anyways, out of nowhere, he just has this ring

  • that's, like, in a cabinet when I opened it.

  • He's like, "Oh, get the fire starter,"

  • and I, like, open the cabinet, and there's this ring there.

  • And I'm like, "Are you serious?!"

  • [ Chuckles ] It was pretty, like, "What?!"

  • And we both start bawling, and everyone was in shock.

  • There was no video. My sister-in-law-to-be

  • was there, and she just started, like, shooting off pictures,

  • and that's the shot that we put out.

  • It was just a random picture. So, it is pretty exciting.

  • -It's kind of fun not having it on video.

  • -We have no plans because of the pandemic.

  • It's like, "Blake, why couldn't you have done it before?

  • Now we can't have a wedding with the pandemic."

  • -[ Laughing ] -Sitting around going, "Okay."

  • Drag it out more. -You guys are so famous,

  • it was actually good news for the world,

  • 'cause we all needed -- any good news, and we'll take it.

  • And I was like, "Yes!" We all cheered.

  • So just know it was awesome. Congratulations.

  • -Thank you. Thank you so much.

  • -And tell Blake he's a hopeless romantic.

  • I've got to talk to him about that truck move.

  • Let's talk about "Let Me Reintroduce Myself."

  • Came out last month, went straight to number one.

  • Congrats on this. -Thank you.

  • -This is the perfect song, by the way.

  • -Thank you, thank you. -And the video,

  • how'd you come up with the idea to do all of your looks?

  • -Well, this is -- Basically, it wasn't my idea.

  • I had -- We were doing that song,

  • "Happy Anywhere," me and Blake.

  • And we were here in the pandemic, stuck,

  • quarantined at the ranch, so we didn't get a chance

  • to do, like, a real video. My brother happened to be here,

  • and so we kind of made the video that we made.

  • But my original idea for that video was,

  • "You be Blake from the '90s, like with a mullet,

  • and I'll be me, the 'Just a Girl' me,

  • and we could, like, be the different versions of us

  • in this video, like, happy anywhere.

  • Like, this weird couple that doesn't make any sense,

  • but we do. -Ah.

  • -And he was not into it. But we could've never done it

  • anyways because we were stuck here at the ranch.

  • Anyways, Blake was the one that said, "You know, that song,

  • 'Let Me Reintroduce Myself,' that's a hit," or whatever.

  • And because he has had like 27 number-one radio hits,

  • and he's been on "The Voice" for 20 seasons picking songs

  • and being around music, I trust him in that.

  • And he was the one who said, "You should, like --"

  • He called me driving to the airport

  • and was like, "You should dress up as you

  • in all your old looks and do this video."

  • And I was, like, "Whoa. That's actually a really good idea."

  • -I mean, look at all these looks.

  • It's genius. Gwen, I'm telling you,

  • it was just -- -Wow.

  • -I just love that you did all this.

  • It's so fantastic. -It was so much work.

  • It was so fun, though, but it was really trippy,

  • because, like, you would basically --

  • It'd be in the original look of what I was back then,

  • and it brought back so many memories.

  • And I never thought, when I was doing those looks,

  • that I would be basically a Halloween costume

  • to other people. -[ Laughs ]

  • Like, that was actually how I dressed,

  • not because anyone told me to, but that was like --

  • I had that polka-dot dress in my closet forever.

  • And just the fact that they became so recognizable,

  • it was really fun to revisit it.

  • And it was just a really fun way to come back.

  • -Is there an album on the way, or is this just a tease?

  • -Yes, of course. -There is?

  • -I mean, that was -- I mean, at first,

  • I didn't know if I would do an album or not.

  • But I have all these songs, and I think that even, like,

  • next week, I want to go back in and start writing again

  • because I don't feel like I'm quite done writing.

  • And I think the writing process has been incredibly exciting.

  • I mean, I love writing. That's my favorite thing to do.
