Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been spending Labor Day weekend together, and they’re looking really relaxed in each other’s company. So relaxed that they’re sporting Hawaiian-style shirts — maybe they’ve been testing out Shelton’s rumored wedding present.
Stefani took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of herself and Shelton, but she didn’t give away much about what they’re getting up to, simply captioning the post with “Hi Gx.” However, instead of focusing on the couple’s happiness, critics opted to bombard the post with hateful comments.
“Damn your [sic] an ugly couple,” stephanie77grace commented.
Awsumiris was also uncomplimentary, writing, “The most confusing mix matched couple I’ve ever seen. #reboundfails”
While other people insulted either Shelton’s or Stefani’s looks.
“I love Miranda more …. Gwen is fake,” kristy.wales88 wrote — and they weren’t the only commenter to compare Stefani to Miranda Lambert.
“Not hating… Just sayin… MY opinion thinks [sic] Miranda is hotter and more of a natural beauty than caked on makeup…his loss,” jackiedavala commented. Crzyme45 echoed these thoughts, writing, “I liked blake better with maranda [sic] .. Sorry i just do. Gwen seems to [sic] uppity for blake. Maybe it should be me!…”
Really, it’s time people stopped comparing this relationship to what Shelton and Miranda Lambert had. Do you see either of them pining over the other? No.
Lambert is very happy with Anderson East, and Stefani and Shelton genuinely appear to be in love, and if any of the rumors about their relationship are to be believed, they’re very serious about each other — and the wedding bells may sound in the near future.

Of course, not everyone is overly critical, and there were positive comments on the post too, including one from fromdelta_dawn73, who wrote, “Absolutely LOVE the 2 of you together. So glad you found each other during such a difficult time in your lives. Love conquers all!!”
And 81asdanielle agreed, writing, “God, put gwen and blake together for a reason, to love each other. I pray that gwen and blake support and respect each other in this relationship. LOVE IS THE KEY.” We love seeing positive comments like these, and really wish people would stop pitting Lambert and Stefani against each other.
