Blake Shelton is busy wrapping up this season of The Voice all while promoting his new
relationship album If I'm Honest!
The most discussed track on the country crooner's album is undoubtedly his duet with Gwen Stefani Go Ahead and Break My Heart — but some find the love ballad a bit confusing!
When Blake stopped by Tuesday's' Kathie Lee and Hoda, the cohosts agreed that they felt the heartbreaking lyrics contradicted the lovey-dovey "vibe" they got from the song.

Hoda Kotb explained:
"The words are Go Ahead and Break My Heart, and you're singing it to this girl who you clearly love. So we don't get the words versus the vibe."
But the 39-year-old countered that the lyrics are actually extremely romantic, because it reflects his and Gwen's understanding that the relationship could one day go down in flames.

"We were just writing it about … it was hard to kind of let our guards down again, you know what I mean? Just going through some issues, and so that's what the song was even written about. It's like, I know something bad is going to happen, because it always does, so let's just get it over with now."
Awwww, nothing says romance like a doomed relationship!
The singer also blasted rumors that he would be leaving The Voice, noting that they'd already begun filming the next season with new coaches Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus — and, of course, the return of "moron" (Blake's term of endearment for Adam Levine). LOLz!
