Blake Shelton’s New Job Description: Landscaping?
Shelton tweeted the surprising revelation on July 1, writing, "I'm mowing with a push mower. I'm mowing a BIG yard with a push mower. I make a lot of money and I'm mowing a BIG yard with a push mower!!!"
Shelton and his wife, Miranda Lambert, live on a 1,200-acre ranch in Tishomingo, Okla., and also own a 2,100-acre ranch nearby, along with the 700-acre ranch that Lambert bought one town over before they married. So if he's even attempting to push mow any of those properties, he's got his work cut out for him, to say the least.
Of course, Shelton often posts to Twitter with his tongue firmly in his cheek. A quick glance at his most recent tweets reveals an insult to Adam Levine's driving, a post promising fans in West Virginia that he'll be drunk at an upcoming concert, another to the people of Kansas saying, "I'm consuming alcohol that's probably made from the corn you grew," and ... well, you get the picture. Check out some of his funniest tweets in the gallery above.
It's not like Shelton can't afford to hire someone else to mow his many properties. According to Forbes, he and Lambert each earned $28.5 million in the last 12 months, tying for 95th place in the Celebrity 100 list.
Dude — do yourself a favor, and at least spring for a riding mower.
