Because of MTV’s Britney Spears special, a number of you were probably not watching last night’s Country Music Awards on CBS. Which means you missed co-hosts Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire joking about Miley Cyrus. Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal being a homogay. Get it?! Because he was in Brokeback Mountain?! Bottoming?!
Attempting to outshine the disaster that was the pairing of James Franco and Anne Hathaway, Blake and Reba engaged in this exchange:
Blake: “Eric Church has a big hit this year about ‘Smoke a Little Smoke.’ I heard it was about Miley Cyrus.”
Reba: “Don’t make jokes about Taylor Swift. If you make her mad, she’ll write a song about you.”
Reba then talked about how puzzled she is about the men who have ended romantic relationships with Taylor, specifically actor Jake Gyllenhaal, saying, ‘What [was he] thinking anyway?” Blake‘s response: “Wait a minute. He was in ‘Brokeback Mountain.’”
Blake: (after Reba noted that Carrie Underwood‘s husband, professional hockey player Mike Fisher, was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators) “You know who else traded husbands this year? LeAnn Rimes.”
Blake: (noting the huge size of the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas) “I bet it would take Charlie Sheen 12 years to trash every room in here.” When Reba commented that she thought they had agreed to avoid Charlie Sheen jokes, Blake said, “That’s not a joke.”
Throwing in gay jokes in the same bit that you include LOLs about drug users is normally the territory of the Family Research Council.
