Gwen Stefani has found musical inspiration in her relationship with Blake Shelton. The 46-year-old admitted on Tuesday, while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that her new single "Make Me Like You” is indeed about her country beau.

Gwen’s song features lyrics referencing her romance with the country crooner that include, “Why you have to go and make me like you? Yeah this is a feeling I'm not used to.”

The Voice judges began dating not long after they announced their divorces from their respective spouses last summer. Gwen told Jimmy, “What’s so crazy is like, sometimes tragedy, if you really absorb it, you can turn it into something beautiful."

She continued, "This whole album is really about just trying to take something that was awful and just, I don’t know, healing from it and turning it into something beautiful.”
