The pop princess will be helping out all four coaches on the newest season of The Voice, and it sounds like Shelton hit it off just fine with the Barbadian beauty. “I was amazed by Rihanna,” he told Access Hollywood. “She is so funny.” Later, he jokingly added: “And she’s crazy about me. We’ll probably end up hooking up at some point. I’m just saying.” Asked if he sees a collaboration between the two in the future, the “Honey Bee” singer further quipped, “I see a collaboration – maybe not musically. You know what I’m saying?” Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Split: Inside Their Small-Town Life Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their decision to divorce after 10 years together in July.
