Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's new romance is shocking everyone, even their friends! Carson Daly, who spends quite a bit of time with Stefani and Shelton on the set of NBC's "The Voice," told Matt Lauer and the rest of the "Today" show anchors on Thursday that he didn't even think Shelton could date a woman as attractive as Stefani. "C'mon I'm a loyal guy," Daly told his "Today" show co-hosts, before saying, "I didn't know. I didn't think Blake could get a girl as hot as Gwen, to be honest. I really didn't. He's a goofy cowboy. She's the queen of cool. But God bless them. They're two of the nicest people in the business. We're thrilled that they're finding each other and good luck, we love you." He also added, in response to ribbing from the "Today" staff: "I'm a loyal friend. It's not my story to tell, but now it's out."

Justin Bieber, 21, has heard several of Selena Gomez's recent hits but he's not sitting down to download her "Revival" album. The Canadian pop singer tells Billboard it's just too hard to listen to music that he assumes is mostly about the former couple's relationship and breakup. But Bieber does say that he's "proud of the woman she is today."
