Blake Shelton Shows Off His Cooking Skills in New Music Video

02/14/2014 at 02:55 PM ET

We now have proof that Blake Shelton knows his way around the kitchen — but don’t go hailing the country star a domestic god just yet.

Shelton chose Valentine’s Day to release the romantic(ish) video for his latest single, “Doin’ What She Likes,” which shows off his impressive skills in the kitchen, but ends in disaster.

The video begins with him chatting with wife Miranda Lambert on the phone as he gallantly declares that he’ll cook dinner for his bride.

“I think it’d be good for me,” he says to Lambert, who is heard but not seen. “Fan the flames a little bit.” (Shelton asked Lambert to appear in the video, but his rep tells PEOPLE she had to decline because she was opening for George Strait the day of the shoot.)

The Voice judge then gets to work, shedding his jacket and hunkering down in the kitchen to prepare the margarita and fajita feast he sings about it in the song.

Forgoing an apron, we see Shelton first halving a lime and squeezing it into a blender to prepare some serious-looking margaritas. This is not a man who skimps on details in the kitchen; we even see him carefully salting the rims of the glasses.

For the meal, he opts to make it all from scratch: We see him pull dough out of a bowl and begin to knead it, even stopping briefly to give his dog a taste test.

Later, he expertly flips the tortillas in a sauté pan. Is Shelton the next Iron Chef? Not quite. He soon betrays his amateur status, sticking his hand in the pan while it’s on the stovetop and hastily pulling it out while mouthing “ow.” A moment later, he spills some of the margarita as he pours it in a glass.

He redeems himself as he cleans up the clutter around the house and makes a path of rose petals into the bathroom, where he has lit candles and drawn a sumptuous bath.

It all looks like a romantic dream come true — until it turns into a nightmare.

We don’t want to spoil the ending, but suffice it to say Lambert never gets a chance to taste the fruits of Shelton’s labor. Watch for yourself above.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Lordy Lordy …. I can’t believe Miranda couldn’t shoot video with Blake because she was opening for George Strait….I would have moved hell or high water to be there. They are a wonderful pair…my favorite of any famous couples.
