Gwen Stefani debuted her new song "Make Me Like You" with a live-music-video-cum-Target-ad during the Grammy Awards. If the neon sign that said "Blake's" in the video didn't give it away, now there's no confusion as to whom the song is about.

During her appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday, the singer confessed after a little prodding that the new track is definitely about Blake Shelton.

"It is, actually," she said. "I will admit that that song is about that guy, yeah," she told Kimmel.



No surprises there, since the song describes Stefani's hesitations of falling for someone else after having her heart broken. "I was free before I met you / I was broken but free / All alone in the clear view / But now you are all I see," Stefani sings.

The lyrics seem to mirror Stefani's experience after divorcing husband Gavin Rossdale this past summer. The couple was married for 12 years before they split and had three children together. Stefani has all but outright confirmed that the relationship ended after Rossdale allegedly cheated on her with their nanny. Despite her heartbreak, the 46-year-old was able to move on fairly quickly, and rumors of a romance with Shelton were confirmed in November.

Since going public, the couple hasn't been shy about their relationship. They looked very much in love at Clive Davis' pre-Grammys party on Sunday, where they packed on the PDA.
