It’s no secret that the mullet is making a comeback. You have Morgan Wallen rocking his signature mullet, Midland’s Mark Wystrach was exuding some serious Big Mullet Energy last summer, and now, country megastar Blake Shelton says he’s resurrecting his signature flow back from the dead.
It’s coming back. There’s kids that are wearing mullets now and I feel like it’s time for me to bring mine back. I’m not a trendsetter, but I don’t mind jumping on a trend like that.”
And even Gwen Stefani is on board.
I’m here for it, I love it, I support this 150 percent, but the important question we have to ask right now is this: Will Blake’s new mullet earn him a spot among the best in the Whiskey Riff 2020 First Team All-BME class?
Big Mullet Energy:noun, verb, adjective, adverb, article, conjunction, preposition, and every form of grammar known (and unknown) to mankind.
Definition: “The confidence, the aura, that x-factor that can be unleashed when you’re rocking a kickass mullet. Also known as BME.”
Even with a kickass mullet, Blake just doesn’t have the BME that we’re looking for. It’s easy to have all the swagger in the world when you have a mullet, but BME is more than that. Not be confused with cockiness, and it’s not just walking into a room with the best head of hair known to man. You see, BME can’t be defined simply by how badass your mullet is. BME requires a man that has harnessed an inner greatness birthed out of something that you can’t easily point to, but you know it when you see it. A certain je ne sais quoi (that’s French) if you will.
Anyways, in the same interview with Gayle King, Blake also admitted that his “Sexiest Man Alive” title was bullshit.
I’m like, ‘Wh— what?! I remember when that magazine came out, you know, of course there’s gonna be blowback and hate. But I remember, I was like, ‘Man, they’re right.’ Like, I don’t disagree with any of this that I’m hearing… Come on, let’s face it — they screwed up.”
Don’t sell yourself short Blake, my 52-year-old mom thinks you’re a handsome fella. I’m sure there’s at least a few more of them out there… right?
