Blake Shelton dedicated a new rendition of his Grammy-nominated track “Honey Bee” to Betty White for her 90th birthday in 2013.
After confessing his love for the Golden Girl, Shelton performed a new version of “Honey Bee,” which he replaced the lyrics to gush over the comedian and her best roles throughout her career. He ended the 90th birthday celebratory song singing, “Betty, you are the best.”
“Betty the gift I brought for you tonight, comes from the heart. You see, I’ve got a confession to make,” Shelton said in 2013 introducing his performance. “I’ve always had a little bit of a crush on you. Since I’m a happily married man, I’ve been denying my true feelings for you, but I’m not going to deny them anymore. In fact, I think I can not deny them best in a song.”

“Honey Bee” is a song that was co-written by Rhett Akins alongside Ben Hayslip and recorded by Shelton. The hit song was released in April 2011 as the lead single from the country superstar’s 2011 album, Red River Blue.
Today (Jan. 17), White celebrated her 99th Birthday and this year, she may not have an extravagant celebration or party lined up but she does have a special gift for fans and a special message. The actress is re-releasing her long-lost series, Pet Set, after fifty years.
“Would you believe it?! It’s my 99th birthday which means I can stay up as late as I want without asking,” White captioned a social media post. “I am also very pleased to let you know about the re-release of my long-lost series after fifty years! I am just so proud of the ‘Pet Set.’”
White blessed followers with best wishes, “I hope everyone is well and staying safe. We will get through this.”
White also told The Associated Press in an email that “since I am turning 99, I can stay up as late as I want without asking permission!”
Happy 99th Birthday Betty White!
