Gwen Stefani does Elle, and her biggest fan is still Gwen Stefani
Self-satisfied cry-rocker Gwen Stefani spoke at length to Elle magazine about her favorite subject in the world- Gwen Stefani.
In the July issue of the US women’s mag, Stefani aims to clear up rumors that her No Doubt bandmates are newly-jealous of her. No, no- they were always jealous of her. Stefani modestly opines:
“Everybody’s making it like there’s all this new tension, you know, like I stepped away from the band and now they’re jealous of me. And look, maybe there is a little bit of that.”
Stefani goes on to talk about the challenges of balancing motherhood and her career, no doubt newsworthy to the scores of working mothers across the country. Go on, Gwen, tell us what it’s like- we’re rapt!
“I wasn’t even married. Now I’m a wife and a mother of two. It’s a really different role. I always referred to No Doubt as a marriage, because that’s what it’s like to be together for so long and go through what we’ve been through. I can’t really have that relationship with them anymore. My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now. That’s a huge, huge thing.”
I bet no one else in the band has families or lives to deal with!
Stefani also slanders her fellow pop-songstresses, cheerfully dismissing any work her peers might put into their careers and music. On her solo projects, Gwen chirps:
“I just did the circuit. You write with all the same people Christina Aguilera writes with. And the music’s very programmed and done in this very patchwork way. But it was so fun. I felt like I was playing a character.”
Christina Aguilera! That’s hilarious!
Gwen wrapped up with a peek into her inner turmoil. On future projects, she wisely states:
“I just feel very in between at the moment. Like in my cocoon waiting to blossom. I’m so screwed. I might never be able to write another song… I want so badly to write a record. I want to make every other songwriter jealous. But it’s just not happening right now.”
