Gwen Stefani opens up to InStyle UK in it’s upcoming issue, which will hit shelves on June 3rd.
Gwen Stefani on being a Musician
Do you enjoy performing in front of thousands of people?
â€œI love it. It is so awesome. I love getting ready and getting in costume, then performing and being physical. If you donâ€™t play live concerts, nothing feels real. Itâ€™s just a song on the radio that you hear when youâ€™re driving and it doesnâ€™t affect you. But when you walk out on stage and there are people who actually spent their money to buy a ticket and theyâ€™re singing the songs, itâ€™s suddenly mind-blowing.â€
Youâ€™ve said you had writerâ€™s block when trying to work on the next No Doubt record. Have you overcome it?
â€œI just wrote a song, which is really exciting! Itâ€™s not even done and Iâ€™ve listened to it two billion times already. Itâ€™s like I canâ€™t stop. If my husband comes in and Iâ€™m listening to it, Iâ€™m like, â€˜Iâ€™m sorryâ€™.â€
Gwen Stefani on Gavin and Kids
When I interviewed Gavin years ago, he said he prides himself on being an excellent gift giver. Do you ever drop any hints about what you want?
â€œOh, no, weâ€™re not allowed to do that. Itâ€™s just old-fashioned gift giving. He goes all out, you know? Heâ€™s a romantic, so itâ€™s good. He is a creative guy and heâ€™s amazingly inspiring with that creativity. We had a really good Christmas last year; it was fun getting gifts for the kids.â€
Are you and Gavin going to try for a little girl? Someone should get to inherit your wardrobeâ€¦
â€œI donâ€™t know. Having children is the hardest thing Iâ€™ve ever done. No one could have prepared me for how awesome it is and how hard. And having two boys â€“ thereâ€™s a lot of energy. I mean, it does seem weird that I donâ€™t have a girl, but I feel like Iâ€™m running out of time. I also donâ€™t want to spread myself so thin that I canâ€™t even be good for them. â€œPoor Zuma, heâ€™d be the middle guy. Iâ€™m not focusing on it right now, but itâ€™s not up to me anyway, you know? These things are miracles, so weâ€™ll see. Otherwise, the clothes are probably going to go to some girlfriend of Kingstonâ€™s!â€
