But I want to KNOW!
Gwen Stefani is on the September cover of Cosmopolitan, taking a from talking about Blake Shelton for two seconds to get back into talking about her breakup with Gavin Rossdale. I can’t believe I live in a world where I’m saying that I feel SWEET RELIEF to talk about Gwen and Gavin, but here we are. The magazine styles Gwen pretty typically- no surprises there. What’s frustrating is that clearly some SHIZ went down with her husband and she’s still not at liberty to say. DAMN. The highlights:
On whether anybody knows the specifics about what happened with Gavin Rossdale: “Nobody except for my parents, the people involved, and whoever they told. Nobody would believe it if I could really say what happened. I went through months and months of torture.”
On whether she knew something was going on: “All you have to do is listen to every single song I’ve ever written and it’s all there. It’s an ongoing theme that I’ve had for a long time.”
On writing a song with Blake, which she never did with Gavin: “…We were both having trust issues, as you would if you were us. It was like, I have so many problems. How can I now be getting into another potentially huge problem? What am I doing? Blake wrote the song and sent it to me. He was like, “Help me finish it.” I wrote a verse and sent it to him, but he was gone because he doesn’t live in L.A. He didn’t have Wi-Fi, so he wasn’t answering me back! As soon as he came back to town, he brought his guitar over. We were like, “We wrote a song together! This is crazy!””
Gwen clearly has made a living writing about her relationships a la Taylor Swift, but if you look back at her last album (which came out in 2006, YIKES) you’ll see that there many songs about relationship stress which makes me think she was having problems with Gavin the whole time. Sigh.
