Gwen was asked about her relationship with the late David Bowie and couldn’t find enough words to describe just how amazing he was. She told the story of how No Doubt performed alongside him in Brazil on the Tragic Kingdom tour. She said Bowie welcomed the band with open arms and was “generous” and “sweet” to everyone. Gwen talked about going on her solo tours with members of his band, drummer Zachary Alford and bassist Gail Ann Dorsey. She continued to see him at different events over the years and Gwen shared that “he didn’t let you down whenever you get to meet him”. “I just don’t have enough amazing things to say about him.”

When asked what her biggest passion currently is, Gwen responded with songwriting saying it’s been a source of “therapy” for her and couldn’t imagine what she would have done last year without it. “[The studio] was the only place that felt okay.” She also credits The Voice for helping her cope saying it’s been inspiring doing something new after everything she’s done in her career. Gwen says she still loves designing but spent a lot of 2015 creating behind-the-scenes (i.e. Urban Decay line) and is excited to see it all being released now.

Gwen says even though she had written many songs before, she felt like “Used To Love You” was very special. “This one just had that magic to it.” She shared that she was headed off to the studio again later that afternoon.

The interviewer dug deep and asked Gwen if she was still reeling from the heartbreak over her divorce and was honest in answering, “I think that anybody that has a family that broke up is going to be devastated for a long time. I don’t know if you ever get over that. You know how time heals and so many amazing things have happened at the end of last year and even this year so far. I’m just trying to live in the moment… What did Maria say in The Sound of Music? ‘When one door closes, there’s always a window open somewhere.’ I feel like I’m trying to find the good out of the bad. There’s so many good things that have come out of it. I just keep using my faith to move forward.”

We admire her courage for staying strong and continuing to be so honest and sincere about her situation. She seems incredibly happy and we wish her nothing but love and support.

DJ Danny Hill mentions a rumor (that we’ve never heard of?) of Gwen having a vacation home on Kaui and she shared that she’s never been to the island before.

Gwen feels more grateful than ever now in her life. The interview takes her back to some of No Doubt’s early radio shows during the early part of the Tragic Kingdom tour and says that they were huge for the band. She also says one of her fondest memories of playing in Hawaii was alongside Madness in 1998 during the band’s mini-tour. “I defniently know that No Doubt wouldn’t be a band if it wasn’t for Madness,” calling them a huge influence on her.

Gwen admits she had a really hard time writing Push and Shove and says that being on The Voice was something that she needed to “switch things up a bit” saying it “just inspired” her “in a whole new way.”

She shared that she’s written three new songs recently and was curious after the holidays if her “channel would still be open”.

She revealed that she’s known Greg for quite some time and he actually helped Gwen put together her band for the Harajuku Lovers Live tour in 2005.

When asked how she approaches writing music, Gwen says she thinks about lyrics first and then melodies. She says that she comes with an initial idea for a song with lyrics and a title and her group helps her create music.

In one of the best interviews of the week, Gwen is complimented on her L.A.M.B. label (which host Sheri is a huge fan of) and says that she feels like she goes through phases with music and fashion is finding herself “in a real musical place right now”. She shared that she spent last year designing and finds it exciting how it’s all coming out at the same time.

She says that she has “creative hurricanes” and “obsessive moments” while creating and is in one currently while writing her new album. Gwen feels like songwriting is the most gratifying accomplishment for her and is still having success in the studio in the new year. “Just to walk in [the studio] and have nothing and drive home with a song that represents wherever I’m at in my life and then share it with people… that’s my favorite thing to do.”

Bob praised Gwen for always taking and owning the stage when she performs and brought up No Doubt’s opening gig for the Rolling Stones in 2002 in Atlanta. Gwen called the show “incredible” and still couldn’t believe that they had the opportunity to play with them.

When asked how she keeps herself sane while finding her personal life dragged all over the tabloids, Gwen says that she’s never been the one gossiped about and feels like people are paying attention more due to her being on The Voice. She’s never let other people’s opinions get to her and keeps herself surrounded by her family and friends and “lives in reality”. Gwen admits the toughest part of it is keeping her children safe and takes the time to sit down with them and explains what’s real and what’s not.

  1. 2 interviews down and nothing new… Boring talk! They kept asking her pointless questions… I guess she’s still promoting Used To Love You…?

    1. For the love of God, if she’s doing new interviews to continue to promote UTLY and nothing new, then her team is clueless… maybe she needs to move away from Irving Azoff (I thought it was too weird she moved away from her old management with ND and signed with him and the guys didn’t).

  2. I think UTLY is catching a second wind and seems to be doing better week over week on billboard. Let’s see how it pans out and if it can get on the radar of the general public, and hit top 20.

  3. — to add to that– each week it’s marked with “Gains” so each week it’s doing better than the week before. I think if BDL and STF never went out, this song would have had more buzz, but those 2 set her up to fail, but once people hear it, they get into it. This promoting is helping a lot. I think the 2nd single will ride off the 2nd single by about 1-2 months, and that won’t be out until UTLY is losing traction and not gaining anymore.

    1. U too?? Truth is, she has hired a surrogate but for PR reasons she’s going to wear a fake belly just like Beyonce did. LOL!!

  4. I agree with Cynthia…I didn’t really see the point of these interviews? It’s good she’s promoting UTLY, but she needs something new to say…like…an album release date? Or a second single release date? A show? Something to keep people interested?

    Gwen answered the teeth question by not answering it LOL Weird question.

    I doubt Gwen has the time to do a big tour with The Voice, Blake, kids, brands, etc. She will probably do some Mastercard shows or local shows.

    Off topic, but no mention on the site of the band’s tributes to Bowie? I love how they cut Gavin out of one of the pictures. I guess he no longer exists LOL

  5. I know it’s not appropriate but what exactly happened to Gwens teeth?. I find it fascinating. I initially thought they just receded the gum line to make them appear longer but they look wider too. It just seems extreme. She had perfectly nice teeth.

  6. I agree that the teeth question was odd, but I can see people actually wondering about her teeth… They definitely look “different”. Like Cynthia says, Gwen probably has veneers. I don’t quite see why, though. Her teeth were fine and now they look a little… extreme. Almost cartoon-ish tbh. When did snow-white teeth become a common beatuy standard anyways? I mean, really no human being naturally has teeth like this. Yeah, yellow teeth aren’t nice, but you can still have naturally white teeth without bleaching the hell out of it.

  7. Yep! Those are definitely veneers. Very common in the Hollywood scene. Anyway it was a rude question. That guy Mathew Blades, I really don’t think he likes Gwen at all. He’s so rude and sexist.

  8. I loooooooove that she was asked about the god/man that was DAVID BOWIE!!!

    The teeth question was funny and the answer she gave was a crystal clear answer to me LOL!!

  9. on the “Bob and Sheri Podcast” at 4:30, right after they play a clip of Don’t Speak they play an instrumental that I don’t recognize, could it be a new Gwen song?!
