Gwen is featured in today’s edition of USA Today (Monday, March 14) with a new interview where she discusses writing her new album and the possibility of touring.
Gwen says that she began writing for the album in last June and some of the songs appearing on This Is What the Truth Feels Like were written earlier this year. “It’s really the first time I’ve written a record about being happy.”
On touring, Gwen admits she doesn’t see herself going on a full-blown tour again due to her three children. “I have three kids, so it’s never going to be like it was before, a real tour. I don’t see how I can do that, with them at school.” And when asked if she could hit the road during summer vacations, Gwen says that she wouldn’t want to drag the kids along on a bus during their time off from school.
She reveals that she has her children half of the time (per their custody agreement) and says that it devastates her. But in how tragic the situation is, Gwen says that she’s had more time to focus on herself and has been “been able to recover the way I have.” “I know that things are going to keep unfolding and evolving, and I have faith that everythingâ€™s going to get better and better.”
