Gwen is Glamour Germany’s cover girl for March! The cover image is the same as the January US issue of Vogue and inside is a new Q&A with Gwen with the familiar band shot. Huge thank you to the lovely Christina of Gwen Couture for sharing her scans with us!
Here is a rough translation of the new interview courtesy of April.
What is the biggest difference between No Doubt 2001 and No Doubt 2012?
Eight children! We are now all parents.
What are the kids like at concerts?
As time goes by, in any case. Kingston and the Ace are the same age and are now friends.
First single “Settle Down” says, “I’m a rough and tough and nothing’s gonna knock this girl down.” Are you a powerful woman?
Iâ€™m anything but than a superwoman. I stated at this life like any other mother or professional working at as any other human being. Who you are or what you do: Life is never easy and simple.
Were you actually there?
No, Iâ€™m not the cheerleader of No Doubt. We are equal in the band.
How much time do you have for music?
We usually meet in the afternoon to work. At first I was there not very often. Shortly after Zuma was born, I always tired, exhausted, and had a guilty conscience about the band. I thought I was wasting their time. And I would pick it over my guys, because I often did not come home for dinner.
Nevertheless, you can see from photos you are always happy.
I’m happy. Very happy even. I love everything that I do, the music, the clothes and accessories with my fashion labels. And of course, my family is more important than anything else. Finally, I love my children and they are fantastic. But the challenge is huge. Something always goes wrong.
How do you keep your body in shape?
I lift weights and am totally happy if my upper arms look good. Abdominal training is a lot of sit-ups.
We have not spoken about Gavin, youâ€™ve been married for ten years. What is the secret?
That does not exist. We both work together really hard.
You sound like you are surprised about it.
Are you not? It’s amazing all these years. And believe me, our marriage requires a decent amount of work. We continue to make it.
