‘Tis the season for promo! Gwen has landed her first magazine spread in close to a year and is on the cover of the upcoming Holiday 2017 issue of Marie Claire. She looks gorgeous on the cover (and reminiscent of her 2011 shoot with Elle) and was photographed by Kai Z Feng for Marie Claire. The issue hits newsstands on November 28 and the magazine has shared excerpts from her interview as well as photos from the shoot.
In the article, when asked about what’s next for her musically, Gwen shared that she feels confident again with song writing and that it used to “be such a stress”. “…There was so much doubt in meâ€“now itâ€™s like, ‘Well, just go and write a song.'” Gwen feels like she has something to offer and would love to get involved in a writing project, possibly a musical in the future. She’s expressed this sentiment before recently as well saying that she would like to write for other artists as well if the opportunity arose.
Gwen opens up about her relationships and candidly said, “For a long time, I could not understand why Iâ€™d had so much heartache in my life.” She’s in a happy place now and feels that everything happens for a reason.
â€œWhat I learned was that my heartbreak was supposed to happen, that it was my purpose to write about and share my story. I met at least 50 to 100 people before each show on my tour and got to hear that my truth and my story translated, and I feel very lucky and honored knowing that.”
Marie Claire has also shared a quick BTS video of Gwen on-set of her photo shoot which you can check out below.
