So… to keep us salivating while we’re anticipating the Elle article, accesshollywood.com posted a couple more quotes from the magazine from her. I tried looking for it the past couple days — no luck. We hear word that it should be hitting shelves tomororw, Thursday. A couple of fans have read the article however and have stated Gwen is very candid and honest in the interview and most of her quotes showing up on gossip websites the past couple weeks have been taken out of context. We can’t wait to read it! We went ahead and bolded the new quotes for you guys.
Fans know Gwen Stefani as many things â€“ a multi-platinum solo artist, a style star with her own fashion line and the frontwoman of No Doubt. But in the July issue of ELLE, the singer said she only ever expected to be a mom.
I never had any kind of ambition,â€ she said of her pre-fame days. â€œI just thought I was going to have babies.â€
Now, as the mother of sons Kingston and Zuma, she told the mag her family â€“ including rocker husband Gavin Rossdale â€” is her first priority.
â€œI always referred to No Doubt as a marriage because thatâ€™s what itâ€™s like to be together for so long and to go through what weâ€™ve been through,â€ Gwen said. â€œI canâ€™t really have that relationship with them anymore. My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now.â€
And that family is a handful, even for a rock star mommy.
â€œKingstonâ€™s whole thing is, â€˜I need, I need.â€™ He is insane right now,â€ Gwen said. â€œWeâ€™re just hoping for the best and that heâ€™s not going to be a freak, but weâ€™ll see.â€
The star said sheâ€™s not one to spank â€“ but admitted sheâ€™s had to get physical with Kingston.
â€œIâ€™ve wrestled him,â€ she said. â€œIâ€™ve gotten my muscles out on him, thatâ€™s for sure.â€
Of the return of No Doubt, who have been on hiatus since 2001â€™s â€œRock Steady,â€ Gwen said itâ€™s been hard to get back into songwriting mode.
â€œI want so badly to write a record,â€ she said. â€œI want to make every other songwriter jealous. But thatâ€™s not happening right now. I might never be able to write another song.â€
Instead, after some fruitless recording sessions, the band is back on tour to spark some creative flames â€“ and though she doesnâ€™t have a Sasha Fierce-like alter-ego, Gwen told the mag that something happens when she gets in front of the microphone.
â€œDefinitely when I go onstage I feel super-powerful,â€ she said. â€œThereâ€™s something that clicks, another side of me. I donâ€™t even have control over it.â€
Her onstage confidence comes from the bandâ€™s early days, when Gwen had to stand her ground in the male-dominated Orange County ska-punk scene.
â€œWhenever I went onstage, there was this automatic assumption that I couldnâ€™t get the audience going because I was a girl. I just ignored that,â€ she said. â€œLike, â€˜Yeah Iâ€™m going to be all made up, and Iâ€™m going to destroy you. If youâ€™re not looking at me right now, youâ€™re going to because Iâ€™m going to f***ing get you to look at me and f*** you! Raaarrgh!
â€œThe F-word was my favorite word,â€ she added.
IF ANYONE HAS ELLE AND WOULD DONATE THEIR SCANS TO BSO IN THE MEAN TIME — WE WOULD LOVE YOU FOREVER! LET US KNOW!
