While looking online, I also found another piece where Mindy mentions Gwen. She actually mentions her in her new book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)! It’s awesome to find out how big of a fan Mindy is of Gwen!
Kirkus Reviews — On the level of fame sheâ€™d like to achieve: I want to rock harem pants or black lipstick like Gwen Stefani does and have people be like, â€œThatâ€™s just Mindy,â€ and then everyone starts doing it.
In a new video with Rolling Stone, The Office‘s Mindy Kaling tells the magazine how much she admires Gwen because she loves fashion. She also loves how much attitude and confidence she exudes in her style and how Gwen’s not afraid to take risks. We put the video behind the cut cause it plays automatically, but below is a quick description of what Mindy says.
Rolling Stone — “There’s a certain kind of pop singer that, when she performs, needs to look, like, a hundred percent beautiful all the time,” says The Office star Mindy Kaling. “What I like about Gwen Stefani and Rihanna is that sometimes they wear stuff and you’re like, if I’m just looking at this, what you’re wearing, 99 or 100 percent of people would be like, ‘That is hideous.’ But because they have so much attitude and so much confidence, it just becomes the most amazing asymmetrical pink fauxhawk, or whatever it is, and that’s what people want to wear.”
