Gwen appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and sat down for a new interview prior to hitting the stage for an outdoor mini-concert. Jimmy praised Gwen for her live music video event last night with “Make Me Like You” and she said that they have been planning it since Christmas. She shared that she only took part in about six days of rehearsals. Gwen confirmed that the stunt double that fell in the video while rollerskating was on purpose to create shock value (which is successfully did!) Gwen then explained more of the movie magic that went on behind-the-scenes to make it all happen in one-take.
Gwen confirms that “Make Me Like You” is about Blake Shelton.
“What’s so crazy is that sometimes tragedies, when you really absorb it, you can turn it into something beautiful. This whole album is really about trying to take something awful and healing from it and turning it into something beautiful.”
Jimmy brings up Tom, Tony and Adrian’s new band featuring AFI’s Davey Havok and Gwen shared that she just recently found out about the “reports” that she was being “replaced” in No Doubt. “They’re doing like a side project, they wanna do a band, like be in a punk band. It’s not No Doubt. All the guys in No Doubt are doing a new band just to do new music.” Jimmy jokes with Gwen about her wanting to return to No Doubt and having to ask the boy’s permission first.
Tom later shared on Instagram a screen capture from RollingStone.com calling out reports that Gwen wasn’t aware of their plans saying, “Hey everybody, the press got this wrong again. We told Gwen last year about our new project. We’re all good, everybody is cool”.
