On The Fence About Gwen Stefani’s Recent Revelations?

On the fence about Gwen Stefani’s recent revelations?

Truthfully, I’ve never had a doubt that Gwen Stefani has been a badass rocker/entrepreneur through and through. The American singer/song writer and fashion designer started off her career with the rock band ‘No Doubt’, emerging over the last few years as a successful artist and prominent figure in the music, entertainment, and fashion industry.

And…she’s also been married to the ever so hunky Gavin Rossdale, front man of the band Bush.

Why I love Gwen – aside from her unique fashion sense (ok, no one can top Lady Gaga’s ‘Egg/Womb’ entrance at this years Grammy’s, but you can’t tell me that Gwen didn’t have some influence over the years), Gwen seems like a truly honest person, somehow managing to evade any major form of drama or tabloid frenzy.

With that being said, what’s changed? The 41 year old blonde beauty recently talked about her honest struggle to maintain life as a mother and wife, “I’ve been with Gavin for 14 years, and, let’s face it, that is a huge accomplishment”. The two rockers are parents to 4-year-old Kingston and 2-year-old Zuma.

Gwen also admits about her post baby struggle, “I work out 5 days a week, I can’t imagine not doing it”. With regards to her relationship with Rossdale, the singer admitted, “I wear makeup every single day. I like to wear makeup for Gavin, and I don’t feel energized till I’ve put it on. Then I’m ready to go”.

Her honesty doesn’t go un-appreciated – keeping a marriage together is sadly next to impossible in Hollywood and I commend her for being truthful…but (you know there’s always going to be a ‘but’ with me), it still saddens me that after never being open to the media about her relationship – those of us that maintain hope for relationship longevity are somewhat left feeling a wee bit disillusioned, they’re just not allowed to have problems!!

    I too have enormous respect for Gwen as a performer,songwriter,fashion designer and icon,and most especially as a truly wonderful and devoted mother and wife.But I honestly don’t see how anything has changed with Gwen-she has always been candid in interviews,the recent ELLE UK interview included(maybe just not to the excessive and often careless extent that other celebs are).And of course her songs have always been intensely personal windows into her life and relationships.I feel no dillusionment about Gwen’s comments to ELLE UK,only a great deal of respect for her refreshing honesty.
