Gwen Stefani Covers 'Elle': 'I’m Very Vain'
Gorgeous Gwen Stefani is the cover girl for the May issue of Elle magazine.
Stefani, 41, dishes to the mag about her marriage to Gavin Rosdale, her appearance (yep, she’s vain), and whether the likes of Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Rihanna have styled themselves on her.
Juicy highlights below.
On her marriage to Gavin Rossdale:
“The first time we ever kissed was right around Valentine’s Day – we were in New Orleans on tour. So, yeah, I always think about that because it’s unbelievable that we’ve been able to stay together. I feel so proud of us – it’s one of my biggest achievements.”
On her appearance:
“I mean, I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual.”
On performing while pregnant:
“It was horrible. Certain songs would make me want to puke. You feel pretty gross when you are first pregnant. You don’t feel cute, you feel disgusting. You’re getting fat. It was hard.”
On pop music:
“When we were growing up, some of the hits were legendary ones that you hear your whole life. But certain songs, I don’t know if you’ll ever hear them again. Because that’s what that music is, like a guilty pleasure, it’s right at the moment. It’s like fashion – it’s now, then it’s gone.”
On style comparisons to Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Rihanna:
“Really? I don’t see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on. I see these girls as more going for the sex-symbol thing. I was more, in the band, like a tomboy. Of course, I think every girl is sexy, so there’s going to be a little of that. But I see a lot of younger artists going more toward the sexy thing.”
