Girl was BORN with California cool in her bones!
One of music's sexiest, age-defying, super-talents Gwen Stefani consistently looks like she just stepped off a rock-star runway, but how much does Gwen actually CARE about the alluring Fame label?
Apparently, Gwen was never even vying for a spot in the FAMElympics!
"We didn't even do it because we were trying to make it. Now everybody wants to be famous. It doesn't even matter what you do. Let me tell you how that first record happened: My boyfriend had broken up with me and I was devastated, so I wrote all these songs. I didn't even know I could write. I was just a girl who was in love with this guy, then suddenly I'm a songwriter, and I've gotten you back so good. I went from being nothing, from being an ordinary, nerdy girl, to having power."
So take note those of you whose sole aspiration is being famous… most of the true icons, those who RULE the fame world, got that way through sincerity and passion for their CRAFT, not ’cause they like attention and easy money! That fame mistress is one tricky b*tch.
Ooo we are zooming around the room in excited anticipation for No Doubt's new album… whenever THAT will be!
