At least she feels comfortable enough to be so honest with us!
Gwen Stefani has been making headlines recently due to her breakup with Gavin Rossdale and subsequent rumors about a relationship with Blake Shelton.
And while the No Doubt singer has already addressed her connection with her fellow The Voice coach, Gwen wants the focus to be back on her music… or lack thereof, rather.

We found it a bit odd last year when the mother-of-three released both Baby Don't Lie and Spark the Fire as singles without ever announcing her third studio album.
Well, it turns out that's because Gwen decided to scrap the entire thing because she wasn't liking where it was going:
"It didn't feel right. I didn't feel fulfilled. That record with Benny [Blanco] was done that way because I had just given birth and had just started on The Voice and felt like I should do something in music, but what was I going to do? There wasn't enough time. So I tried to make a record where I was just kind of involved — which is how a lot of people do it, but it didn't work for me."
Luckily for her fans, however, Gwen has already written more than enough songs to fill another new album, so it's only a matter of time until we get more music from the icon!

And speaking of new music… the 46-year-old also addressed her writing process for her latest ballad Used to Love You in a recent interview, saying:
"I needed to go through what I needed to go through to write the record that I needed to write. There was a lot of prayer and meditating in the sense of trying to be open and grateful with this record. These songs are really natural — they're from not worrying about what happened or what's going to happen but about living in the moment, from trying to be present and trying to feel."
We're still really saddened by Gwen & Gavin's breakup, but we're sure they know what's best for their family.
