Gwen Stefani says 2015 didn't go the way she wanted at ALL!
The 46-year-old told the radio DJ about how her crumbling marriage turned this year into a terrible one:
"I got a divorce, which was completely not in the plan at all. I don't know. For me, it surely wasn't. A shock. A horrible, crazy year and explosion in my life."
But, the songwriter confessed that music was able to help her cope with the devastating divorce, adding:
"At that time, I wanted to go in and write. I just wanted to be in my bed crying and do what you do when life falls apart . . . Anyways, I went to the studio, and I was convinced that I had to make something out of this."
"I think what happens is in life you go through so many different phases especially with success and like with art. You can get blocked. I think everything that had gone in my life in the last five years, it just got blocked."
But, she admitted that the overwhelming sadness was exactly what she needed to shake her writer's block:
"Every time I write a song, it's the most incredible feeling. I had written a bunch of songs, I was so proud of it. I couldn't believe it. For me, it was like I channeled God."
Well, we're really glad Gwen's job was able to get her through such a tough time! Ch-ch-check out her full interview (below)!
