Gwen Stefani may be happily in love now, but she hasn’t completely forgotten what it’s been to like to go through heartbreak.

In the holiday issue of Marie Claire, the songstress described her roller coaster of a love life as “totally crazy.”

After filing for divorce from Gavin Rossdale in 2015 and not much later coming together with her new beau Blake Shelton on The Voice, the momma of three shared:

“The whole thing has been crazy. I mean completely, totally crazy.”

And while she doesn’t bring up her ex, the 48-year-old does let herself gush a bit about her BF:

“He’s my best friend.”

The two enjoy plenty of time together on his ranch in Oklahoma with her kids, and as she describes it:

“It’s very tribal. Blake has a sister, she comes with her kids. We cook and get muddy and dirty. There are ATVs. Being a mother of three boys, it’s kind of the perfect place. Everything is real now, whereas before, things didn’t seem so real.”

It may all sound great now, but there was a time when she couldn’t understand why her love life wasn’t going right:

“For a long time, I could not understand why I’d had so much heartache in my life. I have parents who are still married and in love. I had such loving role models. I didn’t understand it.”

But she doesn’t think the heartache was for nothing:

“What I learned was that my heartbreak was supposed to happen, that it was my purpose to write about and share my story. I met at least 50 to 100 people before each show on my tour and got to hear that my truth and my story translated, and I feel very lucky and honored knowing that.”


And look where she is now!
