No Doubt's Gwen Stefani is the cover girl for the May issue of Elle magazine. In the magazine, she discusses performing while pregnant, "It was horrible," and life with her husband, Gavin Rossdale.
On writing hits: “I do! Why wouldn’t you want that many people listening to the songs that you wrote? There’s no way to go back after you have had it. So the intentions of even the solo records were always about trying to write those guilty-pleasure albums that just get in your head and you can’t get out. I’m not cool, I’m not into the B-sides. Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?”
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.”
And what does she think of people saying Lady Gaga and Katy Perry copy her? “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.”
The Women In Music issue also features Robyn, Florence Welch, Adele, Nicki Minaj, Willow Smith and Jennifer Hudson.

The Rossdales, and their nanny, enjoyed a day out at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Kingston, though, seems to be channeling his inner old lady here, with what I hope is a faux fur vest. Seriously, what is that kid wearing?
Umm...nice baby stroller, Kingston. Sigh. You know, he's a trail-blazer, really. Bleached hair, old-biddy fur and a stroller. You know your kids will be rocking this entire look in six months. Don't lie.
Gwen, as always, looks fabulous. (Can you believe she's 41?!) Gavin, as always, looks a little crabby.
Gavin Rossdale took his little darlings to the premiere of the new animated feature, Gnomeo and Juliet. Kingston seemed to have an attitude. I would too, if I was forced to watch something called Gnomeo and Juliet. Zuma doesn't looked phased at all, does he know where he is?
I think the matching sunglasses, even though they are Ferrari and hella expensive, are cute. Now if only Kingston could learn to keep his tongue in his mouth.
In a new interview with Details magazine, Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale opens up about his relationship with wife, Gwen Stefani and his past relationship with singer Marilyn.
On when he met Gwen, Gavin says:
"I threw a party in New Orleans just as an excuse to hang out with her. We drank a bunch of hurricanes and went around the French Quarter. We had our first kiss that night, just walking around, being careful to step over the puddles of pee. The next day we had that sort of cute, embarrassed, sober meet-up."
On being a dad to toddlers and a 21 one year old:
"With the boys it's traditional: I'm all they know, and I'm with them all the time. With Daisy, I don't know her in that context. The way I nurture those boys, I never got a chance with Daisy. I love my connection with her, but I don't have any say in who she is. With the boys it's my job to correct them and shape them. With Daisy, I just have to be respectful. I suppose it's more like a friendship."
For those of you that didn't know, Gavin had a long term relationship that he calls a "fling" while he was a teenager. In his 1995 autobiography, Boy George talked about the affair Gavin had with cross dressing performer Peter Robinson, known as Marilyn. Gavin denied it for years, until now.
He told Details:
"I've never wanted to appear closed about it. It's not something I've talked about really because it's always been in the glare of a tabloid world. It's just one of those things: Move on. When you're 17, Jesus Christ. I don't think there's anything strange about any form of—you're learning about life. It's a part of growing up. That's it. No more, no less."
Okay, well he sort of admits to it.
Marilyn responded to In Touch magazine saying,
"Gavin and Gwen are perfect for each other, but he was the love of my life."
Adding that he dated Gavin for five years in the early '80s. He also commented on his Facebook page with,
"I think it's really hypocritical that Gavin can do an interview about me, yet me doing one about him is wrong!"
I wonder how much of this Gwen knew about. She didn't know anything about Daisy Lowe being his daughter. I do like Gwen and Gavin together, and if they've survived alleged cheating then they can get over this.
I know, right? Two mentions of Courtney Love in as many days? Holla!!
Oh, and speaking of "Hollaback Girl"! Courtney blabbed to Howard Stern on SiriusXM Radio today that she had a big, sloppy affair with Gavin Rossdale. Yeah, Gwen Stefani's wife husband.
"On the Howard Stern show yesterday, Courtney Love didn't just reignite her fight with Billy Corgan - she also claimed that Gavin Rossdale cheated on Gwen Stefani with her.
Courtney said that she and Gavin had an eight-month affair and she had a "vision of marrying Gavin Rossdale one time... We were like, 'Let's go spend our rock star money.'"
Courtney described Gavin as "lovely" and said she knew that he was with Gwen.
"Everyone gave me so much s--- because Gavin sounded like a lot like Kurt...." she said. "But man, he was such an Adonis in his day! He got good in bed ... something happened. Maybe Gwen taught him, for all I know."
"You mean he was having sex with you while he was with her?" Stern asked.
"Everyone ... yeah ... and a few other people," Courtney said. "We didn't have a lot of pressure on each other, but we did like each other quite a bit."
Oh, Courtney. I've always loved your crazy ass. I can't help it. AND I have "Skinny Little Bitch" stuck in my head!
