Gwen Stefani landed on the cover of Elle's May Women in Music issue. The singer is currently working on her seventh album with No Doubt and she also has her hands full with her sweet sons. Jennifer Hudson, who has her own adorable little guy, Willow Smith, Adele, and Florence Welch are some of the other artists featured in the magazine along with Aretha Franklin, Nicki Minaj and Feist. All the ladies chatted with Elle about their work, though Gwen got personal and touched on her husband, Gavin Rossdale, her appearance, and pregnancy. Here's more:
- Gwen on Gavin: “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.”
- Gwen on her appearance: “I mean, I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual."
- Gwen on performing while pregnant: “It was horrible. Certain songs would make me want to puke. You feel pretty gross when you are first pregnant. You don’t feel cute, you feel disgusting. You’re getting fat. It was hard.”
- Jennifer on the changes in her life: “My surroundings and my lifestyle are different, and it’s like, what part of Jennifer is the same as 10 years ago? The only thing I have to hold on to is my voice.”
