Gwen Stefani Addresses Whether Her New Song Is About Ex Gavin Rossdale

Gwen Stefani found herself in the hot seat when she appeared on the Today show on Tuesday with her fellow coaches from The Voice. At one point, Matt Lauer asked about the story behind her new song, "Used to Love You," which is rumored to be about her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale. "Your personal life has been in the headlines," Matt said. "Are fans misinterpreting something here, or is it all right there in front of us in terms of the song?"

Gwen seemed surprised by the question, saying, "Oh my god, put me on the spot. I'm like whoa, whoa . . . " She went on to say that she's "never put a record out" when she was going through things in real time, but she added, "I wrote that song, like, a couple weeks ago. And then I sat in front of a camera in a dressing room randomly — not making a video, just to do some video for the screens behind me. And then it went out, and it's the video and it's like all very real." Watch the clip above to see Gwen's response (around 3:22), and then see her emotional performance of the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
