08 Jun Gwen Stefani On The Cover Of Elle Magazine July 2009
Gwen Stefani talks ‘No Doubt’ to Elle Magazine.
Once Ska turned pop singer admits to some conflict when she got back together with her band.
“Everybody’s making it like there’s all this tension, you know, like I stepped away from the band and now they’re jealous of me, and look, maybe there is a little bit of that,” she says. The band attempted to write a new record before going on tour, but were unable to come up with new material. Things came to a head one day when they were recording a cover of Adam and the Ants’ “Stand and Deliver.” She and bass player Tony Kanal got into “a heated conversation” over the track.
“But some fights aren’t really what they seem,” Gwen says. “I think it was a little about the song, and a little about our coming back together. There was this little air bubble that needed to pop, you know?”
The new issue of Elle is on stands June 15th.
