Fans were shocked when Gwen Stefani announced her split from Gavin Rossdale back in Aug. 2015 and as it turns out, so what she! In a new interview, ‘The Voice’ judge opens up about her divorce and life after marriage, saying she felt as if her life ‘blew up in her face’ after the breakup. So sad!
Gwen Stefani, 45, is finally opening up about the details of her split with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. Speaking in a new interview with her fellow Voice star Carson Daly, the “Used To Love You” singer dished about her traumatic experience following the end of her marriage, and how she’s coped with having her life turned completely upside down!
“My life is so extreme right now,” Gwen revealed to Carson on 97.1 AMP Radio. “My life basically blew up in my face. And now I’m in this new life and it’s pretty awesome I have to say. I’m so inspired and being back on the show, and just being in a new place. Everything just feels new. I just feel inspired. I don’t know how else to describe it.”
“You talk about it: While shooting this show, you went through such a traumatic experience,” he noted, at which point Gwen immediately jumped in and joked: “I feel like I’m going to throw up right now.”
Unfortunately for Gwen, things only continued to get more intense from there as Carson asked about the singer’s recently finalized divorce, and whether it influenced any of her new singles. “You just said the D-word on the radio!” she joked in response. “Wow… does anybody have a bucket? This is like, way more intense that I thought it was gonna be. I don’t know. I’m just trying to explain it to everyone that this is crazy what’s happening to me. Everybody that hears a song, and I don’t have anything to hide. Everybody knows what my life was like before I was married. Could you imagine what my life is like now? It’s crazy!”
Unlike Taylor Swift, Gwen was not as eager to get back into the studio after her painful split. “On the way into the studio the first time, I didn’t want to go. I wanted to be in my bed, like crying,” she shared. “And I did, I cried all the way down to Santa Monica, driving to Santa Monica, and I was like, ‘What am I doing? Why am I doing this?'” Gwen later went on to describe the process of writing 19 songs (“Used To Love You” included) within 8 weeks as “very spiritual.”
Prior to the interview, Gwen was spotted partying with her fellow Voice coaches Blake Shelton, 39, and Adam Levine, 36, at Jared Leto‘s Halloween party. The No Doubt rocker dressed up as a bloody cowgirl and was spotted holding hands with Blake and later leaving the party with him, which just continues to fuel our speculations that the two are most definitely dating. Please, can someone make this happen already?!
