It is so good to see Gwen Stefani with a great big smile on her face and really, how could she not? Since she began dating American country singer and television personality Blake Shelton, the pair have been snapped together looking happy, content and very much in love. After being married to Gavin Rossdale for 13 years, and putting up with his apparent cheating, spending a night with Kermit the frog would seem more appealing. But as luck would have it, or maybe fate, Gwen has met a man who shares not only her love for music, but also spending quality time with close friends and family.
After divorcing Gavin, Gwen went through a difficult time. “I think that when you go through what I went through, or what I’m still going through, you think you’re hopeless. You don’t know what’s going to happen,” Gwen revealed in an interview with Refinery29 in March. “You panic. It was a really super-unexpected gift to find a friend, somebody who happened to be going through the exact same thing as me, literally mirroring my experience. I don’t think it’s an accident that happened. It saved me.”
Watching the pair judge and advise the next generation of musical talent on the hit U.S show The Voice, it is easy to forget just how difficult a time Gwen has had. What we see is her professional side. Ok, she has fun flirting with her man, but it really isn’t the platform for getting ‘deep and meaningful’ about her personal life. So when I received the latest video of English comedian, James Cordens Carpool karaoke, with none other than Ms Stefani herself, I just knew I was going to find out a little more about the Hollerback girls wonderful new relationship.
Every single time James Corden delivers another “Carpool Karaoke” session on the Late Show, it makes my day. James has sang songs and talked about life, love and all matters of fun stuff to such international performers as Mariah Carey, Sia, Adele and Jennifer Lopez. But today his co driver is Gwen, and in the clip above, she talks about love, heartache and how much Blake inspired her new album. Oh and just when you think it can’t get any better, James and Gwen pick up a few more passengers. You know, offering a helping hand and all 🙂 Who am I talking about? You will just have to watch it and find out. Listen to the clip and hear Gwen talk about love life and music with James – and guests 😉 Enjoy…
