Gwen Stefani: solo career was 'pretend me'
Gwen Stefani has admitted the woman that used to roll up to red carpet events surrounded by an entourage of Harajuku Girls circa 2004 was a "pretend version" of herself.
In an interview with Spanish Vogue (via Digital Spy), the star said she relates more deeply to her work with pop-rock group No Doubt than she does with her two solo albums Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and The Sweet Escape.
"I did the solo thing, but I felt like I was trying to play a character in a way, this Alice in Wonderland pretend version of myself. But this, being in No Doubt, is really who I am," she told the magazine. "Time kind of stops when you're in a band. It's this suspended childhood, and it's really awesome, that part of it."
She added: "But then when you have a family of your own, it forces you to go into the adult world a little bit more."
