Gwen Stefani is pretty in pink for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
The music veteran is currently gearing up for the release of her studio album with the band No Doubt, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have time to chop it up with the magazine about family, motherhood, fashion and more.
On balancing her career and motherhood:
“It’s, like, the real deal, dude. It’s superfun being a mom, but it’s hard too. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done—by far.”
On her love of makeup:
“I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more, and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”
On dealing with tabloids and rumors:
“That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn’t bother me. It’s like water off a duck’s back. None of that stuff matters. There’s something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay.”
