Gwen Stefani Covers InStyle [December ’15]
Gwen Stefani is the December covergirl for InStyle magazine.
The singer is currently mingling, but in her interview with the magazine, Stefani opens up about how hard it was to balance her career and family.
She said, “I didn’t tour at all. But I did record the No Doubt album, which was super hard. I was torn the whole time. Every day I would take the kids to school, drive to Santa Monica, work on the album, and then I’d think, ‘Oh my god, if I don’t leave by 2:30, I’m not gonna get home in time for dinner.’ And Gavin being on tour… I’m not gonna say there weren’t some incredible moments making that album. But it was a lot of knocking my head against the wall. A lot of struggle.”
Stefani went on to reveal how co-worker Pharrell Williams helped her. She revealed, “He helped me with a lot of stuff. I was in a closed-off period before that – I couldn’t write, and I didn’t feel confident. There were hard times before the baby, personally, that were just not good. And then having Apollo, and being on the show, and being refreshed: It was just like, ‘Whoa!’ I’m in a really positive place now.”
