Elle magazine is celebrating women in music this month, and Gwen Stefani is their #1 "Gold Dust Woman."
The mag asked her questions on everything from sexy hubby Gavin, to belting out tunes on tour several months pregnant.
The No Doubt singer dished on her marriage to Rossdale: â€œThe first time we ever kissed was right around Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€”we were in New Orleans on tour. So, yeah, I always think about that because itâ€™s unbelievable that weâ€™ve been able to stay together. I feel so proud of usâ€”itâ€™s one of my biggest achievements.â€
We're so used to seeing Stefani baring her perfectly toned abs, it's hard to believe she ever had a bun in the oven. The singer said of performing pregnant: â€œIt was horrible. Certain songs would make me want to puke. You feel pretty gross when you are first pregnant. You donâ€™t feel cute, you feel disgusting. Youâ€™re getting fat. It was hard. I mean, Iâ€™m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual."
Gwen Vain Stefani ... hmm ... has a certain ring to it!
Of Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry, Stefani said she doesn't understand the comparisons: "I donâ€™t see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on. I see these girls as more going for the sex-symbol thing. I was more, in the band, like a tomboy. Of course, I think every girl is sexy, so thereâ€™s going to be a little of that. But I see a lot of younger artists going more toward the sexy thing."
