In a recent interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop,Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk was asked about her collaboration with Gwen on the song ”Rich Girl”:
CBS: You have written songs for various artists including Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. Not to mention, you added the ‘Na na na na na na’ in Gwen Stefani’s smash hit, Rich Girl. Tell us what it was like collaborating with Gwen.
CK: “Gwen was not around during the collaboration. That was done with the now famous Kara Dioguardi! It was a very intense and inspired session, one that I was not really supposed to be in, except that Kara and I were hanging out a bit at the time, and I simply had an idea. But Jimmy Iovine was there, and he loved my parts.
