From Fox News:
Best-selling author , pickup artist and former celebrity journalist Neil Strauss has a new tell-all book about the secret life of celebrities he interviewed during his work as a pop culture expert for the New York Times and Rolling Stone.
While he may be known as a “pickup artist” following his 2005 New York Times Bestseller, “The Game: Penetrating the Society of Pickup Artists,” Strauss is releasing the refreshingly raw book “Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead” – comprised of dozens of candid and controversial interview transcripts with Hollywood’s hottest stars….
And despite her wild-child exterior, Strauss’s perception of “No Doubt” rocker Gwen Stefani was that of surprisingly traditional, wholesome young woman.
“You’ll meet my mom, and you couldn’t get more traditional. I was always a pretty passive person. I was a one-on-one person. I had my one best friend, and I didn’t have lots of girlfriends. I never have. I can still name all of my best friends: the three girls from growing up, my first boyfriend – who was the first guy I kissed – and then Tony (Kanal, fellow band mate and ex-boyfriend.) And that’s it,” Stefani told Strauss. “There’s not much before the band. I wasn’t doing drugs or having premarital sex or anything.”
