The Secret of Being Happy
Icon of our times Gwen Stefani spills the goss on what makes her feel so freaking fabulous. We’re listening!
Writing her first album: My boyfriend had broken up with me and I was so devastated,so I wrote all these songs. I didn’t even know I could write. I just just a girl who was in love with this guy,then suddenly I’m a songwriter,and I’ve gotten him back,so that was good. I went from being nothing,from being an ordinary,nerdy girl,to having power.
Those red lips: I remember sitting in my ghetto,beat-up Honda Prelude,putting on that lipstick in the mirror,and being like,’’Uh-oh,I like that. That’s the shit right there.’’ I never stopped after that.
Her marriage: I’ve been with Gavin for 14 years and that’s a huge accomplishment. I feel so proud of that-it hasn’t been the easiest journey.
Getting ready to rock: Actually going out,I wear makeup every day. I wear it for Gavin and I don’t feel energized until I put it on.
Being busy: There’s never really any downtime,but if there is,I feel like panicking a little bit or trying to plan the next thing. Which is weird,because I always thought I was kind of lazy. In my mind,all I really want is pizza in bed.
Beneath the sheets: I love the bed. It’s that moment in bed,that cuddle-watching a movie or kind of pretending you’re watching a movie. The bed is like….there’s nothing else.
Body talk: I really hate talking about my body;it’s really ridiculous. Here’s the thing: There is no secret to being in shape;you just have to eat healthy,work out lots and torture yourself!
