Were I a songwriter, I would compose a symphony to express my one-sided affection for the platinum-blonde pop-star with the perennially crimson lips. But as it stands, I am a blogger. Therefore, I express my deepest emotions using those tools I know best: clumsy, self-deprecating humor and HTML tags. That’s my attempt at a segue into a blockquote from US Weekly Online about a recent in-depth interview Gwen Stefani recently did with Elle magazine.
On what her fans say: “People always say the same things. That I’m smaller than they expected and that I look better in real life. Which is kind of a back-handed compliment.”
On her marriage: “I mean, of course me and Gavin have problems, sometimes. Everyone does. We’ve been together for over 10 years. This is, like, the real deal.”
On 8-month-old son Kingston: “He’s pretty rad…Kingston is so chill. He goes with me everywhere, ’cause I’m still nursing. He’s been to every studio in L.A., New York, London. He lives up to his name – total Rasta boy. He gives me real balance. You can go 100 miles an hour, but you have to stop to hang out with him.”
Gwen, this blog is my love song to you. It’s no “Candle in the Wind,” but it’s all I know.
