I remember the days when No Doubt was one of the coolest bands around and Gwen Stefani was the epitome of cool. I was in high school, which means that that was about 10 years ago. Now she’s trying to make this desperate comeback with the band of long ago but they are doing it in a way that’s most unusual for has-been bands. They are going on tour but not making any new music. They’re fighting in the studio and they’re telling their fans about it! How much sense does that make?
Gwen has recently appeared on the cover of ELLE and she has given the inside scoop as to just what exactly is going on with this band – and it’s not flattering. According to Gwen, the other band mates just don’t know how to make good music and they’re all jealous of her. What?!? I don’t understand how you can just come out and say that about people that are in the same band as you. I wonder how they feel about that. From Pop Crunch,
“Gwen Stefani says getting back together with No Doubt after a nearly five year hiatus came with some complications. In a new interview with the July issue of Elle Magazine, the “Rich Girl” rocker admits there was some conflict when she got back together with the band.
Gwen says the band attempted to write a few new tracks before going on tour, but were unable to come up with new material. Tensions reached a boiling point when No Doubt stepped into the studio to record a cover of Adam And The Ants’ ’80s hit “Stand and Deliver;” Gwen and bass player Tony Kanal got into “a heated conversation” over the track.
“Everybody’s making it like there’s all this tension, you know, like I stepped away from the band and now they’re jealous of me, and look, maybe there is a little bit of that,” she explains.
“But some fights aren’t really what they seem,” Gwen quickly adds. “I think it was a little about the song, and a little about our coming back together. There was this little air bubble that needed to pop, you know?”
Was that little air bubble in her head? Seriously, why would they be jealous of her? Because she’s the lead singer and the face of the band? That didn’t seem to be a problem before. Or because there’s rumored to be serious trouble in her marriage? Something I wouldn’t be remotely jealous of. I don’t understand how getting back together can cause conflict and I really, really don’t understand why a band would decide to get back together when they couldn’t even come up with any new music! For God’s sakes, the New Kids even did better than that!
