Gwen Stefani Returns

After her failed romp with the re-united 90's ska/pop band No Doubt, Gwen Stefani will once again return as new opportunities have hollered back. The blonde OC white gal will debut this fall as the newest femme fetale on high rated TV show, The Voice. In an interview with Elle magazine the 44 year old mother of 3 talks about all the new change ahead of her that has naturally fallen into place.

You have a lot of projects going on, between the lingerie collaboration, a new baby, and now your role on The Voice. Is it true that you and co-host Adam Levine might be working on some new music together?

I just met Adam and we are talking about collaborating and getting into the next phase. I didn’t know I was going to be doing The Voice. I literally had the baby and then got a call and then suddenly, I was doing it. I didn’t really know what was next. Now, all of a sudden, I am doing The Voice, my son is going into kindergarten, and I am going to be working on some new music. It’s all very exciting.

Pharrell is also a co-host on the show. What’s it like working with him again?

I was freaked out. I know Pharrell as a producer and in a different role. I am a huge fan and when I am around him, I like don’t know how to describe it, my heart sort of flutters a little bit. I have known him for a long time and we have a lot of history together. He is so inspiring, talented, and humble and the list goes on. He is unbelievable really. Over the years, he has gotten even more deep and special because he has matured. As for Blake, I think I might be his number one fan. I don’t even know him though, I have only been on the set with them for like a week. The version you get of Blake and Adam on TV—I get the R-rated version. They are so funny and have such an amazing chemistry. It’s brand new and I am just getting my toes wet.

Where’s music going these days, do you think?

I think it’s an exciting time in music. It’s inspiring to be in the position of coach, which is something I have never done before. I am hearing a 15-year-old boy who had all these hits on YouTube saying that’s how he became famous—that’s not what we did. We asked our dad for $5, rented a mic and went to the garage. You can be nobody but become someone thanks to the Internet. I think that’s exciting.

What can we expect from your new music?

As for me, I don’t know what is happening next musically, but I know the way I am going to do it is different. I have already started on it. I feel inspired that I went on The Voice and did "Hollaback Girl," which is such an old song, and it went back on the charts the next day. It made me feel so happy and made me want to do new music. It made me think that maybe people might want to hear it.

Getting back to fashion, I hear you reached out to HankyPanky about working with them. What drew you to the brand?

Yes, after doing L.A.M.B for so long, there’s so many different categories I could do. Working with someone that already has that expertise is kind of a no-brainer. I am a big fan of the brand and that’s what I’ve worn before. I added my signature prints and things that represent me. They know what works and what doesn’t work.

What do you look for in lingerie?

I go through different phases. Right now, I am nursing so it’s about how can I get to these boobs the fastest. I am really just happy to be back into my HankyPankys again and to have my body back (it’s still a work in progress though). I had phases where I was really into neon and I was like, ‘If I’m going to wear this, it might as well be neon.’ But at the end of the day, it’s about comfort. If you feel uncomfortable it’s almost not worth it.

Will we ever see L.A.M.B return to New York Fashion Week?

Interesting you should ask, I am going to do some sort of presentation or show this September. The only reason I haven’t lately is because it falls when my kids go back to school and I was like, ‘Oh, I guess I will go to NYFW and miss my kid’s first day of kindergarten.’ No. This year it falls on a different week so I can be in both places.

L.A.M.B. x HankyPanky, $23 to $86, will be available for purchase at later this month.

ItsNotYouItsMe Album Spin - John Legend

John Legend has returned with his fourth album entitled "In The Future" and let me tell you this kiddas it is injected with all the soulful melodies and rhythms weve now come to expect. I anoint Mr.Legend the new King of Soul/Pop.

Hes not only a Singer/Songwriter/Musician/Producer/Entrepreneur but he's the musique industry's truest skilled artist. Covering everything from Bobby Caldwell's "Open Your Eyes," to collaborating with Q-Tip on the stellar tune "Tomorrow," Legend shows no sign of stopping especially taking the torch on the subject matter of love.

Without further ado kiddas, dig out all of my favorite tunes off "In The Future!"
