!! OMG, Gwen Stefani covers NYLON Magazine’s ‘Comeback Issue’ !!

Gwen is on the cover of the new NYLON ‘Comeback Issue, and is interviewed along with the new photoshoot by Domen & Van de Velde.

The 54-year-old singer-songwriter got candid about creative risk-taking, reuniting with No Doubt for Coachella, and what lies ahead. Find some interview highlights from the interview after the jump!


On songwriting:

“It’s like drugs. I mean, if I did drugs and they were really great or something—I don’t. But I’m saying: You want it so bad, you can’t stop once you know that feeling.”

On her scrapped reggae- and-ska influenced album:

“I got kind of lost. I got lost with not really having a band, not really having the people at the label that used to be my family, because so much time has passed.”

“A lot of the pop writers that I’d worked with started getting really different from the way I write. I was like, ‘Why are you counting syllables?’ Or they were trying so hard to go for a hit, where I’m like: ‘I’m not chasing that.’ A hit is the greatest thing in the world, but it has to be from nowhere.”

On her artistry:

“I just know that I was chosen. And it took me a long time to say that, and it still makes me cringe a little bit, because it sounds conceited. I really struggled hard at certain things. But I can do this one thing.”

On the foreshadowing of “The Sweet Escape” (2006):

“It makes me cry. I listen to the lyrics of that song, and it’s like: ‘Whoa!’ There was so much loaded fucking stuff in that song that was going on in my private life that it’s just crazy. It’s foreshadowing the future.”

On No Doubt‘s post-Coachella plans:

“Well, I don’t have a crystal ball. Most things have surprised me in life. One of the things I’ve learned is to be present in the moment and try to absorb what’s happening around me instead of looking ahead.”

  1. Is there a single fraction of these photos that is genuine and not doctored?
    Also, you have to go away for a while, before a comeback. Please?

    Every single song/album she’s released since 2006’s “The Sweet Escape” has been a MAJOR FLOP. She’s sounded like kids bop ever since

  3. For a second, I thought she was Madonna (with her updated face).
