Gwen Stefani is having fun making music with her No Doubt bandmates again and she has no plans to release anymore solo music. The pop star says nothing’s better than making and performing music with her best friends. She also goes on to say her solo career felt like she was playing a role.
“There’s nothing that compares to being in a band with your best friends you’ve known all these years. Playing live is so automatic and so electric.
“That whole period when I got to do [solo] records, to me it was indulging my theatrical side, and getting to be really creative that way; like, do costumes, and costume changes; do music that was electronic and not have to worry about a drummer or anything else — songs that were never really meant to be taken seriously, just for fun. It was just a project I did that was very inspired, and it kind of got a little out of control, really. But there’s no place like home; we’re so comfortable together, we understand each other. It feels, like, normal. Whereas that [solo] period felt like I was trying to be something, and play a role, and pretend.”
I’m glad No Doubt is making music again, but I was also hoping that Gwen would also release more solo music. Bummer.
Do you think Gwen should release more music as a solo artist?!
