I guess this could go under #womancrushwednesday! Time to confess! I am obsessed with someone right now! Not in creepy stalker way but in a happy, in awe way. Gwen Stefani! When I found out she was going to be a new coach on The Voice I was ecstatic!! So then I started following her (and No Doubt) on Instagram and I became more obsessed.
I have loved No Doubt and her music for a long time!! She is from Orange County. I am from Orange County. I was born and raised in the next town over from her hometown of Anaheim. Our high schools were football rivals. She went to the college I went to. So like I told my hubby last week she should be my friend! He gave me a side eye and said “ya you should go to her house and tell her that!” Yes he’s hilarious . . .
I also love her style and her clothing lines. I just wish I could afford it! I will be on the hunt to get something fabulous and at a great price!!
I have seen her perform twice. The first time was at all day concert in Irvine, CA put on by the best radio station I listened to growing – KROQ. It was called the Weenie Roast and they still have it now. No Doubt performed and her (future) husband Gavin Rossadale’s band Bush performed also. So cute!! The second time I saw Gwen perform was on her own and my sister took me for my birthday to the Honda Center in Anaheim and as she was playing in front of her hometown it was AWESOME!
This past weekend she performed at the Global Citizens festival in the Central Park in NY. It was on TV and after grabbing some lunch at running some errands we got home and put the TV on just as No Doubt started their set. It was fate =)
Now I find out No Doubt will be in Las Vegas in May performing at the Rock in Rio festival with other bands so now I have to look into that!
So lets just say that I will be watching every episode of The Voice and listening to Gwen on repeat.
Do you have a healthy happy obsession with someone? Do tell!!
