Gwen Stefani is opening up about her abrupt divorce from Gavin Rossdale. Now that it’s finalized, I guess she can talk. She’s already let some of her music do the talking, but of course she’s getting more questions.
Gwen discussed how she came to write the song ‘Used To Love You.’
Things went down, I think it was February where my life just, ‘Whoa!’ It just changed. Before that, I couldn’t really write. I wanted to, but my life was just so … I don’t even know how to describe it.”
So things went south between Gwen and Gavin in February. From what she’s saying, it sounds like something happened suddenly.
When asked if her personal troubles were inspiring her creatively, Gwen said:
Everybody knows that I was married forever and now I’m not. Could you imagine what my life is like right now? It’s crazy!”
She said the chorus for ‘Used To Love You’ came to her:
the day after some crazy stuff had gone down, like, crazy stuff in my life. I’ve been writing stuff randomly, like, instead of going online and looking at stupid stuff, but being like, ‘I’m just going to write. This is how I’m going to heal. I need to write.’ And I went back in and found that lyric and then it ended up being the chorus of the song.”
Hmmm… Gwen said she’s adjusting to her post-divorce life.
My life feels so extreme right now. The Voice is so fun … this season is crazier because I feel like I know everybody so well and also because my life is crazy. I mean, my life basically blew up in my face and so now I’m like, in this new life and it’s pretty awesome, I have to say.”
She said she’s learning to enjoy herself, which included partying with ‘The Voice’ coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine for Halloween.
I was literally that party girl that you hear about when their life blows up and you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m going out! Watch me!’ We’re just trying to have fun, you know?”
It sounds like Gwen is coping with her divorce. She doesn’t sound like she’s sitting at home crying herself to sleep. Hey, if her music helps her heal, then why not use it?
