Gwen Stefani may be dating Blake Shelton, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t still grappling with the aftermath of her divorce from Gavin Rossdale. That makes sense: Gwen and Gavin were together for a long time (13 years- forever for Hollywood)! Of course she’s still processing it all.
Gwen said she’s having mixed feelings at the moment.
I wish it didn’t happen – I wish that all this wasn’t happening. But at the same time, I feel like it was part of my life journey.”
It sounds like Gwen’s personal life has always fueled her music, like her new song ‘Used To Love You.’
Now the singer listens to old songs in a different way.
Because of my situation right now, which we all know what I’m talking about, I feel like I go back and listen to a lot of that stuff and I’m, like, I get sick. You look at the songs and go, ‘That was a red flag. That was a moment where I was feeling just as bad as I feel today, and why did I keep it up?”
It sounds like she’s really looking back on their relationship and everything that happened. Yet Gwen said it’s not all sadness for her right now.
I’m in such a great place because I’ve been writing music. For me … that’s just everything that I love about being alive because I hadn’t been able to do it for so long.
“In my life, I’ve had two really bad heartbreaks and I’ve written some really incredible music out of it. I feel so lucky to have that, and to be able to share it.
“There’s always good things that come out of bad things.”
SO true. Whether she ultimately decides her marriage to Gavin was a mistake or not, she has three beautiful children from her marriage, and I’m sure she’ll always be grateful for them.
