Gwen Stefani says she’s changed since her rocker days with No Doubt.
“Now I’m a wife and a mother of two. It’s a really different role,” Gwen told the July issue of Elle. Kingston is 3, and baby Zuma is 9-months-old.
“I always referred to No Doubt as a marriage, because that’s what it’s like to be together for so long and go through what we’ve been through,” said Gwen – who wed Gavin Rossdale in 2002. “I can’t really have that relationship with them anymore. My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now. That’s a huge, huge thing.”
Gwen – who’s currently on tour with No Doubt – shared that she struggles with songwriting while raising her kids.
“It’s one thing when you have an infant, but when you have this two-or three-year-old going, ‘Mommy, what’s the deal?’ It’s harder. Kingston’s whole thing is, ‘I need, I need.’ He is insane right now.
“We’re just hoping for the best and that he’s not going to turn out to be a freak, but we’ll see,” she continued.
Gwen said she “might never be able to write another song. Who knows? I did try. So here we are, going on a tour without a new record.”
She’s not too worked up about it.
“But, then I think, what I’ve gone through is major, right? I got married and had two human beings come out of my body — plus two albums and two clothing lines that were born during the same period. I’m still nursing! I’m a little sucked dry.
“Like maybe once I sleep through the night, maybe I’ll be able to write a song. That’s where I’m at,” she said.
