Gwen Stefani On Becoming A True Brit
The ‘Hollaback Girl’ hit-maker talks about her love for the UK...
Pop star Gwen Stefani has said that she finds it strange that she has ended up married to a Brit, Gavin Rossdale, and living in the UK, after having spent her teenage years admiring English music.
She told Elle UK: "It's really weird becoming a part of British culture, because I was always such a fan. When I discovered music, it was all about the UK: Madness, The Specials, UB40, Depeche Mode, The Cure and all of that 1980s music I worship.
"The music they wrote was so English, it was about their world. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. When you grow up in [California's] Orange County, you never think you'll go there [England]. The fact that I ended up with this English guy is really weird."
