Gwen Stefani opens up about the way in which she saved my very own life” following a divorce from Gavin Rossdalen.
At the time her husband had been accused of dishonest on her with their nanny and shortly thereafter, Stefani launched the music This Is What the Truth Feels Like in reminiscence of the connection she misplaced.
During the time of her interview Stefani was quoted saying, “It was really a life-saver record for me. It wasn’t until I had to go through the worst tragedy that it really opened up a channel for me to be like, ‘God gave me a gift. I’m going to use it now. Because if I don’t, I’m going to die’.”
The singer additionally added that after she “scraped myself off the floor and went into the studio” she discovered Blake Shelton and the duo started releasing music like Nobody But You, Happy Anywhere, Go Ahead and Break My Heart, and You Make It Feel Like Christmas.”
During that point, “My life was falling apart. [Writing the 2016 album] wasn’t to do with anything other than saving my own life. That’s a completely different place to be. Then halfway through [recording], I fall in love with this cowboy guy — like, what the hell?”
“I was on tour with Blake — we were actually sitting on the bus when everything started to be cancelled. We went straight to Oklahoma and lived on a ranch, in a cabin for 100 days.”
