Biography

Anaheim, California, United States (1986 – present)

Gwen Renée Stefani (born October 3, 1969 in Anaheim, California, United States) is a singer-songwriter and fashion designer. Since 1986 she has fronted the band No Doubt, whose 1995 release Tragic Kingdom spawned the singles Just a Girl, Spiderwebs, and Don’t Speak and propelled them into stardom with sales of 16 million copies worldwide.

In 2004, Stefani released her first solo album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The album featured several collaborations with producers and other artists, including No Doubt bandmate Tony Kanal, Linda Perry, André 3000, Nellee Hooper, and The Neptunes. It was primarily inspired by and music of the 1980s, and emerged an international success with sales of over seven million copies. The third single Hollaback Girl became the first U.S. digital download to sell one million copies.

The debut album also drew attention to the Harajuku Girls, Stefani’s entourage of four Japanese backup dancers named for the fashionable suburb in Tokyo. Originally hired in 2004 for the album, the Girls continued to appear alongside Stefani, and are featured in these music videos: “What You Waiting For?”, “Rich Girl”, “Hollaback Girl”, “Luxurious”, “Crash”, “Wind It Up”, “The Sweet Escape”, and “Now That You Got It”.

Stefani’s second solo album The Sweet Escape was released December 5, 2006. Collaborating again with her on the project were Perry, The Neptunes, along with Akon and Tim Rice-Oxley of Keane, and producers Pharrell and Kanal. Despite mixed reviews of the album as a whole, the title track The Sweet Escape became an international success and earned Stefani a Grammy nomination, and remains the most successful song of her solo career.

    Está bem claro sim que essa volta da Gwen foi totalmente pela oportunidade que ela teve no The Voice e eu, assim como outros fãs, não veem problema nenhum nisso. Sim, eu também preferia um álbum do No Doubt, mas para os fãs já é uma alegria imensa presenciar esse retorno da Gwen.

    Dois singles, duas colaborações e uma soundtrack depois sabemos que ela está dando continuidade ao que talvez possa virar o terceiro álbum dela. Sobre qualidade e charts: 1) Se você odeia o que ela faz atualmente, você tem a simples opção de não escutar as canções novas e ir ouvir os dois primeiros álbuns maravilhosos dela 2) Se ela tá flopando ou sendo ofuscada, não tem importância alguma porque o que importa pros fãs é ela estar fazendo música nova. Eu pessoalmente iria preferir que o No Doubt tivesse lançado single na época do The Voice e estivesse com um novo álbum agora, mas a decisão tanto da Gwen quanto da banda foi diferente e eu como fã, apesar de não concordar com tudo que tá acontecendo, vou continuar apoiando minha banda e minha cantora favorita da forma que puder.

    Como eu odeio ver gente que não é fã querendo dar pitaco sobre a carreira dela! Vocês são burros ou o que? Até parece que a Gwen nunca havia dito que a carreira solo dela deveria ter tido apenas UM álbum de duração. Mas o sucesso do LAMB + alguns outros fatores principais impulsionaram a produção e lançamento do TSE. Gwen nunca abandonou o No Doubt e deixou isso claro durante os poucos anos que reinou como diva pop. Quando o No Doubt voltou pro hiatus e na era Push and Shove, a Gwen também deixou bem claro que Gwen solo já era, mas o No Doubt falhou a repetir o sucesso no comeback e o fato da Gwen ter sido chamada pra ser jurada pro The Voice + reencontro com o Pharrell fez com que houvesse uma oportunidade gigante pra Gwen fazer mais um álbum solo e conseguiram convencê-la a gravar coisas novas, mesmo ela não tendo certeza de qual seria o futuro do projeto.

    People don't know, but Gwen just back to her solo career just because of The Voice. And no, she don't wanted to go back. It happens! She is now working on her 3trd solo album and No Doubt album. Pharrell was a good helper for her comeback. LOL STF may be not her best song solo but is as good song. I love BDL and Shine, both sounds are amazing and perfect songs! She don't care much about the solo career. Gwen is just having fun this time. Everybody knows that she belongs and wants No Doubt; ;) [3]

    I hope that this "new stuff" is just a joke, as it's absolutely horrible. Not to mention the videos. #sorrynotsorry
