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.

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do... www.globe-report.com

    @marcoant_w Concordo plenamente. Se eu não gosto de um single de um artista, não saio por aí fazendo choradinho. Reclamar, tudo bem, de vez em quando o artista precisa de feedback construtivo, nunca xingamento. Por favor!

    @multimoulinette o problema de muitos homens brasileiros que curtem música pop (homens gays, na sua maioria) é que eles pensam que as cantoras estão exclusivamente fazendo música ou fazendo escolhas para agradar ao público. Então, se não gostam de alguma coisa que a cantora faz eles partem pros xingamentos pesados. Misoginia e machismo reinam em fóruns de discussão musical e páginas de cantoras no last.fm :)

    That said, Spark The Fire is so fucking underrated. Try to dance to it 1st and then we talk again.

    FYI, even though Hollaback Girl is a great song it's not even close to be her best solo song.

    Biscate? Vocês Brasileiros são mesmo presunçosos. Mostrem mais respeito.
