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 fronts the band No Doubt, whose 1995 release Tragic Kingdom - which spawned the singles Just a Girl, Spiderwebs, and Don’t Speak - 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”.

    And @CureVaNiNawl -- you're disgusting. People like you make me wish so badly that there were a "report" button, or at least a down vote button, on this website.

    And really, are we calling songs from 2004 her "old hits"? Because Gwen has had a fulfilling music career since 1987.

    I don't understand the comment from bander_az and the rest. For one, it contradicts itself -- how can it not be like her "old hits" and yet sound "more like a No Doubt song"? I mean, seriously. It makes no sense. Gwen made both songs. They're both "Gwen-ish" because she made both of them. Personally, I don't love either of them that much yet, but I might prefer Spark the Fire at this particular moment.

    Lol @ the comments below. I've been a Gwen Stefani and No Doubt fan for all my live, but (for now) I prefer "Baby Don't Lie". It has nothing to do with "getting her", it's just an opinion. "Spark the Fire" was a bit meh at the beginning for me, but it is a grower though.

    If you like Baby Don't Lie better than Spark the Fire, you just don't get her or don't know any of her old hits. Baby Don't Lie is a good song, but is kinda generic and sound much more like a No Doubt song. Spark the Fire is totally Gwen-ish. [5]

    Too bad Spark The Fire didn't connect with the audience. Anyway, let's hope she doesn't take too long to release the third solo album!

    Spark the Fire faria mais sucesso se fosse lançado nos anos 2000.

    I am genuinely surprised the majority of fans are unhappy with her new stuff. I personally love "Baby Don't Lie" + "Spark The Fire". Even "Together" on Calvin Harris' album is great. [6]

    Both Spark the Fire and Baby Don't Lie don't sound like the REAL GWEN, they just sound commercial songs made just to earn money. Baby Don't Lie I still can listen to, but Spark The Fire sucks!
