Ste­fani, Rossdale never worked on mu­sic to­gether

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Gwen Ste­fani says she was ner­vous about work­ing with one per­son in par­tic­u­lar when she started on The Voice as a pan­elist: her hus­band. Gavin Rossdale was the “coach” brought in to give ad­vice to mem­bers of Ste­fani’s team of as­pir­ing singers on the NBC mu­sic com­pe­ti­tion show, which starts its new sea­son on Sept. 22. Rossdale was the lead singer of the Bri­tish rock band Bush. “It was just awk­ward,” she said. “We’ve only col­lab­o­rated on mak­ing ba­bies.” There are three of those, the lat­est born this spring. Ste­fani, a solo artist and lead singer of the band No Doubt, said that not only had she and Rossdale never worked to­gether on a mu­sic project, they weren’t even fans of each other’s mu­sic be­fore get­ting to know each other. Ste­fani, 44, said she wor­ried what would hap­pen if they fought about what ad­vice to give a par­tic­u­lar con­tes­tant. But she said it didn’t hap­pen. “It was just so fun,” she said. “It was right at the be­gin­ning of the show and I was just get­ting my feet wet, so hav­ing him there was kind of rad.”
