Gwen Stefani was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Feb. 16. There, she talked music and her life, but also made an interesting revelation.
Kimmel asked Stefani her thoughts on her No Doubt bandmates enlisting a new lead singer for the band. No Doubt has been together for a while, and this week, it broke online that the band enlisted AFI frontman Davey Havok as a new lead singer.
"They're doing a side project," Gwen Stefani revealed. "They want to be in a punk band. It's not No Doubt. All the guys from No Doubt are doing a new band."
She went on to explain that the band is not looking to replace her, and they will still stay together. They were just searching for a new lead singer for a new punk band they are forming. Though she clarifies that the project is secret, she admits she heard the news from online.
Billboard was the first to report that Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrain Young, partnered with AFI frontman Davey Havok, to form a new band and start a new project, which is currently untitled.
Stefani also discussed her new song, "Make Me like You." She shot the music video live at the GRAMMYs during a commercial break. The song, according to the lead singer is about country singer Blake Shelton.
"I will admit, that song is about that guy," Stefani said, when asked if that was who it was about. "What's so great is that sometimes, tragedy can, you know -- if you really absorb it, you turn it into something beautiful."
She went on to discuss how her new album was about healing and taking all that negative energy in her life back out and turning it into something better, such as her new music.
So we can all breathe a sigh of relief! Gwen Stefani and No Doubt are still together; the band is just looking to start a new punk project on the side.
