Gwen Stefani has spoken candidly about her split from her husband of 13 years Gavin Rossdale.
The singer admits everything “blew up in her face”, but she’s managing to move past it and she’s enjoying being in a “new place”.
“My life is so extreme right now. My life basically blew up in my face. And now I’m in this new life, and it’s pretty awesome I have to say – I’m so inspired and being back on the show, and just being in a new place. Everything just feels new. I just feel inspired. I don’t know how else to describe it,” the 46-year-old told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio.
The mum-of-three also told the host she had attended Jared Leto’s Halloween bash with her fellow Voice judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
“I was literally that party girl that you hear about when their life blows up, and you’re like, ‘Yeah! I’m going out! Like, watch me!’”
She continued: “We’re just trying to have fun. You know?”
Gwen also revealed it was difficult for her to get back into work after the split, saying: “On the way into the studio the first time, I didn’t want to go. I wanted to be in my bed, like, crying.
“And I did, I cried all the way down to Santa Monica, driving to Santa Monica, and I was like, ‘What am I doing? Why am I doing this?'”
She went on to say that writing was very therapeutic and she just wants “to say the truth” in her new music.
“My value on myself is by songwriting… I think within 8 weeks I had 19 songs… I was like, ‘Listen all I wanna do is I just want to say the truth. I just want the truth to come out. I just want to be honest and real that represents where I’m at right now.’”
She previously said her heartbreaking new single Used to Love You is all about Gavinand that this is the first time she’s ever released a break-up song when she’s “actually going through things in real time”.
The couple – who have Kingston, nine, Zuma, seven, and Apollo, 19 months together – announced their divorce in August after 20 years together and nearly 13 years of marriage.
“While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment,” they said in a statement at the time.
