Gwen Stefani on CBS Sunday Morning (Video) Full Interview on ‘This Is What The Truth Feels Like’ Album

Here’s the full video and transcript of Gwen Stefani on CBS Sunday Morning. See the interview of the multi-Grammy winning No Doubt frontwoman and coach on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ conducted by Lee Cowan. The replay and more details are below.

The video is above. Gwen Stefani’s newly released third solo studio album is ‘This Is What The Truth Feels Like. It’s her first solo album in a decade.

In the interview with Lee Cowan, she opened up about her highly publicized divorce from Gavin Rossdale, frontman of the band Bush, after 13 years of marriage and three children and how it became the impetus for the album, and which, as she explained, enabled her to overcome her writer’s block.

Here’s an excerpt of the discussion:

When she walked back into the studio for the first time, “I said, ‘Listen, I don’t care about the charts, the hits, the style of music. I just want to tell the truth and I just have to get this out of me, whatever it is, and I want to write and I want it to be coming from me.'”

Her misery turned out to be her muse. Within a matter of weeks, she had written more lyrics than she knew what to do with.

“It was just the idea of sitting at a piano and doing it and letting my feelings come out, and it felt so good,” Stefani said. “It was like, ‘Wow, this is all I need to be doing right now; nothing else feels good but this.'”

“It’s like the flood gates just opened?” Cowan asked.

“It was just like the confidence came to me, and it just felt like the right thing to be doing. It was proactive as opposed to, like, just getting deeper into a hole.”

She also opened up about her new relationship with country music superstar and fellow coach on ‘The Voice’ Blake Shelton — who also went through a highly publicized divorce; from fellow country music superstar Miranda Lambert —

“In all of this craziness that happened, like unexpected horrible-ness, I found a friend that was going through literally the exact same thing as me,” Stefani said. “And that is a miracle, you know? And it just saved me so much, and I feel so grateful for that.”

And the song, ‘Make Me Like You,’ which she acknowledges is about him.

“Look, you can have me say it out loud, or you can just listen to the record,” she said. “I feel like I did everything right to, like, say I’m not going to let this ruin my life.”

The full transcript is here. The interview was broadcast originally on Sunday, March 20, 2016.
