Gwen Stefani found about the guys of New Doubt forming a new punk band when everyone else did.
During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Feb. 16), Kimmel asked Gwen her thoughts on her bandmates enlisting a new lead singer for the band. She clarified their project is separate from No Doubt, but admits she heard about it on the Internet. Billboard reports the band’s Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young partnered up with AFI frontman Davey Havok to form an entirely new, so-far-unnamed project.
“They’re doing a side project,” Gwen said. “They wanna be in a punk band. It’s not No Doubt. All the guys from No Doubt are doing a new band.”
Stefani also admits her new song "Make Me Like You," which she recently shot a music video for live at the GRAMMYs during a commercial break, is about Blake Shelton. “I will admit, that song is about that guy,” Gwen said when asked if the song is about Shelton. “What’s so great is that sometimes tragedy can, you know — if you really absorb it, you can turn it into something beautiful,” she explained. “This whole album is really about trying to take something that was awful and just, I don’t know — healing from it and turning it into something beautiful.”
