OK, Gwen Stefani, let’s get real here. If, during the course of your divorce from Gavin Rossdale, you release a new song called “Used to Love You” and go out to promote it, you can’t act all surprised when someone asks you if the song is about, you know, Gavin Rossdale. But that’s exactly what she did this week at the “Today” show.
“Oh my god! Put me on the spot!” a visibly uncomfortable Stefani says when probed about the Rossdale connection. “I’m like, ‘Whoa, whoa.'” I’m sure you are, but still. What did you think was going to happen? Then she offered, “What I’ll say about that is that I’ve never put a record out where I’m actually going through things in real time.I wrote that song, like, a couple weeks ago, and then I sat in front of a camera in a dressing room randomly not making a video, just to do some video for the screens behind me, and then it went out and it’s the video and it’s like all very real.”
So … yes?
