Gwen Stefani admits she is nearing ‘end of her musical journey’
The 'Hollaback Girl' singer hints that she is nearing the end of her music career but does this mean it opens the door for her and Blake to settle down?
Gwen Stefani feels that her musical career might be coming to an end but it looks like she is alright with that. “I always think it’s fine if I never do it again,” Gwen told ok! magazine, as reported by Hollywood Life.
However, things change when Gwen stands in front of her million fans and performs. “Then when I get on stage, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I love this!’ I love my music, I love being up there. It’s my gift — it’s what I’m here for. I’m obviously at the end of my journey of being a musician,” she continued.
Gwen is soon set to perform in Vegas and it looks like she believes it might just be when she decides to take a break from her music career. “Well, because of my age, and I’ve been doing it for thirty-something-years," she said. “A Las Vegas show is a way to express myself and do my whole catalog of music that defines every period in my life, all the crises and all the joys. Creatively, I couldn’t have done it sooner; I have to have all these songs.”
The singer went on to add that Blake Shelton has always been there for her supporting her career and decisions. “Obviously he’s my best friend, so I’m bouncing stuff off him all the time", Gwen said. “He gets me motivated. There are a bunch of songs about him in the show, that’s fun.” At the same time, she revealed the meaning behind her single, 'Just a girl'.
“If you really know me or saw how I grew up, I am 100 percent the same person I’ve always been,” she explained.
“When I wrote that song, I was 25, going to college, living at my parents’. I guess I wanted to say, ‘This is my DNA.’ I’m just a girl from Anaheim, CA and I’ve never been anything else… And for a song to be relevant 20 years later? … It still works!” Gwen and Blake met on the sets of The Voice where they both were judges on the reality singing contest.
Both Gwen and Blake had been through rough breakups and it was at the time they were nursing broken hearts that they found solace in each other, which helped them get over their pain.
Ultimately, their friendship developed into a romantic relationship and ever since then, the couple has been inseparable. In the past, Blake has admitted that marrying Gwen one day is on his mind.
Talking to CMT, Blake confessed, "I think about [marrying her]. I don’t think it’s anytime soon or anything. The more time that goes by, I guess, the closer you’d be getting to that."
At the same time, Gwen has also admitted that marriage has been on her mind. While appearing on Ellen DeGeneres show, Gwen opened up about thinking about getting married one day. “I do!” she said. “I think about it all the time! You know what? I love weddings, the kids love him. Everybody loves him. He’s lovable. I think about [getting married] all the time.”
