‘Used to Love You’: Gwen Stefani channels divorce angst in raw video

Published

on

Gwen Stefani has opened up about her divorce from fellow rocker Gavin Rossdale in the form of music, releasing an emotional song entitled “Used to Love You.”

The No Doubt frontwoman on Tuesday put out a video for the song that consists solely of close-up footage of the singer looking forlorn and reflective.

To a light electronic beat, Stefani sings, “I don’t know why I cry / But I think it’s because I remembered for the first time since I hated you / That I used to love you.”

Stefani had debuted the song Saturday night at a concert in New York, telling the audience at the start of her encore that she would share a song about “pain and love and my real life.”

The song is notably more melancholy than the best-known songs of No Doubt, which built a wide following in the 1990s as it brought ska music into the mainstream.

Stefani, a California native, met Rossdale when the English singer and guitarist’s alternative rock band Bush was touring with No Doubt in the United States.

The couple married in 2002 and have been raising three children in Los Angeles.

The rockers had generally stayed out of the limelight except in 2004 when a paternity test revealed that Rossdale had a daughter with the British designer Pearl Lowe, with whom he had an earlier relationship.

The couple announced their divorce in a brief statement in August, saying they would remain “partners in marriage” to provide “a happy and healthy environment” for their children.

75 years ago: When atomic scientist Leo Szilard tried to halt dropping bombs over Japan

Published

As this troubled summer rolls along, and the world begins to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the creation, and use, of the first atomic bombs, many special, or especially tragic, days will draw special attention.  They will include July 16 (first test of the weapon in New Mexico), August 6 (bomb dropped over Hiroshima) and August 9 (over Nagasaki).   Surely far fewer in the media and elsewhere will mark another key date:  July 3.

On July 3, 1945, the great atomic scientist Leo Szilard finished a letter/petition that would become the strongest (virtually the only) real attempt at halting President Truman's march to using the atomic bomb--still almost two weeks from its first test at Trinity--against Japanese cities.

The ranger stopped the 25-year-old Lorentz for speeding on a dirt road near the park's Rattlesnake Springs area, and Mitchell's lapel video shows him ordering Lorentz to spread his feet and move closer to a railing.

Sessions has desperately tried to tout his Trumpist credentials on the campaign trail, even as the president has waged a campaign aimed at sabotaging his primary bid.
