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.
GOPer Collins battered for demand to postpone Trump impeachment so he can get caught up: ‘Collins doesn’t do his homework’
On Saturday, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), the senior Republican on the House Judiciary Committee made a demand to the Democrats that they postpone Monday's hearing on the impeachment of Donald Trump, saying he needed more time to digest a fifty-plus page report that Democrats released over the weekend.
After tweeting out his demand -- as well as issuing a statement -- the voluble Trump defenders was hammered on his own Twitter feed with commenters telling him do his job and read the report in the meantime.
After Collins tweeted, "Chairman Nadler has no choice but to postpone Monday’s hearing in the wake of a last-minute document transmission that shows just how far Democrats have gone to pervert basic fairness," he got buried in derision.
Trump’s damage to the federal government is driving voters to turn to more liberal candidates: report
According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's tenure has not resulted in voters becoming more conservative, and instead, he is driving them into the arms of more liberal and progressive candidates at the local level who are then using their newfound power to change Democratic policies at the national level.
Trump's negative influence is turning into a positive for those candidates -- particularly in the big cities.
"From New York City to Los Angeles, many of the nation’s biggest cities have turned even harder to the left under President Donald Trump, putting pressure on local officials to embrace the leading progressive presidential candidates — or withhold their endorsements entirely for fear of antagonizing newly energized activists," the report states. "It’s a drastic political shift in some places, where for decades entrenched party bosses crushed any signs of life on the left or tended to put the weight of big-city institutional support behind Democratic establishment-oriented candidates."
‘Not true’: Manic GOPer Mark Meadows shut down by CNN’s Bash for repeating lie about Ukraine
A fifteen-minute CNN interview with Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) wound down to an abrupt end on Sunday morning as the "State of the Union" host Dana Bash cut off the Trump defender's insistence there was no quid pro quo offer from the president to Ukraine's leadership, with the CNN host telling the GOP lawmaker, "That's not true. I don't want to debate about it."
In an interview where Meadows continued to rage about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter, Bash finally brought up Trump's phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that led to the impeachment inquiry.
Discussing the call where Trump asked for a favor, Meadows pushed back after she said Trump, "Allegedly held up aid and he said it in this phone call."
