Gwen Stefani Quotes
"I think I've been able to fool a lot of people because I know I'm a dork. I'm a geek."
"I think everyone has gifts and everyone has talents. If you are successful at it, it feels really good but it never really penetrates completely. There are moments where I think that we made an amazing record and I'm so proud of it, but I don't wake up and go, "Wow, I'm amazing."
On gwenabees: "And they did it! It was cute. We were like awww a little pink family."
"Being in a band you can wear whatever you want - it's like an excuse for halloween everyday."
On high school: "I wasnt a cheerleader or in the choir. I didnt have loads of friends."-Gwen Stefani
"Don't shave, don't shower, don't care. Be really stinky and wear the same clothes every day. I think what makes a man sexy is not being self-aware. That's what's really cute to me."
"I'm just an Orange County girl from a loving family making music with my friends. It's not really that big of a deal."
