Who Is Gwen Stefani
This platinum blonde rocker ruled the ‘90s as the bouncy frontwoman of No Doubt. But Gwen Stefani’s come a long way from her Harajuku days to wife and mommy of two. Singer, style maven, dancer, head of family—Gwen proves that girls do rule.
American singer Gwen Stefani has a net worth of about $150 million dollars, as of 2020.
A Family That Plays Together…
Born and raised in California with her two brothers, Eric and Todd, and one sister, Jill, the arts were something that lived and breathed within the walls of the Stefani home. The punk chic style that Gwen so aptly epitomizes came from an early interest in fashion. Young Gwen was learning to sew from her mother before her older brother presented her with a different artistic opportunity. Eric was forming a band called No Doubt with his friend John Spence on lead vocals. Gwen was invited to sing back up for the group and before long she was even dating fellow bandmate Tony Kanal.
But things took a turn for the worse when Spence committed suicide in 1987. Gwen took over lead vocals for the band as they forged on without him, catching gigs in local clubs. After their devastating loss, the band finally saw some good fortune when they were signed to Interscope Records and released their first eponymous album in 1992. But the group didn’t ride the luck train for too long. The album failed to garner any industry attention, Gwen and Tony called it quits and Gwen’s brother said adios to the band he created.
More Than Just A Girl
Back to the basics and hitting the studio to hone their sound and image, the band came back three years later with Tragic Kingdom. The album deserved a genre in its own right, combining the worlds of ska, punk and pop into one smooth sound. The video for the album’s lead single ‘Just a Girl’ made Gwen the face of the band—a face and style that would become a trademark of the band’s irreverence toward the norm.
Five years later, the group followed the success of their previous album with Return of Saturn in 2000, which featured the single ‘Ex-Girlfriend.’ But with two chart-topping albums under her studded belt, Gwen began to waver from the band and pursue solo opportunities. She began collaborating with the likes of Eve and Moby.
But getting back to the group that made her a household name, in 2001 the band released Rock Steady for which they received two Grammys: one for ‘Hey Baby’ and one for ‘Underneath It All.’ But Gwen would add more than some trophies to her household—in 2002, the bubbly blonde married Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale in a white and pink John Galliano gown.
Two Little L.A.M.B.S
Two years later it was all about the music, baby, when she ventured out on her own to debut her first solo album, Love.Angel.Music.Baby (the name also inspired her clothing line L.A.M.B). The album was home to club anthems like ‘Rich Girl’ and ‘Hollaback Girl.’ But a budding solo music career and a fashion label wasn’t all Gwen was up to. In 2004, she made her film debut in the Leonardo DiCaprio flick The Aviator in which she played the sexy Jean Harlow. She was flying solo once again in 2006 with her next album The Sweet Escape from which the title track landed her a Grammy nom.
2006 also brought a different sort of trophy for the rocker couple when they welcomed their first son, Kingston James McGregor Rossdale. The mini rocker, who is known for his baby mohawk, got a brother, Zuma Nesta Rock, two years later. Taking time off from coming up with her kids’ unique names, Gwen got back in touch with the other men in her life. In 2009 she reunited with No Doubt for a national tour of the band’s classic hits.
This pop culture icon is a cement fixture in mainstream pop punk. A true entrepreneur vocally and in her business ventures, Gwen has set the high standard for female rockers
