Gwen Stefani is on the path to identifying herself in an all-new light. At least, that’s what her new single seems to suggest.
Stefani Looks to Reinvent
With her single, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself,” Stefani is making a comeback as an individual artist. In the past, she was the lead vocalist of the band No Doubt, who was known for singles like “Just a Girl,” “Spiderwebs,” and “Don’t Speak.”
Stefani has been a solo artist since 2004. She has released four solo albums (one was a Christmas album) her upcoming one will be the fifth. During her chart-topping career as a solo pop artist, Stefani released highly recognizable hits like “Hollaback Girl,” “Cool,” and “The Sweet Escape.”
Her last full-release was in 2016. Since then, Stefani feels like enough has changed about her that she needs to reintroduce what she has to offer the music world.
As Stefani puts it, this isn’t a comeback or a reinvention, but instead, she’s “recycling.”
“Go ahead and help yourself, me again in your ear / Binge on my music for days ’cause I’ve been here for years / Not a comeback (oh), I’m recycling me / It’s not a comeback (oh), you feel that new energy.”
Let Her Reintroduce Herself
On a segment with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Stefani answered 50 rapid-fire questions about herself.
Fallon claimed to honor her new single, she had to let people know some basic information about herself.
For a quick rundown, Stefani would be a solid friend because she’d tell you if you had food in your teeth, will reply with just “K” to a text, will support you in thinking guacamole should not be extra, and won’t step foot in a hot tub because they’re “gross.”
As for her past, her first job was at Dairy Queen where she messed up on purpose to get free ice cream. She was not behind the name No Doubt and she has done vocals for Sublime.
Of course, the mention of her soon-to-be-husband Blake Shelton just had to slip in there. When it comes to reintroduction, Shelton has become a huge factor in her life. The two are currently planning their wedding and will have it whenever it is safe to do so.
She admitted to thinking mullets were making a comeback (no one forgets that Shelton rocked a mullet early in his career as well as in quarantine). She also said that she is beyond excited by her first “The Voice” victory as a coach. More so, she was excited to beat Blake Shelton.
Fallon also asked the question, “Do you believe in Big Foot?” to which she replied, “Blake? Um, yes.”
We’re not sure why she thinks her fiancé is Big Foot, but all possibilities are being kept open.
Gwen Stefani as an Actress
While many of the questions were meant to just be funny, they were also a serious reminder of parts of Stefani’s career.
One important mention was her small role in the movie “The Aviator” in 2004. This biographical drama depicted the career of director and aviator, Howard Hughes. His career spanned from the 1920s to the mid-1940s.
It had huge Hollywood names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, and Gwen Stefani herself.
She played Jean Harlow, the woman behind the first platinum blonde craze in this Martin Scorsese film.
The singer has recently said that becoming more involved in the film industry is an interest of hers. She has been auditioning for several Hollywood roles. Her most recent role was as DJ Suki in “Trolls” in 2016.
