Gwen Stefani shrugs off radiation scare Music
By Victoria Ahearn The Canadian Press
Gwen Stefani received some jolting news this week while in Toronto to promote her sophomore solo album, 'The Sweet Escape,' due in stores next Tuesday.
The pop superstar and her baby arrived in the city from the U.K. on a British Airways jet Tuesday, and later learned that traces of radiation that recently killed a former Russian spy had been found in some of the airline's jets.
'We might have radiation too,' Stefani, 37, said with a slight grin when asked about the revelation in an interview Thursday, her last day in the city. 'No, I'm just kidding. I hope not.'
It's not the first time the front woman for ska-punk outfit No Doubt, known for her signature red lipstick and platinum-blond hair, has faced drama while trying to visit fans in Canada.
Last winter, one of the production equipment buses for her Harajuku Lovers solo tour rolled over three times while on its way to Canada. Stefani was four months pregnant at the time.
The driver was OK, said Stefani, but they couldn't salvage much of the gear.
'I was literally on the bus going, 'What are we going to do? Half of our equipment's in the snow,' ' a flawless-looking Stefani said in a chair in a hotel room while her six-month-old son, Kingston, was being watched by a nanny in a bedroom nearby.
Radiation is the last thing in her system that she should be worried about.
How would you know?
She actually flew with the rest of us serf-types!?!?!?! I can't imagine the horror at being seen with the peasants!
You sure sound like a serf--bitter, jealous, ignorant.
What is she supposed to do, panic? Sheesh. Good for you, Gwen.
I think the picture rule applies to this thread.
Isn't Gwen Stefani anti-Castro? As opposed to the average mushed brain liberal rock star who thinks Castro's cool. Seems she had some other non-liberal ideas , too.
I'm not sure about her political stands although she plays it close to the vest, which makes me think she is I or GOP
Never liked No Doubt or most of her music, but always liked her. Still do.
Hey - Gwen has a good rep. (Ah, as far as my celebrity knowledge goes - which is limited to the covers of tabloids in the supermarket checkout line.)
Plus I like No Doubt, when I'm in the mood for it. If she was the skank type, she'd have breast implants by now.....
Care to share the impetus behind your insult?
I was thinking Courtney Love. My bad.
She's a lot cleaner than most musician types.
There you go! Queen of the skanks!
A metaphor that gives me a moment in my happy place....
Love that polonium-blonde hair!
Oh, yeah, Courtney.... I wouldn't touch her even with Kurt Cobain's ****!
"Radiation is the last thing in her system that she should be worried about."
She just had a baby and doesn't do drugs to my knowledge.
