Gwen Stefani says ‘British Music Is The Coolest Thing Ever’

The No Doubt star has stated her admiration for British music.

Gwen Stefani has spoken of the influence British music has had on her career.

“It’s really weird becoming a part of British culture, because I was always such a fan,” she told Elle.

“When I discovered music it was all about the UK… Madness, The Specials, UB40, Depeche Mode, The Cure and all of that 1980s music I worship.

“The music they wrote was so English, it was about their world. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

“When you grow up in Orange County, you never think you’ll go there. The fact that I ended up with this English guy is really weird.”

Stefani and her band No Doubt are rumoured to be planning a World tour later this year. The jaunt is set to include a number of No Doubt UK tour dates.
