Singer Gwen Stefani's upbringing was so strict, her parents even dictated her shade of underwear until she was 18.

The 33-year-old No Doubt beauty, admits her parents PATTI and DENNIS STEFANI raised their daughter under very rigid Catholic rules - underwear colour included.

She says, "My parents were very strict. I had to wear white underwear until I finished high school.

"But they weren't mean-strict. They were human, loving, and gave me morals, and I feel I'm very stable because of it."
