Not 'Just a Girl' Gwen Stefani Talks About the Challenges of Her Career

Gwen Stefani is a talented lady. A great singer, fantastic performer, fashion designer, business woman, devoted mother and wife, she has managed, with success, to be one of those lucky women who 'has it all'. But 'having it all', paradoxically, doesn't come for free, and talking to Vogue, she (along with the rest of No Doubt) tells them about the hard work and elements of sacrifice it all takes.

"She thinks she's failing at everything," said her ex-boyfriend, Tony Kanal. "It's hard to manage that many things: She's got the band, her family, her husband, her clothing lines...I think when she looks back on it, she'll see she did incredibly well." 

In a world of rock music, where Gwen's constantly surrounded by men, Kanal and the band have noted the difference in their genders, by saying how different it is for her to be touring while being a mother, as opposed to a father, and Gwen has also felt that difference over the years. "There have been some times where I have felt that really sh*tty feeling of being like, Gosh, do the men in this world even think that I'm on their level?" 

Of course, she's not 'Just a Girl' and despite it being a self confessed "huge challenge" and "ridiculous" she seems to be doing everything justice, and all of those challenges merely fuel the fire of her lyric writing. "If you don't do it right," she says "there are serious consequences. That's what this whole record was: trying to balance it, trying to be my creative self but also be the new me."  

It has all been a struggle, however as she says "this, being in No Doubt, is really who I am."
