Gwen Stefani: Husband Gavin Rossdale "Likes Me More" With Makeup
It takes a serious commitment to look like Gwen Stefani.
The No Doubt singer, 42, graces the cover of Harper's Bazaar's September issue, where she opens up about her high-maintenance style. "I've always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you," she tells the writer.
Stefani even wears makeup at home because "I like to make my husband like me more," she says of singer/songwriter Gavin Rossdale, 46. "And he likes it when I'm wearing makeup."
Stefani hits the gym as much as possible, she adds, "but it's more for my brain than it is for my body." It doesn't hurt, however, that constant exercise keeps her at a sample-size. "I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused," Stefani explains.
The "Settle Down" singer -- mom to sons Kingston, 6, and Zuma, nearly 4 -- admits that while it's "super fun being a mom," it's not always easy. "Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I've ever done," she tells Harper's Bazaar. "By far."
A showbiz veteran, the rocker tells the magazine she's grown a thick skin over the years. "That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn't bother me. It's like water off a duck's back," she says. "None of that stuff matters. There's something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It's not part of my reality, so it's okay."
