Gwen Stefani is finally opening up about her divorce from her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
In an interview with Carson Daly, Gwen reflected on 2015 thus far, saying it's been "extreme."
"My life is so extreme right now," she said. "My life basically blew up in my face. And now I'm in this new life, and it's pretty awesome I have to say -- I'm so inspired and being back on the show, and just being in a new place. Everything just feels new. I just feel inspired. I don't know how else to describe it."
During the conversation, she even joked that she was going to "throw up" from actually speaking about her personal life.
Since breaking up with Gavin, a split that shocked nearly everyone, the rumor mill has been churning up stories linking Gwen with fellow, newly single "Voice" coach Blake Shelton. The two recently attended the same Halloween party together and were reportedly spotted holding hands.
"I was literally that party girl that you hear about when their life blows up, and you're like, 'Yeah! I'm going out! Like, watch me!'" she said of the party that was also attended by Adam Levine. "We're just trying to have fun. You know?"
In the interview, Carson asked how her music has been affected by her divorce.
"You just said the D-word on the radio!" she joked. "Wow . . . does anybody have a bucket? This is like, way more intense than I thought it was gonna be. I don't know. I'm just trying to explain it to everyone that this is crazy what's happening to me. Everybody that hears a song, and I don't have anything to hide. Everybody knows what my life was like before I was married. Could you imagine what my life is like now? It's crazy!"
It's also different from a professional mindset, too. The first time returning to the studio after the divorce was odd.
"On the way into the studio the first time, I didn't want to go. I wanted to be in my bed, like, crying," she shared. "And I did, I cried all the way down to Santa Monica, driving to Santa Monica, and I was like, 'What am I doing? Why am I doing this?'"
From there, she was good to do what she does.
"That feeling of being able to write again, that's everything to me," she shared. "My value on myself is by songwriting . . . I think within 8 weeks I had 19 songs . . . I was like, 'Listen all I wanna do is I just want to say the truth. I just want the truth to come out. I just want to be honest and real that represents where I'm at right now.'"
