Sunday, February 20th, 2011


Congratulations to Tom and Mieke on the birth of their third son, Koa Thomas Dumont, yesterday morning!!!!

From the band’s twitter:

  1. Congratulations to Tom and Mieke on the arrival of Baby Boy Koa! We are so happy for you! Can’t wait to meet him!!! – Tony, Adrian & Gwen
  2. Koa Thomas Dumont was born this morning at 5am. Baby boy & parents are great. Looks like his brothers! One more No Doubt baby in the world!

Adrian tweeted this a couple days ago:

“Hey all, check out a ska/reggae instructional dvd called Wicked Beats where there r live clips from the 2009 tour from the drum cam. Adrian”

The DVD is called “WICKED BEATS: Jamaican Ska, Rocksteady & Reggae Drumming”.  I found it on Amazon here.

Gwen’s L’Oreal hair commercial has finally shown up online. I’ve been recording random shows, trying to catch it on TV so I could upload it myself, but I haven’t seen it yet.

Gwen’s L.A.M.B. fashion show was a success as usual!!  Apparently, at the end, Kingston ran onto the runway after her!  So cute!  You can read more about that here. Here’s a video found on YouTube:

Extra has posted a video interview with her, which includes some footage of the show:

Gwen posted a video that played in the background of the fashion show on the official site.  It features some gorgeous photos of her.

According to this interview, Gwen was recently photographed for the cover of Elle magazine!  Can’t wait to see that!

USA Today allowed readers to submit questions for Gwen for this interview.

L’Oreal photo, law suit update

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Has anyone noticed this photo of Gwen on L’Oreal’s web site? :

If you go there, and just search for “Stefani”, it’s on the third link in the search results.

From the Beverly Hills Courier:

“No Doubt Breach Of Contract Lawsuit Update

(CNS) Posted Tuesday February 15, 2011 – 2:34pm

Members of the band No Doubt can move forward with a breach-of-contract lawsuit against a video game developer over the use of their likenesses in the game “Band Hero,’ a state appellate court panel ruled today.

The three-justice panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal upheld Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kenji Machida’s decision last April 15 denying a dismissal motion by lawyers for Activision.

They had asked that the case be thrown out on grounds it violated the company’s right to free speech through creative expression.

Machida said the crux of the suit is an allegation that the firm used the digital avatars of the band to a greater extent than allowed under a contract.

“Band Hero” includes three songs from No Doubt in which players can perform as members of the group fronted by singer Gwen Stefani.

The suit, filed in November 2009, alleges they did not agree to let players use their virtual likenesses to perform other songs available on the game.”

You can read the actual legal filing from yesterday here, if you desire.  Sort of interesting…

InStyle, HL fragrance, L’Oreal, etc…

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Hello!  Well, I used my work scanner (shhh) to scan Gwen’s L’Oreal ad in InStyle magazine.  They aren’t the best quality, but I wanted to post because Gwen made a few more appearances in the magazine.  There is a photo and review of the new HL fragrance “G of the Sea”.  Also, a full page featuring some of Gwen’s different looks over the years, etc.  All are here in the gallery.

The new, limited edition Harajuku Lovers G of the Sea fragrance is currently available at Sephora.
“G of the Sea is a beautiful mermaid with gorgeous flowing hair and an adorable green tail. Inspired by the magical world of her underground playground, this new, limited-edition Harajuku Lovers fragrance features a citrusy woody-floral scent.

Top notes delight in juicy splashes of crisp apple, magical water lily, and the tangy sweet surge of crushed berries. Soak in its heart, filled with flirty bouquets of dewy freesia, whispers of pink peony, and delicate kisses of jasmine petals. Finally, leave an enchanting trail of smoothly sundrenched woods, sensually transparent musks, and luscious amberwood.

Crisp Apple, Waterlily, Crushed Berries, Dewy Freesia, Pink Peony, Jasmine Petals, Sundrenched Woods, Transparent Musks, Amberwood.
Enchanting. Smooth. Transparent.”  Sounds yummy!

Italian Vogue has posted a slideshow of some behind the scenes photos from Gwen’s L’Oreal shoot, as well as an article here.

Gwen is going to be included in a new photo exhibit by photographer Anastasia Pantsios called Girls on Film: 40 Years of Women in Rock, starting tomorrow at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.  From the Hall of Fame’s web site: “The exhibit, featuring images by photographer Anastasia Pantsios, offers a snapshot into the world of some of the most influential women in rock and roll over the last four decades.”

More information, and an interview with the photographer, can be found here on The News-Herald web site.

Apparently one of Gwen’s retro-like up-do’s is shown in a new vintage hair how-to book called “Style Me Vintage: Hair: Easy Step-by-Step Techniques for Creating Classic Hairstyles”; currently available for pre-order on Amazon.  It’s release date is May 1st.

Producers Kazuhiki ‘Kaz’ Asonuma, Sly & Robbie, and Rory Baker worked on the album “One Pop Reggae” from Sly & Robbie and the Family Taxi, which is nominated for a Grammy Award this year for “Best Reggae Album”.  In this interview with “Kaz” on the Jamaica Gleaner site, he mentions his work with No Doubt:

“His next Grammy encounter was working with American rock group No Doubt.

“No Doubt recorded at the One Pop Studio, which at the time was at my house in Barbican. They recorded Hey Baby (with Bounty Killer) and Underneath It All (with Lady Saw) there,” he said, adding, “after Gwen Stefani saw Lady Saw performing there at the house, she felt like doing the song (Underneath It All) over. She voiced the song twice.”

Hey Baby and Underneath It All won the award for ‘Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals’, the first winning in 2003, and the second, the following year.”

Gwen’s L’Oreal lipstick print ad

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

I have a subscription to InStyle magazine, and I just got the March issue in the mail today. Gwen’s L’Oreal lipstick ad is in it! Unfortunately, I don’t have a working computer at the moment (grrrrrr), so I can’t scan it just yet. I took the best photo I could with my phone:

(click to view larger)

Hopefully will have a scan up soon.  :)
