Just in case you forgot that Gwen Stefani had a real roller coaster of a year last year, what with getting divorced from her nanny-humping husband Gavin Rossdale and subsequent shamelessly thirsty hook-up with the cowboy one from The Voice, Gwen’s latest album cover is here to remind you. Gwen posted the cover art for her third solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like (which comes out on March 18th) to her website earlier today, and it’s truly as subtle as Blake eyeing up Gwen’s ass. This is what a hardworking PR team looks like.
Because Gwen is the original teen girl trapped in the body of a grown woman (sorry, Katy Perry), I shouldn’t be surprised that she’d pull out her favorite Yikes! pencil and cover her album in moody babysitter doodles. Tears, daisies, hearts, stars. She must have run out of lead at some point, because I don’t see the most critical notebook doodle of all: the connecting S! What a shame – a doodle S replacing the S in Stefani really would have tied the whole thing together.
She did, however, make sure to carry the Diary of a Teenage 46-Year-Old theme over to the track list.
We already know that No. 6 is about Gavin, and I’d say it would be fun to guess which songs are about who, but that would be a lie. It’s pretty obvious which ones are about who. Just take all the ones that sound like something you’d spray paint on the side of your ex’s car and go ahead and put them in a pile marked GAVIN. Then take all the ones that look like they were pulled from a 2am text conversation between two horny 20-year-olds and throw those in the pile marked BLAKE. There, mystery solved.
Gwen also announced that she’ll be making the video for “Make Me Like U” during a live four-minute commercial break during the Grammys next Monday night. And apparently Target will be involved. I really hope they shoot the whole thing in a Target store. And if they really want to keep it authentic, they should have Blake following behind Gwen, asking “How much longer you gonna be?” while eating out of an open container of Market Pantry cheese balls. He totally looks like the type.
