“I was the best thing that ever happened to you…now look at what you lost”
These are the heart-wrenching words belted out by a newly divorced Gwen Stefani on new single ‘Used To Love You.’
Given the No Doubt diva’s split from hubby of 13 years Gavin Rossdale, the timing of the release is particularly apt.
Still, tabloid headlines don’t push songs to the top of the charts these days. Hence, after a solid digital debut (the track hit #2 on iTunes upon release last week), 46-year-old Stefani has hit the promo trail.
‘Ellen’ was the chosen stage to debut the track on TV for ‘The Voice’ season 9 coach.
How did she fare, though? Find out below..
While the song is a welcome return to form, Gwen won’t be given a pass for toasty dry performances like this.
She may (seemingly) be doing away with the hoopla and Harajuku Girls, but there are other ways to engage visually live.
Hopefully, Stefani aquatints herself with some of them before her next live showing.
And we say that with love; she’s in a great position in that the song is charting well despite the industry’s unfortunate gender-age bias. As such, we don’t want to see her drop the ball on her own momentum.
