London, March 14 (IANS) Singer Gwen Stefani admits she was unable to write new music after giving birth to her second son because she felt unhappy with her body.
The 41-year-old gave birth to her second son Zuma in August 2008.
“I hadn’t planned on doing a tour; I’d had Zuma, I felt so gross – I got so big and felt so out of touch and not cool. I was trying to write this cool record and nothing came out,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.
“I felt so bad because you’ve got this whole band waiting, but I couldn’t write. So we said, ‘Let’s go on tour’,” she added.
Stefani, who has another son Kingston, 4, with her husband Gavin Rossdale, found going back on stage tough.
“We had no new single, we hadn’t been on stage together for, like, five years and every night I’d get teary-eyed because of those old songs. I’m up on stage and I’m singing songs about relationships I’ve had and I’m looking over and my kids are watching me. It’s very surreal,” she said.
