Gwen Stefani Reveals Ongoing Battle With Weight

by at . Comments

Guess Nicole Richie isn't the only one struggling with weight problems.

Gwen Stefani is awesome. Despite being a huge star with a great body, a beautiful celebrity baby and a hunky husband, she remains down to earth and universally pleasing.

But that doesn't mean it's easy for her.

See the May Harper's Bazaar in which Gwen opens up about her relationship with her husband, losing the weight she put on while pregnant with Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, her own narcissistic ways, and her struggle with eating...

On looking good on the go:
"There's always paparazzi outside my house. If you had paparazzi outside your house, you'd make sure you looked good, too."

On Gavin Rossdale being a great father:
"I even wrote in a song, 'You seem like you'd be a good dad.' So, yeah, he's lived up to my expectations, more than. He has always been very loving and romantic."

On her fashion style:
"I've gotten a little more feminine over the last few years. Right into my late 20s, I never wore heels; I was always in my Doc Martens and baggy pants. But as the years go by, you get more comfortable with looking more like a woman."

THG NOTE: Gwen is also known for her... um, interesting hair.

On her ongoing battle with weight
:
"Seriously, though, it's very boring and embarrassing and I hate talking about it, but it's true: I've always been on a diet, ever since I was in the sixth grade. It's an ongoing battle, and it's a nightmare. But I like clothes too much, and I always wanted to wear the outfits I would make. And I'm ... very vain."

THG NOTE
: Hey, we're cool with it if she is. And it certainly seems to be working for her, unlike fashion-faux-pas queens like Mischa Barton.

On where she'll be in 10 years:
"Some days, I think there's no way to get away with this any longer…I still feel like that sometimes, even though it's been 20 years. But then some days, I just feel really inspired and I really believe in everything. It's like the 15 minutes just keep getting longer."

On getting back into shape after giving birth
:
"It's so much work afterward to get the baby weight off. I thought I was going to throw up (the first time she went jogging after giving birth). If you just do it, it comes off. And when you're nursing, like I am, your metabolism is like, whoosh!"

THG NOTE:
That's TMI, Gwen Stefani. TMI. Still, we're grateful for the candidness of your interviews. While we respect Justin Timberlake's "I don't talk about my personal life" mentality, openness is always appreciated.
