Gwen Stefani is a few days away from unleashing her emotionally honest third solo LP, This is What the Truth Feels Like, out March 18. The album follows Stefani's public divorce with Gavin Rossdale and, as she told NPR on Monday (March 14), it helped her heal.
The No Doubt singer admits that TISWTTFL has her dealing with personal issues in public. But, as she knows it, she's never been one to censor herself.
