Gwen Stefani of No Doubt is probably one of the most coolest rock stars out there (or at least she is to me). Whether she's rocking out as the front-woman of her group or whether she's doing it solo, I love all of her music. She and No Doubt as whole just make that laid-back/feel good/no cares in the world type of music and that's the type of music I can just vibe with.
I also really dig her style; it's just something about rocking the feminine and tom-boyish style together that I really like even though I am more of a Plain Jane, I still admire those who can take two totally different styles of clothing and wear them together and make them work. Which is exactly what Gwen does.
Not to mention she was born on Oct 3rd, which makes her a fellow Libra!!! I think she inspires me because she makes me want to be creative. Every time I see any of No Doubts videos or listen to their music or just studying Gwen's style makes me want to be active, to be creative. I also love the way she is raising her children. Letting them be themselves; letting them express themselves. That is the way you're supposed to raise children. It's by letting them have an imagination and allowing them to be creative that you don't kill their spirits. There is saying that goes "Parents are often the first to kill a child's dream" and I honestly believe that in some cases. It is my hope that if I am blessed to have children one day that I remember to guide them, of course but also allow them room to be free to have their own expression and style and not stunt their creativity and assist them in manifesting their dreams.
That is the type of person/parent that Gwen Stefani seems to be, which is why I admire her so much and anyone who lives their life this way is worth admiration.
Gwen in her own words on being creative:
" I have to be creative to be happy."
"My parents always pushed creativity on us, but they made it seem like the fun thing to do."
