I've had such a weird extreme life line. Amazing parents, they're having their 50th wedding anniversary. I'm the second kid. My older brother, Eric, was the creative one; he was my best friend. We started a band together [No Doubt, which he and Stefani formed in 1986, when she was still in high school]. We never meant to make it. Like, we just wanted to play shows, you know? And then I fall in love with this 16-year-old guy,Tony [Kanal],who ends up being our bass player, and we do everything together—and then he breaks up with me.
On getting pregnant:
Yep, it was a surprise but it was also the beginning of a waking up, like, 'Oh, my God, that's beyond this world.' He was kind of another beginning. And literally as soon as he was born,they called me about The Voice. Everything has now been well told. Everybody knows what happened next.
On her divorce:
It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret.
