No Doubt Explain Their Songs

No Doubt are doing their own little version of “Storytellers” on their Web site. They’ve created seven videos that explain what seven of their songs are about.

Singer Gwen Stefani says “Spiderwebs” is about a guy who would call her in the middle of the night and sing poetry to her, and how much she regretted giving him her number.

Bassist Tony Kanal says the “hey baby” part of “Hey Baby” came when Bono walked into their studio and started freestyling.

Stefani says she cried after writing “Simple Kind of Life” because it was the first time she wrote an entire song on guitar by herself.

They had also considered remaking “Don’t Change” by INXS (in-ex-ES) for their greatest-hits album instead of “It’s My Life” by Talk Talk. They went with “It’s My Life” because they completely butchered “Don’t Change.”

Is it in the Water? (And How Can I Avoid It?!)

It’s been awhile since I checked my pregnancy chart. Let’s review who’s pregnant now:

  • Angelina Jolie
  • Ashlee Simpson – depending on whom you believe
  • Nicole Kidman still
  • Gwen Stefani
  • Jessica Alba
  • Tori Spelling
  • Jamie Lynn Spears

This list never seems to officially go away does it?

But if it wasn’t for them, maternity clothes would not look hot. We’d all be wearing plaid and flowered moo-moos forever.
