…because as I get older she seems to, well, not.
When I heard that Gwen Stefani was about to join The Voice as a new judge my first thought was, “Oh yeah where in the holy hell has she been?” followed by my next immediate thought of, “I’m pretty sure she’s the #1 MILF around.” I later pondered the thought of still using the word “MILF” in 2014 society, but I’ll work through that later. Either way, she’s 45 now. Did you know that? Who cares, right?
Gwen just released a brand new single “Baby Don’t Lie” which is actually her first solo release in over 8 years. That’s right…8. Years. How the hell old am I?! I have to admit I kind of immediately cringed when I heard the news because I thought she was going to go the way of J Lo and Mariah with the whole, “Ok reel it in” thought bubbles that plagued my brain. But shortly after listening to “Baby Don’t Lie” I quickly remembered why I first fell in love with Gwen all those years ago. First off, the song is already stuck on a loop in my head and, second, she’s still going with that whole Jamaican sound that makes me feel like she can do Rihanna better than Rihanna can do Rihanna.
