Growing up in Southern California, Gwen Stefani wasn’t doing a lot of the same things current boyfriend Blake Shelton was doing in Ada, Oklahoma. Musically, the two paths didn’t cross much either as Gwen loved an underground ska band called Madness and Blake idolized Billy Ray Cyrus.
During a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Gwen shared that they both really like ’70s yacht rock, but that their musical tastes still don’t cross over that much. However, Gwen did share that though Blake wasn’t necessarily rocking out to No Doubt back in the day, he did date a girl that really loved Gwen, “He didn’t know what ska is… actually, though he did tell me that he once dated a girl with my face plastered all over her whole bedroom.”
I didn’t have posters, but I did beg my parents to change our answering message to, “Sorry I’m not / home right now / I’m walking into spiderwebs/ So leave a message / And I’ll call you back.”
