No more Hollaback Girl?

Gwen Stefani dropped a bit of a bomb during her band No Doubt’s interview with EW this past weekend in California. The multi-tasking singer/fashion designer/mother-of-two/L’Oreal spokesmodel implied to the magazine that her days as a solo artist are likely over.

Nooooooo! Oh, yes.

“That was a moment in time,” Stefani said about her solo career, which consisted of two albums, ‘Love.Angel.Music.Baby’ and ‘The Sweet Escape.’ The latter came out five years ago, while the former yielded a massive hit in the form of ‘Hollaback Girl.’ You know you used to sing ‘This s— is bananas / B-a-n-a-n-a-s’ in the car every time that song came on the radio, which happened very often, as it was a smash hit that went on to sell over a million downloads.

But Stefani doesn’t yearn for that massive pop radio success anymore, acknowledging that her solo sojourn “went on a little longer than we all thought it would, because it was inspired and you have to go with wherever you’re at in that time in your life … [But] everything works out how it should.”

No Doubt haven’t released an album since 2001’s reggae-inspired ‘Rock Steady’ and apparently, the band also reveals a big secret in this week’s issue of EW, which hits stands Friday. Damn those teasers! Guess we’ll have to wait a few more days to find out what No Doubt reveal to the publication.
