A Message to Gwen Stefani

Gwen: you can’t sing. You can’t. What you call singing? That’s a combination of talking loudly and screaming. You can’t sing. So, I ask that you please stop what you call “singing” – and for that matter, stop doing it as a “special guest” on the works of others.

I believe that if you stop singing, there will be peace in the middle east. That is all. -pm

If I have to hear that goddamned "Hey Baby" song one more time (OK, I'm only heard it twice so far, but still...) something is going to snap!!!

i gotta stick up for gwen and the rest of no doubt. their a good band and she sings the way she wants. if everyone sang the same looked the same smelled the same ect. this world would be boring and if yall dont like it shut it off!

I do shut it off. All the freakin' time. And I can't say I've ever smelled Gwen Stefani - in fact, I don't think I've ever smelled anyone famous.

I hear Sting smells really weird.

It did seem like we wouldn't have to hear her again, the band was on the DL for about 4 years there. Then, all of a sudden you have her as a guest on all these albums, and the stuff hits the fan.

The biggest injustice is her appearance on Moby's "South Side." I'm glad I have a version without her annoying whiny voice on it.



FROM: fresh
DATE: Sunday December 23, 2001 -- 12:06:43PM
wow yall really got a hatred for her huh? i have smelled my cousin whos the new girl on ally macbeal jenny and she smells alright but you shouldtn hate gwen cuz of her voice. anyone out there think shes an allright vocalist?

Gwen Stefani is passable, at best. Bjork is good.



FROM: fresh
DATE: Monday December 24, 2001 -- 4:18:07PM
i hope there is some sarcastic connintaion in that Bjork comment Rob. Any one see her movie "Dancer in the Dark"? as the comicbook guy from the Simpsons would say..."Worst movie EVER!"



FROM: Robert
DATE: Monday December 24, 2001 -- 6:52:07PM
No way, Bjork rules!!! I didn't see that movie, though. I'm afraid of it sucking, and if I'm going to see Bjork sucking . . .

Oh, nevermind.

DATE: Tuesday December 25, 2001 -- 9:46:35PM
I'm not such a fan of Bjork either, but I'm beginning to think there's a nasty trend of perfectly good guy band/solo songs being ruined by girls they want to sleep with. Robert Smith MUST have a reason in the new Cure song for including the no-talent blonde singing OVER his voice. It seems like a Moby/GS thing.



FROM: Robert

Robert Smith is married, so I hope that's not the case.

I honestly think that Gwen Stefani would not be around if it weren't for a bunch of pre-pubescents who saw her video and though they could "get with her" if they bought her album. Such is the case with most music as of late.

Greg, I was totally gonna put the moves on Pink--AND NOW YOU'VE RUINED IT!!!

Not that it matters, but the gal Sarah was talking about is Saffron from Republica (remember them?).

You are really stupid, my dear!!! Don`t you have anything to do? I think you`re just envious, because Gwen Stefani realized her dream and you don`t. Think about it, stupid guy.

Yeah, Paul, you stupid. How stupid can you be, you stupid stupid? You might even be stupid enough to use ` instead of '.

damn. if you don't like the music, turn it off. that's what i do when dido comes on. that girl is the devil. and her name is commonly confused/associated with dildo. besides, no doubt's new single, Hella Good, does not suck at all.

No, but it uses slang that's at least a decade old.

No so, Ryan. There was an episode of "South Park" last season in which Cartman said "hella" like a million times.

you all effin suck. No Doubt Rules, as does Gwen Stefani. And among all of the famous people that I have rubbed elbows with, GWEN SMELLED SENSATIONAL!!! So, take that.

Gwen might bring new meaning to the phrase "Smell ya later."

How many of you no talent tongue waggers have half the guts to do what Gwen does? She expresses herself without a care to what others think. Could You, and still be successful at it? I think not! You just want to sit around and bash musicians who really do have the talent you wish you had. You are the real pre-pubecents. Grow the F up!

Renee: How many of you no talent tongue waggers have half the guts to do what Gwen does?

Let's see. I'm quite good at tongue wagging, actually, and I do have more than"half the guts" (I have them all). Thus, I can do it!

She expresses herself without a care to what others think. Could You, and still be successful at it? I think not!

Sure, I could. So could anyone. Success isn't measured in money or record sales or MTV airplay.

You just want to sit around and bash musicians who really do have the talent you wish you had.

Actually, I'm fairly certain I'm more talented on the guitar than Gwen is. Thus, I have musical talent.

You are the real pre-pubecents.

Versus... who? At no point was anyone's age brought into this.

Grow the F up!

How does one grow letters of the alphabet? For that matter, how does one grow letters "up"?

Thanks for your valuable input, Renee! Rock steady!

DATE: Monday February 25, 2002 -- 8:42:50 am
Come on Paul! You don't have half the talent Gwen does. Because as we all know, Gwen and half the music industry's talent is all in their chest.

Wow, I have actually been challenged to defend my "wicked winy (sic) voice!"

Where should we do this? I vote for a karaoke bar, that is, if you are old enough to get in or even drive there.

I also received an email on this subject, likely from this same person, that said "If you think Britney can sing better you are seriously disturbed."

Guess what? ALL that music is crap, dreamed up by music executives using focus groups and a frightening large marketing budget!

Sometimes, you gotta tell it like it is...

Can you all sing you nobs? Gwen can definetely sing, if you are not in to her music then don’t listen to her. Try listening to songs other than the ones you are ripping off and you will hear her the range of vocals she is capable of.

“Can you all sing you nobs? Gwen can definetely sing, if you are not in to her music then don’t listen to her. Try listening to songs other than the ones you are ripping off and you will hear her the range of vocals she is capable of.”

I wish I was a nob.
And the fact that imitating someone and failing to sound like them doesn’t necessarily mean that they possess a greater vocal prowess than the imitator. I could try and sound like the fellows from Locust or the Blood Brothers (both of whom screech like molested barn owls– not that I expect you to know who either of them are), but my failure doesn’t mean that they’re better than me.

Gwen x May 10, 2012, 4:47 am

Hi. This is Gwen stefani and I don’t care about what y’all say. I do what I want.

What is this then?
