Gwen Stefani gets personal for the first time since her split from longtime husband Gavin Rossdale. The singer sat down with Carson Daly on his AMP Radio show, gabbing all about the not-so mysterious inspiration behind her latest hit "Used To Love You."
"Everybody knows that I was married forever and now I'm not," she shared. "Could you imagine what my life is like right now? It's crazy!"
Claiming that she "doesn't have anything to hide," Stefani also admitted that most of her new material is based on the recent split.
"Things went down, I think it was February where my life just, 'Whoa!' It just changed," she told Daly. "Before that, I couldn't really write. I wanted to, but my life was just so…I don't even know how to describe it."
Now, the No Doubt performer has been enjoying life to the fullest and getting back into the party scene, according to PEOPLE.
"My life feels so extreme right now," Stefani said. "The Voice is so fun … this season is crazier because I feel like I know everybody so well and also because my life is crazy. I mean, my life basically blew up in my face and so now I'm like, in this new life and it's pretty awesome, I have to say."
As Radar previously reported, Stefani was spotted getting cozy with Voice costar Blake Shelton—also recently divorced—over Halloween weekend, sparking rumors of a possible romance between the two show judges.
When asked about the photos of the pair, Stefani told Daly: "I was literally that party girl that you hear about when their life blows up and you're like, 'Oh, I'm going out! Watch me!' We're just trying to have fun, you know?"
As for the new single, the singer says its catchy chorus was inspired by "the day…some crazy stuff had gone down, like, crazy stuff in my life."
"I've been writing stuff randomly, like, instead of going online and looking at stupid stuff, but being like, 'I'm just going to write," Stefani continued. "This is how I'm going to heal. I need to write.' And I went back in and found that lyric and then it ended up being the chorus of the song."
