Gwen: Unlike Gaga and Rihanna, I wear pants

With their powerhouse vocals, quirky personalities and commanding stage presence, it's no surprise that Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry have been compared to Gwen Stefani. But the No Doubt singer believes she has  little in common with the trio.

"I don’t see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on," she tells the May issue of Elle magazine. "I see these girls as more going for the sex-symbol thing. I was more, in the band, like a tomboy. Of course, I think every girl is sexy, so there’s going to be a little of that. But I see a lot of younger artists going more toward the sexy thing.”

That's not to say Stefani doesn't pay attention to her appearance.

"I’m very vain," she admits. "That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual."

    She was really the original. Her sense of style also appeals to more then just her.

    I don't know why a lot of people here are criticising GAGA RIHANNA and KATY PERRY ( I adore them especially RIRI).
    Gwen Stefani is the neing rude here. I love Gwen's music and her career is brilliant and so is gaga's rihanna's and katy's. So pls shut the f*** up all of them are gr8 ARTISTS.

    im not a huge fan of GS but shes got wayyy more talent than riri, katy perry and lady gaga combined. Hell just her work with no doubt is enough to say that, nevermind her mega success afterwards, the clothing company and two solo albums are just affirmations to that..

    Cannot even compare Gwen to any of those other 3! America on takes intrest in Gaga b/c she is so weird. Rhianna gets attention b/c she is a so called victim. Katy is fairly new compared. But Gwens music, alone, and with No Doubt, is 100 x better than those 3 could ever dream to be.

    The stars these day are usually half naked on the stage. There are really only a select few that don't show it all. Hilary Duff is an excellent example. Lady GaGa is the worst @ keeping her clothes on. Lady GaGa has certainly not even come close 2 accomplishing more then Gwen Stefani! That's a joke! Yeah Lady Gaga has good songs, but she's mainly known 4 the stupid outfits she calls "fashion". I don't care what she says dressing her outfits are just bizarre!

    Gaga can't even be taken seriously. Might make money, but it's only because America is attracted to the 'outrageous' and dramatic life.

    "I don't know what a holler back girl is... I just know I want her dead" Lol, jk. Love that quote. Seriously though, I'd take Stefani over Gaga, Perry and Rihanna anyday.
