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."
