In exciting news for my 4th grade self, No Doubt performed live at the Teen Choice Awards tonight. Gwen Stefani rocked out ’90s style to the song “Settle Down” from their new album Push and Shove, due out on September 25th. Serioulsy, she didn’t look a day older than she did in 1999 and it’s somewhat horrifying and somewhat intriguing.
How does she do it? (not starring Sarah Jessica Parker)
If only I could go back to 1997 and tell my 10-year-old self that I would one day be watching my favorite band perform live in 2012 at the Teen Choice Awards — and I would be watching it alone in my NYC apartment. Not a parent in sight. Especially not a parent who wouldn’t let me stay up past my bedtime to watch the ending. Suck it parents. Also, I eat fruit roll-ups on the reg now. So all your rules and restrictions were for naught. (Boo-yah?)
But back to No Doubt. They seriously still rock and I can’t wait to hear more from Push and Shove this fall. And jump on my bed while listening to it. 1997 style.
