Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale found themselves sharing a stage last night at the KROQ radio’s Almost Acoustic Christmas show in Los Angeles — an event made all the more special by the fact that Almost Acoustic Christmas show is the very show where the rock-star power couple met 17 years ago. Together they performed Bush‘s “Glycerine,” a song that Rossdale correctly figured “would be so powerful, the two of us on stage like that.” The the No Doubt frontwoman — who showed up looking like she probably did that night in 1995 in red-plaid pants and a sheer black top — joined her Bush frontman after the first verse, and the crowd went wild. And we would have done the same, because Aww! There aren’t many songs so good nor rock couples so cute.
“She sang from her soul,” Estelle told VH1 News, as Big Sean looked on. She recalled first hearing “F?k Me Pumps,” from Winehouse’s debut Frank: “I’m sitting there, like, ‘I know girls like that! I know every one of ‘em girls! We rave with them every week!’” Clearly, even though the two singers came up together, Estelle admired her late friend’s lyrical talents. “It’s hard as an artist to be that clear and that clean in your message and what you’re talking about,” she said. “[Amy Winehouse] was the only one I knew who could do that, and just speak it.” The real revelation of the interview, though, is the new level of appreciation that Big Sean develops for Winehouse as Estelle speaks. “Wow! That’s crazy! I didn’t know it was like that,” he said, admiringly, adding, “I didn’t personally know her. That’s real, man. She sounded like a real G. No, seriously!” (Anyone who needs a reminder of her realness need only watch her shocked gratitude at winning the Grammy for Record of the Year. WARNING: That video nearly made us cry at work?and we watched the ceremony live.) Read more…
