An interview with Fed KAD (that's Kool Aid Drinker for the non-TWers) and Mr. Stefani, Gavin Rossdale. He's got some good zingers in there:
We don’t work out together. It’s like you’ve got to keep the romance alive. No one wants to be sweating like a pig – that would be me. She just glows, clearly.
It seems like a
contradiction that someone who’s a rock star and all that that implies
would be big into Wimbledon, where it’s all about protocol and decorum
and tradition. What is it about Wimbledon that appeals to you?
It was much more going to watch Roger. I mean, that is where it loses out for a lot of English kids. Where I grew up, no one played tennis. Everyone played football. So tennis is sort of quite fancy in England and I think it’s much better to break it up and for it not to be just for the royal family. And you get that from understanding about it and from seeing the degree of athleticism. You know, the top 50 guys are phenomenal athletes. Phenomenal. They could play any sport. Intense artistry, commitment – it’s so passionate. I happened to be in England so I wanted to go and see Wimbledon. But tennis to me is sweating and balance. It’s not about the fancier side of it.
What do you think of Andy Murray’s recent rise? Do you know him at all?
I don’t know him at all, no. It’s just fantastic, it’s great. You know what I like about him? He reminds me a bit of McEnroe. He’s got such great hands. His returns –everything is just swept up. He’s a really incredibly gifted tennis player. And I’m half Scottish so therefore of course I’m really happy for him. I like his attitude as well. He’s quite sort of pissy. Now he’s really good for the image of [the sport] because he’s much more real than sort of blazers and Wimbledon.
I actually saw Gavin and Gwen at Indian Wells last year. I had a total fangirl moment (I FLOVE Gwen, but like, No Doubt Gwen) but he was teaching Kingston how to safely cross the street and Gwen was sitting by the fountain drinking tea and chilling out. Too bad he would later see his boy get waxed by The Sockless Wonder.
