There are always rumours going around about how Madonna hates Gwen Stefani for stealing her schtick. Her schtick being platinum bottle blonde Italian-American with English husband and ugly/crazy/cool fashion sense. Maybe this is true and maybe it isn't. Gwen's new album is kinda silly (okay, very silly). I hated the first single "Wind It Up" when I first heard it. Like, did she seriously sample that goat herder song from The Sound of Music? Is she really yodelling? But it grew on me. Her new single "The Sweet Escape", the album's title track, is similarily stupid yet catchy. It might also be the sonic stepsister to Madonna's "True Blue". Something else for Ms Cicone to hate Ms Stefani over.
