Gwen Stefani is the lead singer of the band No Doubt. She was born in Fullerton, California. Her brother Eric founded No Doubt in 1986 with Tom Dumont, but left the band to become an animator on The Simpsons. She became the group's lead singer after original frontman John Spence committed suicide in 1988.

Two other members include Adrian Young and Tony Kanal who joined in 1989.

On September 17, 2002, Stefani married Bush guitarist Gavin Rossdale.

Thus far, her solo career has been most recognized for a pair of popular 2001 duets, the "Southside" remix with techno artist Moby and "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" with rapper Eve. In fact, Stefani became the first artist in history to win both Best Male Video and Best Female Video awards at the MTV VMA's, for "Southside" (credited as "Moby featuring Gwen Stefani") and "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" (credited as "Eve featuring Gwen Stefani) respectively, both in 2001. But, Stefani is currently working on a solo record tentatively titled What You Waiting For, scheduled for release in the second half of 2004.
