The Voice – Season 17 In a cover interview for Paper magazine that hit the web Wednesday, Gwen Stefani once again refused to provide an answer to one of Hollywood’s favorite guessing games — what are her political views?
In 2012, the singer was a major fundraiser for Barack Obama’s campaign. But that was before her relationship with country star Blake Shelton. Since then, Stefani has made no further personal political donations and seems to have adopted her fiancé’s policy of keeping her party allegiance to herself.
“I can see how people would be curious, but I think it’s pretty obvious who I am,” the Voice coach told reporter Kat Gillespie. “I’ve been around forever.”
Stefani then explained that she sees no reason celebs should have to divulge their decisions in the voting booth. “The whole point of voting,” she said, “is you have this personal space to feel how you feel. I use my platform to share my life story and to engage with people and to exchange whatever gift I was giving. I’m not a political science major. I am not that person. Everyone knows that. So why would I even talk about it?”
Stefani also downplayed a feminist reading of her monster 1995 hit, “Just a Girl,” saying, “I don’t even know if I knew what feminist at that time was. I was very sheltered growing up with my family. I wasn’t political. I wasn’t angry.” The No Doubt frontwoman then described a philosophy of personal empowerment that doesn’t rely on group identity. “I don’t need to go on Instagram and say ‘girl power.’ I just need to live and be a good person and leave a trail of greatness behind me. Stop talking about it and stop trying to bully everybody about it. Just do it.”
Shelton similarly declined to jump on the anti-Trump bandwagon in a 2016 interview with Billboard . Rather than following the lead of so many in his industry and condemning the former Apprentice host, he tried to explain why cancel culture and speech suppression led voters in red states like his native Oklahoma […]

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
