Earlier this morning on the Today show, the coaches of The Voice appeared for an interview.
Matt Lauer surprised Gwen Stefani after he followed up questions about Blake Shelton's divorce with some unexpected questions about her own.
After her initial shock, Pharrell encouraged her to speak about it on "the platform you have right now," and she did:
What I'll say about that is that I've never put a record out where I'm actually going through things in real time. Like Tragic Kingdom: I wrote that record over a three-year period and then it came out, and then it was, like, two years on tour. It was like this long, drawn out thing.I wrote that song like a couple weeks ago, and then I sat in front of a camera in a dressing room — randomly not making a video, just to do like some video for the screens behind me — and then it went out and it was the video and it's like all very real.It's just nice to do music and have support from everybody. I don't know these people but for whatever [reason] I feel their energy and their love coming back at me and that's really comforting.
