In her interview with Vanity Fair, she responded in this way to the question on how she keeps her family and career balanced:
“I don’t. There’s always been days when it doesn’t really work out. Sometimes I’d get physically ill from the guilt of wanting to please everyone -that’s my nature – I hate anyone to be unhappy.”
“But I think my spiritual journey is to have had these weird relationships and write music that people can somehow relate to. I’ve never had a record that is almost all about being happy and in love.”
Gwen says she does and would do everything possible to satisfy her family, friends and children. She admitted that she gets “physically ill from the guilt” if she fails.
The singer is blessed with 3 kids: Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7 and Apollo, 2, from her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale whom she was said to be making efforts to get back.
“I just think what happened was: In February, my family fell apart. It was devastating. I didn’t know what to do. It was a real big secret but I’m not good with that. I tried everything to fix it.
“By June, I went into the studio and started writing. I was praying. I had already started on a spiritual journey when I got pregnant with Apollo that was sort of like, ‘Wow, really? I’m gonna be blessed with a baby… now?’ That was a miracle. It just started me on this spiritual journey and thank God it started then because I was prepared when I had the tragedy. I had that nest of spirituality in me.”
