Gosh. Who saw that coming? Access Hollywood reveals that coach, Gwen Stefani has enlisted her husband, Gavin Rossdale, to be her Team Advisor for The Voice 7 Battle Rounds. YAY NEPOTISM.
Gavin, lead singer of the alternative rock band, Bush, is also Gwen’s husband of nearly twelve years. The couple have 3 children together, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo Bowie Flynn.
“I don’t know how it came about, but it was just one of those things [where] the idea was mentioned – I wasn’t even sure who was mentioning it – and then it came around to, ‘So, next week you ready? You are gonna come and do this?” Gavin told Access’ Liz Hernandez in a new interview.
“It’s a lot of pressure!” he continued. “These people like, I press my button because I thought they sounded good, and then I fight for them. You are in the moment and then they choose you, and it’s like wow, that’s their whole life right this moment! So I felt really responsible.”
Reportedly, this is the first time Gavin and Gwen have worked on a project together outside of the studio. Gavin’s job will be to assist Gwen as she prepares her team for the Battle Rounds. Gavin describes his strategy for being a good mentor.
“The main thing, from my perspective, is just to make sure that Gwen is so good and excellent like all the other judges on the show,” he said. “It’s just sort of to not interrupt and to normally let her speak, let her do her thing and I’m just like a side thing.”
Gwen approves of her husband’s work:
“He is super articulate and he has a really good opinion and he is smart and he’s been doing a really good job,” she said. “We both have, I think, a lot of experience in the sense that when you look back at all the shows and all the things we’ve done – and I mean, we all met like touring together and doing hundreds of shows – and it’s so fun to be in the position to meet [all of the contestants].”
The Voice 7 premieres on NBC September 22.
