Gwen Stefani found fame as the lead songwriter for the famous band "No Doubt." Before her days in fame, Stefani once worked at Dairy Queen during her teens.


Looking at a celebrity, fans can only see the glamour and fame they bask in, but not many realize that there was once a time they were just ordinary people trying to make ends meet.

Gwen Stefani has enjoyed the thrills of being a Hollywood star, having a large following on social media, and featuring in the big things of Hollywood. But there is more to the singer's past than the spotlight she now enjoys.

Stefani opened up on the part of her life that her fans might not be acquainted with. The blond beauty revealed that she made her first dollar working at Dairy Queen as a teenager before she found fame.

In a special video for season seven of "The Voice," Stefani opened up on some fun facts her fans might not know about her. And some are quite surprising.


Well, she might be talented and beautiful, but Stefani confessed to her fans that she is a lazy person who enjoys sitting on her bed, eating pizza, and doing nothing.

Besides working at Dairy Queen, Stefani also worked as a makeup artist in a department store when she was 20 years old.

There are other exciting things about the 51-year-old that her fans might not know.


Stefani is not the only star on "The Voice" to have worked at a job before actualizing their dream of being rich and famous — Pharrell Williams too.

Pharrell's name leaves his fans swooning and tripping over his creativity, but not many know that he once worked at McDonald's and, according to reports, was fired for overeating.


44-year-old Blake Shelton, another big name on "The Voice," once worked as a roofer for his stepdad's company earning $8 an hour at age 15.

Besides working at low paying jobs before they found fame, Stefani and Shelton have more in common. Their love affair has added style to their time together on "The Voice."


Stefani and Shelton reportedly announced their engagement in October this year after five years together. Despite the challenges they have faced, the duo has set their eyes on building a future together.

Stefani's gorgeous engagement ring made its first public appearance on "The Voice" Monday night when the singing competition began its first round of live shows.


Stefani's ensemble was breathtaking, but it was her gorgeous square diamond ring that made the headlines, complimenting her long black-and-white acrylic nails.

Her recent engagement with Shelton is one of the many fun things her fans know about her. There are other exciting things about the 51-year-old that her fans might not know.

Not many fans know that their beloved Stefani would have been cast alongside Brad Pitt for the lead role in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." Although Angelina Jolie nailed the role, it was a huge deal that Stefani was considered.
