She’s a talented musician and fashion designer, but even Gwen Stefani knows when to tone it down. For a concert in Malaysia yesterday, the Sweet Escape singer kept it modest.
The 7000-person crowd was ecstatic as the former No Doubt frontwoman brought her show to town. But the mostly-Muslim town made some serious demands of the singer’s wardrobe department.
The cover-up outfits were a reaction to the National Union of Malaysian Muslim students’ assertion that Stefani’s usual skin-baring outfits violated traditional Islamic values.
And Gwen was happy to appease the Muslims. She told press, "I've been in the music industry for 20 years and this is the first time that I'm facing opposition from people who have misunderstood me. I'm not a bad girl."
