After splitting from her husband of 13 years, 49-year-old rocker Gavin Rossdale, rumors have swirled that the GRAMMY winner might be romantically linked to fellow Voice coach Blake Shelton, who is also recently divorced.
Stefani referred to Shelton as "the cowboy" when chatting with ET prior to her MasterCard Priceless Surprises concert on Saturday. "It seems like the cowboy is really happy on the show," she said. "We're all having so much fun on that show. Everybody is in such a good place."
As for the rumors that she and Shelton are an item, she joked, "Have you read the news?"
"The stuff I read about myself blows my mind. Shouldn't I get to do all these things since I'm already accused of them?" he tweeted on Oct. 7. "I literally just got back from FAR northern Quebec chasing caribou and now read about all the crazy stuff I've been doing lately?!! #WTF"
After laughing off the dating rumors, the No Doubt front woman opened up to ET about how music has helped her through her breakup.
"Not that much time has gone by, but so much has happened, so I had to change it," Stefani noted. "I had to get all new costumes, new band, dancers … Everything had to evolve the way I have just in this short amount of time."
