Gwen Stefani

Says Hara-f**k-u to Fans

12/13/2006 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

gwen_stefani_220-1Gwen Stefani does not want you to holla for her -- she really, really doesn't.

A TMZ spy was in the audience for a taping of Gwen's appearance on MTV's New Year's Eve special, and he tells us that the fashionista-rocker didn't just ignore fans who were squealing with joy and encouragement, she tried to squelch them. "She would either turn away from the direction of the person complimenting her," says our source, "or she would make a 'cut it out' motion towards them."

Gwen also shielded her face from audience members as she darted from sound check to dressing room before the taping, says our spy. And she interrupted a take of her single "Wind It Up" because her fans were actually making noise when it started.

Perhaps Gwen's gotten rather too used to the mute Harajuku girls who accompany her performances.

A rep for Stefani says that he was at the taping, that the account of events is "news to" him, and that he doesn't think it happened.

The only thing I would be yelling out to her is "Girlfriend, you need to do something about those caterpillar eyebrows'". Really, doesn't she have enough
money to hire a personal assistant to wax or pluck that almost-unibrow?

She needs to be treating her fans better, she's getting nothing but older, she should appreciate young fans.

Nothing is uglier than an woman who is on the backside of 35 trying to stay relevant in today's music. Gwen, please bow out gracefully and let your music evolve with you. It is not cute for an almost 40 woman to act like she is 21 and never been kissed.

Madonna looks foolish.
Janet looks pathetic and
You look dumb and desperate. Furthermore, sticking those horrendous blonde wigs on those Asian dancers is unforgivable.

Also, why are you airing out all of your drama with your husband on certain songs on this album. I guess when ya'll break up in a year or two, then people will GET YOU....

I don't see what the fuss about Gwen Stefani is all about. Why that beyond D U M B single "Hollaback Girl" is considered "music" I will never understand (she's not even singing in it!).

Stefani is nothing but a Madonna wanna-be. She's done nothing but made a career of copying Madonna's style from the 1980s - and that was stupid even then.

Like the vast majority of "singers," she's nothing but a glorified one-hit wonder.

She Needs a new hair color. She is too old to wear platinum blond hair. She should go a darker blond and go lighter with the brows. Oh yeah what was that story about?

WHO KNOWS BUT I DONT BELIEVE THAT STORY CAN BE ENTIRELY TRUE. I HAVE BEEN TO HER CONCERTS BEFORE AND SHE WAS NOTHING BUT APPRECIATIVE AND THANKFUL WITH HER FANS. ONE OF THE CONCERTS, THERE WAS A FAN SCREAMING AND CRYING FOR HER AND SHE BROUGHT HER UP ON STAGE AND HUGGED AND DANCED WITH HER. I HAVE HEARD NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS ABOUT HER. AS FOR HER ACTING 21, I DONT KNOW ABOUT THAT. WHY CANT A 35 YEAR OLD STILL MAKE POP MUSIC? PRINCE IS STILL DOING HIS THING AND NO ONE IS SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT HIM. AS FOR MADONNA, SHE IS AN ICON AND IF IT WAS SO DUMB FOR MADONNA AND GWEN STEFANI TO CONTINUE MAKING THEIR CONCERTS, THEN WHY IS IT THAT THERE CONCERTS ARE SELLING OUT? OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE DONT MIND MADONNA(47YEARS OLD) AND GWEN STEFANI(35) STILL MAKING THEIR MUSIC.

I love Gwen. And #3, everyone is getting older... musicians do not all of a sudden stop being musicians just because they reach a certain age. The talented ones will get better and evolve, just like you said, and just like Gwen has. I don't think you'd like someone telling you to stop doing what you love when you turn 30. I think Gwen has a great original style and a unique voice. The younger generation of singers, (you'll see), the majority will be here and gone in a flash. Gwen will not because she has a voice and an original thing going on. She is not going to "bow out" when she has such a great following of fans. Gwen Rocks!

Does anyone REALLY like seeing Iggy Pop shirtless? Does anyone like seeing the Rollingstones onstage...Don't you just like to close your eyes and listen?

Prince is still doing his thing, no doubt, but he has dropped wearing buttless pants and acting like he is 21 years old.

There is nothing wrong with being sexy at any age. However, when Lena Horne was onstage doing her thing in her late 50s and Eartha Kitt doing her thing in her Sixties..They were classy and their voices spoke for themselves.

I was watching a documentary last nigth where Rosanna Arquette interviewed people like Joni Mitchell, David Crosby, Sting, and so forth..David Crosby put it best that when MTV came on the scene it unintentionally took music from a listening experience to THEATRE...

Will Gwen Stefanni, Beyonce, or Britney Spears (who David Crosby stated whose talent was as deep as a birth bath) be able to stand the test of time. Will all of you "fans" of people like her in your 60s, will you be in the audience waiting to hear her go YODEL LAY HEE HOO and what not?

Music today is not music...

Tom Cruise has landed    

Gwen is great. She may be near 35 but she doesn't look like it at all. So what if she had a bad day? That is like the only negative thing I have ever read about her. So many other celebrities that deserve the bad press.

I would love to have someone follow Harvey Levin of TMZ around for a day...I'll bet they could catch him being rude in a restuarant, adjusting his boxer shorts in the mens stall, speeding on the expressway, checking caller ID and not answering his phone when someone calls he doesnt want to speak with, cracking off color jokes when he thinks he's among friends....its endless what one could "catch" someone doing when they "follow them around"....hey Harvey, we came to TMZ because you have provided real breaking, make a difference kind of stories---now you're filling us up lately with incidental, supposedly happened, could be kind of things that are not either gossip or real news newsworthy.

This one on Stefani takes the cake TMZ...you're fishing sir and would love to see the tables turned on you for just one day.
