Welcome to another edition of #MusicCrushMonday on PopStyleBlog.com. Today was my first day back to school (#Teacherslife, #EducatorsRock, #DanceTeacherForever) and I needed to give myself a pep talk to just break my summer cycle of living. I needed a pep in my step, a swing in my hips, and beam in my smile as I greeted my colleagues after 2 months a part. Who else to give me that feel good, California chill, effortless smile/pep, and enviable swag other than this week’s #MusicCrushMonday…. GWEN STEFANI!!!!
The lovely Gwen Stefani has always been able to churn out pop-ska-alternative hits that give you the “feel goods” and the spunk to kick some a**. Whether they were with her band No Doubt from the 1990s or as a solo artist, Gwen knows exactly what it takes to get you up and say “Just a Girl” but I aint no ““Hollaback Girl”! Both of these songs were my #MorningMotivation jams to get me in the mood to return to the schoolhouse and plan for a kick a** year!! (Click the titles above to see the music videos).
I hold a special place in my heart for Miss Gwen, my 1st girl crush, and have always respected her hustle as a an artist, clothing designer, coach on the Voice, and integrity in the music world. She remains humble, in fabulous shape, and true to her musical roots. Here’s to you Gwen!! Shout out to all the educators/teachers/school admins holding it down last week, this week, next week, and beyond as we get ready for another school year!! We aint no Hollaback Girls! (or boys!) Til next time… Keep it #PopStyle
