Gwen Stefani, the homecoming queen

The No Doubt frontwoman was easily the standout at the Anaheim celebration put on by KIIS-FM. Peers seemed to have trouble winding it up.
By Mikael Wood, Special to The Times

With five shows left on the world tour that's kept her on the road for much of 2007, Gwen Stefani stopped at the Honda Center in her Anaheim stamping grounds Saturday night, and to mark the occasion, KIIS-FM (102.7) threw a homecoming celebration -- complete with the USC marching band -- for 17,000 or so of Stefani's closest friends.

The No Doubt frontwoman shared the stage with some high-profile opening acts, each compelled to perform not only out of respect for Stefani but also by the unspoken quid pro quo that radio-festival gigs represent to artists interested in preserving their on-air presence.

Timbaland, the influential hip-hop producer who this year has become a pop star in his own right, performed, as did the Brooklyn rapper Fabolous, Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls, R&B crooner Lloyd and Sean Kingston, the 17-year-old Jamaican singer whose "Beautiful Girls" made a serious run for song-of-the-summer status.

Still, there was no question that this was Stefani's party. When her song "Wind It Up" cropped up in an energy-drink spot during an interstitial video package, the crowd cheered as though the singer herself had appeared.

The roar reached a deafening level when that actually happened.

Stefani's sweet escape to Sleep Train
By Chris Macias - Bee Pop Music Critic

Gwen Stefani was ready to launch into "Early Winter," but all the bugs buzzing around her wanted to share the spotlight. Maybe those bugs were attracted to the scent of Stefani's own perfume (L, a L.A.M.B. Fragrance by Gwen Stefani, coming soon to a Nordtsrom near you). Or perhaps there wasn't enough insect repellent backstage on Monday night. Whatever the case, those critters wouldn't stay away.

"Do you guys have as many bugs as I do?" Stefani asked the nearly sold-out crowd at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre. "But I'm just going to embrace it and see how many I can get in my mouth by the end of the night."

The bugs were probably just attracted to Stefani's natural sweetness. She's the "Orange County Girl" with a perpetual smile, thoroughly entertaining show, and gushes to the crowd that, "You're all so cute close up, like deliciously Sacramento-ish."

But Stefani is the girl with the most cake. She's got all those hit records - both as a solo singer and with the band No Doubt - created a fashion line, married a rock star and has a baby boy named Kingston. It's like Stefani played the "MASH" game (Mansion/Apartment/Shack/House) as a girl and everything came out magically good and true. The rest of us got stuck with the apartment and drive a Ford Escort.

Stefani certainly doesn't skimp on her shows. It's part pep rally (the "b-a-n-a-n-a-s" chant in "Hollaback Girl"), part Broadway musical (the bit from "The Sound of Music" in "Wind it Up" that turns Stefani into a yodel-back girl), plus a whole lot of breakdancing from Stefani's sidekicks.
