The Gwen Stefani Doll?

Shit like this makes me wonder if newer and younger fans of the heavily-branded solo version of Gwen Stefani even know she used to kick so much ass? I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Stefani back in her No Doubt heyday, right about when "I'm Just a Girl" came out and she was great. Polite, attractive, and knew how get her hands dirty with the boys on stage.

Fast forward a decade and she's synchronize dancing, changing outfits between songs and using a fake pre-teen girly voice. Seeing her in concert these days is about 90% image and 10% music. Sure she's never hidden the fact that she enjoys the girly side of things like free makeup, but one look at her site proves she's just trying too hard. Okay enough of my old man banter, here's more info to help you complete doll collection you've got stashed away in your closet:
