Gwen Stefani Has Fans Wondering Who The Song 'Misery' Is About

(Radio.com) As much as Gwen Stefani's new album deals with her marriage's end, it appears to be equally about her new relationship. So who exactly is her new tune "Misery" about: her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale or her new country beau Blake Shelton?

Stefani released a lyric video for the new track on Friday (March 11th), which uses a notebook to doodle the song's words. "Where'd you go?/ I got so used to being round you boy/ I'm trying not to care, but where'd you go?/ I'm doing my best to be sensible/ I'm trying not to care, but/ You're like drugs/ You're like drugs to me," Stefani sings in the opening verse.

On the chorus, Stefani begs the man she addresses throughout the song, "Put me out of my misery/ Hurry up, come save me/ Enough enough of this suffering/ Hurry up, come save me/ Put me out of my misery/ Put me out of my misery."

While some have speculated that Stefani could be singing about her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, a completely fair claim given that she could be pining over a different outcome than her divorce, it's equally possible that "Misery" is about Shelton. Whether Stefani is singing for her new man to pull her out of a post-divorce funk, or for her former husband to return and restore their relationship to its former glory is a tricky call. Listening to the song from each perspective, it makes sense either way. Read more and watch the video here.
