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