Gwen Stefani Cover September 2012 Issue of Harpers Bazaar

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of the September 2012 issue of Harper's Bazaar. She's wearing a Alexis Mabille Couture hat and Jil Sander gown on the cover. In the interview, Gwen talks about being a mom, staying in shape and how her first record happened.

On Being a Mom: "It's, like, the real deal, dude. It's superfun being a mom, but it's hard too. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I've ever done - by far."

On How She Keeps Her Figure: "I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it's ridiculous. There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself! But it's more for my brain than it is for my body."

On Her First Record: "Let me tell you how that first record happened: My boyfriend had broken up with me and I was devastated, so I wrote all these songs. I didn't even know I could write. I was just a girl who was in love with this guy, then suddenly I'm a songwriter, and I've gotten you back so good. I went from being nothing, from being an ordinary, nerdy girl, to having power."
