Gwen Stefani Kicks Off Vegas Residency With Wardrobe Malfunctions, Blake Shelton ‘Fantasy’
Gwen Stefani launched her Just a Girl residency in Las Vegas Wednesday night (June 27), delighting fans with a set jam-packed with career-spanning hits (both solo and No Doubt), surprise cover songs, onstage PDA directed at Blake Shelton and a number of wardrobe malfunctions.
While performing at the Zappos Theater at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, Stefani reportedly suffered from a handful of costume issues, which she navigated with a sense of levity.
At one point, when a backup dancer struggled to remove a corset from Stefani, the pop star invited three girls onto the stage to help her.
"Someone get up here and take this s--- off me right now! I want you and you to come undress me right now, please," she told audience members, per Billboard.
"See, this is basically our dress rehearsal, and that’s why I said tonight was one of the most memorable of the entire tour," she continued. "This is the very first time this has ever happened to me. Actually, I crapped my pants one time in the crotch!"
During the rest of her set, Stefani treated fans to an assortment of singles and fan favorites from her discography—which includes three solo albums and six with her ska band, No Doubt—including "Hollaback Girl," "It's My Life," "Hey Baby," "What You Waiting For?" and "The Sweet Escape."
She also performed Rihanna's "Umbrella" and "The Tide Is High," popularized by Blondie.
At one point during the evening, Stefani, donning a sparkling Jeremy Scott-designed cowgirl outfit, gave a shout-out to her country-crooning boyfriend, Shelton, who was in the crowd.
"You don’t know what it’s’ like to be able to wear a cowgirl costume right in front of Blake Shelton. This is like my fantasy come true, thanks for sharing it with me," she gushed, as the audience cheered.
