No Doubt

Lead singer Gwen Stefani hasn't left the spotlight much since the 1990s, but the platinum blonde beauty has become more famous for her clothing line than her music recently. That seems to be changing now that her band, No Doubt, has released a new single. The video for the song, "Looking Hot," was pulled after some viewers thought that it was offensive to Native Americans. The video showed the 43-year-old mom and band mate Tony Kanal wearing Native American clothing. The band issued an apology for the video, but they are spending some time in the spotlight as a result.
