"There's definitely key people that have pointed me into the right direction. Blake really helped me. Not to change the subject, but it's kinda on the same subject, Pharrell was literally like a guardian angel.”

When asked about going public with her and Shelton’s relationship Stefani said: "We didn't! Like, somebody did. That's what's so crazy like, who announces that? Why would I do that?” The couple’s romance was actually confirmed by an rep who last week told Us Weekly: "Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating."

Stefani was also asked if she prefers Southern men or British men, clearly a reference to her ex Gavin, "Oh, that's such a funny question!" Stefani answered. "Let's see, I would say if I had to choose, Southern."
