Gwen Stefani Reminisces on 'Just A Girl' & Its Feminist Message on 'The View': Watch

Gwen Stefani stopped by The View to chat about returning to The Voice, and the songstress reminisced on her 1995 hit, "Just A Girl" as a feminist anthem in the new Captain Marvel film.

"Through life, you start to realize, 'Oh someone just whistled? What does that mean?' and you get this kind of power through your sexuality but you're kind of vulnerable at the same time because, all of a sudden, you're a victim," she explained. "'Oh, I can't drive late at night? Why?' So you have all these awarenesses as you're getting older and I wanted to write a song about it."  

The group then discussed Stefani's Vegas residency and her return to The Voice, working alongside boyfriend Blake Shelton. "The thing about this show is you can’t strategize. These are real people with real dreams and they’re in the palm of your hands and I basically know that I’ve already lived their dream," she explained.

"You do get competitive because you have these people that you fall in love with and you want to help them," she continued.
