Forgive me for expecting a little more from Gwen Stefani than isolated face shots with uncomfortable acting. Perhaps she’s been in the monkey house too long and can no longer smell the shit, but this non-creative approach to her pain is more than a little awkward. And yes, I understand it’s SUPPOSED TO BE AWKWARD, but this simply does not work. It especially doesn’t work when those close up shots are covered in makeup, adding a less than vulnerable effect. If you’re going to bare your soul, be a little less concerned about your appearance. As for the melody and the lyrics, it’s average.
