Gwen Stefani Shows a Different, Emotional Side of Herself in New Video

Longtime fans of Gwen Stefani will probably be fairly surprised by her approach to her latest music video, for her song "Used to Love You." The rock star tends to prefer hard-hitting videos incorporating plenty of action, glamour, and good old-fashioned rock 'n roll—but Stefani hits us hard in a different way this time around.

The song  is about a devastating break-up, and we're sure the lyrics echo her recent real-life split with husband of 13 years Gavin Rossdale; in the video, Stefani faces the camera head-on, transparently showing her emotions on her face. It's quite effective, and you can really sense that the pain she's feeling is not an act.
