This year has been particularly trying for "The Voice" coach Gwen Stefani, but she refuses to let the rumors get her down.
After splitting from her husband of 13 years, 49-year-old rocker Gavin Rossdale, rumors have swirled that the GRAMMY winner might be romantically linked to fellow "Voice" coach Blake Shelton, who is also recently divorced.
Stefani referred to Shelton as "the cowboy" when chatting with ET prior to her MasterCard Priceless Surprises concert on Saturday. "It seems like the cowboy is really happy on the show," she said. "We're all having so much fun on that show. Everybody is in such a good place."
As for the rumors that she and Shelton are an item, she joked, "Have you read the news?"
Shelton has also shot down rumors that he's moving on after ending his four-year marriage to Miranda Lambert.
"The stuff I read about myself blows my mind. Shouldn't I get to do all these things since I'm already accused of them?" he tweeted on Oct. 7. "I literally just got back from FAR northern Quebec chasing caribou and now read about all the crazy stuff I've been doing lately?!! #WTF"
After laughing off the dating rumors, the No Doubt front woman opened up to ET about how music has helped her through her breakup.
"The biggest gift has been to be able to take some tragedy and write a song about it and share that," Stefani said. "The rewards that I've gotten through that is just unbelievable."
The "Holla Back" singer wrote a whole new album in just eight weeks, and her MasterCard Priceless Surprises concert on Saturday marked her first performance since February. The concert, which took place at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom at The Manhattan Center, was available for select MasterCard customers.
"Not that much time has gone by, but so much has happened, so I had to change it," Stefani noted. "I had to get all new costumes, new band, dancers … Everything had to evolve the way I have just in this short amount of time."
