If you've picked up an Us Weekly in the past six months, you get the sense that Gwen Stefani is happy as a clam. According to the tabloids, she has a new album coming out, she's back on The Voice, and she and Blake Shelton are the most-in-love couple in the history of the world.

So it's easy to forget that just last summer she announced the end of her 13-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale — because he was cheating on her with, yes, the nanny, who is now pregnant. Now that Stefani's This Is What the Truth Feels Like is on shelves, interviewers are asking her some hard-hitting questions about her tumultuous year.

In an interview with Time, Stefani said she has limits when it comes to talking about the split.

"I don't feel like I have anything to be ashamed of," she said. "I've done nothing wrong. I don't feel like I have anything to protect about myself. But when you're a mother, you have to have some boundaries."

The new record deals with the emotions of the divorce as well as finding new love with Shelton, Stefani said. "It was the first time that I really had written a record from a different point of view of being in love and being grateful and being in a really, 'Oh my God, I got saved!' kind of place," she told Time.

As E! Online points out, Shelton is also doing his best to publicize the record. After tweeting a photo of This Is What the Truth Looks Like climbing the iTunes charts, he tweeted a message to his girlfriend, "Hey @gwenstefani... My favorite song on your album is 'Rare'.. Just thought I'd let you know."
