With the band's comeback right around the corner, No Doubt's Gwen Stefani covers the September issue of Harper's Bazaar -- where she opens up about her grueling workouts.

“I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous,” she tells the mag about her famous six-pack abs. "There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself!”

The mother of two hits the gym as much as her busy schedule allows, she says. "But it’s more for my brain than it is for my body.”

It's not just her abs and voice that Gwen's known for though, she's also popular for her unique sense of style.

"I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up,” says Gwen. “I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you.”

As for why she loves wearing makeup: "I like to make my husband like me more,” she says, laughing, “and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”
