Gavin Rossdale: Kingston's A Bully!
Former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale took home “Rock Rebirth of the Year” at US Weekly’s Hot Hollywood Party at New York City’s Skylight on Tuesday.
The 42-year-old husband of Gwen Stefeni talked to JustJared.com about his upcoming tour, what Gwen and Kingston have in store for Halloween and starting up a foundation to start giving back. Read on!
GR: Great site, Jared. Great site! Congratulations. And great shoes!
JJ: Thank you! You and your wife wear great shoes all the time. Congratulations on your Rock award! So how does it feel to win Rock Rebirth of the Year?
GR: As soon as I find out what it means, I will ecstatic. (laughs) You know me, it’s great. A win’s a win, so it’s good to be recognized. I don’t know, you bring out records and most of the time no one knows you bring them out.
JJ: Are you currently still touring?
GR: Yeah, I’m about to go start I think in December. I start…a lot next year. This year’s all promo and how the way it all works, there’s so much you have to do to set it up. There’s more on the record I still want to share.

JJ: Halloween is coming up. Do you and Gwen have any Halloween plans yet?
GR: Yeah, her brother is having a party, so we’re going to that. I’m playing that night and then we’re gonna go off and I don’t know. She’s really good at that stuff. I’m English so we’re too uptight to be good at that stuff. I’d like dress as doctor and nurse but covered in blood. That’s great. So anything to do with blood would probably be good.
JJ: Are Kingston and Zuma going to be be dressing up?
GR: Yea, Kingston has like three outfits. He’s got a rhino, a tiger and I think an elephant, so he’s got to choose between them. We keep rotating them. He’s got style like his Mom.
J: Have Kingston and Zuma started fighting yet?
GR: It’s mainly a one-sided fight right now because Zuma’s pretty defenseless. But he’s not a small baby, so I think that Kingston’s got a couple years left and then he’s gonna get in trouble.
JJ: Do you and Gwen plan to start your own foundation to give back?
GR: Yeah, that would be good, wouldn’t it? We have talked about that. It’s kind of a leap of faith to have your own foundation because you gotta be super successful unless it’s a really small foundation. I did this event last week called The Lily Claire Foundation and I played the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. I played like a few songs there and it’s such a good feeling when you do something like that that isn’t about you so. I’ll tell Gwen that you suggested it.
JJ: Thank you much. It was great meeting you!
