Gwen Stefani has said she is Japanese in a recent interview and then doubled down on her words.

He travelled between the US and Japan a lot, introducing his daughter to Japanese culture, which she very much enjoyed.

She said: "That was my Japanese influence and that was a culture that was so rich with tradition, yet so futuristic [with] so much attention to art and detail and discipline and it was fascinating to me."

The  explained that when she travelled to the Harajuku district of Tokyo she said to herself 'my God, I'm Japanese and I didn't know it', telling the interviewer 'I am, you know'.

Describing herself as a 'super fan' of Japanese culture, she said there was an 'innocence' involved with her relationship to it, saying it 'doesn't feel right' that people would criticise her for 'being a fan of something beautiful'.
