Gwen Stefani’s son, Kingston Rossdale, channeled 1990’s alt-rock vibes releasing a music video cover of The Smashing Pumpkins hit “1979.” There’s no doubt visions of Stefani and father Gavin Rossdale shine through the young artist’s rhythm and moves.
The Pumpkins’ original music video focused on a group of misfit teenagers crashing a suburban party. Kingston goes a different direction, drawing attention to his hot pink shirt and violet tipped locks. Occasionally, Rossdale falls prey to whimsy and runs away from the camera in slow motion strides across Blake Shelton’s new $13 million Encino, CA mansion, looking back with a smile.
Rossdale’s video premiere’s his latest YouTube channel Kingston Rossdale Covers, where the artist posts weekly covers of popular songs. Hopefully a Post Malone cover will be in the works, after Kingston posted a picture to Instagram with Posty, last December.
Kingston’s musical upbringing combines the ska punk flavors of mother Gwen’s group No Doubt, and post-grunge grit of father Gavin’s band Bush. The couple met back in 1995 while touring with the Goo Goo Dolls and cemented their 90’s love on New Year’s Day 2002 with an engagement. They had three children together including their oldest, Kingston.
Eventually Gwen and Gavin had a falling out and divorced in 2015. That same year, rumors swirled around Stefani and Voice co-star Blake Shelton’s relationship. The couple have been dating ever since.
Gwen and Blake are busy with their own musical collaborations. The Academy of Country Music recently announced the couple will perform at the star-studded 55th annual ACM Awards, September 16.
