Fans struggle to recognise Gwen Stefani at music awards
Gwen Stefani’s Instagram posts from the Academy of Country Music Awards got her fans and critics alike talking — well, debating.
The issue was whether the pop star looked like herself or not.
Many of the commenters suggested that Gwen was wearing too much makeup or speculated that she had undergone a cosmetic procedure or two.
They pleaded with her to ‘chill with the lips’ and deemed her ‘unrecognisable’.
One wrote, “Gwen you are so awesome the way you are. Of course you can do what you wish, but those that wish you well, think there is loveliness in a more natural look.”
Another asked the ‘Rich Girl’ singer to please not be mad that she prefers her other looks.
Still, Gwen got a lot of love from fans, too. They called her ‘gorgeous’ and ‘always on point.’
Gwen and her country beau Blake Shelton seemed pretty happy about their evening, despite the naysayers.
After skipping the red carpet, they spent the night beaming mostly from their seats in the audience, Blake took the stage to perform at one point, while she cheered him on.

The two narrowly missed an awkward moment when Shelton’s ex-wife Miranda Lambert performed.
She reportedly adjusted the lyrics she sings in her song “Little Red Wagon,” from “I live in Oklahoma” to “I got the hell out of Oklahoma.”
Of course, Oklahoma is where Lambert lived when she and Shelton were married from 2011 to 2015. Stefani and Shelton reportedly left their seats before the performance.
They were probably off gushing about one another in interviews.
