How To Defend Your Theft, Lack Of Originality, Ripping Off Of Others

In one of Stefani's columns for V Magazine, she subtly addresses the buffet of accusations that she steals ideas, fashion and creativity from others.

"There is no chicken or egg. It's molecular. Cells give birth to cells. To put it more bluntly, the Hussein Chalayan vessel I wore at the Grammys wasn't inspired by a chicken. It was stolen from an egg. But the transformation, the context, and the approach taken to reinterpret the meaning of birth and rebirth in terms of fame on a fucking red carpet — this is what creates the modernity of the statement. The past undergoes mitosis, becoming the originality of the future."

Here's the entire defend my theft column. 

I love how Stefani formats her column like a memo and she copies it to bullies.  Screw you Gaga.  Now people that her call her out on her theft are bullies.  Nice manipulative tactic to deflect people from your career transgressions Stefani.  It doesn't work.  If Madonna, the real Queen of Pop, can see right through your shenanigans, you can bet your life many, many others do too. You've been accused of copying this or that artist for some time now and people aren't pulling this out of their asses so put whatever spin you want on it honey if it makes you feel better.

Stefani also thinks that if she steals from underground artists, less mainstream artists like Peaches for example, that people wouldn't notice. Case in point, Peaches' tit dress.
