Spandexed jailhouse fashions. Gold-plated barbells and buildings. A convenience store and a police department that share Gwen Stefani’s “double-g, but not Gucci” branding. A song that sounds like it was shelved in 1991 after being written for Paula Abdul and MC Skat Kat. Is the video for “The Sweet Escape” really Gwen’s shrewd way of telling the world that she has way too much cash, and she has no idea what to do with herself anymore?
