On Saturday night, Olivia Rodrigo made a surprise appearance on stage with No Doubt during their 2024 Coachella set in Indio, California. Gwen Stefani and Olivia sang together, backed by band members Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont, and Adrian Young. Gwen welcomed Olivia to the stage, and the Guts Tour performer was wearing an “I [heart] ND” tank top in reference to the band—she's a huge fan, too.

In fact, Olivia wore another shirt during her first show on her Guts Tour that read “I’m Just a Girl,” in reference to No Doubt’s popular song. In 2022, she even performed a cover “I’m Just a Girl” during her Sour Tour.

Gwen was wearing a nostalgic ‘90s style two-piece in plaid, with glamorous makeup including blue eyeliner and silver gems adorning her forehead.

“Hey Olivia Rodrigo, why do girls like me and you always want the bad boys,” Gwen asked Olivia, adding, “The damaged, the stupid, dumb boys!”

Together, they sang No Doubt’s hit “Bathwater.”

In an interview with American Songwriter, Olivia called Gwen a “true artist.”

“Gwen’s ability to evolve and explore different styles of music, songwriting and aesthetic while still remaining true to herself is incredibly inspiring,” Olivia said. “To me, she’s a prime example of an artist who defies stereotypes and preconceived boundaries and just makes stuff that she thinks is cool. If that’s not a true artist, I don’t know what is.”

In another profile with Nylon, Olivia said she bought No Doubt’s 2000 album Return of Saturn when she was only 15, and it hugely influenced her.

“Gwen sang about being a woman moving about this world in detail that I had never before heard put to music,” said Olivia. “She unapologetically sings about things ranging from wanting to make out with someone to fantasizing about having a husband and kids. There’s so much heart in every word she says, and every song feels like it’s ripped from the diary of the coolest girl you know.”
