You wouldn't think that chart-topper, Gwen Stefani enjoyed her first taste of the limelight almost four DECADES ago, would you?
Yes, you read that right - she's actually a staggering 54-years-old.
That's because the ex-No Doubt singer is - in the politest possibly way - considerably older than her incredibly fresh-faced appearance and edgy eye for fashion implies.
"Gwen Stefani is either ageless or freeze-dried," one X - formerly known as Twitter - user said on her 53rd birthday last year.
Another penned: "Gwen Stefani looks ageless. She's looked the same since 'Hollaback Girl'. Werk it."
A third wrote: "Wish I had Gwen Stefani's genetics #ageless."
'The Sweet Escape' hit-maker has in fact addressed her youthful appearance in public before, however.
Appearing on The Late Late Show with presenter James Corden during an episode of Carpool Karaoke back in 2016, Stefani explained how after her life 'blew up' she 'started falling in love'.
In response to Corden comparing her to Benjamin Button - who ages backwards and gets younger as time passes - she continued: "Then I wrote a whole record about that. So that's [...] what the facelift is.
"I'm writing music about happiness and truth."
It's not only Stefani's appearance which is youthful either. Her voice and songs were noted by one user as transporting them back in time to when they were young and at college.
"Love Gwen...spent so much of my younger years listening to 'No Doubt' on repeat," another wrote.
A third noted how not only seeing Stefani, but George Clooney and Julia Roberts singing 'Hollaback Girl' makes the episode a 'classic [...] time and time again'.
And a final user said: "I absolutely LOVE Carpool Karaoke! These late night talk hosts have the best job ever! I know it’s not all fun and games and not perfect but I’m sure 95 percent of it is!
"Btw Gwen and Julia haven’t aged at all!! Actually everyone in the car looked fabulous!"
While 'falling in love', 'happiness and truth' is all well and good for helping maintain Stefani's youthful looks, some of us aren't quite so lucky in love.
I was hoping for the singer to detail some specific cream or oil which can be used to blur the frown lines on my forehead, but instead, it looks like I'll just have to get re-downloading Tinder or Hinge.
