Gwen Stefani is on fire right now. She's spent the last year coaching young talent on The Voice while simultaneously working on her soon-to-be released album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and she's even found love again with Blake Shelton.  

But with her recent success comes some really heartbreaking news: Stefani's No Doubt bandmates have indefinitely replaced her—with a dude. 

As Stefani relaunches her solo career, reports that No Doubt's male members, Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young, are saying goodbye to their beloved frontwoman in favour of working with Davey Havok—the lead singer of hardcore screamo band, AFI.

So, who's going to sing "Just a Girl" now?

The guys have already recorded an LP and are reportedly shopping it around to labels. No word yet on if their music has found a home or if they'll adopt a different name for their newly formed quartet. Fingers crossed they'll choose a new moniker—because a Gwen Stefani-less No Doubt would just feel weird, no doubt.
