However, the double chart topper – whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - has been told by her record company to take time out if she wants to avoid burn out. It's suggesting a month-long break in August in order to give her the chance to recover from the recent heavy workload.
"Stefani has been working relentlessly since last summer," a source told the Sun. "She has criss-crossed the globe on numerous occasions…and the pressure has now started to get to her."
The cancellation of the singer's August commitments will provide a welcome break for the 23-year-old. As well as playing Glastonbury in June, she's got a series of own concerts lined up and will also be supporting Take That on four of their stadium gigs
