No Doubt pull their “Looking Hot” video in fear of racism remarks!

Apparently, No Doubt have debuted their new video for “Looking Hot” and managed to delve into “hot” water right away. Gwen Stefani and Co. apparently offended many Native Americans with their imagery and storyline, allegedly. After a couple of comments landed on the YouTube page of the video, the treatment itself disappeared by the management.

The single is a party-ready anthem that is classic No Doubt.  The video was directed by Sophie Miller, who was behind iconic “Don’t Speak’”and “Underneath It All” videos.

The band formed in 1986 in Anaheim, California and No Doubt haven’t stopped still since.  With five albums and over 45 million sales worldwide, they have notched up 10 Grammy nominations, winning twice [Best Pop Performance 2001 /2005].  Even during their hiatus, band-members Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young were busy with marriage, kids [the band have eight between them] and working on individual projects.  Adrian drummed for Maroon 5, Tony and Tom focused on producing, while Gwen had two hit albums and a fashion line.  Before the band started work on their album they regrouped for 57-date arena tour of the US in 2009.
