The United States of… Gwen? Could be, if you’re into summer fun big-time—like Gwenation is. “My first name is Gwendolyn. So that got shortened to Gwen.  But when we’re in the studio writing and recording songs, I literally lose myself to where it’s just my world and I want everybody to come into that world,” the Detroit R&B diva, whose debut single is titled Ain’t Got a Chance, tells Fresh Perspectives Radio host Angie The Rambunctious One and co-host Jai of her unique moniker. “But we couldn’t say ‘Gwen’s World.’ So we put ‘nation’ on the end of it—with one ‘n’—and now it’s like, it’s the nation of Gwen, let’s party, let’s rock out together.”
