But when Gwen Stefani traveled to the Emirate of Dubai to play a concert at the opening of a new hotel there Monday, she made sure she had free time before.
Gwen, 48, posted an Instagram photo Sunday of herself in the desert with her hair and most of her face covered up, shielding herself from the dust.

"#culture': When Gwen Stefani jetted into the Emirate of Dubai to play a concert at the opening of a new hotel there Monday, she made sure she had free time before
Her eyes were visible, and her irises appeared red - though it was unclear whether this was the result of the camera, a filter or contact lenses.
She captioned: '#dubai @renhotels #adventure #culture,' adding emoji of a heart and of a camel before closing out: '#desert gx'.
There were, indeed, sands that could be seen stretching out behind her.

With a pal! Gwen's Instagram Story showed her escapades around town, including a visit to Tola Perfumery at Villa 515?
The songstress was shown some of the wares available in bottles. Filming one of the containers, she cooed: 'I love you, little smell!'
She's also filmed herself in a car, the view of the Emirati trees outside whizzing by as she listened to a bit of music.
It appeared she wanted a reminder of America, as she was playing country singer Chris Stapleton's new record A Simple Song.
Sitting in the car after it had stopped, she said: 'Okay, n ow? we're in the desert, and we're gonna go on a little tour.'
?Beaming! Gwen looked like she was having a wonderful time in the Emirati city
The wind whipped her blonde hair around as she stepped out onto the sand.?
A man proffered her a choice of two head coverings to wear.
One of them was black - and was the one she had posted to her regular Instagram page - and the other was a red and white ghutrah.
The man informed her that the black one was 'for the ladies' whereas 'red is for the boys,' and Gwen decided on the black.
In video, she showed herself having the black cloth wrapped around her head and face, informing her audience via caption that this was 'For the dust.'
So many options! The songstress was shown some of the wares available in bottles
Thus accoutered, she and a group of other travelers, including her hairstylist Danilo - as well as their guides - clambered into a couple of Land Rovers and set off into the sands.
They went 'to see a falcon show,' Gwen explained, 'and I love birds.'
She offered her Instagram following a glimpse at the spellbinding animals - both perched and airborne - durign the 'show.'
'You see that pretty bird?' she said, showing the camera a falcon as it sat on her arm.
Luxury: Gwen and a group, including her hairstylist Danilo, rode Range Rovers into the desert with guides and dined there at night in a gorgeous tent
Come nightfall, she showed off the luxuriant desert tent they would be dining in, with tables set up for the purpose.
'We're in the desert still, at night. There's Danilo,' she said, turning the camera to show her hairstylist Danilo sitting nearby.
'We're gonna have a meal,' she said. 'Danilo, hold up one of those - those bread things.'
Her coiffeur complied, explaining that what he was holding was 'roti,'?
In repose: Shortly thereafter, Gwen filmed a few camels sitting on the sand at night, fitted with muzzles and saddles
'Yum, bread,' she breathed.
Shortly thereafter, Gwen filmed a few camels sitting on the sand at night, fitted with muzzles and saddles.
'Wow, they're so cute. I can't even believe how cute they are,' said she. 'That's craziness.'
Not long after, Gwen got to actually mount one of the camels, carefully holding the reins to ensure her safety.
Look at those faces: The muzzle came off as well
She's also uploaded video of a couple of the men who had accompanied them dancing for the travelers' entertainment.
Local music played, and the men spun what appeared to be metal batons. Soon after, the entertainers were singing and drumming as well.??
Gwen has since also posted video of herself in the elevator of Dubai's Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world - , then feeling the breeze on its observation deck.
Having a blast: Gwen reclined across a long cushion draped over a floral rug
