Orange County Girl Gwen Stefani was a culture vulture yet again as the ‘Rocksteady Boss’ in Jamaican reggae rapper Sean Paul’s Light My Fire music video, which dropped Wednesday.

The 52-year-year-old mother-of-three – who relies on hairstylist Danilo Dixon – put her platinum-blonde locks into a partial updo with waist-length twist extensions popular for people with Afro-textured hair.

Gwen certainly stood out as the only Caucasian invited to a smoke-filled house party and BBQ in the 49-year-old Grammy winner’s video, which also featured Jamaican dancehall singer Shenseea.

Stefani – who relies on styling duo Rob Zangardi & Mariel Haenn – flaunted her phenomenal 5ft6in figure in a long-sleeved fishnet top and stockings beneath a colorful corset high-low dress.

The life-long ska fan – whose eldest son is named after the Jamaican capital Kingston – sang: ‘Baby won’t you light my fire / Can you take me higher? / When you rubbin’ on me / You really spark my flame.’

‘Light My Fire is an epic dream come true. I’ve been a fan of Gwen Stefani forever and Shenseea – I am so proud of all she’s accomplished in such a short time,’ Sean said in a statement.

‘Light My Fire is a big bad lover’s rock song and we had to represent it with a big bad video. We went retro on the attire in the video and basically getting ready to party and some lovers rocking. It’s a vibe we hope everyone gets when they listen to the track – feel good and party lovers rock style.’

'Me and you baby set yuh body ablaze!' Gwen certainly stood out as the only Caucasian invited to a smoke-filled house party and BBQ in the 49-year-old Grammy winner's video, which also featured Jamaican dancehall singer Shenseea (M)

Stefani was last called out for being a notorious culture vulture in 2012 when her band No Doubt was forced to pull its ‘cowboys and Indians-themed’ music video for Looking Hot over racial insensitivity towards Native Americans.

Between 2004-2006, the GXVE Beauty founder hired four back-up dancers of Japanese descent to be her silent ‘posse of Harajuku girls’ which comedian Margaret Cho likened to ‘blackface’ or a ‘minstrel show.’

‘If we didn’t buy and sell and trade our cultures in, we wouldn’t have so much beauty, you know?’ Gwen – who also used to wear Indian bindis – defended herself in Paper Magazine last year.

‘We learn from each other, we share from each other, we grow from each other. And all these rules are just dividing us more and more.’
