Why we love Nicole Scherzinger
Not the kind of music you might expect from a girl who grew up in Kentucky – where are the banjos? – but Nicole Scherzinger is an exotic beauty who loves surprising us, having tried everything from rock to pop to, most successfully, pulsating r 'n' b. A former winner of the US version of Popstars, Nicole Scherzinger has long seemed destined for the big time, but it was as the leading light in "burlesque" American troupe the Pussycat Dolls that she really made it, thanks in no small part to four minutes of musical sex called Don't Cha. Her signature move is the booty shake, which may just have something to do with her mum, who was once a pro hula dancer.
Having outgrown her lead singer status and branched out solo, Nicole Scherzinger went in search of the ultimate A-list celebrity’s accessory, another A-list celebrity. She found him in the shape of 2008 F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton, who was obviously just like every other bloke and never channel hopped past a music channel playing a Pussycat Dolls video. In 2010 the F1 Wags rivalry moved a step closer to home as Jenson Button brought Jessica Michibata in to the McLaren garage, but so far the pair have failed to scrap. Sadly.
Nicole Scherzinger's solo career didn’t take off at quite the same speed though, with her debut album Her Name is Nicole being shelved after numerous delays. Still, you can’t keep a good cat down, and Nicole Scherzinger confirmed in 2010 that she was working on another solo album for release in 2012. In the meantime, Nicole Scherzinger has found time to present The X Factor and jam with Prince and 50 Cent. Most excitingly, Nicole Scherzinger will be adding 'Film Star' to her CV in 2012, when she appears in Men In Black III.
