Nicole Scherzinger in ‘awesome new chapter of life’
HollywoodNews.com: Pop siren Nicole Scherzinger is getting a special kick out of fashion mags and websites following her as a trendsetter these days. “For a long time, people only saw me as a tacky Pussycat Doll who only wore leopard print,” she candidly points out. “Once people have a certain view in their minds, it’s kind of hard to get past that. Wearing ladylilke clothes I love and feel good in — to get positive response from that is really fun. I have a great team of stylists.”
Her attention in the fashion world is just one indication that Scherzinger is at the top of the celebrity hot list right now. There’s also her first solo album, “Killer Love” coming out this fall, generating heat — and her latest reality role as an “X Factor” judge alongside Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid. The Fox show debuts Sept. 21, but she’s already judged competitors in six cities and gone through a grueling “boot camp” experience. Contestants faced a series of tough challenges — and more than 125 were eliminated in just five days.
“That was the hardest part — letting people go,” says Nicole.
She had her “X Factor” baptism as a guest judge on the U.K. version of the show. “I wasn’t able to say ‘No.’ I’d say, ‘It’s not a ‘No,’ it’s just a ‘not now.’ I empathized with all the peformers,” she recalls. She’s saying “No” now, though Nicole says she still feels empathetic.
