Nicole Scherzinger is known for being the lead of the Pussycast Dolls, and now an official judge on America's X-Factor, but she is also known for being one hot tamale!
The 33-year-old recently covered South Africa's Cosmopolitan magazine, shot by photographer Pavel Havlicek and she looked better than ever.
In the interview with the magazine, she talks about body image, dieting, and even her place in the Pussycat Dolls:
On whether she's always been body-confident:"I was so awkward and lanky, and only felt comfortable when I escaped to my room to listen to Whitney Houston and sing at the top of my voice."
On whether she and Cheryl Cole are enemies:"I have to consciously distance myself from what is said in the tabloids, because I'm highly sensitive to that stuff. How do they come up with it? I think they were trying to start a rivalry between us. But it's all silly and, at the end of the day, you just have to laugh about it because it's not real."
On her averseness to dieting:"I don't believe in diets very much. I have tried every one out there and I've realized they don't work. It's more about having a consistent diet in everyday life. I don't believe in depriving myself of anything. Balance, moderation and staying active - that is what works."
On the standing of the Pussycat Dolls:"I'll tell you as much as I know. I've never left the Pussycat Dolls. I'm still the lead singer of the group. I do know that a few girls have left to pursue solo careers. I wish them only the best. I'm happy for them."
We love us some Nicole!
