Nicole looks amazing in the Mark Cant-photographed spread, and she touches on everything from her audition for Popstars, to turning down a chance to work with Calvin Harris.

Check out some excerpts below! 

On auditioning for the Popstars singing competition:

“I was so theater at the time. I was like ‘I am not going to be a Spice Girl.’ That wasn’t me. I mean I’m a Spice Girls fan now, but at the time I only wore black and I was Goth. I would have been Goth Spice. Ethnic Chanting Spice, that’s who I thought I was.”

On her mom talking her into finally auditioning:

“I brought my little package that I’d put together with my pictures and I’d made my own home music video. I was on it. I gave them my pack and I sang [Whitney’s ‘I Will Always Love You’} for them and the rest is history. That brought me to Los Angeles.”

In regards to rejecting the offer to sing Calvin Harris’ “We Found Love”:

“I passed on ‘We Found Love’. I got the demo of that song and I was busy at the time.”
