Nicole Scherzinger Held At Gunpoint In Mexico

Man, people are really upset about this Rachel Crowe thing.

While X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger was traveling in Mexico, the singer was held at gunpoint by a local gang. Scherzinger was there shooting a video for Try with Me, and she and her crew decided to drive their SUV through a bunch of rural mountains.

Why not take a segway tour in the jungles of Colombia while you're at it?

"We were held at gunpoint," X-Factor choreographer told Star magazine. "People next to our cars…there were M16s and Berettas!"

The group was luckily released and sent on their way.

NICOLE: It was Paula! Paula told me to go to Deadlock!

GUNMEN: You may go. But you vote for Marcus Canty again, so help me god, we break you legs.

"Nicole cursed me with this trip," Brian said. "It was the craziest adventure ever!"

Man, Brian is hardcore. If I got held at gunpoint in the drug-infested mountains of Mexico, I'd probably need therapy. But this dude's talking about it like he's writing in a yearbook. Member when we got held at gunpoint? lol super crazy adventurz!

Meanwhile, taking a break from her run-ins with drug lords, Nicole has performed songs from Phantom of the Opera. During a Royal Variety gala, Scherzinger sang the title song from the Broadway classic.

The annual event was attended by Princess Anne and filmed last week, but just aired last night on the British channel ITV. There was an introduction from Andrew Lloyd Webber himself.

The former Pussycat doll absolutely killed it onstage, proving she's not just a pretty face. She got pipes.
