Nicole Scherzinger is having a very busy year, from being a judge on the hotly anticipated US version of “The X Factor” to a new album coming out this fall, expect to see more of the former Pussycat Doll in the rest of 2011.

Her new album, “Killer Love” will drop this fall and features collaborations with 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and even Sting, and many of the tracks are produced by Lady Gaga’s brainchild, RedOne. 


So what makes this solo album different...Nicole Scherzinger is having a very busy year, from being a judge on the hotly anticipated US version of “The X Factor” to a new album coming out this fall, expect to see more of the former Pussycat Doll in the rest of 2011.

Her new album, “Killer Love” will drop this fall and features collaborations with 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and even Sting, and many of the tracks are produced by Lady Gaga’s brainchild, RedOne. 


So what makes this solo album different than her stuff with the Pussycat Dolls? “It’s a very empowering album about heartbreak and love and being lost in love and losing yourself to love. It’s empowering because it’s coming out of that process and finding yourself again and your strength in that,” she gushed to Hollyscoop before her performance on So You think You can Dance?, “Its an eclectic album but it shows different sides of my personality."

So I’m guessing her Pussycat Doll days of songs titled “Loosen Up My Buttons” are over? “I went a little deeper with this album and I just hope fans rock out to it and feel free to it and love it,” she reveals.

Watching American Idol, Simon Cowell never seemed like an easy person to work with, but Nicole says he’s unbelievable. “Well, Simon is very blessed that he gets to work with me and he still thanks me everyday and I just tell him ‘You’re welcome, Simon,” she jokes.

Nicole gushes over Simon and Paula and even L.A. Reid, the judge nobody really knows about, “No, they’re amazing, they’re unbelievable and so is L.A. Reid. He’s a force to be reckoned with.”

Nicole is dating Formula 1 racing champ, Lewis Hamilton, but says she’s too busy with work to consider a wedding. “[I’m busy with] work right now. I’m very happy where I am with my relationship right now….I’m grateful to have my album coming out, “Killer Love” and to be able to have a new job on ‘X-Factor.’”
