Nicole Scherzinger The Latest Pop Star To Break Our Hearts With Struggle With Bulimia, Self-Harm

Nicole Scherzinger Opens Up About Eating Disorder, Self-Harm

In case the recently clusterbleep about Lady Gaga’s weight hadn’t tipped you off already, today’s lady singers feel an immense pressure to be thin. Probably even more so when they have to function as both a vocalist and a burlesque dancer, like former Pussycat Dolls‘ singer Nicole Scherzinger. In her upcoming Behind the Music special airing October 7, the “Don’t Cha” singer opens up about the disordered eating and self-harm that have accompanied her pop stardom. As you can imagine, it’s pretty brutal.

“It’s embarrassing. I never spoke about it. Like I said, I never want to play a victim, and I never wanted my family to hear about things from me because I think it would break their heart, you know,” Nicole reveals. “I guess it was like my addiction, right? I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction. It’s like when I got off stage, I was on this high, and I’d come back to my room and I’d be alone, so I would just do things. My bulimia was my addiction; hurting myself was my addiction.” Ugh…we feel genuinely guilty for liking “Buttons” while Nicole was going through all this. We know that kind of random guilt doesn’t help anyone, but that’s just how we feel.

Nicole Scherzinger Crushing On Halle Berry Despite BF Lewis Hamilton

Nicole Scherzinger

There’s a whole lot of Nicole Scherzinger in the latest issue of Maxim magazine. The Dancing with the Stars winner graces the cover in a completely drenched, hence see-through, white tank top over a grey bikini. Woohoo, wet tee-shirt contest (she wins)!

And even though the Pussycat Doll is dating the deelish Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton, Halle Berry‘s considerable charms have proved too much for her to resist. Scherzinger admits she totally has a “girl crush” on her saying, “She’s just naturally gorgeous…I love her smile. Wait, I sound like a dude; I’ve got to snap out of it!”

On another note, she reveals the truth behind her macho F-1 BF, whom she reunited with after a temp split in January. They’ve been dating since November 2007, FYI.  He’s completely chicken, especially when it comes to her driving. She explained, “He’s more afraid when he’s with me and I’m driving than he is during a race. I guess it’s appropriate that I just did a song with Slash and Alice Cooper called ‘Baby Can’t Drive’.” Nice plug there. Nicole!
