Nicole Scherzinger Talks About Her Hectic Career

Marie Claire

Nicole Scherzinger may be one of the busiest stars in the music industry. In the new issue of Marie Claire, Scherzinger opens up about her hectic lifestyle with the upcoming season of The X Factor and her debut solo album Killer Love.

Scherzinger's work ethic is something that she says has been with her throughout her life. She previously won Dancing With The Stars and Popstars which landed her a spot in Eden's Crush, an all girl pop group which jump started her musical career.

"I've been working toward this my whole life," Scherzinger says. "This album is my dream. Everything is timing. My music is the driving engine and The X Factor is where I can give back to the contestants – pay it forward, since I got my start on reality shows. I'm ready to take it all on."

Speaking on her role as judge on Cowell's The X Factor, Scherzinger says, "I'm the luckiest person to get a front-row ticket to the Simon and Paula show. This whole thing has felt like a roller-coaster ride."
