Nicole Scherzinger (June 29, 1978) is an American recording artist, actress and television personality. After reaching one-hit wonder success with girl group Eden's Crush, she signed with Interscope Records in 2003 as a member of the Pussycat Dolls, a burlesque troupe turned-recording act. During her time as lead singer, Scherzinger generated controversy concerning the emphasis of her role in the group. The group established themselves as a prominent girl group with the release of their debut album, PCD (2005) which spawned the number one hits "Don't Cha" and "Stickwitu". A hiatus saw the cancellation of a solo album.
From 2007 to 2010, Scherzinger was in a relationship with two-time Formula 1 World Champion, Lewis Hamilton. In January 2010, it was announced that Hamilton and Scherzinger had split up. The couple reunited until another split in 2011 due to conflicting work schedules. They reportedly reunited again in January 2012, but by July 2013 they had once more ended the relationship but got back together again in March 2014. In February 2015, Scherzinger and Hamilton split up again. Scherzinger and Hamilton, both practicing Roman Catholics, went on a pilgrimage to see the Holy Grail and also met with Pope Francis for a blessing on their engagement in 2014.
In 2012, Scherzinger publicly revealed her eight-year struggle with bulimia, explaining how during her time in the Pussycat Dolls, "I just hated myself. I was in a group but I never felt so alone in my life... I never did drugs, but hurting myself was my addiction. The music is what saved me. That's the only thing I can trust." Paula Abdul applauded Scherzinger for overcoming her bulimia addiction.
