Nicole Scherzinger delivers another nice spread for the September 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan. Stylist Laury Smith decorates the singer in glitzy golds and pretty pinks for the spread. The shoot comes a week before ITV’s X Factor hits UK screens next Saturday. However, we won’t see Nicole take to the judging panel until the later stages of the competition because a variety of pop singers (Rita Ora, Leona Lewis, etc) served as guest judges for the audition stages.
The singer talks to the magazine about her X Factor role in the UK, getting dumped from X Factor USA, putting more focus on her music, making her long distance relationship with Lewis Hamilton work and her desire for a future family. Read the full interview here. Nicole has also been busy in a London studio recording her brand new studio album with Will.i.am. So far, she has worked with producers RedOne, Darkchild, Dallas Austin, Sean Garret, The Nexus and several others for the project. It’s pretty safe to say ‘Killer Love’ won’t see a release in the States. She need not worry. If the US won’t embrace her music, the UK will and snagging a prestigious judging role here is a very good start.
