Nicole Scherzinger was just as shocked as us when she found out she would no longer be a part of The X Factor family. But, the singer says she has "no regrets" and is looking forward to her future.
“What happened? Well, all I know is that I gave 110 percent to that show,” Nicole tells Access Hollywood. “I know everybody’s talking about it, they’re saying good, bad, they love me or hate me, but the one thing you can’t say is that I didn’t give it my all.”
Nicole, fellow mentor Paula Abdul and host Steve Jones were let go of Simon Cowell's talent competition after a debut season of ups and downs. And although Nicole admits she gave the show all of her time and energy, she realizes this is the way television works.
“I had a wonderful experience on the show,” Nicole explains. “I loved being a part of my X Factor family. Nothing could obviously prepare me for everything I had to go through, all the emotions and stuff, but I have no regrets. I’ve always believed in never looking back and just moving forward and I’ve got an amazing year to look forward to.”
Nicole will be headlining a European tour and has a role in Will Smith's highly anticipated flick, Men in Black 3. She even admits she's going to try and fit in some musical theater gigs!
“I’m gonna get back to theater this year, some more movies and my album is coming out in the U.S. — my Killer Love album, so I’m putting the finishing touches on it.”
Nicole's got a lot of great things to look forward to and we're excited for her future plans!
