Cover Girls: Nicole Scherzinger Does Vegas Magazine (Photos)

- By Bossip Staff

Nicole Scherzinger is on the cover of Vegas Magazine where she discusses her new album, X-Factor and Simon, money, and more:

Born in Honolulu to humble roots, the closest show business connection that introverted Nicole had was that her mother was a hula dancer and her grandmother a local singer. Then the family relocated to Louisville, Kentucky, when her mother remarried, to her German-born stepfather. “I didn’t look like anyone else there,” she says. “My dad had adopted me, and I didn’t look like his family either. My nickname in school was ‘crybaby.’ It must have been in the stars that I would be an artist because I was very sensitive and obviously wore my heart on my sleeve.”

In fact, one of Scherzinger’s first splurges after finding success was to buy her parents a home in Hawaii. “I love and appreciate money,” she says frankly. “I saw how much my family stressed and how much I stressed growing up not coming from money. It takes a lot of stress off of you knowing that if you get into an accident, you won’t have to wonder how you are going to take care of this. I don’t take anything for granted.”
