NICOLE SCHERZINGER opened up about her past with bulimia and self-harm, revealing that they were her addiction.
Whoa. Who knew?
Naturally, many thought Nicole Scherzinger sang, danced and looked too perfect to be suffering anything serious and that she belonged in Hollywood. As it turns out, she did share a common celebrity trait—she also battled bulimia and her tendency to hurt herself.
In the continuation of her very revealing VH1 “Behind the Music” special (to be aired on October 7) where she previously revealed that she sang most of her multi-platinum pop group The Pussycat Dolls‘ studio album, Nicole spoke of her inner devils during her years as a “doll”:
“I just hated myself. I hate myself. I really was so disgusted with myself, and so embarrassed. I felt so alone. I was in a group, and I never felt so alone in my life.”
“I guess it was like my addiction, right? I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction.”
The sexy singer-dancer continued:
“It’s like when I got off stage, I was on this high, and I’d come back to my room and I’d be alone, so I would just do things. My bulimia was my addiction. Hurting myself was my addiction.”
Like that wasn’t enough of a revelation, she added:
“I did it everyday for, like, years. Every time I had a second to be alone, I was doing something to myself. You get, like, blisters on your hands or scars on your hands, and I’d try to hide those. I think the girls could tell.”
Poor Nicole… We are nothing but glad that she got through all of that! It just speaks of how strong she truly is, doesn’t it?
What do you think of Nicole‘s revelations?
