Nicole Scherzinger Speaks To GIANT Magazine

Pussycat Dolls front-woman Nicole Scherzinger features in the latest issue of GIANT magazine. She opened up about, among other things, her solo journey and her portrayal by the media:

On going solo:
“It’s just one continuous journey. I started out just making music that showed the other sides of me. I am still exploring that. I don’t think I have found any definite number of songs that says, ‘This is it; this says who I am as a solo artist coming out.’ I haven’t found that yet. I am continuously being challenged and inspired. It’s safe because it’s not out yet, but it’s also scary because you really want to challenge yourself as an artist, to take risks. You want to do things that you’re not used to doing. I got to work with a lot of people that I wouldn’t have expected to work with. I was in the studio the other night, and I was like, ‘I didn’t even know I could do this. This is great!’”

On media portrayal:
“I don’t think they show my story. I don’t think they show who I am. Sometimes, when I read my stories, I am not interested So why are other people going to be interested? I know that here is more stuff in here. There are more stories and more interesting things to talk about than what lies on the surface. When I read stories about myself, it just seems so one-dimensional, kind of shallow, I think.”

Though I’ve not always had the kindest of words about Nicole, I actually respect her a little more after reading this; she’s being real to herself, which is what makes people connect with an artist. If only her awful songs weren’t so…well…awful.

Timbaland – ‘Scream’ (Ft. Nicole Scherzinger & Keri Hilson) Video

The video for Timbaland’s latest single ‘Scream’ premiered yesterday on Yahoo Music. Despite producing several hits from his ‘Shock Value’ album, the videos for them have tended to be…well…pretty underwhelming. However, there is no denying, the racy video ‘Scream’ breaks the mould – easily standing as the producer/rapper’s best solo(ish) effort to date. Great song and even better video. Nicole Scherzinger is displaying a certain ‘pizazz’ she has yet to incorporate into her own solo career…she was getting it – as was Keri.

Timbaland w/ Nicole Scherzinger & Keri Hilson On The Set Of ‘Scream’ Video

Check out this behind the scenes look at Timbaland’s new video ‘Scream’, which features Nicole Scherzinger and Keri Hilson:

I’m real psyched about this song getting the single treatment. I’ve long been a fan of the track since hearing Timbo’s ‘Shock Value’ LP. On a side note, that has to be the most personality the oft-wooden Nicole Scherzinger has shown on camera before…a refreshing change. Be on the look out for the video in weeks ahead.

Nicole Scherzinger Performs ‘Baby Love’ On GMTV

Nicole Scherzinger is still trying to push those singles/album of hers; this time here in the UK on daytime show GMTV. Providing that the song is trash (sorry, call me a hater or whatever), she did a great job…lipsynching. At this point, any hope of the album being any good is lost (for me), but she always has the Pussycat Dolls to fall back on, I guess.

Nicole Scherzinger Performs ‘Baby Love’ On Pepsi Smash

Pussycat Doll front-woman, Nicole Scherzinger, recently performed her new single ‘Baby Love’ on Pepsi Smash. Blah. Sorry but the song is straight garbage. What’s worst is that her label really seem to be hoping for this song to do big things, so much so that they are billing it as the album’s ‘first official single’. I guess they are hoping we forget about the major flop that was ‘Whatever You Like’.

Nicole Scherzinger Performs ‘Whatever You Like’ On Pepsi Smash

With the release of her album ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ drawing nearer (November 6th), Nicole Scherzinger is doing the promo rounds in support of the project – this time hitting up Yahoo’s Pepsi Smash. The Pussycat Doll front-woman performed the album’s lead single ‘Whatever You Like’. Though the song is still the pits, I did like the performance. It’s a shame the material she is putting out isn’t up to par as she has the potential to be big; judging by the little hype surrounding the project, it seems many feel the same way.

2007 MTV VMA: Performances

{Content Removed As Requested}

Terrible. This basically sums up 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. I was already sceptical about the show considering the so-so line-up of performers, but it was a complete mess.

Setting the tone for the night was opener Britney Spears. With all that’s gone on, I was hoping she’d silence the naysayers, but this was a complete and utter and trainwreck. A combination of poor lipsyching, stiff choreography and an outfit that revealed her out of shape body, Britney’s performance will no doubt have many saying her career is over. It will be if she doesn’t find a way to redeem herself from that mess.

Most of the night’s other performers offered little of interest. Although I must give Rihanna props for doing her thing during Chris Brown’s so-so performance and later on during ‘Shut Up & Drive’.

The show wasn’t all bad, though. Alicia Keys’ performance was a standout. She nailed ‘No One’, making me like the song all the more. I wasn’t initially all that hyped for her performance, but she was definitely the highlight of what was a mediocre night (at best).

MTV really need to step it up and the show has been on a downward spiral for years. I was thinking it was all award shows, but the BET Awards this year really showed out – beating this mess hands down. SMH…

New Song: Nicole Scherzinger – ‘Baby Love’

Damn! It’s like Nicole is everywhere this week. Yet another track from her album ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ has surfaced. Produced by Will.i.am, ‘Baby Love’ has been confirmed as the official 2nd single and not ‘Super Villain’ – as first reported. The pop-friendly track is reminiscent of the Pussycat Dolls ‘Stickwitchu’ – only difference is that this is a lot worse. With it’s infantile lyrics and overall ‘too sweet, it’s sickening’ vibe, the track just isn’t doing it for me. Judging from the tracks I’ve heard so far, Nicole is really looking to emulate the Pussycat Dolls mould with radio friendly Pop/R&B tracks -but so far she’s fallen short – way short.

Nicole Scherzinger Update

Following the premiere of Nicole’s ‘Whatever You Like’ video yesterday (August 16th), the Pussycat Doll front-woman performed the song live on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’. The performance was ‘ok’ – nothing more or nothing less. I’m not being harsh on her, it’s just that I’m underwhelmed with everything Nicole has offered as a solo star so far.

This is apparently the official cover art for the ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ album.

Nice. Word has it that the album has been pushed back again. What’s up this year with album push-backs? Anyway, the CD’s release has been moved from October 16th to November 6th. I’m guessing the plan will be to release more than one single before the album drops. Nicole will now have to compete with Alicia Keys’ which comes out on the same day.

What do you think of the performance/album cover?

Nicole Scherzinger ‘Whatever You Like’ (ft. T.I.) Video

At long last, the video for Nicole Scherzinger’s debut solo single ‘Whatever You Like’ has premiered. For the record, I like Nicole and definitely believe she has potential – but both the song and video are straight garbage. Nothing about the concept made any sense to me and the one thing she could have done to redeem herself – deliver with the choreography – she didn’t. The T.I. feature didn’t sway me either, although I’m sure their interaction in the vid will have tongues wagging. I expected her to come harder than this, yet so far she has failed to impress.

New Song: Nicole Scherzinger – ‘Super Villain’

Pussycat Doll front-woman Nicole Scherzinger is gearing up for the release of her first solo CD ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ – due October 16th. This new track, ‘Super Villain’ – produced by Mad Scientist, is slated to follow lead single ‘Whatever You Like’ as the next song to be released from the album. The more Pop-orientated track is ‘decent’ but that’s about it. Considering how much Nicole was pushed to the forefront of the Pussycat Dolls, her solo material, thus far, has been pretty disappointing. She’s gonna have to do better than this.

Sneak Peak Of Nicole Scherzinger’s New Video

Check out the preview above of Nicole Scherzinger’s video for ‘Whatever You Like’. The track is set to be the lead single from Scherzinger’s forthcoming album ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ (due on 16th October). I’m still not sold on the track and find it pretty disappointing considering the hype, however the video looks like it’s going to be on-point. The clip is giving me Beyonce ‘Ring The Alarm’ vibes, yet the behind the scenes-which surfaced several weeks ago- show different set-ups; so I’m guessing they went all out with this vid. Be on the lookout for the videos premiere next week.

What do you think of the preview?
