Nicole Scherzinger 'Wanted To Be Jennifer Lopez'

She admits to blonde dye disaster

By On

If you were Nicole Scherzinger, surely you'd never try to be anyone else? The X Factor judge hasn't always felt so fabulous - she recently revealed to Heat magazine that when she was younger, she tried to look like curvaceous star Jennifer Lopez.

"I dyed my hair blonde once and it was horrible. I was in my early twenties and I was trying to look like J-Lo. It didn't work!"

We can't imagine Nicole looking anything less than lovely - but we're definitely intrigued to see how she'd wear a blonde 'do.

Luckily, Nicole has become much more accepting of herself - and she told Now magazine that it's all thanks to her racing driver boyfriend Lewis Hamilton.

When talking about her battle with self harm and bulimia, she said "he gave me the courage to end all that. He made me feel beautiful for who I am and not what pants size I'm wearing. That's when I started to try and turn this around. I thought 'wow, I've got to learn how to accept myself and my body.'"

We're glad Nicole's happy with her looks - we certainly are!
