Nicole Scherzinger covers the August 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan UK.
The former Pussycat Doll has ditched her black locks for an ombre look.
Inside, Scherzinger opens up about her battle with Bulimia Nervosa and how she refused to let the disorder beat her.
“I had such a great life on the outside, the Dolls were on top of the world, but I was miserable on the inside,” she reveals.”I’m never letting that happen again.”
She continues, “It is such a horrible, paralyzing disease and it was such a dark time for me,” she says. “I didn’t think anyone knew in my group or in my family because I hid it that well, I was so ashamed. I knew it wasn’t normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating. It was my drug, my addiction. It’s an endless vicious cycle.”
It wasn’t until she ran the risk of losing her gift that Scherzinger decided to make change. “I had started losing my voice, I couldn’t sing at shows, and then I remember my manager finding me passed out on the floor in Malta or in the south of France,” she recalls. “I thought, ‘I’m going to lose everything I love if I don’t love myself.’ ”
The songstress was photographed by James White for her feature.
