Nicole Scherzinger Reveals Battle with Bulimia

Nicole Scherzinger Reveals Battle with Bulimia

Nicole Scherzinger poses for some quick photos before entering ITV Studios for a taping of The X Factor UK on Thursday (October 4) in London, England.

The 34-year-old singer is featured on an episode of VH1′s Behind the Music airing this weekend, during which she reveals her past battle with bulimia.

“It’s embarrassing. I never spoke about it. Like I said, I never want to play a victim, and I never wanted my family to hear about things from me because I think it would break their heart, you know,” Nicole said (via Entertainment Weekly). “I guess it was like my addiction, right? I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction. 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.”

“I did it everyday for, like, years,” Nicole added. “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.”

And another celeb with a dim past and other “secret”… Is it bad that I’m kinda tired of this? Soon it’s going to be a book she’s writing. Oh well as long as it delivers a positive message out there then…

I like Nicole a lot and I feel like her story is genuine but in general, all these celebs coming out with stores is getting a little old. I understand that ever since Demi Lovato came out with her story and people have seen the reaction she’s gotten EVERYONE wants to do it now. I mean it’s nice that you want to help certain people who have gone through similar things but some people just want attention and it’s annoying and dishonest. Demi really wanted to help unlike half of these people who just tell their story,do some interviews and get press for a while. She actually supports and works with organizations that deal with these issues. Sorry for this long comment it’s just really annoying when certain people do it (not Nicole btw)!

WE ARE SICK OF ALL THESE STUPID SO CALLED STARS AND THEIR EATING DISORDERS, ONE DAY THERE WILL BE NO FOOD, THEN THEY ALL WILL WANT SOMETHING TO EAT. PLEASE LEAVE US ALL ALONE, YOU AND STUPID BODY, I KNOW PEOPLE THAT HAS CANCER AND WANTS TO LIVE AND WE HAVE TO HEAR YOU LOW A.SS TALK ABOUT MY BODY MY BODY LOOK AT MY BODY, WHO GIVES A DAM

To me this whole thing screamed, “gimme attention!!!” Not trying to sound insensitive, but it’s not like this is a mind-blowing discovery or disorder. It was obvious 4 years ago that Nicole had a problem and millions of people suffer from eating disorders. Hopefully she doesn’t milk this like Demi Lovato did. I’m just tired of celebs revealing this kind of stuff and basically being put on a pedestal when it is SO common.

I will bet you she still is…

The price of being “perfect”, women need to realize life isn’t about what you look like…another example of eating disorder…very sad.

# 9

She never did drugs…. What a big joke. She harmed herself to get attention and why is the PCDs founder with a smile on her face? Botox?

She is an amazing singer, dancer, actor, judge and a ultimate performer!
Nicole is a sweatheart and so sweet and beautiful! Stay strong Nicole. I and NicoleNation & KillerLovers believing in you.

i love her, can’t wait to watch all this

Everyone is addicted to something or at least one thing. Some are addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex, internet, etc. but at least now we know what’s Nicole addiction is. Just thinking that she’s gone through all that and still looks stronger and gorgeous makes me feel better. She is naturally skinny but she doesn’t know it. She had to see that she’s beautiful in her own way. All this is just the effect of what can the music industry do to you. Regardless of what she’s done, I still believe her to be as amazing as she always is.

Me and Nicolenation are and always be with this angel,named Nicole,no matter what’s happened ;*<3

nicole you’re the best artist of the moment …. I wish everybody knows it!! but above all are the sweetest and most humble people of this planet! six great nicole! kissis from italy

SHOCKER. Another “skinny” actress/model/singer/performer is suffering from an eating disorder.

Call me when you have REAL problems like surviving a war, a drug addicted parent, not having enough money to feed your family, being molested, being uneducated, going through a terminal illness or beng suicidal. NEXT PLEASE! These people make me sick.

Desperate to stay relevant.

Bulimia can make you die, so it is a real problem. Most celebrities have eating disorders. They need to stay thin so they go to the extremes to do it. Extreme diets, and exercise regimes cause them to look malnourished, old and tired. Nicole looked healthier than many celebs, so imagine what’s going on with the rest.

I really love her and Im so Proud of her :)

She wasn’t seeking attention, you morons… They did a story about her, “Behind The Music”… Do we really want to know all the happy things in anyone’s life? We want to know what they went through and what they had to get through to get there and what has helped them and what they’ve learned from. All Behind The Music’s stories are very interesting and Nicole’s is not any different. I will watch this episode.
