‘I’ve missed out on life’ Nicole says she put FAMILY on hold for fame

She’s one of the most recognisable women in the music industry, but Nicole Scherzinger is well aware that her fame has come at a cost.

In a candid interview with The Mirror Online, the X Factor judge confessed to putting work ahead of family and even admitted to missing “out on life” because of her demanding career.

The 38-year-old star said: “Look at me?  I’m not married and I ain’t got no kids yet.  I’m still like ‘let’s go.’”

“Of course work has come at a sacrifice.  I’ve missed out on life.”

The singer – whose seven year relationship with Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton finished last year – also acknowledged that her love life has been affected by her career orientated ambitions.

Speaking of her current romance with Maria Sharapova’s ex Grigor Dimitrov, Nicole said: “It’s a sacrifice when you put your heart into a job.  Relationships suffer.”

But the former Pussycat Doll remains adamant that once she has met her goals, she will consider starting a family.

“I never expected marriage and kids by now,” she said.  “I have so much more to give as an artist.  Last year I got to do Cats in the West End and that was so fulfilling.  I see a vision of what I want as an artist.”

“Now I’m going to the top of that mountain.  When I get there, then I’ll have time for a family, and kids.”


Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
