In the latest issue of Blender, Nicole Scherzinger is doing a lot more than merely loosening up her buttons, baby.
The former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls is opening up about her future as a solo artist - and posing in the buff. Here are excerpts from the interview:
You honestly don't think that the way the Dolls dress or dance can be described as naughty or raunchy?
Never. Never in a million, bazillion, trazillion years.
On how on-screen crushes are just that:
"You get these crushes on guys, and then you meet them and you realize you just loved the role they were playing. Like, who doesn't love Ryan Gosling after you see The Notebook? Then you meet the person and you're like, â€˜Huh? What?' "
* The Hollywood Gossip note: This should make boyfriend Talan Torriero happy.
On her solo album release:
"I need total focus, total concentration, total centering, because this album is everything I've been working for my whole life. You get one chance, and this is my chance."
