Nicole Scherzinger is downright gorgeous.

But the singer didn't always believe that when she looked in the mirror, admitting in a new VH1 Behind the Music interview that she battled bulimia for many years.

“I just hated myself,” Scherzinger says in the special. “I really was so disgusted with myself and so embarrassed. I felt so alone. I was in a group, and I never felt so alone in my life.”

These days, the artist is anything but alone. Many stars, including Lady Gaga, have been calling attention to the plague of eating disorders across the country.

The former X Factor judge says she struggled with her body image for eight years.

She was especially affected by the skimpy outfits she donned as a member of The Pussycat Dolls.

“Every time I had a second to be alone, I was doing something to myself," she says in the following video. "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.”

Watch the interview here and send Nicole, who says she has recovered from the battle, your best wishes.
