Nicole Scherzinger: Bulimia almost destroyed me


In the August issue of UK’s Cosmopolitan magazine Nicole Scherzinger opens up about her battle with bulimia.

She definitely is one of the hottest women in entertainment industry but the truth is Nicole spent years dealing with the eating disorder that almost ruined her life.

“Opening up about bulimia was hard for me to speak about,” she said to the mag. “It still is hard, and thinking about it I try not to well up.

“It is such a horrible, paralyzing disease and it was such a dark time for me,” she explained, referring to her mid-20s. “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.”

NicoleBulimia started taking its toll on Nicole’s career. At some point she couldn’t sing at shows and even passed out while on tour.

“One day when you feel like you’ve reached the end, you just say, ‘I’m not doing this anymore.’ It’s sad to see how I wasted my life,” she explained.

“I had such a great life on the outside, the Dolls were on top of the world but I was miserable on the inside. I’m never letting that happen again; you only get one life.”
