by: Taj | June 8th, 2014

I am absolutely obsessed with the Cahill remix of Nicole Scherzinger’s fun new single “Your Love“! If you’re in the bubbly commercial house remix kinda mood like I was today… This will do the trick! Smack on that bubblegum and press play…

New Music: Nicole Scherzinger – Your Love

by: Taj | May 29th, 2014

Former Pussycat Doll front-woman & X Factor host Nicole Scherzinger is still trying to her mark in the world of pop music by dropping a brand new single titled “Your Love“. Anyone who has followed my blog for sometime now knows I’m not the biggest fan of Nicole’s solo work but this new one… It’s cute. Yeah, that’s right! I think I’m actually digging this feel-good, throwback pop ditty! It’s the perfect song to blast in your car with your windows open or the top down as you’re cruising on the freeway on your next summertime road trip! Check it out…

New Music: Alex Gaudino ft. Nicole Scherzinger – Missing You

by: Taj | June 21st, 2013

It’s no big secret that I’m usually not a fan of Nicole Scherzinger’s solo music. Hell, I don’t think anyone really is anymore. But I will give credit when credit is due and I have to admit that I am defiantly onboard with her featured vocal on Alex Gaudino’s new single “Missing You“. This is the direction she should go with her own music instead of the beyond forgettable generic-pop she’s been releasing. Check it out…

New Music: Jessica Sutta Ft. Kemal Golden – Again

by: Taj | March 26th, 2013

I have to admit that even though I have showed some support for a few of the former band-members of  Pussycat Dolls’ solo efforts, I haven’t really been highly impressed with any of their releases… BUT that all changed this week when I was pleasantly surprised by the new Jessica Sutta single titled “Again“! I absolutely LOVE this one and I’m hoping this pans out to be a huge cross-over dance-pop hit for the ex-Doll! Take a listen and let me know if you’re feeling it…  (I can guarantee you’ll like it better than anything Nicole Scherzinger has ever released)

Video Premiere: Nicole Scherzinger – Boomerang

by: Taj | January 25th, 2013

UK X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger is back with a new single and music video called “Boomerang“. Another “cute” but forgettable pop song that will bore you out of your mind and have you wondering what happened to the sexy pop-vixen from The Pussycat Dolls that use to release hit singles such as “Don’t Cha” “Buttons” & “When I Grow Up“.

Simon Cowell Finally Clears Up Mariah Carey/Beyonce As X Factor Judges Rumors…

by: Taj | February 7th, 2012

Ever since the “big shake-up” on US X Factor, there has been all kinds of speculations and rumors floating around as to who Simon Cowell would cast as judges to replace Paula Abdul as well as Nicole Scherzinger. The two ladies where let go because the show failed to generate the viewership that Simon and network execs where hoping for during its first season. Naturally, everyone assumes that Cowell is going for the big guns season two so a lot of chatter started to surface speculating that Simon was approaching Beyonce as well as Mariah Carey for the gig.

In the last week or so, these rumors have been spreading like wildfire even though Mariah’s husband, Nick Cannon, flat out denied her involvement stating that Mariah was “too big an artist” to do a show like that. (And let’s face it, if Mariah’s too big so is Beyonce!) So FINALLY Simon Cowell saw it necessary to face the camera’s with Extra and address these stories first hand. Will either of the diva’s join the cast?? Watch and find out…

So the answer is “NO”! And if you watch the interview, Simon makes it clear that it’s a BIG “NO”!!! According to the sharped tongue Brit, they’re both way too busy… Meaning that “they’re too big of an artist”.

Nicole Scherzinger & Steve Jones Not Returning To X-Factor…

by: Taj | January 31st, 2012

Word broke today that Nicole Scherzinger will NOT be returning to X-Factor along with British hottie/host Steve Jones next season! Supposedly, Nicole has decided not to come back on her own to “focus on her music career”. This is what a network rep said of her departure…

“She’s spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he’s given her his blessing… She wants to focus on her music career”

“X Factor took a lot more of her time than she ever expected… She didn’t have any time really to work on her music. She was doing X Factor six days a week.”

Although Nicole’s people have remained mum about her exit, a rep for Fox confirms the news while Steve Jones tweeted about his departure earlier today.

“I won’t be hosting next seasons X Factor which is a shame but I can’t complain as I’ve had a great time… Good luck to everyone on the show.”

As far as Nicole’s decision to leave the show to focus on her music career, here’s my two cents: I think the network is let her go and is throwing her a bone by saying it was her decision. Let’s face it, If the all the exposure that a major network television audience could boost your singing career, leaving the show won’t help make it any better. If I were to humor the thought that this was really her bright idea… This miss-step is right up their with her breaking up the Pussycat Dolls! You’re on your last life kitten, make it count!

As for hottie Steve Jones… It’s a sad day for US television with the loss of this sexy mug!

Nicole Scherzinger Debuts “Pretty” X-Factor…

by: Taj | December 16th, 2011

Nicole Scherzinger debuted her next (pass me by) single “Pretty” on lastnight’s X-Factor!! The mid-tempo ballad is actually pretty good but I still don’t think that THIS is the single she needs to make her mark in pop music as a solo artist! Especially with the likes of pop-siren Rihanna & soul diva Adele dominating the music scene right now, I’m guessing this won’t do jack for her! On the bright side, she sounded GREAT as always and the visual concept behind her was pretty amazing!!

New Music/Video Premiere: Nicole Scherzinger – Try With Me

by: Taj | October 18th, 2011

Nicole Scherzinger has dropped a new single AND music video today titled “Try With Me” which will serve as the first single from the European re-release the her Killer Love album. Supposedly this will also be the lead single for the perpetually delayed release of the US version of the album…

Cute song and all BUT… Look, I like Nicole and want her to succeed but I really don’t think this is the song to end her string of flops here in the US. This song has Selena Gomez or Taylor Swift written all over it. It’s light & fluffy pop. What ever happened to the feisty, sexy-kitten Nicole that we all knew and loved when she was a Pussycat Doll? I think she needs to take a page from book of Justin Timberlake and bring a little sexy back in order to make her mark as a solo artist in the US artist.

Nicole Scherzinger Out-Diva’s Simon Cowell On X-Factor!!

by: Taj | September 29th, 2011

Last night on X Factor, some funny drama went down between Simon Cowell & Nicole Scherzinger! Simon took a major dig at fellow mentor Nicole when a contestant totally botched her audition by telling the girl that she reminded him of Nicole (not in a good way) and that her audition was exactly the type of audition he would have expected from the former Pussycat Doll if she had tried out for the show 20 years ago. Nicole was obviously not happy about Simon’s slam but rather than just sit there and allow him to humiliate her on national television, Nicole quickly fired back reminding Simon that she got her start on a reality music competition called Pop Stars and auditioned with Whitney Houston’sI Will Always Love You“. She then belted out the song right there in front of the live studio audience and actually SLAYED IT! Good for her!! Check out the shenanigans…

Remix Treatment: Nicole Scherzinger – Don’t Hold Your Breath (Official Remixes)

by: Taj | August 24th, 2011

Nicole Scherzinger’s latest US single “Don’t Hold Your Breath” has been remixed to the heavens by some pretty big names! It’s a shame Nicole can’t get anywhere with her singles here in the US. This is definitely one of the stronger tracks off of her album but it probably will end up another flop on pop radio… These remixes however will shoot this single straight to the top of the dance charts! Check em out…

Video Premiere: Nicole Scherzinger – Wet

by: Taj | August 5th, 2011

<a href='http://video.uk.msn.com/?mkt=en-gb&from={from}&vid=6d71b53f-4767-4e31-9bf1-04cec0a5626f' target='_new' title='Exclusive: Nicole Scherzinger - Wet' >Video: Exclusive: Nicole Scherzinger - Wet</a>

Check out the latest video from US X Factor’s newest mentor/former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger called “Wet“. Cute video but can someone please tell me why her label can’t provide this poor girl with any big hits as a solo artist the way they did when she was part of PCD? It’s seriously a mystery to me why her solo work is so lack-luster in comparison. Thoughts???

Confirmed: Cheryl Cole NOT Returning To ‘X Factor’…

by: Taj | June 6th, 2011

So it’s a “big fat NO”… Cheryl Cole will NOT be accepting Simon Cowell’s offer to return to her gig as a judge for the US X Factor after being fired by FOX last month. Sources say that she didn’t bother replying to the offer because she is done being humiliated by the whole ordeal. GOOD FOR HER!!! This was FOX’s official statement today confirming Cheryl’s final exit…

Nicole Scherzinger will be replacing Cheryl Cole on the judging panel of The X Factor. Nicole will join Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul on their search across America to find the next global superstar or group to win the life-changing $5 million dollar recording deal. Nicole has previously joined Simon Cowell as a guest judge on The X Factor for the UK version of the show in 2010. Steve Jones will act as sole host of The X Factor.”

Cheryl is supposedly returning to her roots and is working out the details for a Girls Aloud reunion tour in 2012. Glad she has her band-mate family to fall back on after this whole embarrassing and unfair debacle. To be honest, this whole shit-show of unprofessionalism on the network’s part has left a bad taste in my mouth for the show. I’m sure I will watch it when it debut’s but I’m going in with a chip on my shoulder.

OK… I’m gonna pull a flip-flop on the issue here and totally change my mind about Nicole Scherzinger’s new US single “Right There“. Yup… It’s officially grown on me. Yeah, it was tailer maid for Rihanna but Nicole pulls off the island pop sound just as well. (She’s an island child, isn’t she?) Check out the newly released vid…

Remix Treatment: Nicole Scherzinger – Right There (Wideboys Remix)

by: Taj | May 1st, 2011

Poor Nicole Scherzinger can’t get a hit solo single to save her life but she sure does know how to commission a good dance remix! Check out the Wideboys remix of her latest flop pop single “Right There“. I like this but probably won’t be a huge dance hit either! Is it asking too much for a Pussycat Dolls original members reunion?
