Nicole Scherzinger’s Album Release Gets Pushed Back Again
Poor Nicole Scherzinger. The ‘X Factor‘ judge and former Pussycat Doll has been trying for nearly six years to put out an album, only to have it delayed time and time again. Just when it looked like her solo debut ‘Killer Love’ was finally going to see the light of day, the Hollywood Reporter says the record has been pushed back until 2012.
Scherzinger is surprisingly ambivalent about the latest delay, telling the magazine, “You know what, I’ve been waiting for it so long, I don’t even care about a couple more months. What’s the difference? It’s coming out when it’s ready to come out.”
Scherzinger’s efforts to release an album would be comical if they weren’t so sad. She initially began recording her solo debut, then called ‘Her Name Is Nicole,’ back in 2006. The next year, she appeared topless on a steamy cover of Blender magazine to promote the album, but her label ended up delaying its release before shelving it altogether.
In 2010, she started over, teaming up with RedOne to record ‘Killer Love,’ which includes the scorching dance song ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath.’ The album has been released throughout Europe, including the U.K., where it reached the Top 10. But her U.S. label continues to tinker with the record, trying to find a formula that will connect with American fans.
Hopefully, the suits will let Scherzinger finally get her music out there without any further delays. She says, “I’m doing the best music I can for my fans. Music that they can relate to, that they can be inspired by, that they’ll fall in love with, that will ignite them … When I’m not at ‘X Factor,’ I’m at the studio at night. I feel amazing about [the album].”
