Scherzinger: I'm embraced in UK now

Nicole Scherzinger reckons she's now been 'embraced' by the British public, because they get her sense of humour

Nicole Scherzinger has said she "didn't get the warmest reception" when she first came to Britain for The X Factor.

The former Pussycat Doll initially joined the show as a guest judge in 2011

She told Daybreak that the experience was reflected in her new song Boomerang.

She said: "I'm not going to lie, I felt like coming to town and joining the show - I didn't get the warmest reception.

"So now to be embraced and to know that people get my sense of humour and get my quirkiness and see the passion that I put into the show, it feels really good and it does feel like I've bounced back like a boomerang."

Nicole, who's tipped to return as a judge this year, said: "My first week here I was depressed because of the weather. My second week here I was ready to move here. I loved it that much.

"I feel like I can be myself here, more myself, everybody gets my wit, my sense of humour. I'm kind of off the wall and so are they. I know it's crazy to say it but I feel like they embrace that here."

She continued: "Yeah, I feel pressure, hello. But it's good, it's my driving force it's what keeps me going. It's what makes me want to be better. I have these crazy out-of-the-world goals and I'm like, that's what I'm meant for."

Taurus:

Intellectual snobbery could stop you making a good friend. Just because a person doesn't make it obvious it doesn't mean they don't have the necessary knowledge and know how. On the contrary, a newcomer will have some impressive experience. By adopting a friendly attitude you could form a solid working partnership. You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
