Nicole Sherzinger Not Willing to Sell Her Soul


In a recent interview former Pussycat Doll Nicole Sherzinger says the reason she isn't super successful in the music business is because you really have to sell your soul to the devil and she's not willing to do it...

From The Independent
"This is such a tough industry, you know. To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil."
And has she?
She turns back to face the mirror, and closes her eyes. Her make-up artist resumes her work. "No, I haven't. That's probably why I haven't quite reached the top of my mountain. I mean, where's my Tony Award, my Grammy, my Oscar? Why don't I have any of those things yet?"

.now watch how she gets in a random accident for saying this. She should know better than to give out secret society tea, she better go hide out in Africa like Dave Chapelle.

More truth to this than you think people, don't dismiss this admission. . but what got me curious is, what she mean by "yet"??

Joi Kene said...

I mean she's been selling that coo for years, I'm wondering why she isn't more popular. Maybe cause ppl get her mixed up with that actress chick that looks just like her...

"Where's my Tony Award,my Grammy, my Oscar?"
Yea gurl,I don't know about Tony and Oscar,but Matthew Knowles got the Grammy vending machine on lock

While this is true with some other talented artists, but with her the reason she isn't at the top is she's average & very boring without the other girls surrounding & backing her up.

Please go to youtube and look up Beyoncé's Priority commercial. This is sick. I showed my fiancé and he was livid. She is the whhhhore of the industry. Not particularly having sex, but being the sex goddess of the industry.

STFU NICOLE

Sometimes the messenger is such a joke that it's hard to focus on the message.. She probably thought that the multitude of industry dicks that she's blown would have been enough to get awards and sustain fame.

@8:37, So true.

Leave her alone. She is right.

Maybe she doesn't mean having a slutty image? Perhaps she means she never "f*cked for tracks" as Joss Stone is often described.

Otherwise, this makes no sense from the girl who is almost naked in her videos spreading her legs wide open often.

cns said...

I get what she is saying. All of these top starlets are mediocre but they are at the top for a reason and it is not because of talent. Not being at the top is the tell sign that you have not sold your soul. Even the phenomenal talent of Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson they also sold out and we see how that turned out.

Nicole is FINE! And that's the bottom line.

NO Nicole, you're not number 1 because you're not Talented enough. You don't have an Oscar or a Tony because you can't act- and you don't have a grammy because you've taken your clothes off in every video/live performance and you are nothing extraordinary as a solo artist! Devil or not most #1 artists have talent, beauty, or entertaining skills that are undeniable- you don't!

DON'T DO IT!!

@8:26 We're still waiting for the supposed killing of Katt Williams. Remember they were suppose to be after him? Isn't he in line before Nicole?

@11:17, I would disagree because that has been a formula for success the Rihanna, Britney Spears and even Madonna.

Nicole was fucking her record company prez,jimmy I ovine. She was groomed to be the next bey and Appeal to the profitable asiAn market becoz of her heritage. Her single "babylove" flopped. That's why she went back to the pussycats. The shit happens, Ice cube,the rock and vin diesel were groomed to be the next big action Heroes but shit didn't pan out.

Selling your soul doesn't just occur in the music industry. You can sell your soul in everyday life. If you have to throw away your moral code and values in what you do, you're selling your soul.

Anonymous said...

super-talented people don't have to sell their souls, people come to their doorstep. it's just the marginally talented that have to do this.

Anonymous said...

Blah blah blah its always someone elses fault. Now Ive never worked in the industry and I dont know what truly happened with PCD but most likely being the leader Nicole got greedy. She had a good thing going she was the group the other girls were indispensible and together they were the spice girls of the new millinium. By herself shes not special. She shouldve rode the PCD train a lil while longer before testing her sea legs.

"...NO Nicole, you're not number 1 because you're not Talented enough..."

And Britney Spears and Rhianna are? Nicole is better looking than both and can sing circles around both. In the music industry you have to pay the piper...give it up/put out...whether male or female.
Ask Eminem and Pitbull what they did back in the day to get on. LOL.


People in power in the industry often make actors/singers show how much they want to be a star by asking them to engage in sexual acts....if you want it bad enough you do it.

There was one fat old movie producer in Hollywood that had a lot of power. He would tell unknown or semi-famous male or female actors that if they really wanted a role in one of his movies, they would have to suck his dick. But that wasn't the worst part. He had a huge office and he would make the male/female actor get naked at the door and crawl over to him sitting at his desk on their hands and knees over small ball bearings he had scattered over the floor between the door to his huge office and his desk....ulitmate humiliation and show of power.

You might do this to get a part in a movie but there are a lot of people that did and will do this and worse.

All of you people bashing this woman must be Beyonce and Rihanna stans.

Oh I forgot to mention Nicole is beautiful but she looks like shes at least 40, Im sure that has something to do with it as well. If I had to guess Id say that most of the music buying crowd is aged from 16-20's and unless youre Madonna, Mariah Carey, Mary J, a country singer or some random one hit wonder these kids wont be checking for your 40 year old behind. Like I said she is beautiful if stardom is her desire she should try her hand at acting, hosting a show, reality tv or all of the above. It took years for Jamie Foxx to get his big break. By doing other things she could get a strong fanbase and that could lead to success in music.

Finally someone speaks about it!!!She is courageous and for the person who is still waiting for the supposed killing of Katt Williams it could happend tomorrow or in ten years this mafia never forgets you.

@12:07, it starts with the casting couch.

Definition from Wikipedia: The casting couch, casting-couch syndrome or casting-couch mentality is a term which refers to the trading of sexual favors by an aspirant, apprentice employee or subordinate to a superior in return for entry into an occupation, or for other career advancement within an organization. The term "casting couch" originated in the motion picture industry, with specific reference to couches in offices that could be used for sexual activity between casting directors or film producers and aspiring actresses or actors.

So when you see an attractive person such singers, dancers and athletes in a movie and they can’t act worth a damn they probably got the role via the casting couch. This is usually the begin. Check out Shakira initiation at Hollywood Illuminati. Arnold Schwarzenegger loves the Latinas. Warning, it’s kind of gross.

Sugar82 said...

Please dear, you're non-black/light-skinned, have "exotic" looks, a decent body and can half-sing...in this superficial society where this is all you need (even minus the “talent” part, if you couldn't make it with those characteristics, it's just because people weren't that in to you, simple as that, sorry. That "I didn't make it cause of the 'Illuminatati'" sh!t don't work with pink toes, if you didn’t make it even when you possess the standard “formula”, you just aint special enough. **shrugs**

@1:57, Sorry but the pink toes are the ones that invented it.LOL.

This would explain why Ameriie isn't huge when everyone knows she is better than beyonce, rihanna, gaga, katy perry etc. Nicole has a new fan in me for admiting the truth! Gorgeous woman WITH TALENT.

Amerie is not talented.

Ms. Sherzinger better sleep with one eye open. Better yet, she better move out of the country. The hollywood mafia don't like it when celebrities spill their dirty demonic secrets. Michael Jackson did it, and they killed him!

Want to know another woman who was a wonderful singer and extremely talented that never became a superstar? Shanice Wilson (I love your smile)!

Anonymous said...

Y'all must not follow her career because she can be just as slutty as the next girl. All that gyrating she does half naked on stage PLEASE! Adele slayed the game without selling her soul or selling sex, so Nicole the reason your career is a flop is because of YOU!

Anonymous said...

I wouldnt say Amerie was better than Bey but shes certainly better that the rest. I dont know how involved Satan is but Amerie is really a class act and probaby wanted no parts of the casting couch, she pretty much got zero promo for her last two cds. She has what it takes to be an international star for sure. Oh and I also think she was ahead of her time when she first came out, its like peple were more into rap and heavy drama inspired r&b, she was like a breath of fresh air, noe ANYTHING goes musically and I guess Amerie got lost in the crowd...

Anonymous said...

So tired of reading people hype Adele up. She really isn't THAT good, but folks love to hop on bandwagons. And of course she's not selling sex. She's too FAT. Damn. Quit trying to make her out to be what she's really not.

Where are Beyawnce's stans on this topic. Things that make u go hmmmmmmmmm. They hush mouth on this topic, and I know why.

@4:18 Amerie was really the truth! Her "In Love and War" CD sounds like the inspiration for Beyonce's B DAY CD. Beyonce stole her horn and drum sounds/ rnb. Amerie did it before anyone else was even doing that. She was definitely ahead of her time. She can sing/write/is creative and was beautiful- she just never popped off. Look at Amerie's One thing video and then look at Beyonce's Upgrade you. Same video and sound exactly. It's sad how Beyonce's steals everything and takes credit for other people's ideas

Anonymous said...

1:14 say what you want about Britney Spears but in her prime NO ONE COULD COMMAND A STAGE LIKE HER! Period. She can't sing but she is pretty and can dance and entertain like no one else. Janet's career is over because of her. In 2000 when Britney was in full force Madonna wasn't selling, and Mariah had a breakdown. Britney shook a lot of the older divas with her youth and talent. She became the 8th highest selling artist of all time by 23. That's unheard of! I can go on and on. What other 23 year old was performing on stage with Michael Jackson? He didn't share his stage with anyone. Britney might be with the Illuminati but she was one hell of a performer. Don't mention Nicole and her in the same sentence.

Nicole S. looks like a female fox so technically that would make her a vixen.

@11:23 yes there has been a formula but the women you named are all great solo entertainers- at least Britney and Madonna. Everyone knows Madonna can't sing or act but she and Britney are in a league of their own when it comes to a live performance. That's why Madonna has the highest grossing tour everytime she tours..and she can still charge $1000 a ticket and people gladly pay it. Nicole Scherzinger is not anything special on stage, she can't sing all that great, and she's not young anymore. She needs to at least have one thing working for her.

5:27 girl bye Britney spears is a lip syncing white trash wanna be copy of Madonna and Janet Jackson. That bitch is crazy and has no talent whatsoever. The only thing she was really good for was her dancing but she can't even do that anymore. She looks like a dead fish on stage now GTFOH!

^ that doesn't take away from her career. She HAD a epic run. And if you have IT it would be Madonna, Janet AND Britney the rest is just copy cats.

Based on the hate for Nicole and Ameriie I can see that when you're an attractive woman for some reason women just hate you because both of these artist CAN sing AND dance but here we have people saying otherwise.

Anonymous said...

@ 6:43 I don't know ONE Nicole Scherzinger solo track..that's a problem. Whether I like her or not if she makes good music then I should know her songs. The other ladies we are discussing all have songs that the public knows.
---------------------------------------------
@6:39 And unlike Janet, Britney came in as a #1 solo artist at 16 or 17. Janet only got fame because of Michael. PERIOD. Not to take away from what Janet has done but for Britney to come out of nowhere..no singing group..no successful family..and to be successful is a feat.

And Madonna came in off of being a slut and selling controversy whereas Britney was just a phenomenon for the first 5 years of her career. Watching her perform Slave for you on MTV slayed me for LIFE!! You cannot compare Britney's stage presence to a Nicole Scherzinger..never!

IMO, Melanie Fiona is the most underrated rnb female artist out there. She's 100 times more talented than Beyonce and same goes for Donell Jonell who never had the success his talent deserved.
Nicole, is just a sexier version of the spice girls, don't see her voice standing out, there are millions of her out there.

Tamia also never has gotten the success her voice deserves. Tamia should be up there with Alicia Keys

I agree with 9:08 AM. Nicole is just bitter that her solo career never took off in spite of being "the star" of PCD, and doing her own share of casting couch hopping. She lacks the "x-factor", ironically enough, seeing how she was a judge on both the UK and US versions of the show. She has a boring personality and lacks a distinctive style and sound to make her stand out from any random chick on the street who can carry a tune and do a 1-2 step.

Anonymous said...

Nicole deserves to be bitter if she's not "reaching the top of her mountain" because she's not selling her soul, who wouldn't be bitter about that????????
I like Nicole and she's a good singer, I watched her when she did that reality show "pop stars/edens crush" and I thought the group was good, good enough to make the pop A-list. Nicole has been ripped off....TWICE in her group career. Now her solo songs were garbage, but hey, she could have worked on that with some better song writers and beat makers and as far as personality go, um please, beyonce don't have a damn personality so why does Nicole need to have one? Nicole does what she needs to do on stage just like beyonce, so if she's boring in interviews SO WHAT, so is beyonce and Monica ain't all that trilling either but her music is good and that damn Mary J. Blige is dry as hell, she always seem stressed out, even when she's laughing she seem like she's being stabbed with a butchers knife, so clearly personality isn't necessary for musicians because if they give you a stank show you don't still support them you throw them away, Ashanti had a lot of personality, always jolly and loud and Nick Cannon had a hyper personality but that didn't help their music careers. But personality helped Nick's tv career, personality is a big winner when it comes to actors/comedians, musicians have to worry more about stage work. Christian Aguilera and Keyshia Cole's personality ain't the greatest but their music earned them fans.
Nicole problem isn't personality
and even Christina Aguilera and Pink have spoken out against the industry trying to make them be who the industry wants them to be and try to hold them back when they refuse to be industry puppets.
Nicole just might be failing because she's not being as slutty as the industry would like her to be. Maybe the industry tried to slutty her like Prince did Vanity, now that was a damn shame and pure destruction of a pretty/cool girl.

@5:09....calm down it's not that serious. This is not about how successful Britney Spears was...it's about other artists who are prettier with actual talent that don't get the shine they should. I never said anything about Britney Spears not being successful. I said Nicole looks far better than Britney Spears and Nicole sings far better than Britney Spears. That is truth. Period. Britney Spears is just a run of the mill bama white girl that was in the right place at the right time.

She had the blonde hair, the big boobs, all of Janet Jackson's old dance moves and a tight lip-sych game....Britney essentially was the young white blonde version of Janet Jackson and the public at large ate it up and could not get enough.

No hate on Britney...she did her thing. But she is sub par in looks and talent. She is not the first nor will she be the last person to reach superstar status and make millions with marginal talent...it happens. Nothing you or anyone else says will ever change my opinion on that.

P.S.

I liked that Rhythm Slave thing she did back when.

@7:53..."Not to take away from what Janet has done but for Britney to come out of nowhere..no singing group..no successful family..and to be successful is a feat."

ummmmm...Britney Spears did not just come out of nowhere she was known in the industry. She was on the Mickey Mouse Club on the Disney Channel along with Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell and JC Chasez.

Britney had a manager and an agent with the right contacts. She had already made records with MMC for Disney so record labels already knew about her, Christina and Justin. Just like the other kid stars that have transitioned from Disney to the grown up world, Britney had a team and a fan base already in place....she did not just fall unknown and brand new from the sky.

6:43 I agree with the part when a woman is beautiful other women hate them for nothing. Whoever that poster is who said kim has average look I know you wear the title JEALOUSY because no offence she does not have average looks. Shes beautiful so is beyonce, kelly rowland, jennifer lopez. Theres many but I cannot believe how hate runs through women blood. I thank God I was never a jealous woman.

Anonymous said...

Thank you to everybody who got 7:53pm together about Britney Spears. She was a Madonna/Janet derivative and the ONLY reason why she was such a "phenomenon" is because she was a TEENAGE SLUT as oppose to a of age slut such as Madonna. She was never the performer that Janet was in her prime either.

adele did sell her soul! she has no looks and has 20 sum grammies, niclole is saying she has what it takes but when u dont sell out people wth power will only feed you so much, and will not let u in the smaller circles, but i'm 99% sure she took the oath, if i no jimmy i. even 106 and park hosts are initiated, and thats the bottom of the barrel! mainsteam will not dare bring this up, keep it trill luv it!

I believe you girl. It's absolutely true. Celebrities want to poke fun at it but think about it....why does the radio play only certain singers....over and over again as other talented artists don't exist. In order to be successful you need to sell your soul to the devil and do all kinds of nasty shit. Do your research people. Just listen to frickin' what's his name....Bob Dylan's interview on 60 mins ....need I say more ;)
