We've all been there. We've got an important meeting, we put on a massive pair of heels. No matter that they stand to cripple us within half an hour.
So, solidarity to Nicole Scherzinger who strode out of Sony's offices in London wearing the most uncomfortable shoes we've ever seen.
And the good news for her biggest fans is, rumour has it, she's set to release a new album this summer. Exciting!
