Nicole Scherzinger: What's up pussycat? Photo: Splash news

Nicole Scherzinger was snapped with her long black locks twisted up into a bizarre updo reminiscent of Star Wars' Princess Leia, while out and about in New York City.

But while you could be forgiven for thinking the Pussycat Doll was suffering from a temporary taste crisis, the star was in fact in character and on her way to the set of Men in Black 3.

With her signature dark flowing locks, pulled back and twisted into two symmetrical coils, the burlesque performer looked every inch the science fiction starlet.

Find out which other star had her hair in a twist this weekend.
