Nicole Scherzinger Channels Safari Barbie

Nicole Scherzinger was spotted leaving the BBC Radio 1 studios on Thursday and she looked jam hot.

The 36-year-old former X Factor judge and lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls was definitely channeling her inner safari Barbie in a zebra print strappy top, pink pencil skirt (with leopard print panelling) and ankle strap sandals.

The wavy tresses (think untamed cave girl vibe), the chunky chain necklace and punchy pink lip was exactly how to make a head-turning exit.

You have to hand it to the lady - she knows how to do sex siren.

In her latest and most revealing interview yet, Nicole spoke to Cosmopolitan about her former battle with bulimia.

"I thought, 'I'm going to lose everything I love if I don't love myself.' One day when you feel like you've reached the end, you just say, 'I'm not doing this anymore.' It's sad to see how I wasted my life," she said.

"I had such a great life on the outside, the Dolls were on top of the world but I was miserable on the inside. I'm never letting that happen again; you only get one life – I was 27 only once."

She also goes onto explain: "I knew it wasn't normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating. It was my drug, my addiction. It's an endless vicious cycle."

Amazingly, she's put all that in the past and right now - with beauty, success and a rekindled relationship with her Formula One star boyfriend Lewis Hamilton on her side - things are looking good for Scherzinger.
