Nicole Scherzinger Gives Long-Distance Relationship Advice

Nicole Scherzinger is the cover girl of Cosmpolitan's August issue and aside from making the double denim trend look totally doable, the singer and former X Factor star offers relationship advice in one of her most open interviews to date.


When asked about how she keeps her long-distance relationship with Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton going, (he's based in Monte Carlo, she spends most of her time in Los Angeles) Scherzinger says it's all down to romance.

"Well it's something crazy romantic," Nicole tells the magazine. "Relationships are hard and having to hold a long-distance relationship is even harder. It's kudos to us for growing and trying – there's so much love there. It's just the distance, it's not natural for anyone. But I'm good and I'm happy."


Will Nicole ever give up on career to spend more time with her man?

"No, absolutely not. This is my passion, I have so much more to give, and with him – whether we're on or off – I wholeheartedly support him in everything he does. It's good we have that love and respect for each other."

Nicole also talks about her struggle with bulimia and how she felt "alone" because of it during her 20s.

"I had started losing my voice, I couldn't sing at shows, and then I remember my manager finding me passed out on the floor in Malta or in the south of France. I thought, 'I'm going to lose everything I love if I don't love myself,'" she reveals.

"I'm never letting that happen again; you only get one life – I was 27 only once."

The full interview with Nicole appears in the August issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale 3rd July. It's also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand.
