Nicole Scherzinger, Culo book

Raphael Mazzucco/CULO by Mazzucco

Nicole Scherzinger rose to fame in her lingerie, but if she'd shown a little more skin, she might be better off today.

Well, at least that's what the former Pussycat Dolls member thinks about her career. In a new interview with The Independent, Nicole explains why sometimes she wishes she were "more slutty."

"I come from the most religious family—my grandfather is a priest—and if they support me in all this, and they do, then I'm OK," the 34-year-old singer says. "I'm being sassy and classy; I'm having fun. I'm not coming from a dark place."

But, according to Nicole, there's a downside to having a mom-approved wardrobe. "To be honest with you, I sometimes wish I were more slutty," she says. "I'd probably be a lot more successful if I were.

"This is such a tough industry, you know," she adds. "To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil."

So, has she sold out to Satan? "No, I haven't," she says. "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?"

Huh.
