Nicole Scherzinger To Play History's Most Famous Ex-Prostitute

| Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaNicole ScherzingerX Factor

Nicole Scherzinger As Mary Magdalene

We’re not sure if this is a step up from X Factor, but we're def excited to see her wardrobe!!

Key roles were cast in Britain’s take on Jesus Christ Superstar, including Nicole Scherzinger as Mary Magdalene and Tim Minchin as Judas.

Magdalene is history's most well known whore, but we’re strangely confident in Nicole’s ability to be convincing.

So who landed the titular role in the Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera??

That’s where it gets interesting!!

Contestants will compete on the BBC talent show Superstar and the voter-decided winner will be cast as the son of God himself in the touring production of JC Superstar.

Hmmm.

We hope the Brits have an eye for talent, otherwise this play will just be a steaming load of holy crap, LOLz!!

    Yeah, except Mary Magdelene was demon possesed, not a prostitute. ALMOST right tho.



  2. 2

    Only on a site like this would anyone refer to Mary as a whore. you fucking asshole. And I'm not even religious. effin dick.

    wait a minute Mario…
    nowhere in the Bible does it say Mary was a prostitute..or even anything similar
    that was put forward by the Catholic shurch centuries ago in their attempt to keep women "in their place" and out of the church (such as the priesthood/bishops etc.) where they may be in a position of influence
    ..
    with the invention of the printing press- ordinary people were able to read the Bible for themselves and not have to take the word of the church (which was highly political and staging massive wars)
    the interpretation of the Bible by the masses (after the printing press) led to Martin Luther and the Protestand Reformation
    where Luther disagreed with the Catholic church's long standing teachings and acts- such as selling places in heaven
    not all that simple as I'm stating it of course but you get the idea
    ..
    so Mario needs to quit perpetuating the lie
    ..
    scholars now agree that Mary was more like another disciple and confidant of Jesus- just like the 12 apostles were

    Not a step up, but Scherzinger's ego has always been much bigger than any talent she can lay claim to. You don't leave a huge show and think a musical is a step up. But your statement about steaming crap is appropriate to you, Mario(n); it's what you are. You're as competent to judge talent as a roach is.

    Re: JM – Perez is too fucking stupid to get anything right.

    Mary Magdalene wasn't a prostitute or possessed by a demon. Centuries ago a priest misread the Bible and told his parish these things in a sermon. If you take the time to read any version of the Bible, you'll see this is true. If you are a believer of religion or not, can we at least agree not to label this real person a demonic hooker because of some priest's(who probably couldn't read well) mistake.

    "history's most well known whore" LOL. Please, you're only a whore if you do it for free.



  7. 7

    WHY … why do actresses have the urge to sind and singer thave to urge to act…. please… stay with what you are doing, it's jsut painful to see.



  8. 8

    The only whore is this production is Nicole Scherzinger.



  9. 9

    Change that to, "Most Famous Prostitutes”, and you have the KocKROACH sisters.



  10. 10

    Did anyone else think of Mata Hari before Magdelena?

    actually mary magdaline isn't a whore. the only reason early churches (catholic or protestant) say that is because on the same page in the bible, BEFORE we meet mary magdaline there is a story about a whore (whom isn't named) that comes to jesus. and they assume that she is mary magdaline because we meet mary after said story.

    Re: Judyg73 – Nicole studied musical theatre in college before dropping out to pursue a career in pop music. Nicole is simply making a return to her roots. Please carry out your research before you make judgments.

    Also, Perez, Tim Minchin himself has even reported that Nicole will NOT be taking part in the stage production, although there is still a possibility that she may be taking part in the film. Perhaps you should do your research as well.
