Nicole Scherzinger Burns Her Broadway Bridges, Ditching Cats For X Factor… And Andrew Lloyd Webber Is Absolutely FURIOUS!

no title

We love her… but this is a TERRIBLE career move!

Nicole Scherzinger may be most well-known as the former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls, but she's managed to make a name for herself in the world of Broadway thanks to her impeccable voice.
