Nicole Scherzinger, former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls, has opened up about her battle against anorexia, bulimia, self-harm and body image issues.
They were a big problem when she was with the girl group.
"I'm nervous about it. It's embarrassing. I never spoke about it. Like I said, I never want to play a victim, and I never wanted my family to hear about things from me because I think it would break their heart, you know."
That's so sad! Your family will always be there to support you!
"I just hated myself. I hated myself. I really was so disgusted with myself and so embarrassed. I felt so alone. I was in a group, and I never felt so alone in my life. I guess it was like my addiction, right? I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction. It's like when I got off stage, I was on this high, and I'd come back to my room and I'd be alone, so I would just do things. My bulimia was my addiction; hurting myself was my addiction. I did it everyday for, like, years. Every time I had a second to be alone, I was doing something to myself. You get, like, blisters on your hands or scars on your hands, and I'd try to hide those. I think the girls could tell."
That's so awful!
We can't believe she had to struggle with her problems alone for so long!
We just wanna give her a big hug and tell her everything is gonna be alright!
