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.
It's so sad when such an obviously beautiful woman has so many body image issues. She was still nervous to talk about them, even today, saying:
"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!
