Nicole Scherzinger may have had a hard time The X Factor this years…with the death threats and harassment from viewers upset with her on the show! Nicole says she wants to concentrate on her music.
Nicole Scherzinger is fueling rumors that she wonâ€™t be returning to X Factor by saying she plans on focusing on her music next year, something she didnâ€™t have time to do while filming the hit show.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Nicole danced around the question when asked if sheâ€™ll be returning next season.
â€œNext year for me, itâ€™s about my music,â€ Scherzinger said. â€œThis has been quite a learning experience, quite a journey for me. I didnâ€™t expect to have been so emotional through the whole elimination process. I wanted to just mentor and empower artists.â€
The singer blames her hectic work schedule on X Factor for the delay of her album release.
â€œThe reason it hasnâ€™t come out yet is because of The X Factor,â€ Nicole said. â€œItâ€™s been so time consuming. I work with these contestants six days a week. So I delayed the album, but I was able to perform one of my new singles last week.â€
Nicole also shared that she found it hard to be on the other side of the stage, and claimed she identifies more with being an artist than a judge.
â€œIâ€™m used to being on stage and performing and singing for people and people cheering for me,â€ Scherzinger said. â€œI am an artist first, not a judge first!â€
Nicole struggled with her emotions during X Factor and found herself in tears during many episodes.
â€œThe elimination process for me has been very difficult,â€ Nicole said. â€œI definitely took the cake this year [for crying] â€“ I think I got 25 strong points on that!â€
Nicole filmed Men in Black III earlier in the year with Will Smith and said she definitely wants to pursue more acting roles in the future.
â€œI really want to find the right roles and the right opportunities in acting,â€ Nicole said. â€œTheater is actually what I studied in college.â€
