Just as Simon Cowell is gearing up to get two new judges for The X Factor on FOX, Nicole Scherzinger is opening up about being fired from the show. This time around, the singer is holding nothing back as she revealed that feels Simon Cowell was actually scared of her. More after the jump…
Simon Cowell scared of Nicole Scherzinger? Yes, that is exactly what the former judge of The X Factor on Fox had to say recently when questioned about her departure from the show. In a recent interview with Vibe magazine, Nicole did not hold back as she told them: “I know I’m not ditzy like Daffy Duck. If I seem that way, maybe it’s just me being coy. Simon’s just afraid of me.” Nicole Scherzinger’s comment sparked from a comment Simon Cowell had made to her accusing the singer of having a “Daffy Duck brain.”
While Nicole Scherzinger may be upset with Simon Cowell, deep down she is sad that was she was axed from the show. “I think the biggest thing I have for me is my heart, as cheesy as that sounds. I cared so much about the contestants and wanted to make sure we bring out the best in them,” Nicole said about her time on the show. Nicole has a bright future ahead though, as she is now the new Herbal Essences Global Brand Ambassador, is kicking off her European tour, and has a new album set to debut sometime this year!
