Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger ( ; born June 29, 1978) is an American singer, songwriter, television personality, and philanthropist. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, she was exposed to mainstream success with the release of "Get Over Yourself" after making an appearance on the television series Popstars as a member of Eden's Crush. The record label filed for bankruptcy and the group disbanded in 2002. After joining a burlesque-inspired girl group The Pussycat Dolls as lead singer, it was a major breakthrough in her career that brought her to widespread prominence. She recorded the group's debut album PCD (2005); it sold 10 million copies worldwide and spawned multiple Billboard Hot 100 top three hit singles including "Don't Cha" and "Buttons". Under guidance of Interscope Records, Scherzinger began recording her debut solo effort, Her Name is Nicole (2007), but was scrapped citing creative issues for its cancellation. During Scherzinger's time within the group, she suffered from an eight-year battle with bulimia.
