Washington: Lead singer of Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger has revealed that she was nicknamed “cry baby” at school as she was a timid child.
Scherzinger, 32, who is dating Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton, 26, explained she used to be hurt by the “slightest thing” when she was a child.
“My nickname at school was cry baby. I was the most fragile, vulnerable kid and very easily hurt. I’d burst into tears if anyone was mean,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“It always amazes me how this kid who was so easily knocked also had this burning desire to perform.
“I wanted to sing, to act, to get up on a stage and show what I could do, but when I was off that stage I was hurt by the slightest thing,” she added.
