Nicole Scherzinger would rather exercise than go out to party

3 June 2014 / 2 years 4 months ago

Nicole Scherzinger is feeling better than ever since intensifying her workout regime and cutting down on nights out.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer intensified her exercise regime ahead of shooting her new music video for 'Your Love' and is reaping the benefits of swapping late nights out for the gym.

She told Britain's OK! magazine:

"[I work out] five days a week, twice a day. It helps me stay in a fit and strong, focused and healthy state of mind... when everybody was out partying on Friday and Saturday nights, I was at the gym!

"I don't drink that much because I'm too focused on working out. Most nights I'm doing hot yoga at 10pm and I don't want to go and drink after that at 11! It's not an addiction, but it's a natural high. Your endorphins are going and you crave it, your body misses it."

Nicole still enjoys the odd night out on the town with her girlfriends, however, and confessed her soundtrack of choice is her own music.

She said:

"If I'm getting ready for a night out with the girls I'll always play my music, or Beyoncé new album."

The 35-year-old star - who is in a relationship with Lewis Hamilton - feels better than ever now she's in her thirties and has learnt to love herself, flaws and all.

Nicole said:

"You're just not as hard on yourself, when you're younger you're so critical. We're always comparing ourselves as girls. But as you get older you learn to embrace the uniqueness, imperfections and differences.

"That comes with experience, and life, and learning to love yourself. Your confidence will shine through. That's the best thing about growing into yourself as a woman."
