Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Pop,

Pussycat DollsNicole Scherzinger did all the singing in Pussycat Dolls.

The star - who fronted an earlier line up of the girl band, and now has a solo career - insisted she did "probably 95 per cent" of the vocals on the six-member group's debut album, PCD.

Speaking on a Behind The Music special for TV channel VH1, Nicole said, "I hope I don't get in trouble for the stuff that I say but I'll never forget I finished the album, PCD, and [executive producer] Ron [Fair] and I brought the girls into the studio and we played it for them. It was the first time they'd ever heard the music. Do you understand what I'm saying? We played the album for the Pussycat Dolls. It was the first time they'd ever heard the songs."

Nicole ScherzingerNicole Scherzinger always thought she was ugly.

The singer - who is currently working alone since the decided to take a temporary break - said she only started to feel attractive once she joined the group in 2003.

“Growing up, I was incredibly shy. And awkward. And lanky! I always thought I was an ugly duckling. I guess it worked out OK in the end. Ultimately though, true beauty shines from within,” the 31-year-old claims. “I know joining the group helped me to find out who I am - and I love the message that any woman can be strong, confident and sexy.”

Scherzinger said performing with the band helped her feel confident. “I consider myself sexy when I’m dancing with the Dolls. It brings out an inner strength, a bolder attitude and a fiery, fearless spirit,” Nicole added to Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine. “But away from the stage I can be a different person. I’m either shy or goofy, depending on my mood.”
