Nicole Scherzinger has apparently been dropped by RCA following poor sales of her latest album.
It really hasn't been a good year for Nicole Scherzinger, the pop star who sold more than 50 million records with the Pussycat Dolls and who received a huge pay packet for her appearances on both the US and UK 'X Factor' judging panels. First, the singer's relationship with Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton came to an end, and now she has reportedly been dropped by RCA Records.

The Pussycat Dolls singer has reportedly dumped the F1 star because he doesn't want to get married.
Sources close to the now-broken coupling confirmed the split to Us Weekly, and indicated that the split was down to British Formula One driver Hamilton’s refusal to marry the former Pussycat Dolls singer, who is six years his senior.

Continue reading: Nicole Scherzinger And Lewis Hamilton Are Over. Permanently.
Essentially a feature-length In Memoriam reel, this entertaining Formula One documentary thrills us with its whizzy editing while it traces the sport's deadly legacy. It took some 45 years after F1's inception in 1950 for proper safety guidelines to be implemented, so watching the parade of iconic drivers, living and dead, is often quite emotional. And the film tells this story with a pumping kinetic style.
Motor racing has a long history in Europe, becoming a proper sport with the birth of Formula One in 1950. But as car-building technology developed, the safety systems didn't keep pace. So drivers were racing at double the speed without up-to-date barriers, safety equipment and emergency procedures. Between 1968 and 1974 alone, the sport lost such iconic drivers as Jim Clark, Jochen Rindt, Roger Williamson, Francois Cevert and Peter Revson in terrible crashes. Over the years the regulations were changed, but it wasn't until Ayerton Senna's shocking death in 1994 that the entire system was overhauled. And no driver has been killed in an F1 Grand Prix since.
In addition to Fassbender's enthusiastic narration, the line-up of on-screen interviewees is seriously impressive, with a collection of champions, team leaders, businessmen, journalists and others recounting their memories as the film presents a chronological history of the sport. Director-editor Crowder ramps everything up as he mixes archive film and stills with thundering music to get the adrenaline pumping. Many of these sequences generate a lot of vroom-vroom energy, even if the video trickery sometimes gets too flashy. Intriguingly, the film's most riveting segment is a single take with no edits, shot from Senna's helmet as he does a qualifying lap in Monaco.

The singer and the Formula 1 ace are said to be rekindling their romance after ending their five-year relationship last month
Nicole Scherzinger may be getting back together with her ex-boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, as the Brit-driving star apparently visited her Los Angeles home this weekend for peace talks. The Pussycat Dolls' lead inspiration and the Formula 1 champion ended their on-and-off five year relationship seemingly for good last month, but now it seems that the pair are ready to give it another go as they attempt to make their hectic schedules work for each other.
Lewis and Nicole in happier times
According to a report from the Sunday People, Hamilton had spoken to Scherzinger about flying over to the USA to meet up at her Beverley Hills pad in a bid to get their relationship back on track, a prospect that Nicole was also keen to be involved in. The couple apparently spent a few days together in LA to discuss were they go next in their relationship, and it seems as though they might be back together again. Lewis hectic, country-hopping job as a Formula One driver had made their relationship particularly difficult, with Nicole's own busy schedule not helping things, however it looks as though they have decided to try out the long-distance relationship again.
Nicole Scherzinger's split from Lewis Hamilton is not wholly unexpected.
Nicole Scherzinger's split from Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton has left the former Pussycat Dolls singer "heartbroken" and "completely devastated," though it seems the decision to end their five year relationship was mutual. The couple are believed to have gone their separate ways after it became apparent their busy working schedules left little time for each other.

A source told Mail Online: "Nicole is just so heartbroken and completely devastated." The news comes just weeks after Hamilton hinted that he was planning to propose to Nicole, 34, "We've been together for five years, which is quite a milestone really. But hopefully in the near future. Maybe before we get to six years," he said.

It appears as though Lewis Hamilton is pursuing a career in music to add to his impressive achievements as a Formula One driver. Whether his musical talents will match his on the track, though, is yet to be seen.
"He's working on some music and I'm working on my music. We can harmonise as one," confirmed Nicol Scherzinger - girlfriend of Hamilton and X-Factor judge seems very proud of her beau for entering into a different field. Her field. She's become somewhat famous for her wacky outbursts as well her pop exploits in recent years. The 34-year-old declared: "I'm a nutcase is what I am. And then shamazing was born. And it's in the dictionary. We've got to get it in the dictionary. And then we took it up a level and gave them "shamazeballs"."
In a further mishmash of, well, something, she told Capital FM's Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon: "Last night I was disappointed when he didn't win at the National Television Awards but I was quite amused when I walked up to the stand to present and I swear to you, I looked at Dermot and the mics, they were two balls put together and I was like are you guys punking me right now? I was like 'there he goes, speaking between the balls. Do what you do best Derm, do what you do best.'"
Lewis Hamilton is best known for being the youngest ever Formula 1 World Champion, which he won back in 2008 aged just 23, but his girlfriend, ex-Pussycat Doll and X Factor presenter, Nicole Scherzinger has revealed to Capital FM that he is also recording some of his own music.
"He loves music. He's always loved music since he was young and he plays the guitar so he's been recording some tracks, doing his thing for fun," Nicole told Capital FM. Apparently, "It sounds amazing." While we'd love that to be true, theres' a nagging feeling that Nicole may just be playing the supportive girlfriend role. Although, she didn't mention whether it's music that he's likely to release to the public or whether it's just a hobby. "Everybody's free to do music or something, a hobby or what they love, so I do nothing but support him. You can't listen to the haters out there," she says. "I mean, if he wants to record some songs and be creative then there's nothing wrong with that." Sounds like just a hobby, shame.
Nicole added. "Me getting in a car trying to drive really fast, now that's scary!" It seems she'll be sticking to music, but at the moment it's unclear as to whether she'll be sticking to the X Factor. She beat all the other judges by having two of her artists reach the final, and one of them win - James Arthur. She's said she'd like to go out on a high. While we may never hear any of Lewis' music, Nicole has a new single out at the moment called 'Boomerang'.
As tall as he draws his posture, there's no way Tom Cruise is anywhere near the height of six foot two that the eponymous character he plays in Jack Reacher is in the original book written by Lee Child. Yet it's Cruise who was given the role for the forthcoming film adaptation and, to be fair to him, he took it with the blessing of Child. Both were in attendance for the film's premiere in London last night (December 10) alongside the rest of the cast including Rosamund Pike and Robert Duvall, whilst director Christopher McQuarrie also put an appearance in.
On Saturday's show, Nicole Scherzinger seemed distinctly less upbeat than normal, she spoke through tears after District 3's performance of Eric Clapton's 'Tears in Heaven', saying that the song had particular significance for her on that day. The resonance and importance of her tears we've only learned today, as it has now been reported that Nicole lost her grandmother on Saturday morning.
The Mirror reported yesterday that the pair were jetting off for a romantic break, having not been able to spend much time together recently, however, in light of today's revelation it has become apparent that she is in fact returning home for far less joyful purposes. It is thought that her commitments to the X Factor will bring her back either tomorrow (Nov 14th 2012) or Thursday which may mean she'll miss her grandmother's funeral. Boyfriend, Lewis Hamilton who went with her over the the US, will probably stay state-side as he has an F1 race in Texas on Saturday.
While the Mirror questions whether Scherzinger will miss the X Factor for her grandmother's funeral, our concern is far more for the family. Although the X Factor judge obviously has commitments to her three contestants still left in the competition, Jahmene, James Arthur and Rylan Clark, it will be more than understandable if she can't make it back. We at Contact Music wish all the best for the Nicole and all her family, and send our condolences.
