In school, I was nicknamed cry baby: Scherzinger

London, June 6 (IANS) Singer Nicole Scherzinger, who has reportedly replaced Cheryl Cole as judge in the talent show “The X-Factor”, reveals her friends used to tease her in school for her vulnerable attitude.

“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,” 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.

Scherzinger, who is dating Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton, feels she is a “sad rock chick” at heart.

“The real me is a big-haired ’80s rocker with skintight jeans and a guitar. I’m such a sad rock chick underneath everything, and if I could really dress as I wanted to, I’d be straight out of an ’80s heavy metal video,” she said.
