Today’s mixed chick of distinction is Nicole Scherzinger. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Nicole was born to perform. Her mother is half-Hawaiian and half-Russian while her father was of Filipino descent. She made her splash on the music scene after winning a spot in the reality show Popstars which spawned the pop group Eden’s Crush in 2001. A few years later, the band broke up and that’s when she got the opportunity to audition for a new up and coming group called the Pussycat Dolls. International fame followed as Nicole and the Pussycat Dolls put out hit after hit. Throughout her time as the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls, Nicole continued to focus on her solo career launching several solo projects over the span of a few years. In 2010, the Pussycat Dolls called it quits which gave Nicole more time to focus on her solo career. Over the past few years, she has added a few cool highlights to her resume including being a judge on The X-Factor and competing on Dancing With The Stars. The sky is the limit for Nicole and we are proud to call her our Mixed Chick of the Day!
