Ex Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger revealed recently that she turned down the opportunity to record 'We Found Love', the song by Rihanna and Calvin Harris which became a hit last year.Â "I passed on 'We Found Love'," she admitted to Notion magazine. "I got the demo of that song and I was busy at the time. Theyâ€™d sent me a few dance tracks and I wasnâ€™t able to get to them and I was like, 'Oh, thereâ€™s so much dance and I want to take a break from it'. That was my fault. I slept on it."
Scherzinger went on to confirm that she also turned downÂ Gnarls Barkley's hit 'Crazy', and that during her time as a Pussycat Doll they rejected the idea of singing 'Just Dance', made famous by Lady Gaga.
It is also rumoured that Nicole turned down Jennifer Lopez's 'On The Floor', although this has not been confirmed by Scherzinger herself. Interestingly, she is the second singer to regret rejecting 'We Found Love', after British songstress Leona Lewis confirmed recently that she too had missed out on releasing the track after releasing 'Collide' as the first single from her ill-fated Glassheart album.
