Nicole Scherzinger Signs US Deal w/LA Reid's Epic (Flop) Records!

Nicole Scherzinger
is basically the Terminator of pop stars. Her misses far outweigh her hits, but somehow she always manages to survive and bounce back — it’s really quite amazing when you think about it.

The former Pussycat Dolls frontwoman is currently enjoying a small comeback with her latest single, “Your Love.” Not only is the song on track to debut at No. 2 on the UK singles chart (except not anymore), it’s also due for release in the States through Epic Records, who just signed Nicole to a new deal.

Both Epic and L.A. Reid announced the signing on twitter earlier today, writing “Welcome to the #EPIC family, @NicoleScherzy!” along with a photo of Nicole and Reid sitting together.

This isn’t the first time that Reid has signed a pop artist to Epic that most people would consider washed-up. In the past few years he’s signed new deals with Ciara and Avril Lavigne — both of whom flopped, with the exception of minor hits like “Body Party” or “Here’s To Never Growing Up.”

Hopefully Scherzy has better luck with “Your Love” and her upcoming sophomore album, which has been produced entirely by the once-popular hitmaking duo of The-Dream & Tricky. The album already sounds quite promising, so we’ve got our fingers crossed for it to work.


Buy Your Love on iTunes!

LA told me you'll be a pop star
all you have to do is change everything you are.

She's so fucking thirsty that it's not even cute. She's basically the pop poster child for pathetic and desperate.
rarkon 19th-Jul-2014 02:13 am (UTC)
Terminator died in all four movies, so i don't get the comparison. And she never "bounces back", she flops non-stop.
fortunatoxlk 19th-Jul-2014 02:21 am (UTC)
MTE. She is at the bottom of the barrel, she can't flop any lower.
sheepy_hollow 19th-Jul-2014 02:27 am (UTC)
I think they mean the Terminator shoots a lot, but hardly hits his target? More misses than hits?
rarkon 19th-Jul-2014 02:37 am (UTC)
Terminator had at least one hit (the "hasta la vista baby" one). Nicole, on the other hand...

ciara's album is still my shit.

i'm pissed the era was abandoned.

altho for some reason sophomore cuts off like 30 seconds before the end of the song in itunes???

idk if it's just the mp3 copy i have or what.
fight4thislove 19th-Jul-2014 02:29 am (UTC)
It's probably just your copy, here's the iTunes+ file: http://www44.zippyshare.com/v/44709777/file.html

Nicole has never bonced back. She is at the bottom all the time, she can't get any lower. And at least Avril can do a solo tour. Nicole would never.
wetnasty 19th-Jul-2014 02:38 am (UTC)
she seriously will not go the hell away
kiki3291 19th-Jul-2014 02:41 am (UTC)
I mean, maybe it will work though.

Call it a flop label but it did revive Ciara and Avril's career for a hot minute, they weren't cashing on top hits but at least they were recognized again.
neemah 19th-Jul-2014 02:44 am (UTC)
They keep trying to make this happen...
getbacknow 19th-Jul-2014 02:57 am (UTC)
why does everyone hate her tho

personally i think she needs to reform the pussycat dolls because she's not much of a personality but she's definitely talented
grande_latte 19th-Jul-2014 03:29 am (UTC)
she's a backstabbing d sucking bitch
the pussycat dolls hate her as do edens crush
getbacknow 19th-Jul-2014 03:44 am (UTC)
"she's a backstabbing d sucking bitch"


of course the only reason a woman could be given additional chances is because she's sleeping around

and the pussycat dolls are just random women they cast, if they completely changed the lineup literally 5 people would notice so their feelings are totally irrelevant
fight4thislove 19th-Jul-2014 03:12 pm (UTC)
Except she dated Jimmy Iovine, the head of Interscope, who PUT her in PCD and signed her to TWO different solo deals.

Just like she was linked to Simon Cowell for a hot minute and dated Ron Fair, who produced a lot of the PCD's second album.
preciosatt 19th-Jul-2014 03:07 am (UTC)
It's brave how hard she keep trying to make it happen.
marrymejoejonas 19th-Jul-2014 03:23 am (UTC)
Beep by the Pussycat Dolls was my jam for awhile. Otherwise you know 'she's a flop, not gonna happen' etc.
grande_latte 19th-Jul-2014 03:28 am (UTC)
but why?
hasn't she gotten the hint that nobody wants her on either side of the pond

it's all about Ashley now
topherfy 19th-Jul-2014 03:33 am (UTC)
She ruined her career when she left PCD. Shame on her. I miss them.
simr2277 19th-Jul-2014 03:41 am (UTC)
Is she fucking LA Reid like she was Jimmy Iovine?

sviibwhapp 19th-Jul-2014 06:34 am (UTC)
She sounded really good when she harmonized with Travis Meeks on Days of the New's 2nd album. I wish she could do music more like that
insomniachobs 19th-Jul-2014 11:13 am (UTC)
She is genuinely talented, which is why I think people keep giving her more breaks - they just can't seem to work out the direction/how to market her.

(Still reckon she needs a group around her)
fight4thislove 19th-Jul-2014 03:14 pm (UTC)
I don't think it comes down to marketing, it comes down to her having a shit personality. She's very arrogant and egomaniacal. Her VH1 Behind the Music episode was basically an hour of her saying how great she was. The moment when she said "I WAS DOING ALL THE SINGING ON THE PCD SONGS, NOT THOSE GIRLS, BUT ME!" Screamed of "OMG can you believe it" and "yeah, I'm a bad bitch".
insomniachobs 19th-Jul-2014 06:05 pm (UTC)
She's hardly the only one though - doesn't seem to stop others lol.
prophecypro 19th-Jul-2014 11:40 am (UTC)
Actually might her last major label run for her.
papadia1 I have thoughts...19th-Jul-2014 12:18 pm (UTC)
This woman is honestly very beautiful.
This woman is genuinely very talented. (compared to most with more success anyway)
So it baffles me why she hasn't hit yet? But more importantly WHY SHE KEEPS TRYING!!

I've been meaning to comment on one of these posts for a minute now, I saw that twerking one and just hung my head in second hand shame. You are a 35 year old grown ass woman. If you were twerking because your body was sickening and bitches could be mad about it. I would be first in line giving "YASS BITCH" props. Yet to be so grown...and so dehydrated.
I weep for you...we all weep for you.

On a side note I think she should do more theater, her voice is legit and she's a decent actress.

Ok rant done. Sorry

Here for a whole album produced by The Dream & Tricky.

One of the best R&B songs ever.

Baby love and Happily Never After are my jams

how is Epic a flop?
dynamite_state 20th-Jul-2014 10:07 am (UTC)
OP, your Nicole love makes me feel like...
