To celebrate the release of his new solo album #willpower, Will.i.am promoted a livestream hangout yesterday evening (23) with Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Scherzinger and Jimmy Lovine.
Using the Google+ Hangout platform, the chat began promptly at 16.15 PST. Britney Spears was the first one to get to chat and answer questions. The pop star spoke about her and Will.i.am’s collaboration, their song “Scream & Shout” and how excited she was to be part of his project.
Then, the interviewer called Nicole to talk about her work with the rapper. Asked how she was doing, Nicole all smiles said she was having a party in the room by herself at the hotel in Beverly Hills.
The interviewer pointed out that Nicole and Will make a pretty good duo to which Will replied saying they’ve been working together for years, as Nicole commented: “He’s been working on the EP of my life. We know each other for years… I started off stalking Will, actually, in the Black Eyed Peas”.
Will said he met Nicole in 2001, when she was a member of “Eden’s Crush” and said he was like “that girl is so freaking fresh”, the rapper also was keen to mention that he has worked with a lot of people, “but Nicole is one of the craziest people I have ever worked with”.
When asked about working with the rapper, before Nicole getting a chance to answer, Will revealed Nicole should be a member of the Black Eyed Peas, but her boyfriend at that time said no. And also pointed out that he helped her to get into the Pussycat Dolls.
“One day she calls me up and is like, ‘Will, I want to do this audition. Can you get me in?’. So I was like, ‘Yo Jimmy I know this girl that will be dope for the Pussycat Dolls. So I introduced him to her and that’s how she got into the group.” Jimmy Lovine is the Interscope boss.
And added, “Me and Nicole , it’s like no matter what… Everything I’ve been through in my career, she’s been there and everything she’s been through in her career, I’ve been there. And I don’t know anybody that sings like her. She can do anything!”
After followed banter between them, the interviewer asked if that’s how they work and if they manage to get work done while he replied “Me and Nicole are like this… ‘Nicole I need you to go to the studio and record this one part and she’s like ‘ok, what is it?’ and I’m like ‘it’s like this’ and she makes it all freaking ‘fantabulously’ better”, adding that he needs to tell her when to stop, because she always wants to record her part again to which she replied being perfectionist. Nicole also said “I feel that when I’m with Will in the studio we’re like a bunch of kids in the playground!”. How cool this must be!
Far Away From Home, song that features Nicole, was written by Will based on people’s dreams. Nicole mentioned the melody, saying it’s fun which Will mockingly added, “she was like ‘I like this! This is kind of Mary Poppins’.”, when he first played the melody to her. “Smile Mona Lisa”, on the other hand, was revealed to be Will’s own interpretation of Disney, as odd as it may sound.
“And he said ‘so basically we’re gonna be singing vintage Italian opera’ and I was like ‘alright! Cool. Let’s do it!’.”, said Nicole in a serious face but playful tone.
Nicole’s participation might’ve lasted about 15 minutes, being the longest out of them. #willpower is now available. You can also purchase “Far Away From Home” and “Smile Mona Lisa” on iTunes.

I can assure you that no one was expecting something like that to come out the way it did. Will.i.am exclusive videoclipe was released on the internet earlier today with a quite unexpected and very pleasant participation of Nicole Scherzinger. The singer pops up almost unrecognizable, wearing a blonde wig, with her mouth and nose covered up and voice modified by the effects of auto tunes, performing several dance moves following the rhythm of the song, called “Hoola Hoop Feat. Nicci Sundae.”
For those who have a short memory, Nicole was snapped months ago wearing a blonde wig while walking by the streets of Los Angeles, on the phone. Until now, we didn’t know the reason of why she was wearing a wig.
Earlier this month, Will.i.am’s willpower promo party took place in Los Angeles and both Nicole and Will were seen arriving together. Everything was working perfectly fine until the moment Will came to Twitter claiming that his car had been stolen at the party, causing a fuss in the international media. The car was found days later, but without a backpack that was in the vehicle with a CD containing all the songs and some videos of #willpower
With this backpack stolen, its thieves were now releasing the content of this CD on Youtube. The first video that has been released is “Hoola Hoop” featuring Nicole as Nicci Sundae – most probably her alter ego, until now unknown.
For what it seems, everything – going through the blonde wig, the stolen car and the party – were all part of Will.i.am’s plan to promote his album in such an unique way. The tracklist of #willpower hasn’t been released yet, so we still don’t know if Hoola Hoop is part of it. The only track we know Nicole is featuring is Mona Lisa Smile.
Check out below the video of “Hoola Hoop (Feat. Nicci Sundae)”:
Nicole Scherzinger attended the Avalon nightclub in Hollywood yesterday (13) Will.i.am’s #willpower promotional event. The album will be released next September 24 and the party was attended by personalities such as Steve Aoki, Kid Cudi and Lindsay Lohan.
Accompanied by Will, Nicole came to the event and then stopped for photographers, check out all the photos in our gallery:
Nicole and Will used Twitter to post pictures of the moment they arrived at the nightclub. Will I Am also tweeted: Me and @NicoleScherzy getting ready to go to my listening party…#willpower night”
Nicole tweeted right after him, posting a picture and revealing she was in the studio with Will before going to the party.
But it seems that the night didn’t end as expected. Will.i.am had his car stolen and according to his last tweets, he’s still looking for it.
