Embracing her dark side, the "X Factor" judge posed for the Mark Cant shot spread while opening up about everything from her audition for "Popstars" to turning down a chance to work with Calvin Harris.
"I mean I'm a Spice Girls fan now, but at the time I only wore black and I was Goth. I would have been Goth Spice. Ethnic Chanting Spice, that's who I thought I was," she added.
When making the final decision, Nicole's mother finally talked her into it. "I brought my little package that I'd put together with my pictures and I'd made my own home music video. I was on it. I gave them my pack and I sang [Whitney's 'I Will Always Love You'} for them and the rest is history. That brought me to Los Angeles."
