Nicole Sherzinger: “To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil.”



In a recent interview with The Independent, Nicole Sherzinger – the former lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls – discussed the music industry and what is truly needed to make it. According to her, female pop stars who receive “industry love” must obey orders, forget about their values and accept to be slutty. In short, they must be willing participants of the elite’s Agenda. In Sheringer’s words: ” To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil”. This phrase is often used by celebrities who discuss the industry (see the article When Insiders Expose the Ugly Side of the Entertainment Industry) and its meaning can be a lot more literal than most would expect. Indeed, making it in the industry does not only imply doing things you don’t feel like doing – it implies going against the very morals and values you grew up with. Even worse, it implies submitting to the dark forces ruling the industry and all of the spiritual sacrifices that come with it.

Sherzinger began her singing career as part of an “acoustic goth” band named Days of the New, which was all about art and music. Real success however only came about when she joined the Pussycat Dolls, a group that was the total opposite of Days of the New. It was indeed a record company-created group that was designed use sex to sell catchy pop tunes. Sherzinger apparently did not like what the Pussycat Dolls were about, but she joined anyway, stating that she “didn’t have a choice”.

“My first response when I was invited to join was, No way! I come from a strong religious background, and I had a very conservative upbringing. So I was nervous, and confused. Here I was wanting to be Whitney Houston, so why did I have to dress in lingerie to do that? I didn’t get it.”

When asked the “sexy songs” she sings, Sherzinger replied:

“With these kind of songs, I don’t feel I have to justify myself to anyone. I come from the most religious family – my grandfather is a priest – and if they support me in all this, and they do, then I’m OK. I’m being sassy and classy; I’m having fun. I’m not coming from a dark place.”

Sherzinger is however aware that she is probably not doing enough to become a top, industry-backed pop singer.

“To be honest with you, I sometimes wish I were more slutty. I’d probably be a lot more successful if I were. This is such a tough industry, you know. To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil.”

When asked is she sold her soul to the devil:

“No, I haven’t. That’s probably why I haven’t quite reached the top of my mountain. I mean, where’s my Tony Award, my Grammy, my Oscar? Why don’t I have any of those things yet?”

From a young naive singer dreaming of making it big, Nicole Sherzinger is apparently turning  into another disgruntled pop star that is slowly learning the truth about the music industry.

Since you're from a strong religious background, you should know the importance of your soul. It's the real YOU; the you that will remain after your flesh has died and rot. You sell your soul to the devil, and you'll burn in hell for eternity. The devil doesnt care about you, he's just going around collecting souls to make up his kingdom; and using people like those in the music industry as fronts.

Learn to be happy and content with what you have. Stop comparing yourself to others. You cant take all these worldly possessions with you. It's not worth it. What shall it profit a man (or woman) to gain the whole world and lose their soul. Nothing!

Trust me peeps the devil is real.. for many years i served him . P**n , three to four sex partners a week, cocaine, to much booz , amil nitraine better known as poppers. I was meeting these women of dating sites. One friday … same as usaull i met a woman of line and spent 3 days at hers .. booze coke and sex. After the secound day with her i felt strange.. she stated speaking weird stuff.. i coudnt understand. She was a witch. I became very sick.. i was demonized. I called three diverent spiritual healers and they all looked in the realm.. thats the spirit realm. They all said you have had witchcraft done on you. Satan basically. I didnt realise spirit healers are working for satan. Getting rich . I come accross a christian lady who said you need the light.. it was easy for… Read more »

I agree with this, why would Everyone in this “world” would do anything that is not bible said to do. I wanted all christians to against the REAL Illuminati and this “world” itself. Why would people was so reckless doing this. Why, I wanted to see their real self. I was scared mentally, either lonely. I know I have family with me. But I was scared of this “world”. I was the Christian but I know my dream is part of this “world” but is going to be different, I will use my REAL dream as my “weapon” against the illuminati and other celebrities, but I know is nothing is different and there’should no different. I knew I just wanted to be careful to “fight”. Words are truly stronger than action. There’s no word called “world”.
World is Satan.
Earth is God.

Jesus brings true happiness and success!

"Where's my grammy?" – ??????? Er, Nichole – you're in an industry-conceived group called the Pussycat Dolls. You sing s**t pop songs that incite jealousy between women in the most facile, basic, playground, 2-dimensional fashion [cite "bet you wish your girlfriend was hot like me"] and you're asking where is your GRAMMY???? Vigilant Citizen – of all your posts, this has to be the most incredulous. Please can someone inform poor little Nichole that when she "sold her soul to the devil" she sacrificed any artistic integrity she might have once had, and denied herself the privilege of practicing and performing "music" in any real sense, so really, she should have just gone with it and been "even more slutty" – and who would have thought that was possible? Anyone who thinks they deserve a Grammy purely on the basis of being "slutty" has clearly, most definitely, been misinformed. Because… Read more »


Excuse me but I have to disagree with you. Let’s take the case of Beyoncé who has won multiple Grammy Awards. All she does is selling sex. Sex on her lyrics, sex on her video clips, performing almost naked most of the time. Talking about s**t, Beyoncé sings it a lot with very narcissic, materialistic and sexually oriented lyrics. It seems her lyrics are written by a 14 years child a part from all the occult references. That was just an exemple. You should know that it is not the most talented artists that are given such prizes but instead, those who totally agree to help pushing the elite agenda. By doing so, they are over-publicised to make people think that they deserve the prizes they receive. In those type of system, they cannot give those awards to the most talented because it would be negative for their business. They… Read more »

It's easy to sell your soul, but its hard not to.

That's why I would rather cut my wrist than sell my soul, I would rather literally eat pig poop than sell my soul, I would decline a trillion dollars if it meant my soul would be sold. I would never ever ever sell my soul no matter what the circumstance.

Working in corporate America requires you put aside your emotional self. Sociopaths rule the corporate world. So no doubt they rule Hollyweird. Their movies glamorize sociopathic behaviors. They also breed more sociopaths. Think about the slasher movies. Young preteen boys watching two older teens have sex, a beautiful half naked woman, the boy is getting excited, the intensity grows, the excitement grows then wham a knife goes through the young womans back and out her breast. That my friend is Hollywood.

Hollywood also supports the growth of government control over our lives. They shoot guns to make a living and have hired guns surrounding them for protection but we wraiths in the real world, we should be ashamed that we own guns to protect ourselves. All of the so called movie stars make me sick.

Don't say anything of this to people you know because they might think jealousy is talking. On the other hand you are absolutely right, I couldn't agree with you more.


Don't sell your soul nothing is worth that. It's all fake looks the whole show….it's just physical if being ordinary in live in not selling your soul I would forever be ordinary….I would never go to the Devils side and it knows it. The Devils stuff is all fake Hollywood is completely fake…..I like nice music not slutty crap like miley etc it's all the same iluanati music slutty dumb tongue hanging out butts in your faces so dumb…..this whole world is run by demon demon idiots and I see through it.

Let us pray!

Personally I think she may have already sold out…never really followed her music; but it seems as superficial as anyone elses; also, she is not opposed to showing her "goodies". And didn't she have a tour titled "World Domination" and belong to a band titled "Pussycat Dolls"… surely she could have quit if she was asked to do things she didn't want to. one always has a choice…called free will folks. Also; I skimmed some of the songs from Days of the New featuring her and she is but a whisper in the background. I believe they hooked her when they agreed to make her the "lead" singer. Even without a grammy or whatever else she thinks she deserves she is still the focus of attention. She hangs around on her strings with all the other puppets. Maybe she is the "I'm not a puppet" Puppet…but with her smiling all… Read more »

It goes to show you that the people winning the Oscars, Grammys, and Tonys have all sold their souls. You have to sell your should to Satan to win a little golden idol.

Part of me respects Nicole's trepidation about "the industry" and the sacrifices allegedly required…her questioning how much of herself she is willing to give up, and how much of a w***e she is willing to be. Part of me agrees with many of you that she's already done her fair share of acting the hootchie in videos…and that's just the part that the public sees! How slutty are we talking?! I watched her on DWTS and saw that she is a gifted dancer and a talented, driven performer….. However, I'm disappointed to hear that her gauge of "success" is a stupid bloody Tony or Grammy award. I sure hope they took that quote out of context, because anyone who goes into the arts for the purpose of mass adulation and meaningless "awards" (aka OBJECTS that a publicist probably PAID FOR and that ultimately collect dust) is going into it for… Read more »

The only problem I have with her is her attitude about this whole thing. When talking in her interviews she seemed like she was only "disgruntled" because she wasn't incredibly famous yet not the trade itself. I love how she's complaining about a blood-pact with the Devil being the initial price to ever REALLY enter into the music industry, yet whines about not receiving grammy's or Oscar's. By the time you actually reach those levels the sacrifice has to be much higher. To me it sounds like her ego is the problem and despite being in the PCD she still doesn't really understand that selling your soul is only the beginning of the journey to "success."

She is making excuses.
Kirk Franklin, Espranza Spalding, and, Matthew West have all won Grammy's. I haven't notice any of them having to dress slutty or make music not "spiritual" to make it in the music industry.
It is so much easier to blame your results on external factors instead of the person you must face in the mirror.
Success comes to those who take 100% responsibility for their success and failures.

Everyone of them made a choice and the CHOSE to be a Mimicker. They all use words that did not have any TRUE Meaning to elevate their vocals in such mannerisms. They are Envy. All, even ones like ADEL, mimic vocal projections with UNTRUE and Meaninglessness. Envy wants attention, but it has no True Character. Therefore, it mimics.

Finally Nicole Sherzinger realized what it takes to be successful. It is not really necessary to give up your morals and give away your dignity. why would you do that? only if you are too hungry for fame and so called success. It is about the choices we make in life and what we expect out of it. No one can take your dignity, values and morals away unless you are weak and succumb your soul.

Maybe she has no talent

While I do believe that sex sells…there are many artists that did not go the slutty route to become Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Pink, Gwen Stefani etc. Perhaps its just as much about her own personal self image and esteem, talent, and record label. She acts as if she doesn't have a choice of being the type artist she aspires to be and perhaps that has been to her detriment! She needs to stand her ground. Nobody forced her to join a group called "Pussycat" Dolls…a burlesque group that wears lingerie. wth???!!!

Oh she wishes! Silly moo sold out ages ago. Would she have had her #1s with the PCD and on her own (OK, she only got 1 #1 in the UK) if she was pure and sweet and innocent. Yeah right.

She is one the super demon Simon Cowell's b*****s and she knows it. It's all reverse psychology trying to make herself out to be pure.

If she thinks she has to be nastier and sluttier to get any awards, the only thing she could do is get her tetas and her regina out. Other than that, I think we have seen it all.

If you lie with catch fleas!

This is why most of so called pop stars, if not all are scratching themselves silly!

Adele has won Grammys from being true to herself AND to the public, by singing beautifully, and writing great songs. She hasn’t tried, not even the slightest bit, to be slutty and has done remarkably well in this industry. So Nicole, your excuse for not winning a Grammy is bullshit. Just accept that it wasn’t cut out for you.

She is UNTRUE. Her words never flowed vocally, as she first scripted them.
And often, she calculated words inspired from a previous relationship. She used and exploited a private relationship.

I dont think Adele sold her soul to the devil.. i mean she's not been slutty in any of the songs..

Its sad that Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber have won awards and are major successful but Nicole is wayyyyy better, any f*****g day!!!!!!!!

Guys…and just another example how all the fields in life are affected
one of football stars shots…sorry I even don't know their names but you may recognize them..
clear signs with their hands…

How come Adele is so revered by the music industry then?

She has a shitload of Grammys and is far from slutty.

Sometimes TALENT actually does take you to the pinnacle.

Adele is not a pop singer as Nicole intends it. She’s more of a soul/ jazz woman and she probably did sell her soul anyway to win grammy’s and be used as a puppet by the industry and its propaganda in time, when it would be needed.

She was Awarded top Actress.

Well if it takes someone to be slutty and sell their soul to make it to the top of the mountain you wont find what your looking for once you reach it.

This is a slight digression: what do you think about British star Adele's success? She dresses very matronly, she is overweight, and her popularity results from her actual vocal talent… Is she an exception, or have I overlooked details? I know that she recently had a baby with a significantly older, and well-connected businessman– perhaps a music industry-insider?

maybe it has already been mentioned but I thought I might throw it out there… nicole's old group days of the new has faced some issues of their own. frontman travis meeks in particular was featured on a&e's "intervention" in 2005. it was a haunting episode, showing the decay of a clearly talented man due to his addiction to meth. most people haven't heard of days of the new, sad that the guy is probably more famous for one episode of that show than his music career at all. wonder if his issues were more related to getting into the illuminati agenda or mourning the fame he would not get for avoiding said agenda.

Adele and Jennifer Lawrence won countless awards — are they puppets to stardom too?

Yeah right…..
You are talentless, that is why yo don't have those awards.

Thanks VC!

Now, I’ve never been her fan or the PCD’s but puuhhlezzz! Complaining about what! I see her comercials about that dumb shampoo almost all the time! And trust me, you wouldn’t wanna be on the top of their pyramid… Why are people so obssess with fame? Hard work paids off. Trust me. Not necesarly has to be money. Money money moolah moolah dinero dinero. People say they wanna do things they love, but in real life, most do it for money. It is unfair, really. You have talent, but you see some material-girl(boy)-who-uses-auto-tune-too-much type get more credit than you.But rethink. Is fame really worth it? Do you really need atention that bad that you need paparazzis and a mob to invade your life? God help us.

Do these celebrities actually know what the smallprint would say? Im not religious but I know that its a bad deal.

Being slurry is not the ONLY way to notice who has or hasn’t. Satan is very deceiving, and deceptive… Slot of artists isn’t slurry and still made that deal. He comes in many forms.. Even conservative…Government, male rappers and even so called gospel folk.. Be the not deceived.. Ijs

Slutty, not slurry.. Typo

Be ye not deceived… Darn typo

Adele has won Grammys from being true to herself AND to the public, by singing beautifully, and writing great songs. She hasn’t tried, not even the slightest bit, to be slutty and has done remarkably well in this industry. So Nicole, your excuse for not winning a Grammy is bullshit. Just accept that it wasn’t cut out for you.

VC's analysis is interesting, logical (in the literal sense), and thought- provoking. HOWEVER any discussion of the evils of the Illuminatti & all other supposedly cult-like secret societies 'pulling the strings'…when is the end-game? Is VC & others like him really saying it's been going on for HUNDREDS of years? As an economist, people only think of 'wiifm'- 'what's in it for me'. A person living in 1500's would give a damn what would benefit a world 2 seconds after they died, let alone hundreds of years. Firther every generation thinks the following one is 'going to hell'. Yet no one who proposes/supports these theories EVER addresses this area.Why? B/c they have no f'n idea or they be billionaires applying this ability to the stock market, gambling, etc. Hey but I'm on here too

Wonder what's up with Nicole now, is she still fighintg agaisnt joining?
Look how much weight she's lost and if anyone watches x Factor in the UK shes acting a bit crazy?!

There was an episode of uk x factor where she was acting really weird. Google/Youtube it…sorry if someone has already posted this info

If it takes being slutty and selling your soul to make it to the top of the mountain your not going to find what your looking for once you reach it.

Nicole is soo part of the illu !!!! Look at what she is doing, can you please give yourself a smak in the face and wake up ?!! It couldnt be more sluttier the lady is almost showing her …. Like please and do you even think that if nicole isnt a part you would see her face so often. Please I think she’s one of the biggest one. But yeah prayer is the key, God still loves them and all of you repent for the day is coming that the judgement will be released.
Please stay faithfull and keep yourself away from garbidge you deserve better and God wants to give you something better .
Repent , love you and bye mwauuhh

well, i don't know what's happening with Nicole, but I do know that after her departure from the PCD I haven't heard anything from her in a while. I guess she's trying to find herself and is realizing that she's getting older and compromising her morals and integrity for fame and fortune isn't the route (bummer.)
I hope that she can make a comeback, if it's in God's will for her.

its seems alot of people here believe in a literal hell and an embodiment of the devil? am i right?

Do you mean a literal pit of fire and mayhem where "bad" people go when they die to spend the rest of eternity?

Maybe, maybe not.

Do you mean a real-life hell where pop-stars and other members of the hoi-polloi have to sacrifice their free will, their minds, their ideas, and maybe even their loved-ones? Where someone's actions are constantly monitored and their life is not their own? Where cameras follow them around, gossip rags show their every flaw, and handlers control their every move? Where the label execs (analogous to the devil) take the lion's share of the money, often leaving the artists deep in financial and emotional debt?

Yes, I believe that happens. We've seen it happen many times.

I thought Pussycat Dolls were very successful? 2 US top 5 albums. 15 million sold. Perhaps they could be the next Spice Girls. She wished she's more slutty? The Pussycat videos were very sexual and sensual. Probably inappropriate for kids.

I think she's bemoaning the lack of solo success.

The Devil is a Liar

It's the same with katy perry..I remember watching her first real music video. It was simple,it was honest,it was conservative. You can't find that video anymore…anywhere.It's before she sold her sole to the industry as well. She even admitted to selling her sole because she wasn't becoming a star.

The devil was, before he became the devil,was the angel of music.

Yeah…they're going to kill her for these statements..

I am now a fan of hers. 🙂

That's why it's called the "MUSIC INDUSTRY". Cookie-cutter songs, Cookie-cutter stars. They make 'em and pump 'em out like cookies. Take advice from Jon Gomm. Do your own. If you don't know who Jon Gomm is, perhaps you should.

How can your grandfather be a priest?

She's probably protestant, not Catholic.


OMG B O S S I P blog site copied this entire entry, including the closing comment.. and there was no shout-out or anything..umm can you sue for that since they make money off of each click/view? .. IDK just trying to look out since their one of the many blogs trying to pursue people into thinking the ELITE/ILLUMINATI is a bunch of "crazy-mumbo-jumbo" yet every now and then they'll post a contradicting title or statement like: "Illuminati strikes again" or something condescending like that.

wayke is right, and days of the new wasn't a goth band!!!!

i thought so…she just went silent…its not worth it for real
