Nicole Scherzinger looked practically purr-fect onstage with the Pussycat Dolls while in her 20s. 

Yet once the lights dimmed, the singer and former X Factorjudge says, she went to unhealthy measures to stay slim,battling bulimia for eight years before finally getting help. 

"I had such a great life on the outside, the Dolls were on top of the world, but I was miserable on the inside," she reveals in the August issue of Cosmopolitanmagazine in the U.K. "I’m never letting that happen again." 

Scherzinger, 36, went public with her bulimia struggle in 2012 and admits talking about her long-secret eating disorder is still difficult.

"It is such a horrible, paralyzing disease and it was such a dark time for me," she says. "I didn't think anyone knew in my group or in my family because I hid it that well, I was so ashamed. I knew it wasn't normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating. It was my drug, my addiction. It's an endless vicious cycle."
