‘I thought this was a religious site’: Ex-Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has fun with Haw Par Villa sculpture of man smoking opium, Entertainment News

She struts and promotes Singapore tourism at the same time.

American singer Nicole Scherzinger, formerly of The Pussycat Dolls, was recently in Singapore and posted photos and videos of herself at Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay in collaboration with the Singapore Tourism Board on May 1.

“I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been up to with Visit Singapore. Have you ever been?” The 45-year-old American captioned her sponsored post on Instagram.

The next day, Nicole posted an announcement via Instagram Reels, showing herself walking through Gardens by the Bay, Haw Par Villa and Sensoryscape on Sentosa, wearing four different elaborate outfits.

“Catwalks made in Singapore,” the advertisement said.

“Why was I ready for some of your vocals to kick in like this was a new single?” commented one internet user.

Visit Singapore wrote: “You have the best outfits for each of these local spots, Nicole.”

In a subsequent Instagram post, Nicole revealed a behind-the-scenes look at her adventures in Singapore.

At Haw Par Villa, he approached a sculpture sitting on a rock with a pipe and said, “I want to know what this guy is smoking.”

“I think this guy is smoking opium,” his cameraman said, laughing.

Nicole approached the camera and whispered, “I thought this was a religious site.”


Although Haw Par Villa is inspired by Chinese religions such as Taoism and Buddhism, it is a cultural park filled with more than 1,000 statues and 150 dioramas of Chinese myths and folklore.

Another video taken by Nicole shows a beach club in Sentosa with The Pussycat Dolls’ single Buttons playing over the speakers.

Nicole’s most recent post from Singapore on May 3 shows her dancing to Beyoncé’s new single, Texas Hold ‘Em, at Gardens by the Bay.

One clueless Internet user commented, echoing the song’s lyrics: “That’s right, this isn’t Texas… it’s Hawaii.”

Others were quick to point out that she was, in fact, in Singapore.

“Never stop dancing,” wrote another Internet user.

Nicole was the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls from 2003 to 2010 and again during their reunion between 2019 and 2021.

She has also been involved in musical theatre, performing in Cats (2014) and Sunset Boulevard in its recent run in London’s West End. She also played roles in Moana (2016) and the 2017 remake of Dirty Dancing.
