Recession beating Nicole Scherzinger got a very satisfying pay cheque this week, after being paid a whopping million dollars for a 45 minute show at the Dubai World Trade Centre for Emirates NDB Bank.
An insider told The Sun, "Even Nicole can't turn down that sort of cash. It didn't take too much time out of her schedule and she was flown in and out of Dubai in first class. It's easy money."
After the performance, Nicole returned to LA which is where she's based. Nicole will be spending time in the UK too - she's returning to her judges' chair on the X Factor.
Nicole told the Sun that although she's famed for her sweetness, she's not a pushover - which is why she's a great judge. "I've done this for a long time, I've got a lot of experience and I know what I'm looking for. At the end of the day, I know who has it and who doesn't."
Nicole was recently filmed saying that Tulisa was "damn sexy" and "has a hot pair of puppies on her" during an Xtra Factor segment.
