Nicole Scherzinger claims her weight often fluctuates but she is usually a 'superhero' with a 'buff and lean' physique.
thinks she is a "lean, mean killing machine".
The "Don't Hold Your Breath" hitmaker - who is known for her trim and toned physique - admitted her weight tends to fluctuate between her having a "superhero" attitude and being a little more "relaxed" about her figure.
She explained, "My physique definitely takes work. But I fluctuate. Sometimes I'm in superhero mode and I'm all buff and lean, mean killing machine - but sometimes I let myself relax a little. At the moment I'm a little bit more relaxed."
"I love rice and pasta and chicken, fish and veggies. I'll always eat carbs - I don't believe in taking those away. Everything in moderation. I don't eat a lot of fried foods, naturally."
Nicole - who is dating Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton
- revealed although her weight often goes up and down, she has learned over the years to come to terms with her natural body shape.
She told Glamour magazine, "I've grown as a woman to just accept myself. You're not going to feel great all the time - so you've just not got to be hard on yourself."
"Right now I've probably gained a few pounds, but it's OK because at the right time I'll lose a couple of pounds. When I put my mind to it, I hit the gym."
