Andrew Lloyd-Webber feuds with Nicole Sherzinger over Cats controversy


Celebrities never hold back when they're beefing huh?


In the latest celebrity slagging match, it features ex-Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and British musical composer Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Lloyd-Webber was left fuming as the Right There singer abandoned his show last minute - presumably for her new job as a judge on The X Factor UK.

Scherzinger, who was a judge for two seasons of the talent show, has pulled out of Cats on Broadway just before rehearsals began, according to him.

The X Factor judge was due to play the role of Grizabella in Cats but chose a judging role on the British reality show instead.

“A week before we were due to go into rehearsal for Cats on Broadway, which luckily I’m not producing, she calls me and says she’s decided she wants to do X Factor, having agreed everything...

“I’m furious because I really believe she’s the most fantastically talented girl and I went out on a limb to get her for the London Palladium here, and it makes me look like an absolute twot with them all.

But never mind, there’ll be another girl on Broadway and Nicole will not get her Tony award.”



Remind me to never get on the wrong side of Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Nicole Scherzinger has not yet commented on the musical theatre impresario's catty interview, but if she's got anything to do with X Factor I'm sure she's smiling like the cat who got the cream.
