Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton shoots Swiss Beatz's new video in Cannes
She's always had a reputation for being something of a good girl, with her fellow The X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos even describing her as 'sweet as pie' earlier this week.
But last night it was more of a case of the X-rated factor for Nicole Scherzinger, as she attempted to liven up her image with a very rude T-shirt.
The former Pussycat Dolls star headed out with a group of friends in Hollywood last night, wearing a top which had the slogan 'Van f***in' Halen' emblazoned on the front.

Nicole looked thrilled with her outfit choice as she enjoyed her evening out, and smiled and waved to photographers as she headed home after dinner and drinks at the Pink Taco restaurant.
While Nicole was partying in Hollywood, her F1 driver boyfriend Lewis Hamilton was busy working on the set of Swiss Beatz's new video in Cannes.
The pair have not been seen together since the beginning of the month, and have done little to deny rumours that their relationship is on the rocks following claims of Lewis enjoying a penthouse party with 10 women.

At the time, a source said Nicole was 'angry and embarrassed' by the story, which broke after Lewis was photographed checking into his hotel surrounded by a group of female friends.
The source said: 'She's angry, he's embarrassed her. It's not his typical behaviour, but of course she's not happy.
'However she knows he hasn't done anything wrong, but she's angry that he's been seen out like this while she's back in America.'

Nicole has since remained resolutely silent on claims of trouble in the pair's relationship, and has been keeping herself busy with the bootcamp stages of The X Factor.
In an interview with MTV earlier this week, Tulisa came forward to deny rumours of a rift between herself and Nicole, describing the singer as 'sweet as pie'.
said: 'She is sweet as pie, so you can’t expect any brawls this year as
it’s not gonna happen. She’s not the argumentative type, she’s just
there as a professional.
knows her stuff, she does her job and she is probably a very nice
judge. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, it adds a different
dynamic to the panel.'
