Inside the issue, the 34-year-old former lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls says she’s not ready to have kids for another few years at which time she’s going to be a hands-on mother because she doesn’t want anyone else raising her kids.
On her friendship with woman-beating felon Chris Brown: “I’ve known Chris since he started in the business. He’s like a little brother [to me]. He’s one of the most talented people in the industry.”
On her relationship with Formula One boyfriend Lewis Hamilton: “Lewis and I are a team and we’re really there for each other, and the time we spend together I do cherish, it’s separate from everything else. I know there are a lot of relationships who, you know… take Kanye West and Kim Kardashian… well, they’re perfect for the cameras. Lewis and I are a bit more subdued.”
On waiting to have children: “I’m not having someone else raise my kids. I think five years might be a good time to look at having children, but I think whenever it’s meant to happen is when it will happen. Right now, I’m focusing on my career. I see lots of women having beautiful children later in life now. And, if not, just freeze your eggs.”
On why she’s afraid to lose her fortune: “We couldn’t afford the luxury of getting a year book or school photos or anything like that. Mum got all my clothes from second-hand stores and garage sales. And to think of losing it scares me because I grew up with nothing.” – via Marie Claire UK Magazine.
