Nicole Scherzinger Bares Her Backside in New Book

Updated

Raphael Mazzucco

Talk about the bella vita.

The X Factor judge and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger shows off her greatest assets as she poses in the nude for a new coffee table book celebrating the female backside.

In Culo by Mazzuccoculo is an Italian word for buttocks – Scherzinger, along with stars like Lady Gaga and Fergie, didn’t leave much to the imagination in the name of art.

Scherzinger, 33, pays homage to her hometown, Honolulu, Hawaii, in a sepia portrait appearing in the book, which is a collaboration between Sean "Diddy" Combs, Interscope-Geffen-A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine and fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco (available in stores now).

With a lei wrapped around her neck and her skin decorated with henna tattoos, Scherzinger turns her bare back to the camera.

“Raphael is a true artist,” Diddy says of the famed fashion photographer in a press release for the book. “He relies on instinct, capturing a raw, natural sense of beauty through his lens.”

And for those who want a bottom like Scherzinger, the Hollywood hard body recently revealed her secrets. “My new motto is: Stay active, eat everything in moderation and stop being so tough on myself,” she told Shape. “It’s taken a long time to get here.”
