Party like it’s 1999! Nicole Scherzinger wears androgynous tuxedo jacket to attend intimate Prince concert in Camden
She’s a huge fan of diminuitive pop singer, Prince, so Nicole Scherzinger looked thrilled to be going to see the man in question when he performed on Wednesday night.
The legendary act treated his fans to a secret gig at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, performing for just 300 select fans at a time in two special concerts.
He appeared on-stage behind a ‘squiggle’ microphone stand sporting an afro hairstyle and wearing a sleeveless leather top and flared trousers to perform his greatest hits as well as new material.

Suited and booted: Nicole Scherzinger was dressed to impress when she attended the Prince gig at Camden’s Electric Ballroom on Wednesday night
VIP guest Nicole looked stunning in an androgynous cropped blazer which had an 80s vibe to it. She teamed it with a plunging black and white jumpsuit which showed off her curves.
She gave herself a few extra inches in the height department by throwing on some sky-high stiletto shoes and by adding lots of volume into her loosely curled hair.
The Camden-based gig must have been a little different for pint-sized Prince as the last time he performed in London, it was during a 21-night residency at London’s O2 arena.

Taking the plunge: The singer wowed in a very low-cut outfit
He recently announced that he intends to play a string of dates in London in support of his forthcoming album Plectrum bsv electrum wallet, which he recorded with all-female trio 3RDEYEGIRL
The singer only announced the location of his Camden gig earlier in the day and thousands of fans queued for hours in the rain, despite not knowing details of the performances or ticket prices.
The doors to the venue opened at 7pm and each lucky fan paid just £10 to see the legendary singer perform with his new all-female band.

The set included new single Pretzelbodylogic, along with Let’s Go Crazy, Funk ‘n’ Roll, Guitar and She’s Always in My Hair. The comical singer changed the lyrics to, ‘always in Prince’s big curly hair’
Audience members shouted, ‘London loves you’, before he handed his guitar out to the crowd and dozens of fans surged forward.
He came back on for a second encore before fans were ejected from the venue and security let in hundreds more people who were still queuing outside for the second performance.
The pop superstar powered through several of his most famous hits, including When Doves Cry, Housequake, I Would Die 4 U and Purple Rain.
Rest: The singer, who was wearing high heels, got to put her feet up in the car
Luxury: The star had a comfortable white pillow to snuggle up to in the car
Prince has ruled out playing any large venues while in London with his band this month, hinting instead of his desire to play small club gigs.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music, he said he wants to play venues such as Ronnie Scott’s and the Bag O’ Nails Club in Soho – although details for future gigs are being kept under wraps.
He described his trip to London as ‘open-ended’ and told last night’s audience: ‘We’re gonna try and find somewhere else to play in this city. We’ll stay as long as you’ll have us.’
