No, shes more at home on pages 8 and 9, living it up with Pixie Geldof and hanging with Henry Holland for London Eye. In fact, she rarely makes headlines for her singing -- which, since the tepidly received release of her 2007 debut My Conscience & I, has been largely limited to Hawley Arms sing- alongs. Instead, its her camaraderie with Amy Winehouse that has put Nicole into the spotlight. Were not speaking at the moment, sighs Nicole, 26, rolling her eyes over scrambled eggs in a cosy restaurant near her Highbury home. I supported her in 2007 and we got really close then but she hasnt been very supportive recently. Ive got nothing but love for her and miss her madly. I know well speak again but its like she has a lot of things that I want and maybe I have things she wants. Certainly Nicoles plans for her second album, Cupid Shoot Me, could do with the injection of a Wino-sized budget. Its a doo-woppy, Fifties girl group-themed record she considers empowering. Im thinking big, she says with the self-belief of Winehouse circa 2004. The ultimate would be a show at the Royal Albert Hall with a full orchestra. Huge. We havent played the album live yet but, weirdly, my inspiration is Beyonc. Not her songs -- some of them are a bit pony -- but her work ethic and how beautifully manicured her concerts are. In terms of how Winehouse might envy Nicole, things are a little less sparkly. I feel like Amy might be scared for me, that I might go down the same route she did. Maybe thats why she shows a lack of support. But I wont. Firstly, Ill never be as contro- versial as her and secondly I wont be tempted by drugs, Ive seen what its done to her. Okay, but I wonder whether They Didnt Need To Make Me Go To Rehab would be such a kicky karaoke song...
