Nicole Scherzinger insists she has no plans to marry Lewis Hamilton as she wants to focus on her career
Nicole Scherzinger's career is more important than her relationship.
The Pussycat Dolls singer - who is dating racing driver Lewis Hamilton - insists getting married is the least of her priorities and she was "mortified" when it was suggested recently that she is set to walk down the aisle.
She said: "Someone asked me a general question about what I wanted in ten years and whether my ambitions included a family and then the next day it was in all the papers that 'Nicole wants to marry Lewis', when that was the last thing I said.
"In ten years time I would like to have accomplished a lot in my career - that is the most important thing to me. My dream is to do my own music one day, to have an unbelievable tour, to have done some musical theatre and some film and maybe to have opened up a performing arts school for special needs kids.
"That is my ultimate dream, not marriage."
Despite admitting that being in the public eye makes it difficult for the couple - who have been dating since November 2007 - to go out, one thing they always make time for is attending church together.
Nicole added: "Religion is an important bond. One of the most important things if you want to have longevity in a relationship is a good strong spiritual connection."
