Nicole Scherzinger has spoken about her relationship with boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, saying they are "kindred spirits".
The X Factor judge told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "You have to love yourself first before you can expect it from someone else.
"And trust and communication are key... me and Lewis are from similar upbringings so we share a similar outlook. We're kindred spirits and hearts - that's what ultimately connects us."
She continued: "Ultimately, you want to be with someone you can be yourself around. My grandma taught me the person you want to be with isn't going to be Prince Charming.
"It's going to be the person you're able to work on a relationship with. It's always a work in progress, like everything."
