Nicole Scherzinger has bared her backside for a new coffee table book. In the sepia print photo taken by photographer Raphael Mazzucco for "Culo By Mazzucco", the 33-year-old judge on "The X Factor (US)" poses with her back to the camera, exposing her butt, thighs and lower back that are decorated with intricate tribal tattoos.
In the shot, the former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls also has two leis being wrapped around her neck and a traditional island headdress adorning her head as a homage to her native Hawaii. She is one of the many female celebrities who flaunt their derrieres in the 248-page book edited by Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Interscope and A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine.
Lady GaGa shows off her assets in a black and white photo that sees her in a bra while pulling down her thong for some full moon exposure. Black Eyed Peas member Fergie (Stacy Ferguson), meanwhile, exposes her behind in a photo that captures her leaning against a wall with spread arms and legs.
Other stars featured in the coffee table book include "I Will Remember You" singer Sarah McLachlan, Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio, former "Baywatch" actress Pamela Anderson and George Clooney's current girlfriend Stacy Keibler. Keibler, in particular, has shared one of her photos in the book back in September.
"Culo by Mazzucco" is Mazzucco's ode to the wonderful shape of the modern woman. "There's a lot of inspiration, mostly the spontaneity and just to be able to work in a very free way," the photographer explained. "Each picture and the nature of the shooting was in so many different places in the world, so a lot of the photographs are very spontaneous and we just went with that. It's just so hard to compare each one or each girl, its just a whole different entity each time."
