Nicole scherzinger dating lewis hamilton 2016
It shouldn’t be shocking that perhaps the greatest driver on earth and a three-time World Champion of Formula 1—the highest class of single-seat auto racing in the world—would put some muscle behind his greeting, but this is Lewis Hamilton.
This is the party boy who sits front row on the runway, dates celebs like Nicole Scherzinger, gets twerked on by Rihanna, toasts with Pharrell and Kanye, flies in his own bright red private jet, and secretly records R&B tracks in his house when not racing for Mercedes-Benz.
On an overcast September afternoon in Midtown Manhattan, Hamilton sat down with Complex to discuss his American aspirations, his music, racial injustice, and why he keeps getting cease and desist letters.] That’s definitely been the goal. Ayrton Senna was my favorite driver who I wanted to be like.
That’s what I’ve worked towards for 23 years—I’ve been racing 23 years now. And I was like, “Hey sir, I’m Lewis Hamilton I just won the British Championship.
You don’t have to be passionate about just one thing in life. I was frustrated because I didn’t have the strength or the movement that I wanted to have in my voice. My dad always said, “Do your talking on the track.” So from day one, I always did my talking on the track. Can’t have a life outside.”  People used to complain, they used to write shit about me all the time. I party when I wanna party and I make sure I fit my work in, and I arrive and I win. And I think it appears like it is when it’s over, that we notice greatness. It’s always when someone’s passed, then it’s like, “Oh my God! They’ve done amazing but unfortunately not with the new and the now.
I just couldn’t maneuver it the way I wanted to maneuver it, but I caught the bug. “Let your results speak louder than anything you have to say. I’m here or I’m doing that or I’m traveling too much or I’m this. Social media, that’s a huge thing that’s been missed. The NBA and the sport shows are amazing with their entertainment.
I was like, “Okay, I’m gonna go and do my vocal lessons and practice and practice and practice and practice.” And I’ve progressed; I’ve got like 250 songs I’ve written or mostly co-written. And it was just like that every weekend we arrived. You don’t have to say anything to these people.” But you know, I had kids shouting stuff, teachers that told me, “You’re never going to be a racing driver. Like, I’m not allowed to take video at the race track. They need to somehow start bringing in that world because America’s kind of like the most important place in the world for music, even though there’s good music all around the world.] Well you meet these people in places and you just end up hanging out.
In terms of when—it’s definitely getting to a place where in my heart I feel like I’ve put so much into it that I’d love to share it with my fan base. You’ll never amount to nothing.” Just really just trying to pull you down. You generally vibe with someone’s energy and, you know, “Hey I’m gonna be back in town….” For example, Bella, Gigi, Kendall came to Monaco. Because we took pictures and we just put them in a chat and the friendship grows from there. And then some of them you really want their number so, you happen to be at an event and you go up and you do your thing.
During the show 22 year old Niall Sexton opted to sing the former Pussycat Doll’s song Run.
Started when I was eight, I’m 31 now, and that was always the goal: to be the best. One day I want to be a Formula 1 driver and World Champion in your car. I did want to do music, but I didn’t look at artists and say, “I want to do that.” It was different.
