Big Fat Lie

Album: Big Fat Lie (2014)
  • This song was inspired by Scherzinger's struggles with an eating disorder. "I guess it's me finally being comfortable and confident enough in my skin where I'm able to really talk about some of the things that I always concealed," she told Digital Spy.

    "This is me finally being revealed. I think we all have our own big fat lies," Scherzinger continued. "The lies that we tell ourselves. You know, things aren't always what they seem. I think people will be able to relate to that. Part of where it came from is battling with an eating disorder for many years and recently, in the past few years, it's come out and people were talking to me about that."

    "I realized that, even though it was a hard subject for me to talk about, when I did I was able to help other people and inspire other people battling any disorders or any diseases themselves."
  • Scherzinger explained why she decided to title the album after this song: "I noticed I had not really addressed that on the album and 'Big Fat Lie', I went to (producer) The Dream with that personally and I was like: 'This is a big part of who I am and what has gotten me here. And what has gotten me to this place of strength,'" she said. "I decided to title the album that because things aren't always what they seem. Facing those issues head-on is what has gotten me to my most authentic place now and a courageous place to be able to talk about it a lot and deal with it. Everybody's wanting that, everybody's wanting that peace, everyone's wanting clarity and acceptance in their life."
