Nicole Scherzinger says Beyonce is ''a great hugger''.

The former Pussycat Doll has praised her fellow singer, describing the 'Drunk in Love' hitmaker as an inspiration and revealing she ''gives good'' cuddles.

She said: ''She's no stranger, we all know her, we all love her. I'm inspired by her in every way as a singer, as a performer, as a woman, very empowering.

''And she's a great hugger as well, gives good hugs.''

Meanwhile Nicole also paid tribute to 'Purple Rain' star Prince and called her friend a ''great mentor'' as she explained what the pop icon means to her.

She added: ''He is one of my favourite artists ever, I think most of the world can agree. And he's one of my favourite humans. A very good friend of mine.

''I've learnt so much from him, a great mentor, and I'm just inspired by every single one of his shows.

''I think I saw his last show recently here in London at Electric Ballroom. Probably the greatest performer I've ever seen.''

Prince isn't her only idol from the past, though, as she described Janet Jackson's song 'Love Will Never Do (Without You)' as a direct inspiration for her own track 'Your Love'.

She explained: ''This woman, although this song is a bit of a throwback, this song and video actually inspired my newest video and single 'Your Love'.

''This video I believe is the first video that Herb Ritts actually directed. It's a beautiful, classic video. It's timeless, and it just made me fall in love with Janet Jackson all over again.''
