    Nicole Scherzinger, the ex-Pussycat Doll who is bigger in Europe than in the U.S., revealed that she passed on "We Found Love," which eventually became a monster hit for Rihanna.

    The song was written by Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, who features on the Ri version, for British singer Leona Lewis. She said "no thanks" so it was offered to Scherzinger, who also nixed it.

    "I passed on 'We Found Love,'" the singer said. "I've got the demo of that song and I was busy at the time. They'd sent me a few dance tracks and I wasn't able to get to them and I was like, 'Oh there's so much dance and I want to take a break from it.' That was my fault. I slept on it."

    You snooze, you lose.

    Do you think Nicole Scherzinger or Leona Lewis would have done a better version of "We Found Love" or is Rihanna's perfect?
