Leave it to X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger to think of the perfect Christmas present for all her friends — and without that pesky wrapping.

We have to extend props where they’re due. Mirror introduces this story about as hilariously as anyone could: “Cheeky Nicole Scherzinger has bared all for a daring new coffee table book celebrating women’s bums.” (Maybe it’s the British lingo that’s so tickling us Yanks here.)

But Mirror’s not kidding: if you click on the link, you’ll see Scherzinger in a uniquely “hindsight” way. And what, pray tell, is the name of this new and salacious book? Why, Culo — a word that means, in pretty much every Romance language... well, we’ll let you see for yourself.

So what should we make of this? Is “painted butts for Christmas” a good career move for Scherzinger, or should she have been a little more circumspect about telling Victoria’s secret?
