Nicole Safft (born 19 November 1975), professionally known as Rollergirl, is a German singer with a number of successful tracks such as "Dear Jessie" (a loose cover of a Madonna song) and "Luv U More", the latter being a cover of a song by Sunscreem.

Biography[edit]

The love for rollerskates developed early when working at a rollerskating rink. Safft was discovered by German producer Alex Christensen on Majorca and signed up for auditions. In 1999, Christensen produced the song "Dear Jessie" for Rollergirl, which was successful as the opening song at a techno-parade in the United Kingdom, where Safft continued to work using the stage name, 'Nicci Juice'. The pseudonym Rollergirl was taken from Heather Graham's role as a naive young porn starlet in the film Boogie Nights.

"Geisha Dreams" (2002) was Rollergirl's last release before she retired to focus on her private life, around Christensen and their son, born in 2003. Safft has also appeared with Daniel Hartwig as co-presenter of the German television channel RTL 2's The Dome and Megaman 2002.
