In a week where tea is pouring faster than Rihanna releases albums, Nicole Scherzinger is next up next.
The former Pussycat Doll is set to feature on the next episode of VH1’s series ‘Behind The Music’, and in deviating from her usual brand of “PC” Scherzinger is laying it all out on the table. Most notably, her frankness on her time in the Platinum selling group.
Indeed, many would have paid to be a fly on the wall during PCD’s tenure; one which saw six people performing, yet only one (Scherzinger) singing. It’s a setup which dismayed many who saw ample potential in fellow member Melody Thornton.
Now, after a lengthy silence, the X Factor UK judge is breaking her silence. Peep a preview of ‘Behind The Music: Nicole Scherzinger’ below…
Sigh. The inauthentic nature of the group’s dynamic is likely the very reason no one cares about Nicole’s relentless solo ambition. A little sad given that she probably had no direct say in it, yet is taking the flack all the same.
Moral of the story? Industry players such as those who pieced together PCD need to understand there’s a lot of value in collectively pushing your “A”, “B”, and “C” players in a group. Of course, not in equal measure, but pushing all the same. For, when doing the opposite and shoving the likes of Nicole down people’s throats so aggressively, folk get full and regurgitate, resulting in cancelled solo albums and minimal public interest.
‘Behind The Music: Nicole Scherzinger’ airs this Sunday on VH1.
