For all of four years, the Pussycat Dolls dominated the Pop music landscape. Yet, with alarming swiftness, the ladies went their separate aways in 2010 amidst rumors of in-fighting and favouritism.
Fast forward to today, and like most disbanded groups, each member has gone on to experience varying levels of success in their solo ventures – the most notable being lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.
However, with the X Factor UK judge still trying to find her footing as a solo artist, it’s surprising (or perhaps not) that talk of a PCD reunion has surfaced – courtesy of former member Carmit Bachar (not pictured above).
During a recent interview with Maximo TV, the fiery redhead – who left the group prior to the release of sophomore album ‘Doll Domination’ – revealed that discussions are underway for a number of reunion themed projects.
Flip the hood to hear what she had to say…
Things have grown suspiciously quiet surrounding Ms. Scherzinger’s solo endeavours, so this may not be as far-fetched as it seems. What’s more, as history has shown, each of her singular endeavors is preceded by a PCD project. Could this be the case here? Time will tell, but there’s a few factors to consider – if a comeback is indeed on the cards.
In real-time, three years is not that long. Yet, in Pop years (especially when on hiatus), it’s an eternity. Hence, one has to wonder how -if at all- a reformed Pussycat Dolls would fit into the musical landscape; a landscape markedly different to the one that existed during their initial run.
One thing is certain, though; the all-Nicole motif of their yesteryear will have to be binned — or at least tweaked. We’re in the age of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. Artists are almost required to have relatable personalities that fans can buy into. Hence, the nameless, faceless, and voiceless approach to being a “group” simply won’t cut it this go round. And for the love of all things good, can Melody please be allowed to sing something other than one adlib per song?!
