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.
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…
Up until this year Melody Thorton was best known for the obligatory belted ad-libs found at the end of every Pussycat Dolls song. Since then Melody has been hard at work on her debut album, determined to make a name for herself as a solo artist before Nicole Scherzinger can.
On the heels of releasing her 10-track mixtape, ‘P.O.Y.B.L. (Piss On Your Black List)’ and a music video for ‘Lipstick & Guilt’, Thorton earned herself a gig singing ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ at the L.A. Marathon.
The national anthem is no easy song to sing as it requires a singer’s singer to appropriately tackle the technical complexity of its melody and the challenging vocal it demands.
