The Pussycats Dolls reunion has been rumored in earnest, with multiple sources confirming that plans for a PCD regrouping have accelerated only to stall. On several separate occasions.
However, it appears it’s finally all systems go – and there’s an interesting development that may be the key catalyst for everything moving ahead this go round. And it centers around ownership.
Earlier this week, UK newspaper The Sun reported that the Pop ensemble would be returning for a world tour after lead Nicole Scherzinger was offered a lucrative multi-million dollar deal for the venture.
Now, Variety are co-signing the news, citing sources close to the songbird – who, in recent years, has found success as a judge on talent shows globally.
Per the latest report, Scherzinger will begin recording material for the new Dolls project today.
Perhaps most interesting, though, is the revelation that she’s believed to have recently purchased part of the rights to the group from its creator, choreographer Robin Antin.
This being notable because unconfirmed reports cited alleged conflict with Antin (who has, over the years, announced multiple “new generation” Pussycat Doll line-ups) as one reason a reunion had yet to happen.
With Scherzinger seemingly at the helm, it’ll be intriguing to observe what the 2020 configuration of the Dolls looks and sounds like. From which members will be back and how the spotlight is distributed, to what sound they embrace in an altogether different music climate. Interesting times are no doubt ahead.
