Nicole Scherzinger Admits To Being PCD
She first found the spotlight with the help of reality TV, and a little known show called "Popstars". The result was girl group, Eden's Crush, aka "two-hit wonder" then she kind of disappeared for a bit, but her comeback came loud and clear! The year was 2003, the group was The Pussycat Dolls, and by 2005 their debut album, PCD, was climbing the charts (with the help of its singles). Their second album, Doll Domination, followed in 2008. There were 6 members in the group (sometimes 5), but there was always only one person singing lead in their videos and performances, and I always found that to be very odd.
Well, apparently I wasn't the only one who thought that because Nicole decided to address it in a recent interview:
"I love those girls. They’re like my sisters but people don’t even know the story. They have no idea. I was in the center because I was the one singing. I’ll never forget. I finished the album PCD and Ron and I brought the girls into the studio and we played it for them. And it was the first time they had ever heard the music. Do you understand what I’m saying? We played the album for the Pussycat Dolls. It was the first time they had ever heard the songs.”
Nicole claims that she did 95% of the vocals, and it seems Ron Fair is backing up Miss Diva:
“Melody sang a bit here and there, but the records were Nicole, with the exception of an occasional ad-lib. They were Nicole. It was her.”
All I am going to say is this: at least EC had 5 singers....my favorite female group will always be TLC, but after them comes Dream! (I know what you are thinking.....all that stuff about Aubs, and I didn't mention Danity Kane? Well you just answered your own question ;))
