In a confession which is extremely unlikely to shock the music industry to its very core, Nicole Scherzinger has now revealed that she was the only voice on The Pussycat Dolls’ multi-million selling debut album, ‘PCD.’
Yes, if audiences hadn’t already cottoned on with the fact that no other member ever sang a solo line, or that the X-Factor judge hogged every scene in every video as if her life depended on it, or that anyone of the other girls could have been replaced with a cardboard cut-out without anyone really noticing, the 34-year-old has now made it official that the rest of the group were no better than Milli Vanilli.
In a completely transparent display of passive-aggressiveness, Scherzinger told VH1’s Behind The Music:
“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 centre because I was singing. I was the one singing.”
“I never really talked about it, but I’ll never forget I finished the album PCD and [producer] Ron [Fair] and I brought the girls into the studio and we played it for them, and it was the first time they’d 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’d ever heard the songs.”
If there are any fans of household names Carmit Bachar and Ashley Roberts suspecting that Scherzinger’s ego may have got out of control, then producer Ron Fair also backs her up:
“Melody sang a bit here and there but the records were Nicole, with the exception of an occasional ad lib. They were Nicole. They were created with her.”
Looks like Louis Walsh might have a rival on The X-Factor judging panel when it comes to stating the obvious.
