Nicole Scherzinger proud of ‘fun’ Pussycat Dolls

Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger says she’s “proud” of her work in the Pussycat Dolls.

The 32-year-old shot to fame as the lead singer of the R&B girl band alongside Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts and Melody Thornton.

Rumours of jealousy within the Pussycat Dolls began circulating at the end of last year, culminating in all of Nicole’s bandmates deciding to pursue solo projects.

Nicole looks back fondly at her time in the group and has no regrets about her time spent in the singing and dancing troupe. She is particularly proud of her vocal contributions to the band.

“The group had existed before as a dance group. Then they hired myself and Melody to come and record. I was really proud of my part in making the music,” she explained. “We wouldn’t have been able to sell tens of millions of albums if we didn’t have talent.”

As well as feeling proud of the Pussycat Dolls’ numerous hits, the gorgeous star thinks the group’s feminist ethos was also a fundamental element. She thinks the band encouraged women to be powerful, while at the same time enjoying life.

“We stood for fun, girl power,” enthused Nicole.
