Don't cha wish The Pussycat Dolls would make a comeback?
Well, lucky you, because it's been announced that the girl group is set to reunite... it's only taken them a decade! It's also taken quite a hefty amount of cash to persuade these ladies to get back together.
I mean, they've all been busy, right?
Keep scrolling to learn all about the reunion and what everyone's been up to for the last ten years.
Trust me, some of the Pussycat Dolls really have been busy!
Look how young they once were!Well naturally... everyone's young at some point. Unless you were born old, like Brad Pit in The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
The Pussycat Dolls brought serious dance back to pop music.Forget rubbing bods against walls and smoldering glances towards to cameras, something we endured from other girl groups in the early noughties. The Pussycat Dolls were a group that was designed to dance. The girl group, hailing from Los Angeles, was as much a dance troupe as they were singers.
The group began with a burlesque choreographer, Robin Antin.Antin actually thought up "The Pussycat Dolls" in 1995 as a burlesque troupe. After the act gained widespread acclaim, the concept was bought up by A&M Records. This was when Nicole and the girls were roped in and The Pussycat Dolls that we remember today was born. Robin Antin remained involved as the girl group's choreographer.
The Pussycat Dolls had a string of successful hits.The self-titled debut album was released in 2005 and sold over 3 million copies in the U.S. alone.
"Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)."One of the group's most successful tracks you might remember was "Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)." Inspired by the song at the end of the hit movie, Slumdog Millionaire, The Pussycat Dolls took the melody and made their own version. Despite the song's success, the group went on a hiatus shortly after.
Being a Pussycat Doll wasn't always easy...Nicole Scherzinger has since opened up about how the skimpy costumes and critical reception that the girls received led to her developing an eating disorder. Scherzinger was not comfortable revealing her body and has revealed that she spent years battling bulimia. Speaking to The Independent in 2014, she recalled: "I had started losing my voice, I couldn’t sing at shows, and then I remember my manager finding me passed out on the floor in Malta or in the south of France. I thought, ‘I’m going to lose everything I love if I don’t love myself.'"
The hiatus gave all of the Pussycat Dolls an opportunity to explore different avenues.So, have you kept up with all of The Pussycat Dolls for the last ten years, or have some of them slipped off your radar? I can safely say that a few of them slipped off mine!
Remember Carmit Bachar?An original Pussycat Doll member, Bachar was actually one of the main vocalists. However, Carmit left the group before they announced the hiatus. She actually decided to leave-leave in February 2008. She left to move on to fresh pastures. Something that she certainly has done! The singer is now in a band called LadyStation and has acted in a few movies. You might remember catching Bachar in a few of my favorite movies! (13 going on 30 and Along Came Polly). She's also now a mommy to an adorable daughter, Keala.
Ladystation is described as an "electro-pop" band.
