  • Quotes

    • Kimberly Wyatt: (on the album "Doll Domination") There are some really up-tempo, fun songs but there's also songs that show the sensitive and vulnerable sides of the Pussycat Dolls. We've messed around with a lot of genres and the sound is something different from what we've done before. I'd even say it's a bit like Coldplay! It's kind of got an indie-rock vibe.

    • Kimberly Wyatt: (on when the Dolls are called "strippers") I get upset at the way some people talk about us. They dismiss us as if we're strippers, but we're not like that at all. I've trained for this all my life. I did tap-dancing, jazz, and ballet. But at the end of the day, people just want to put you in some sort of box. With us, that box is always marked "raunchy." But the most important thing to me is that I am honest and feel good about myself. If people insist on calling me raunchy, well, then maybe I am raunchy. But I'm comfortable with who I am and how I present myself.

    • Nicole Scherzinger: We're very sensitive about what we do, or don't do. We're sassy and classy.

    • Nicole Scherzinger: All I could say was, go get our album. And God bless you.

    • Nicole Scherzinger: We don't take ourselves too seriously. I don't think we're trying to be anything that we're not. We're not, like, trying to reinvent the wheel or anything.

    • Jessica Sutta (at opening Harrods) : My favourite part was meeting the kittens. All the other girls had kittens that were scratching and biting but mine was really chilled out. A real-life pussycat, just like us. We're thrilled to be able to wear all of this fancy jewellery. I've never worn anything like it. I'm going to have a word with Mohamed to see if I can keep some of it.

  • Such amazing voices!

    I love the Pussycat Dolls! Those girls have such amazing voices, and their music is so much fun to listen to! I love their dance songs like Buttons, Don't Cha, and Beep, but their ballad, Stickwitu, makes me want to cry! It's such a sweet, romantic song, and it just makes me so emotional! I love that song!



    I cannot wait to hear more from these girls. They have some awesome voices, and their music is so neat! Very unique songs and full of energy.



    I don't have their CD PCD, but I would really love to get it. I've only heard a few of their songs, but I'm sure the rest of the CD is great!moreless
  • They are hot, raw, freaky AND fun at the same time! Oh, so great.

    The pussycat dolls are so awesome, they sing and dance at the same time. They began back in the 90s, as a busqueler troupe, owned by Johnny Depp, called the 'Viper Room', hosted in Las Vegas. But right now, the group grown into a singing group that is well known around the world! I love that they perform everything a little sexy, like with 'don't cha' and 'buttons', but also have a natural and sweet side, with stickwitu and how many times how many lies, just like the normal living. I like the way they mix it all together up. It's fun, it's sweet, it's sexy, it HOT! THEY ARE AWESOME! For more info about Nicole Scherzinger, the leaddoll of the group, go to Nicolefan.com. It is my website ^^.moreless
