I sang 95 percent of Pussycat Dolls songs, says Nicole Scherzinger
Nicole Scherzinger has revealed that not only was she the leader of the Pusssycat Dolls, she was the actual voice behind the all girl group.
Scherzinger, who is dating F1 ace Lewis Hamilton, also said that fellow "Dolls" Melody Thornton, 28, Ashley Roberts, 31, Kimberly Wyatt, 30, Jessica Sutta, 30, and Carmit Bachar, 38, were given undue credit during the pop group's heydays.
"I love those girls. They're like my sisters. But people don't even know the whole story," Us magazine quoted her as saying in 'VH1 Behind the Music special.'
"They have no idea. I was in the center because I was singing," she said.
The 34-year-old singer estimated that she "probably did 95 percent" of the singing "on my own" for the band's debut album, 'PCD.'
Executive producer Ron Fair supported the former 'X Factor' judge claims, and said, "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."
Though Scherzinger was the leader of the band, she said that she "never really talked about" performing the majority of group's vocals.
"I hope I don't get in trouble for the stuff that I say," she said.
"But 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. 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," she said.
