Pussycat Dolls Spinoff Act Brings Back Doc Martens, Awkward Use Of Photoshop’s “Reflection” Tool

Apr 24th, 2008 // 15 Comments


The cover for the coming-too-soon album by the Pussycat Dolls spinoff quartet Girlicious–who, I found out while flipping around JetBlue last night, became a quartet at the last minute because the remaining finalists were just that hot–makes me wonder if Britney Spears’ Spirographic cover just made every art director out there decide that female-fronted pop acts should have CRAZY STARBURST BACKGROUNDS lurking behind them, so as to suggest fun, sexy ear candy. Wake me when everyone gets bored with that screen-saver-inspired art and starts putting flying toasters on their CD sleeves.

    Stop standing pigeon-toed, goddammit. You’re not 6 years old.

    @Superawesomerad: Oh yes she is. In Photoshop years at least.

    @Tenno: they do look very tiny for some reason, almost Bratz-esque

    Is this coming out before or after the proposed August release date of the 2nd PCD album? How does Nicole Scherzinger feel about this?

    @Superawesomerad: Perhaps it’s an homage to Elvis Costello.

    I was in London two weeks ago and saw some awesomely awesome purple Doc Marten boots in a store. The crappy exchange rate made me not buy them. Now I’m glad I don’t have them…

    I think I was just saying the other day how I wished for the return of Doc Martens. This is not what I had in mind, however.

    why’s it so wide?

    I didn’t watch this show, but were the contestants all 12-year-olds?

    After hearing Robin Whatsherface on some morning show talk about how the PCD were supposed to meld “pop and glam and punk,” I can only surmise that’s what they had in mind here. “Look! Combat boots, but in pretty colors!! Rising suns graphics–OMG!”

    @punkybunky: PCD are not nearly as punk as Avril Lavigne. Bitches need to recognize.

    They’re not even laced up right..

  14. grenadewitch

    None of them are punk. The Avengers, NOW THAT’S PUNK!
