“Her Name Is Nicole” Exists, Sort Of

Only Nicole Scherzinger’s floptastic solo debut has been rebranded as a Pussycat Dolls album, and retitled Doll Domination, and given a release date of tomorrow! From two writeups of Domination that hit newsstands today: “Not that the Pussycat Dolls are turning realistic. They are, after all, a burlesque dance troupe that was recast as a vocal group featuring Nicole Scherzinger. On the album she is credited with ‘all lead and background vocals,’ with the other four Dolls providing ‘additional’ vocals.” … “Scherzinger’s solo album was delayed after single ‘Baby Love’ and other club and download tracks failed to produce sufficient buzz. Four songs originally intended for that project are on Domination.” Not that I was wholly fooled by the other four Dolls finally getting identities of sorts, but surely Scherzinger must be wondering why she can only catch a break from the public if she’s operating under the umbrella of Robin Antin?
