Hey guys, I need you take a seat and pay attention, because I need to talk to you about something that's been troubling me for far too long. There has been a girl group-sized void in pop music for far too long...
...and that's because we're going on FIVE WHOLE YEARS without the most important girl group, nay, BAND* in all of music history, THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS!!!
The Dolls were, for lack of a better word, iqoniq. You may not have known any of their names besides Nicole Scherzinger...but that didn't matter.
What did matter was that with just two studio albums, the Dolls dropped some of the biggest hits of the 2000s. Let me produce the receipts for you.
Obviously, you remember "Don't Cha," the one that started it all. But you probably forget how many bangerz The Pussycat Dolls REALLY had.
"Jai Ho" of course was an instant classic, and still holds up to the test of time. Who knew that you could produce a hit pop song inspired by Slumdog Millionaire, but somehow, the Dolls managed to do it.
"I Hate This Part" was the empowering breakup anthem you needed when your love life got rough.
"Hush Hush, Hush Hush" of course featured Nicole's LEGENDARY "I Will Survive" breakdown.
And then there was the slinky, sexy "Buttons," which every girl (and plenty of guys) had their own original choreography for.
We also can't forget about the other seminal entries into their flawless discography, like "Beep," "Stickwitu," "Wait A Minute," and "Bottle Pop."
But the Dolls weren't just a girl group; they were feminist icons whose only goal was to take over PLANET EARTH with their infectious jams and A+ choreography.
Remember "Top of the World," the theme song to Whitney Port's The City??? It totally gave you "breaking the glass ceiling" vibezzz.
And then there was "When I Grow Up," the ultimate anthem of empowerment. Seriously, the Dolls taught us to screw being gold diggers and start being GOAL DIGGERS.
SRSLY, if you pay attention to their lyrics, you realize the Dolls were all about mowing over fuckboys and #GIRLPOWER.
And PCD didn't just walk the walk; they talked the talk. Just check out this quote from Nicole in AskMen:
Girl power is about loving yourself and having confidence and strength from within.
