Former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones has hit back at Nicole Scherzinger.
Scherzinger, in her upcoming VH1 Behind the Music special, claimed that she did 95% of the singing herself for the group and that the rest of the Pussycat Dolls did not record any vocals for their albums.
Jones told US gossip website TMZ: "There was a lot more going on behind the scenes. Nicole was always someone who wanted to be in the spotlight and would do pretty much anything to get it."
"To call the other girls in the Pussycat Dolls 'window dressings' is a bit far-fetched … every girl in the group was talented."
Scherzinger, in her upcoming documentary, stated:
"I hope I don’t get in trouble for the stuff that I say but I’ll never forget I finished the album, PCD, and [executive producer] Ron [Fair] 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."
The Pussycat Dolls used to be signed to A&M Records, and Ron Fair who was President of A&M Records at the time confirmed what Scherzinger claimed about being not only the lead vocalist, but the only vocalist:
"Melody sang a bit, here and there, but the records were Nicole, with the exception of the occasional ad lib."
A new version of the Pussycat Dolls with an all new line-up was announced in 2011, but they have yet to have any chart success.
