Girl band the Pussycat Dolls has reunited with their first performance in a decade on The X Factor UK. The group performed a medley of their old hits, including ‘Buttons’ and ‘Don’t Cha’. They also threw in a new song, ‘React’.
As heard on Nikki’s Biz this morning (listen above!) the group looked amazing on stage! The timing of this reunion is no coincidence. It’s a great time in history for women’s empowerment. Lead singer Nicole Scherzinger also explained she needed to open up about her secret battle with bulimia, while bandmate Jessica Sutta battled alcoholism.
The risqué performance also attracted its fair share of controversy; reportedly, over 400 complaints were received by Ofcom, the UK’s broadcast regulator (the UK equivalent of Canada’s CRTC). Most offended viewers took issue with the band’s revealing spandex outfits.
