I dig this chick.

Name: Nicole Elikolani Prescovia Scherzinger
(for the curious minds, she's Hawaiian/Filipino/Russian)

Why People Care: She's the Beyonce of the Pussycat Dolls

Here's why I dig her...

This chick will not be denied. Granted, I have never heard her talk or read any interview on her but she OWNS her thing, you know? I just have this sense about her that NOBODY is going to pimp her for anything. Like PETA-fied Pamela Anderson and even Melyssa Ford: they own their image and NOBODY is going to play them for profit.

Now let me clarify...

She ain't selling world peace here. She's selling dreams.
The non-dry types for the young adolescent males and the 3-letter versions for grown men. And the girl does the damn thing, okay? Have you seen the "Buttons" video??? Ladies, tell the truth...did you not wanna be a PCD after seeing this?
I don't even like them!

(Okay fine...maybe it was just me, lol)

So way back in 2001, she won a spot in a pop group from the WB reality show Popstars. The winners of the show formed the group Eden's Crush and the rest was history--as in finito, flopped, expired. She didn't give up and she didn't alter her dream of stardom either. She simply licked her wounds and did it again. She tried out for Puffy's Making the The Band: Season 3 and didn't even make the final cut. (Irony:look at what's up now)

Anyhoo, point is that she knew who she was, her talents, and never sold herself out or short. She was determined to have her dreams fulfilled and she's doing it.

Gotta respect that!

I'm not a fan of these chicks (in fact, I may be a certified "I can't stand them" person), but this girl doesn't get on my nerves. It's actually just the whole concept of a huge group of women singing about the dumbest shit that bothers me.

I've always wondered why Nicole never ventured off on her own instead of trying out for different groups. I think she would have been just as successful as a solo artist, don't you think?

Nah, she was smart to get in a girl group. She did a Beyonce. Drag a whole bunch of other equally-fame-hungry chicks to buffer you as YOU do YOUR thing. That way, there's an actual demand for the solo gig. Gwen wouldn't be Gwen Stefani without No Doubt. Diana Ross wouldn't be Diana without the Supremes. They have to make sure people want to see them shine before they take that step, you know?

Makes sense to me;o)
