The Pussycat Dolls were one of the biggest girl groups ever. They were amazingly hot, and came out with some killer tracks to match their killer bodies. Born out of the burlesque scene, they took over the music industry and showed the world that other singers had no idea what the word "sexy" really meant. With timeless classics such as "Buttons" and "Don't cha," they've really made their mark on the music industry, and people will no doubt be playing their hits on the radio for years to come. It's a sad thing to look back and accept that we'll never see these beautiful girls together again, but all good things have to end sometime, I guess.
It seems inconceivable that the Pussycat Dolls managed to be so successful considering the fact that they only released two albums in their entire career. Critics and fans alike are still trying to wrap their head around the phenomenon that was The Pussycat Dolls. Why were they so popular? Nicole was the only real member who sang... The rest just kind of danced and looked hot. And Nicole herself wasn't that impressive or interesting - she definitely wasn't in the same league as Beyonce or J. Lo. So what gives? Were people just interested in this group because they were hot, young, and willing to show off a lot of skin? I guess the easy answer is yes - but you can't deny that this group also had a certain "Je ne sais quoi" that made them alluring.
At the end of the day, all we're left with are the hot pictures this girl group left behind. But that's not such a bad thing, right?
15 Flexible Girls
The Pussycat Dolls were such a huge phenomenon, albeit only for a few years. They had their time in the limelight, but quickly faded away. Each member of the band was ravishing, and it should come as no surprise that they sold millions of records. Their concerts also were pretty huge, and they pretty much always sold out. And if girls as hot as this were dancing on stage, I would show up too. These girls really know how to get the blood pumping.
On the far left you have Melody Thornton. She's the youngest member of this group, but she's all woman. Although she joined when she was in her teens, she fit right in and everyone loved her. Then you have Kimberly Wyatt, who always was the most vibrant in terms of her looks and her personality. You can see here that she's showing off a very sexy pose and she's so flexible. Then you have Nicole Scherzinger, arguably the main attraction of the group, and she's very sexy too. Then you have Jessica Sutta, the fiery redhead, and finally Ashley Roberts, the hot blonde.
14 Burlesque Origins
Not many people know this, but the Pussycat Dolls actually started out as a touring burlesque group. For those who aren't familiar with burlesque, it's basically a form of striptease that first started to gain popularity back in the 1930s and continued well into the 1950s in America. Burlesque went hand in hand with the famous prohibition era, where "speakeasies" formed in underground bars to illegally allow the consumption of alcohol and many other types of raucous behavior.
These days, burlesque is just as popular as it was back then, and it has achieved somewhat of a cult following. There are countless burlesque shows that are performed all across America, although Las Vegas is where most of the action happens. Looking at the Pussycat Dolls, it's easy to see the influence burlesque has had on their music.
13 Racy Babes
"Racy" might just be a word that is too mild to describe the Pussycat Dolls. Even though this was the 2000s, and things were starting to get a lot more risque in comparison to the 90s, the Pussycat Dolls were still pushing the boundaries when it came to just how sexual and explicit their public image was. This was clearly a tactic to get tons of publicity, and you know what? It worked! As soon as a lot of people laid eyes on these girls, they fell in love, and their fame was preordained after that.
And why shouldn't they make a profit out of their sexuality? No one is saying girls like them should be ashamed of their bodies. I for one think that these girls should be commended on finding a way to make incredible amounts of money with their talent, even if it was largely based on their physical appearance.
12 Kimberly Wyatt Loves To Stretch
Clearly Kimberly Wyatt loves to show off her body, and can you blame her? Of all the girls in this group, she probably has one of the finest bodies. She's also incredibly flexible, and she's capable of mouth-watering poses like this one. I'm not sure how she's managing to do this in heels, but it's clear that the stilettos make this pose extra sexy. This is the kind of picture that makes your jaw drop...
So how did Kimberly Wyatt get her body into such amazing shape. For those who are curious, she actually shared her secrets with the world in an interview: “I knew that it was imperative that I looked after myself and stayed fit, because there were 12 girls in the group when I first joined and we knew there were going to be cuts made in order to form the recording group. I didn’t want to be one of those cuts. I had to make sure I was eating right and working out. I did a lot of circuit training, jogging and hiking, I did some yoga, and of course, tons and tons of dance classes.”
11 The Hottest Girl In The Group?
There was one girl in the group who really stood out, from both an artistic and physical standpoint. This was of course none other than Nicole Scherzinger, who many believe is the hottest and most talented girl in the entire group. If you look at pictures of the Pussycat Dolls or videos of them dancing together, Nicole is always center stage. And considering how hot she is, this decision totally makes sense.
You might think that a girl like her has a strict diet. But according to her, she loved food! She admits: "Actually, I eat—a lot! Even with my crazy schedule, I never skip meals. I’ll often have soft-boiled eggs, smoked salmon, and whole-wheat toast for breakfast; cold cuts, veggies, and fruit for lunch; and usually chicken or fish with rice and more vegetables for dinner. But to really satisfy my cravings, I turn to my roots. I was born in Hawaii, so I love dried tuna dipped in soy sauce, kalua pig, banana pancakes with coconut syrup, and chocolate-covered macadamia nuts. My gosh, I could gain 10 pounds just talking about these foods!"
10 Ashley Roberts Is Delicious
Another favorite member of the Pussycat Dolls for a lot of fans was Ashley Roberts. This girl is absolutely delicious. She's still looking hotter than ever, and she definitely looks good enough to eat. She was always the more "out there" member of the group. She wasn't afraid to be herself, and that was probably a big reason why so many fans loved her. She brought something totally unique to the group, and her appearance was always vibrant and intoxicating.
But according to her, it was hard to break out of Nicole's shadow. She admits: “We were always told it was very much Nicole’s project. They said that we were the football team, and she was the quarterback. You know, we weren’t allowed to talk in interviews. We weren’t even allowed in the studio sometimes.” She also admits that the nervousness of the situation made her voice tighten up in the studio - and she was told that she couldn't sing. But now, she's starting her own singing career!
9 Melody Thornton Loves Naked Dresses
Another girl who made a big impact in the group was Melody Thornton. And she was definitely one of the hottest. As previously mentioned, she was one of the younger ones in the group, and was only a teenager when she joined. She actually auditioned and got in on the basis of her singing capabilities, but made more of a stir on the basis of her body. Since the group was disbanded, she continues to get people talking, most notably because of her love for so-called "naked dresses." She wore this sexy little number for a red carpet event, and it was completely transparent, from the head to the toe.
Speaking about her experience with the Pussycat Dolls, she revealed: "I was the only teenager in the group. I had no experience in the industry at all. Gears shifted, like quickly overnight. Nicole who was older than me, she had more experience, she had been in two groups prior and she had her own management. They wanted to get our first album out immediately so they wanted to give her as much responsibility as possible recording the first album, which I didn't like but I was like 'fine, we can do it.'"
8 Kaya Jones Is A Sight To Behold
Of all the Pussycat Dolls, Kaya Jones was always a welcome sight on the stage and in pictures with the rest of the Pussycat Dolls. She was originally a member of the group, but left before they had their big break because she said it wasn't "fun" anymore. Like many of the other girls in this group, she had no problems with showing off what she was born with. And she's positively blessed in certain areas. Her breasts are a glorious thing to behold, and I'm sure this has won her a ton of loyal fans.
She's not afraid to show off her curves, and now she's not afraid to share her political view either. She shared a post of her wearing a "Make America Great Again" shirt, followed by the caption: "The shirt I never was able to wear in fear of being attacked. My friends @joyvilla@officialandresoriano changed that for me and 60 million other Americans at the #Grammys. Thank you! Stand up for what you believe in! In the name of love ❤??❤#happyvalentinesday In honor of your strength you've given me the strength to say let's change the narrative!"
7 The Sultriest Music Group Ever?
The Pussycat Dolls were known for many things, including their many hit singles, and you've got to admit, these hits were pretty amazing. But they were also perhaps best known for their style of dress. Whenever these girls showed up at an event or a concert, you just had to gaze at them in wonderment. They dressed provocatively, to put it mildly. These girls really knew how to get someone's blood pumping, and that much is obvious from this picture.
Everything about these girls and their attire just screams sex appeal. Half of them are wearing little more than bras on their top half, and that just makes their ravishing nature seem even more enthralling. And half of them are also wearing sexy fishnet stockings that purposely have holes in them. You know exactly what kind of vibe these girls are going for with clothing items like these, and they are seriously nailing it.
6 They Sure Knew How To Sell Records...
Here's another interesting and undeniably hot picture of the Pussycat Dolls. On the far left, you have Kimberly, doing her signature splits in the air. How is she even doing this while she's wearing that tight spandex? It's one of the 7 wonders of the world. Moving right, we see what looks like Ashley showing off an incredible amount of juicy cleavage in that extremely low cut top. Up top we see Jessica Sutta, who is making sure her bandmate gets the full stretch. So hot! In the middle you have the insatiable Nicole, who is giving us that sexy mean look. And to the far right you have Melody, who is showing off those amazing legs of hers with an inviting, undeniably sexy pose.
But notice how Nicole seems to be so separate from the other girls. In truth it's pictures like these that illustrate why the group broke up in the first place. Everyone except Nicole seems to be very friendly, touching and getting close to one another. Nicole seems to be purposely separating herself from the other girls - she also has a facial expression that seems to indicate she thinks she's better than the others.
5 Glamorous Ladies
You can't deny the success these girls had in the brief time they were together. They made it big in an industry that is really unforgiving, and for that they deserve a round of applause. And that's exactly what they got - and more! These girls actually won many awards for their achievements in the music industry. This is a huge accomplishment, considering the fact that they only released 2 albums! They rivaled even the Spice Girls, who are the most successful all-girl group of all time. And in the end, they're still the fourth most successful all-girl group in history.
And don't they look cute posing with their award? They may have made their name dressing up in burlesque type outfits, but you can't deny that they look hot when they decide to glam it up as well. That's not to say that these outfits aren't revealing though. Some of these dresses are wonderfully tight and short, and they look insanely hot in them.
4 Letting It All Hang Out
When the Pussycat Dolls did photoshoots for publicity reasons, they looked hot as hell. But when they stepped up onto the stage, they took it to a whole new level. It should come as no surprise that concerts put on by the Pussycat Dolls drew in people of both genders, and these girls knew how to make both guys and girls drool when they danced on stage. There were numerous occasions when their clothes seemed to fail to cover their most intimate parts. Was this an accident? Or was this all part of the plan? One thing's for sure, the Pussycat Dolls themselves didn't seem to care, and the audience loved it.
One girl who showed off a lot on stage was Ashley Roberts. She is totally lost in her dance moves, and you can really see that she's passionate about the art of dancing. She explains: “It really was my job to be the best dancer I could be, to look good, to perfect the moves that made me unique in the group. I knew I needed to be an asset, so I always made that my focus. My work was my life. Becoming a Pussycat Doll and being a dancer was everything that I lived for.”
3 Showing It All On Stage
Another girl who showed off lots of skin on stage was Carmit. This burlesque babe seemed totally at home flaunting her most intimate parts on stage. Either she didn't notice that she was exposing herself, she didn't care, or she just pretended it didn't happen and kept going. Either way, she's hardly the first star to have a wardrobe malfunction on stage. She joins the ranks of Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, and many others who've "accidentally" shown off their amazing features on stage.
But sometimes their sensual, free-flowing form of dancing gets the Pussycat Dolls into trouble. When they were doing a concert in Malaysia, they went with their normal routine. However, I guess nobody told them that the country was heavily Muslim, and their brazen exposure of their hot bodies caused quite a stir in this country. It was all over the Malaysian news, and in the end the company that organized the concert was sued thousands of dollars for the "offense" to Muslim culture.
2 Nicole's World Famous Cleavage
Still, Nicole was always the main event, even when the other girls were winning awards for their contribution to the group. This was because the Pussycat Dolls really only had one singer, and Nicole even sang the backup vocals too, meaning the rest of the group did virtually nothing. There were even reports that Nicole traveled in her own tour bus, separate from the other girls right before they broke up. Still, you can't deny her hotness, and her cleavage is still a beautiful sight to behold.
Years later, she talks about how she's grown as a person: “I’m more accepting of my body now. I was always very critical of myself from a young age, and when I was 14, I started running. I would go outside in the middle of the night and run, because I thought I had to be thinner and that my thighs should look a certain way. But what really helps me is working out. Even if it’s not for very long, [I love] to get a sweat on to keep me focused and positive.”
1 That "Buttons" Music Video
But if you really want to see the Pussycat Dolls in all their glory, a few pictures just won't cut it. To really appreciate how hot these girls were, you have to see them dance. Although the best way to do this is to go to one of their concerts, there are a few problems with that. First of all, not everyone can afford that, and second of all, they're not even together anymore! But don't worry, we have a way to fix that...
Just watch their music video instead! There were a few really hot videos the Pussycat Dolls released, but arguably their hottest video ever was "Buttons," featuring Snoop Dogg. Getting a well known rapper like Snoop on their track was a genius business move, because they wanted to promote their upcoming album at the time. But with hot dance moves like these, did they really even need his help? You be the judge.
