Few musical acts have resumes as varied as that of the Pussycat Dolls. In addition to a "Stardoll" website, where kids can create their own Pussycat Doll ("Aimed at girls aged seven to 17")...and the Pussycat Dolls Lounge in Las Vegas ("Sin City's sexiest spot!")...and a reality TV show on the CW network ("Canceled due to low ratings")...well, in addition to all of that and more, the PCD are also a real, live recording group. You know, sort of.
Naysayers claim the PCD are, in reality, little more than lead singer Nicole Scherzinger and some great marketing. At Framed, of course, our focus is on music videos, so we really don't want to say too much about the music itself. Other than, whenever you get a bunch of really hot girls to dress and pose suggestively: well, heck, that's a song in itself.
Our video this week is "I Hate This Part," from PCD's recent Doll Domination album. It shows Nicole pretending to play the piano while the rest of the PCD troupe looks good in situations that have nothing to do with anything. A wolf appears. Nicole goes for a walk in the desert. It rains. The glaciers recede. The reader looks for a blog that will hold his or her interest, if only momentarily.
That's pretty much the whole video. Is it art of the highest order? Well, that's up to you, and we eagerly await your verdict.
