Girl group’s racy new video is ‘pure filth’
Noughties girl group The Pussycat Dolls have left nothing the imagination for the music video for their first single together in a decade.
The reunited girl band - Nicole Scherzinger, 41, Ashley Roberts, 38, Kimberly Wyatt, 37, Carmit Bachar, 45, and Jessica Sutta, 37 (former member Melody Thornton has not returned to the group) - just dropped the much-anticipated video for comeback single React.
It's … a lot:
Returning member Wyatt told Hunger magazine this week of their comeback, which involved a world tour: "I'm just so grateful that this is actually happening because it's been years in the making,"
"It feels powerful, it feels exciting, there's a real determination to battle our unfinished business and create the best work that we ever have."
It comes after the group first teased a snippet of React during their first performance together in a decade late last year. Scherzinger and co delivered a spectacular medley of their hits on the UK's X Factor season final in December, in a racy performance that was labelled "borderline porn" by some shocked viewers.
"Highly inappropriate content for this time of the evening. Pussycat Dolls look like they belong in a strip club, not for prime time family viewing," complained one viewer.
One viewer whinged that it was an "absolutely disgraceful spectacle", while another wrote: "Their excessively revealing and totally inappropriate 'outfits' and S&M style dance moves wouldn't have been out of place on an adult channel!"
Reaction to the video from the Pussycat Dolls' fanbase today seems to be less pearl-clutching:
