Nicole Scherzinger thinks everyone is The Pussycat Dolls. The singer is the only remaining original member of the group but insists she has no idea what the future holds for them, despite founder and manager Robin Antin recently hiring four new women to join Nicole.
"I don't know what's going on with that. There's always the speckles [speculations]," Nicole said when asked about the rest of the group being recast. "There's the Dolls from the lounge and Vegas and all that, so I'd say everyone is a Pussycat Doll actually."
Seemingly alluding to how she was purposefully being vague, Nicole then added, "Do you like how I'm answering these questions?" Robin has previously said the group are on a break and will return with a new line up consisting of Nicole alongside Vanessa Curry, Kherington Payne, Rino Nakasone Razalan and Jamie Lee Ruiz.

Although we lost another dancer to an injury on So You Think You Can Dance, one underdog contestant finally gave a star-making performance – and HollywoodLife.com was there to witness it in person!
I can’t believe we’re almost down to the wire on So You Think You Can Dance this year! It was a shame to see Billy Bell sit out on last night’s show due to a knee injury, but the show itself was pretty epic as it celebrated its 150th episode – mostly because I was in shock when contestant Adechike Torbert Finally won me over!
Adechike’s star finally rose in an emotionally charged hip-hop performance alongside all-star Comfort Fedoke. The two were so into the dance that Adechike finished in tears; the judges all agreed it was like watching a film. The contemporary dancer from Brooklyn was also part of another dramatic routine, »

Nicole Scherzinger's driving terrifies her boyfriend. The Pussycat Dolls singer, who reconciled her two-year romance with Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton in February after a brief split, admits she ignores her lover's advice when she is behind the wheel, leaving him more worried than when he is competing in a dangerous high-speed race.
"He's more afraid when he's with me and I'm driving than he is during a race," she said. "He gives me pointers, but at the end of the day he's like, 'Babe, you're driving with your knees!' I'm doing my makeup, changing the radio. I guess it's appropriate that I just did a song with Slash and Alice Cooper called 'Baby Can't Drive.' "
The 31-year-old star also admitted she has a crush on actress Halle Berry. She added in an interview with Maxim magazine, "She's just naturally gorgeous...I love her smile. Wait, I »
The 21-year-old dancer is one of the members of Vocal Adrenaline, the show choir nemesis of William McKinley High's underdog glee club New Directions. In Tuesday's (June 1) episode "Funk," our heroes get discouraged after seeing Vocal Adrenaline kicking butt as usual, so it's up to Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) to raise their morale.
Although Gottlieb enjoys being the villain on "Glee," the actors' heartbreaking performances sometimes make it hard to play the bad guy.
"It's crazy and we love it because we're all together, so we just ham it up all day," she tells Zap2it. "But it's really sad to look over when we're shooting a scene with the main cast and Lea Michele is almost in tears. It's really sad. I'm definitely not that person to just stand »

The Pussycat Dolls are recruiting from reality dance shows. Huh, we guess "The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll" competition show wasn't too fruitful.
"So You Think You Can Dance" contestant Kherington Payne and "America's Best Dance Crew" runner-up Rino Nakasone-Razalan have joined the famous burlesque group founded by Robin Antin, reports MTV news.
Other new faces include former Lakers Girl Vanessa Curry and former Girlicious member Jamie Lee Ruiz.
Payne, 20, was a Top 10 finalist on the fourth season of Fox's "Sytycd" and has since been seen on the big-screen "Fame" remake and on the "Hairography" episode of "Glee."
"Thank you Everyone for the love and support!" tweeted Payne. "It means the world to me/us! Love you all :) xoxo."
Nakasone-Razalan, 29, of Japan was part of the second-place Beat Freaks on "Abdc" and before that was one of Gwen Stefani's Harajuku girl dancers.
Antin also tweeted a photo »

The five-piece girl band is prepping for their new album, and will start recording soon after Nicole, who is currently among the final three, is done with her stint on U.S. TV show "Dancing with the Stars »
It must be rough to revive a film franchise that offers no opportunity for mainstream merchandising via toys, lunchboxes, and backpacks. The lack thereof probably torpedoes a good many films that deserve to be made but just aren’t “commercially viable” due to a lack of avenues for alternate profit. Take Fame, for example. Back when the original film debuted there was a television spin-off that followed shortly thereafter. With the remake of last year, there are similar talks of an accompanying television series, but there’s also a full-court press into a new industry that didn’t possess nearly the steam that it does now: direct-to-dvd (or video, back then) workout features. This new incarnation of Fame has done just that, and well, the results are rather ho-hum.

The remake of the 1980's musical Fame (1980), hit the theaters this fall and fans instantly declared it a hit. The cast gelled perfectly, the music was infectious, and the dancing was beyond amazing. The updated version delivered a youthful and colorful performance from the stars of the New York Academy of Performing Arts. Fighting for the elusive fame, these students work endlessly honing their craft and pushing themselves to the brink, all in hopes of superstardom. The film reminds us to go for our dreams, regardless of our obstacles, and to follow through in life to achieve ultimate success. Promising immortality, the chorus to the headlining song Fame (2009) is what drives these students day in and day out. Despite family drama, friendship slip-ups, and school headaches, these students spend four years perfecting their skills, in hopes of showcasing their talent and moving onward with their dreams after graduation. Watching others grab success, »

Our pop culture-obsessed world can catapult people at any time from obscurity to fame. It could be a flash in the pan or something longer lasting, with timing and circumstance determining someone’s longevity. Actual talent may help but over the last decade has proven to be less and less important.
A movie exploring these themes would be an interesting experience and deserves to be made. The remake of Fame could have been that but chose not to be much of anything instead.
The Alan Parker movie was a product of its times and was an R-rated, tough drama about the difficulties standing in the way of those lucky enough to attend New York’s School of Performing Arts. In addition to their artistic pursuit, it was still high school with academics emphasized since those who did not “make it” had a grounding to help with alternate options. It was a little bit grim, »

Chicago – My general thoughts on “Fame” are best articulated by Joel Hodgson and his robot friends from “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” During their infamous commentary on “Mitchell,” Joel points to one of the young actors on the screen and says, “Hey it’s one of the kids from ‘Fame!’” “Which one?” asks his robotic companion. Joel’s response: “Any of ‘em.”
None of the young stars in director Alan Parker’s 1980 original film have gone on to become household names. Irene Cara came the closest when she won an Oscar for her song in “Flashdance,” but her fame quickly petered out in the mid-80s. Though Parker’s musical drama may have failed as a launching pad for lucrative careers, it did succeed as an unsentimental and thoroughly entertaining depiction of life as an aspiring performing artist.
Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0
