VIDEO: Major Pussycat Doll Drama!

Major drama is brewing as the Pussycat Dolls make their way across the country, on tour with Britney Spears for her Circus tour. 

The girl group, made up of singers Nicole Scherzinger, Melody Thorton, Jessica Sutta, and Ashley Roberts, has released their last two singles “Jai Ho” and “Hush Hush” under the odd name “The Pussycat Dolls featuring Nicole Scherzinger” 

At Friday night’s Phoenix show, 24-year-old Pussycat Doll member Melody Thorton vented her frustration regarding Nicole’s preferential treatment to her hometown audience.

She said, “I want to give a shout out to my family. Thank you so much for supporting me, even though I’m not featured. You know what I’m saying?”

She added, “I feel like it’s our responsibility to say to all the little girls and boys in the house tonight that myself and Ashley Roberts are examples that you can do anything you want to do. Don’t give up on your dreams and don’t let anyone stomp on you, ever!”

Let’s just say that the rest of the performance was pretty awkward.

Have your say in the comments: Are you surprised that Melody broke her silence about her feud with Nicole, or did you see it coming?
