Former Pussycat Doll

Nicole Scherzinger Was

a Huge Diva

Former Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones is firing back at Nicole Scherzinger's recent diss towards the rest of her PCD bandmates ... claiming Nicole only sang most of PCD's songs because she REFUSED to share the spotlight.

Scherzinger made headlines this week, when a clip of her upcoming VH1 "Behind the Music" special revealed her true feelings about the girl group -- specifically Nicole claims to have sang 95% of PCD's songs on their first album (below).

TMZ spoke to former Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones -- who does NOT out right deny the claim -- but is adamant ... the only reason Nicole sang lead vocals for everything, is because "there was a lot more going on behind the scenes."

Kaya -- who starred in the group from 2003-06 with Nicole -- says, "Nicole was always someone who wanted to be in the spotlight and would do pretty much anything to get it."

She adds, "To call the other girls in the Pussycat Dolls 'window dressings' is a bit farfetched ... every girl in the group was talented."

"...specifically Nicole claims to HAVE SANG [my emphasis] 95% of PCD's songs..."

Shame on you TMZ...Where are your copy editors? Enjoying a spliff on company time? Either provide an intensive grammar-seminar on site for your lackluster "reporters"; or assume that your "youthful" writers were socially promoted throughout public school, and require constant grammar checks. "Have sang"? How glaringly ignorant!

Nicole Scherzinger may have been a diva -- and probably was -- but she also had a TREMENDOUS amount of vocal talent.

Didn't hurt that she was sexy as hell and could move.

But it sounds like this Kaya Jones -- never heard of her -- is pissed that she didn't make it.

Nobody's a Diva until they've had four black dudes carrying around a huge tent to block out the sun from touching their skin.

Who cares? PCD was a manufactured group that was more about looking sexy than it was actual music. They got lucky and had one hit. Nichole's solo career has gone nowhere, her acting in MIB3 was terrible, and she got fired after just one season on X-Factor. She's on her way to being a nobody very soon.

I remember when she was on the "reality show" Pop Stars! Many artists careers stall because they lack HUMILITY!

*****pretty much anything.....like....BANGING the head of the record company Jimmy Iovine...who is MARRIED. I've never liked Nicole S, there is just something about her that's not appealing. She's beautiful and can sing and dance...BUT something is off. >>BTW you could see the desperation when she was on DWTS always carrying on with the dramatics as if winning DWTS actually meant something...she acted as if her life depended on it..LOL

I don't like Nicole Scherzinger anymore because she reminds me of Kim Kardashian... just her face of course. It's not her fault but what can I do.

BTW, it IS "sung" NOT "sang". Sung is a 'participle' and it needs the verb 'have' to be correct; sang is a verb and stands alone. By using the word 'have', you reduce it to a participle and the correct word is 'sung'.
