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."

So..the *****cat Dolls don't have anything positive to say about her, she was fired from X Factor U.S.--she may want to realize she isn't all that special.

Gee Wiz, Nicole can sing and she can dance. Oh, let's not forget that she is beautiful and we can see the cat is out with the claws. Jealously gets you no where. Let's not forget "TRUTH" she was on the UK version of X Factor before the US, so what really is your beef with Nicole other than jealously? hmmmm

Although I like her performances, she reminds of the Kardashians, also. That intense narcissium and "it's all
about me", attitude.

How is Nicole a bitch for stating the truth? The guy from the record label confirmed her statements and said she recorded practically the whole album. The other girls just lipsynched and danced around. Why should she give them credit when it isn't due?

Jeez, as if the *****-WTF were ever something one could describe as a "musicians". What a BS. These bitches came right from a casting laboratory of the music industry, with the only "talent" to shut up while selling their souls for a short moment of publicity.

It's over now. No producer will waste a good song for these wank assists. A bunch of new ***** cats is waiting right around the corner...

never thought much of the PCD..just a bunch of dance moves, smoke and mirrors..no real musical talent there. Men watched and listened because of their beauty.

Lol, why are they doing a vh1 special on her? She is a has-been now and her solo career tanked like a mother f*cker, so she did need the group cause she isn't sh*t without it. And yeah i agree, I think she always stole the spotlight. I always got annoyed with that when i heard their songs or watched their videos.. it's like damn, I thought this was a GROUP?

I dont care who did the music Nicole is a fine biabia. Look up the picture of her naked from behind with body paint on. That plump tail's got a gap in it.

Nicole is a fame whore. I dont buy anything she says. Her former bandmates side of the story makes far more sense.

I remember watching her interview on Conan where she made a big deal of him staring at her boobs....and Conan put her in her place calling out the fact her boobs were popping out of her dress. Dont want anyone staring, then dont have them out for the world to see. That's what attention whores do.

Screw that skank

How is this news?? Anyone who has seen Nicole on anything, particularly her 'performance' on XFactor, could guess that she loves the spotlight. But why would this girl stay with the PCD if this was true? Maybe because she also loves the spotlight?? And I think Nicole's short-lived, sad solo career speaks for itself. Obviously she needs the other PCD's for something!
