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."

This is why she's hot and this is why your not. All she is good for is a weekend of shagging. Say what you want but I'd like an opportunity to help her flex her vocal chords.

Nicole is a great entertainer. I loved watching and listening to her with the *****cat Dolls. She was hot and her voice was smokin'. Seeing her dance on Dancing with the Stars was exciting because she is a really, really talented dancer too.

I don't know the *****cat Dolls history, but I can say that the times I was in bands, it was always the most pushy people and not the best singers, who sang! I was was in a band with three people who sang well and two who didn't and guess who always sang leads? Which seems to be same kind of thing the quotes are hinting at.

really! really?    

Hard to know the truth behind Nicole's "confessions" or why she's making them now. Sounds like she has the worst PR manager ever. If she was indeed talented, why wasn't she promoted as a solo artist from the beginning? She seemed humble, grounded, genuine, and sweet on X-factor. If nothing else, the girl is absolutely beautiful and I for one am jealous. If there is a monster behind the mask then karma will catch up.

A friend of mine runs audio for live events, and one time worked a PD show. He said non of their mics were even PLUGGED IN except for Nicole's, and she sang to a backup track.

One a side note, how much work has this chick had done? She looks like MJ!

Nicole has been through a lot so she says but who of us has not. She seems reall bitchy and arrogant. She is old news. I mean they were a group and they succeeded as a group why cant she just give the girls who were apart of the group props as well. Maybe because she is a arrogant person and has to have the limelight all to herself. I know one thing I'll never purchase any music from her she sucks.

If the other gals knew Nicole was the one recording the albums, then they should STFU. They knew how it worked and continued to cash their checks anyway. If they had a problem with how things were going, they didn't have to stay in the group OR they could have renegotiated their contracts with PCD. Wah, wah, wah. Be thankful you were in a music group that actually was heard on the radio and get over yourself. You want spotlight...make it happen then. Quit your QQing.

She was just a background singer! If she was not on *****cat Dolls debut hit song "Don't Cha" then she was no more than a working musician who also had a side job doing *****cat doll stuff at the Vegas & sunset strip shows but that's it!!
