Pussycat Dolls‘ latest video, “Hush Hush; Hush Hush,” is noteworthy not just because the song’s title contains a semi-colon, which you don’t see every day, but because the song and video hold a lot of behind-the-scenes dramz. The song is from PCD’s Doll Domination. Doll Domination 2.0, but honestly, they could’ve just called it Doll Drama 2.0. Because…
1.) You won’t hear much of the other Dolls in “Hush Hush; Hush Hush.” Nicole Scherzinger recorded lead and background vocals on the song. No wonder Melody Thornton had some “words” during PCD’s concert in Phoenix this past April. That, and the fact that originally, “Hush Hush; Hush Hush” was originally tauted as “Pussycat Dolls featuring Nicole Scherzinger.” Ouch.
2.) In the beginning of the video, a super naked Nicole Scherzinger uses the PHONE in the bathtub, which is just SUCH a bad idea for a variety of reasons. Though not as bad as using a hair dryer in the bathtub, which you should REALLY never do.
3.) “Hush Hush; Hush Hush samples Gloria Gaynor‘s 1978 hit “I Will Survive,” and certainly the video’s disco scene is an homage to that era, while Nicole Scherzinger’s hair, makeup, and lame’ look are clearly an homage to Diana Ross.
4.) Yes, the DJ in the video is Perez Hilton. Modest, too, as he’s wearing a t-shirt that says “‘Hush Hush featuring Perez.” Perez has also appeared in Simple Plan’s “When I’m Gone” video, Eric Hutchinson‘s “Rock And Roll” video, and The White Tie Affair’s “Candle (Sick And Tired).” There’s also a quick cameo by Carmen Electra. Also, check out that cameo by HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition — it’s a teensy little fashion laptop that’s almost as pretty as Nicole. Hearts it!
