The Pussycat Dolls have officially reunited and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for these ladies. One member, however, is noticeably missing – Melody Thornton.
Although the official Pussycat Dolls Instagram page follows all the members, including Melody, she has yet to repay the favour. The 35-year-old vocalist is also the only star who hasn’t change her Instagram display picture.
The “Dancing On Ice” star has remained mum on the matter. There’s no mention of the Pussycat Dolls reunion on her socials at all. Instead, she recently uploaded a video of her belting out a song on Today Extra. The aforementioned song in question, is her new single “Love Will Return”.
Does this mean Melody Thornton is pursuing her own solo career instead of doing both? There’s no question that the reality star contestant has always wanted a larger share of the singing parts. Nicole Scherzinger has always dominated 95% of the vocals across PCD’s first 2 records.
Melody has previously expressed that she has no desire to rejoin Pussycat Dolls. “I’m not the same at 34 as I was when I was 24. So the idea of getting together again sounds like a nightmare,” she was quoted as saying.
She explained about how she felt under-used as a vocalist, “They said, ‘we’re going to have Nicole do all of the recording, you’re going to have to learn to dance with the rest of the girls’. And for me it really affected my confidence because I wasn’t using my best asset (my voice). And I was the weakest dancer.”
Fellow group member Ashley Roberts also shed light on Melody Thornton’s absence, saying, “Mel’s got a lot of projects going on in life. She was included in all of this, she’s our sister, the door is always open, but it just wasn’t the right timing for her right now. We wish her well.”
We’re still keeping our fingers crossed though.
