Guilty Pleasures – The Pussycat Dolls

I had a tough time which song of theirs to choose as this week’s Guilty Pleasure.  Then it occurred to me that GPs don’t have to be one particular song, it could be the collected works of an (ahem) artist.

Why are the Pussycat Dolls a guilty pleasure?  Mainly, they didn’t even start off as a musical act – they were a burlesque troupe.  Gotta say, I don’t get burlesque.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been a fan of the Canadian Ballet, but burlesque is different.  It’s considered art now, probably because a) they don’t get fully undressed, b) the routines have some comedic elements, and c) the women are not your usual ballerinas.  Ok, I’ll say it – they’re usually fat and ugly.  We went to a fundraiser last year for the Ann Arbor Summer Festival that featured a burlesque show.  The dancers there looked like what I imagine I would see at a run-down strip joint in Gozad, Nebraska.

Anyway, PCD evolved to a musical act headed by the lovely Nicole Scherzinger.  She’s a multi-talented, half-Filipino (Represent!!) with a nice voice and killer dance moves.  A year or so ago she used those dance skills to win “Dancing with the Stars”, where she was basically better than some of the professional dancers the show uses.  The music is your typical bubblegum pop stuff – nothing’s going to make the Smithsonian in 20 years, but still very catchy, fun-loving, and danceable.

I know what you’re thinking… I only like them because they are smoking hot.  And your point is?

Posting two videos from them.  This first one was a remake of the song that won the Oscar for Best Original Song, from the movie “Slumdog Millionaire”.    Even they can make a silly Bollywood dance routine look good.

Here’s another…

    This was published October 29, 2010Since then, there has been atnhoer article about Pelosi threatening to help take Barry down and the Clintons and Pelosi getting cozy along with Biden getting cozy with the Clintons, too. I think something is up.* * * * * * * *Drowning Power Grasps At Any StrawThis is just a guess/theory. From the many articles that have come forward re: Barry’s’ melt down and is Lost , I think he was given the ultimatum Either deliver the votes for the Dems or get 86 thd. As most know, a drowning man grasps at any straw. Sotoero’s last performance on Jon Stewart’s show was so bad by Barack, the fool, didn’t even know he was being laughed at instead of with. He sure looked like a drowning man.The LAVISH trip to India being done on the tax payers’ dollar is their last HURRAH! It is especially so if the Repubs win almost as big as predicted. Therefore Obama and the Dems have to do any and whatever they can to hold on to the straw of their drowning power. If using voter fraud, votes from prisoners, non proven citizens, faulty ballots that keep checking the wrong candidate, dead voters, and repetitive voters and they get caught so what. They will have created enough of a cluster flock to cause confusion and delay to hold onto power maybe just long enough to buy off some whore judge to rule they won. This will put a wet blanket on our expected victory. Isn’t this how Al Franken stole his Senate seat? Then, maybe the O’zeros can return victorious from India. Aren’t these methods the same taqiya practices the Muslims use to infiltrate and sneak laws in favor of Muslims in America and every other Western country, today?If, in spite of all the voting cluster flock they are creating, we still come out with the tsunami victory as predicted, Obama will never complete his term. His own party is planning to take him out on incompetency . Maybe, just maybe the Obama’s may simply stay in India and live off all the money they plundered from the American treasury, BP, and every where else they sold pieces of America.If the voters are once again robbed of their vote by these vile criminals, the anger that has been building will intensify. People who have lost their jobs, homes, and families have nothing to lose but their lives can become very dangerous. As all who still have their wits about them know, if the Dems should continue to hold power, it isn’t going to get any better. Obama pretty much knows he will be a one term president, so he will use his last two years to do major damage to America a third world war, a civil uprising that would permit him to declare martial law so he could turn all the foreign troops on American soil, his private army, and the Muslims trained in the 37 camps across America upon us, we the people who are now classified as homeland terrorists in the Homeland Security Report. These are dangerous times and this is a dangerous election. The Dems are drowning. Be prepared for surprises and be surprised at nothing.* * * * * * * * *Well, thank goodness, the voters were not robbed of their vote thanks to all the watch dogs across the nation. This means Sotoero failed to deliver what his puppet masters ordered him to deliver. If your puppet were broken and every thing you tried to fix it failed, what would you do with the puppet. It isn’t nice to fool the puppet master . . .or is that it isn’t nice to fool mother nature. Between now and the end of this month I believe there’s gonna be a whole lot of shakin goin on.
