Pussycat Dolls defend band after it’s called not family-friendly
This Friday on an Australian morning show, Sunrise, the Pussycat Dolls threw a comeback performance. Sunrise is a morning show for families. Performance by the girls evoked an angry reaction from its’ viewers. With many moms hitting their social media and complaining about how inappropriate the performance by the girl band was.
Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta, and Carmit Bachar went live on Sydney’s Martin Place. And there they sang most of their blockbuster hits. Because of their sassy image over the years, the girl band again dressed up in their famous attires. But, this time it outraged many parents. They were dressed in black latex outfits and fishnet stockings.
Parents were not happy with the Pussycat Dolls attire
Many viewers went straight to Sunrise’s Facebook page. And there they blasted comments comparing the performance to a strip show which was hard to explain to their kids.
One mother commented:
‘I am sorry but not much dancing, to me it was more about s**. l think they are all too old for this. Not impressed, especially for a family show.’
Another infuriated parent said:
‘I don’t think dressing like a stripper is all that empowering,’ they wrote. ‘Becoming a doctor, lawyer or CEO is empowering.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.
The band has received similar reactions in the past too. They have been criticized for being too exotic.
In fact, their recent performance in February on Saturday Night takeaway received a very similar response. But, Ashley Roberts, 38, defended her group at the time saying:
‘We are wearing costumes. And they are sassy and fierce. We are owning our femininity and celebrating ourselves as women.’
