Women we love: that Pussycat Doll

I think her name is Nicole. She's the lead "singer." I would never have expected to really enjoy the music of the Pussycat Dolls, given that their music sounds like classic bubblegum factory pop, but it turns out I do. I liked their second song, "Stickwitu," which actually means "I want to stick with you," but they're too busy and globe-trotting to say all that. It was a pretty sweet ballad, and it had some random harmonica moments that for me really unified the song and elevated it above the Ugg-wearing dreck of your Ashlees and Lindsays and Allies and AJ's. And their new song, "Beep," is a very "My Humps"-like song with spare production, catchy lyrics, and a really awesome beat. The music comes in and out and it's unpredictable and it's fantastic.

I have never heard the Dolls' music on the radio, so I have only gotten to know them through their music videos. And that's where Nicole comes in. She's beautiful, she has a pleasant voice, she has a smile that lights up the room, and she's a good dancer. Let's be honest, the other Pussycat Dolls are window-dressing. I mean, there's the redhead, the short black chick, eight or ten blondes, and the one with the pegleg. And then there's sweet, radiant, smiling Nicole. For seeming to be pleasant, for heading up a group that I have no business enjoying, for dancing well, for misspelling "definitelty" as "definately" on her official Pussycat Dolls website blog - she is a woman we love.

In a cruel twist of fate you have also misspelled definitely on your blog.

Wow. My spiteful chickens are coming home to roost. I will leave that error up as a testament to my own hubris.
