Nicole Scherzinger isn't worried that new girlband G.R.L. will steal The Pussycat Doll's pop crown.
The American singer was one fifth of the mega group, who were well known for showing off their dancing skills as well as their singing abilities.
While Nicole now enjoys solo success as well as a burgeoning TV career, she's not yet ready to let anyone steal the Pussycat Doll's vibe.
“Nobody could ever replace the Pussycat Dolls and G.R.L. were never ever going to be the new PCD," Nicole revealed to British newspaper Daily Star.
“They are very pop. [Producer/songwriter] Dr. Luke is involved and they are five different gorgeous girls doing their own thing."
While 36-year-old Nicole doesn't think her former band has anything to worry about in regards to G.R.L., she was full of praise for the emerging stars.
The band is made up of Simone Battle, Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton and Paula van Oppen, and was formed by Robin Antin, the brains behind The Pussycat Dolls.
“They’re adorable but the Dolls set-up was very different. It was a unique time and nothing else had ever come out like that before.”
"The Dolls hold a special place in my heart,” she added “Nobody can touch us. Hopefully we’ll get back together.”
Nicole, as well as former bandmates Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt, has enjoyed massive success on British TV, but she's now focusing on her music once again.
The star is working on her second studio album, and has recently released new track Your Love but reveals a close pal has suggested she mix up her style slightly.
“Prince is a good friend of mine and he’s always wanted me to sing more soul rock,” she divulged.
