Hilson: 'Scherzinger Was Forced To Return To Dolls'

Singer-songwriter KERI HILSON has accused music industry bosses of forcing NICOLE SCHERZINGER to abandon her solo career and return to the PUSSYCAT DOLLS.
The band took a short hiatus following the success of their 2005 album PCD and Scherzinger began work on her own record, titled Her Name Is Nicole.
But the album was never released, and several of the tracks written for the project ended up being recorded for the latest Pussycat Dolls album, Doll Domination.
Scherzinger subsequently claimed it was her own decision to quit the project and focus on the band, but Hilson - who wrote a track for the solo album - insists industry bosses forced the singer back to the girl group.
She says, "I wrote Alienated, one of the songs on my album, for Nicole's solo project. It was a good album but she decided to go back to the Dolls instead of releasing it, well she was kinda forced to I think.
"It was a good situation for me as I fell in love with that song, so I got to keep it."
Rumours the Pussycat Dolls are heading for a full time split erupted earlier this year (09) after their last two singles were released under the name The Pussycat Dolls featuring Nicole Scherzinger.
Reports of a rift were further fuelled by allegations that band member Melody Thornton publicly criticised Scherzinger onstage at a gig in Phoenix, Arizona earlier In April (09).
