The feud between Nicole Scherzinger and her fellow Pussycat Dolls has gone public. Doll Melody Thornton gave a pointed shoutout at Friday’s show in her hometown, Phoenix—“Thank you for supporting me, even though I’m not featured, you know what I’m saying?….Don’t let anyone stomp you down, ever!” Gee, think she’s talking about the “Pussycat Dolls feat. Nicole Scherzinger” credit on their last two singles?
According, to the Chicago Sun-Times, headliner Britney Spears thought the on-stage tension following Melody’s outburst had a “downer effect” on the rest of the show, inspiring Spears to lecture them that “you can hate each other off-stage…but make it work on stage.” When you need to advice from Britney Spears, something is wrong.

Hometown or not, the audience sure doesn’t sound like they have any animosity towards Nicole. If the others can’t get over their jealousy, they might be the ones leaving.
