Major dramaz at the Scherzinger house, guys! Nicole Scherzinger‘s mom is fired up that her daughter wears so many skimpy outfits, especially that one where you could see Nicole’s bra and — wait, why are you looking at me like that?
Oh. Oh! This “Nicole Scherzinger” name isn’t ringing any bells is it? Well, you might know her by her professional name, The One Who Always Stood in Front and “Sang” (or Something) in the Pussycat Dolls.
This was back when the Pussycat Dolls were a musical, uh, thing that made some music and was also a burlesque act? I think? I don’t know. I was always fuzzy on the details, too. Anyway, after her considerable success with both the Pussycat Dolls and as a solo act, Scherzinger has gone about putting in her required time on reality TV competition shows (X-Factor).
Scherzinger recently told The Sun that her religious mother still scolds her for wearing skimpy outfits (or no outfits at all) in pictures and music videos. She added that her mother Googles her to come up with specific examples to chastise her for, which is a little obsessive, but okay.
Mama drama aside, Scherzinger has also pissed *me* right the hell off by reviving the Clairol Herbal Essences orgasms-on-a-plane commercial. I’m referring to this mid 90s masterpiece:
This commercial always bothered me, because why and how would anyone even physically wash (and dry and style) their hair in a tiny airplane bathroom? And why would the bathroom have an intercom? But, yes, I know, I’m way overthinking the “plot” of a shampoo commercial and I should just let the wholesome young woman have her herbal orgasm and shut up.
But then Clairol had to go and update the commercial with Scherzinger in the starring role:
There are obviously still the same logistical matters here that you know are bothering me. But would anyone, even a hottie like Scherzinger, be allowed to just let one rip without people getting freaked out that it was some kind of terrorist plot? THIS IS A POST-9/11 WORLD, CLAIROL!
