Pop Conspiracy: Pussycat Dolls Vs. Girls Aloud

The Pussycat Dolls' second single "Whatcha Think About That" off their forthcoming Doll Domination album has hit the airwaves. (I should know, I heard it last week while driving to pick up Chinese takeout.)

After it was added to iTunes on Tuesday, I couldn't help noticing the resemblance to the single cover for Girls Aloud's "Sexy! No No No..."

Of course, the main difference being that PCD look like two-dollar hookers, while Girls Aloud probably charge 20 and make you wear a condom.

Meanwhile, "Whatcha Think About That" isn't half bad, and actually kind of makes up for the banal atrocity that is "When I Grow Up." It also contains a rap from Missy Elliott, with the line: "Up in that club it's just me and my girls/Play like Katy Perry, kissing on girls."

Stay classy, Missy!

SIDE NOTE: To read grown men poetically masturbating over Girls Aloud's new single "The Promise"—which in D'luv's book doesn't hold a candle to last year's "Call The Shots—go here (Adem With An E) and here (XO's Middle Eight).
