Wyatt goes solo

LONDON: Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt is set to launch a solo career - she is working on her own album.

The singer recently complained her role in the girl group has been over-shadowed by lead vocalist Nicole Scherzinger, accusing music bosses of neglecting the rest of the band by pushing her to the front.

Scherzinger began recording her own solo album, Her Name Is Nicole, in 2006 but the record was put on hold so she could focus on her work with the Pussycat Dolls.

Wyatt is also determined to fulfil her solo ambitions but has vowed to retain her place in the girl band.

She says, "It's a dance pop record and I'm so excited by it. It's not the end of the band, though. It's the foundation for all solo projects. We are all independent girls, but will always be Pussycat Dolls as well."

Wyatt's plans don't end there - she is also plotting a career in film.

She adds, "I loved movies like Flashdance and Fame as a kid and I'm glad people are loving dance again. My dream is to star in my own dance movie."
