"They're the ones that dictate the future of music."And the music industry needs them, if only because the tweens are largely believed to still purchase CDs.
If junior high kids weren't entirely responsible for what Nielsen Sound Scan estimates as 2.8 million copies sold of "PCD," the debut album from the Pussycat Dolls that contained the (still) inescapable single "Don't Cha," Antin knows they accounted for a sizable percentage."If you go to a Pussycat Dolls concert, it's all these little girls, and they all have on their hoodies," Antin said recently in the family room of her modest one-story West Hollywood home.

"The Slumber Party Girls was the universe slapping us down hard and saying, 'No,' " Fair said. Whoops.""Girlicious," the show and the group, face a crowded market.
Broadway and workout videos are not yet realities, but the lingerie line has officially launched, and Antin said she's close to opening up a Pussycat Dolls Lounge in Los Angeles (the Las Vegas club opened in 2005).
