Christina Aguilera Shattered ‘Pussycat’ Wannabe’s Dreams

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When it comes to rejection, one wannabe Pussycat Doll has no one to blame but Christina Aguilera.

Dancer Mariela Arteaga was kicked off Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search For The Next Doll this past Tuesday (Apr. 3) and she believes it was a set up after producers told her to perform Aguilera’s hit “I Turn To You” in front of judges.

Says Arteaga: “I was like, ‘What?’ If I had stayed on another week would they have wanted me to tackle Pavarotti next?”

Although Arteaga’s pipes were no match for the Aguilera song, she admits she’s come to terms with the fact that she just wasn’t meant to strut her stuff as a Pussycat Doll.

Arteaga continues to dance, and has started taking singing lessons in hopes of being a backup dancer for Aguilera, Whitney Houston or Tina Turner.

That is, if her solo career doesn’t pan out.
