GRL finds the only person basic enough to actually stan for them

Hey, everyone! It’s a new girl group!

Oh, just kidding — it’s the same old new formation of The Pussycat Dolls (younger, sexier, less Nicole Scherzinger-ier) that have been kicking around for a few months. Now, though, they have a new name — GRL — because (as sex mogul/slavedriver Robin Antin, a vision in high-waisted stonewashed denim, explains: “There’s no “I” in “TEAM.” Also because everything is awful and embarrassing. But mostly because of the team thing.)

At any rate, the girls made an appearance at Chateau Marmont last night and gave us a little taste of what to expect from their new life, and here’s what we know:

Item! GRL is comprised of Lauren Bennett (amazing because she was once a member of Antin’s short-lived pop globalization failed experiment Paradiso Girls), Natasha Slayton (amazing because her last name contains the word “Slay”), Paula Van Oppen (amazing because she is fierce, fearless, looks like Amber Rose), Simone Battle (amazing because she released a legitimately amusing single called “He Likes Boys” after appearing on The X Factor in 2011) and Emmalynn Estrada (amazing because she is the younger sister of mediocre Canadian pop chanteuse Elise Estrada).

Item! According to Robin Antin, a highly trustworthy human with tip-top integrity, they are working with Dr. Luke on their album.

Item! They can all sing and dance. Yup. All of them.

Item! Robin Antin’s pants.

That’s pretty much all you need to know. Watch them talk, twerk, dance and eventually bore you to tears up top.

Within just 2 days, Britney Spears's new single for The Smurfs 2 soundtrack has shot all the way up to #13 on iTunes worldwide.

- In just one day, "Ooh La La" cracked the Top 40 in Pop Radio
- Made #1 on iTunes in Vietnam, Venezuela, Peru, Argentina, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ukraine
- Top 10 in 20 countries on iTunes
- On track to crack the Top 30 on Mediabase (radio spins world wide)
- Over 2 million views on Vevo (not bad for an audio track, it doesn't even have a lyric video)

Remember, you can also stream the song for free via Spotify:

Your icons are mesmerizing, thank you for the service you provide

people like you are making this world a better place tbh
powerbottom 19th-Jun-2013 01:14 pm (UTC)
You're welcome~
zuluuluz 19th-Jun-2013 12:54 pm (UTC)
hayyyy OP! <3

pleasantly surprised that ooh lala is doing as well as it is (especially seeing as its a kids song)

good for brit

but im gonna need a follow up to break the ice sometime soon, anime-ney!
myreceiptsbox 19th-Jun-2013 01:47 pm (UTC)
hey gurl heyyyy

yes i'm glad this is getting some visibility, but i wouldn't want it to get too much exposure if u know what i mean. ^.^ i always love the big buildup to a new Britney single, it will be interesting if this song lasts all the way to August/September and then we segue into the lead single from album 8.

have you seen the Kill The Lights video? it was a promo fan contest, and the winning entry was basically an anime that was sort of about the BTI secret agent. You can see it on YouTube.
zuluuluz 20th-Jun-2013 02:06 am (UTC)
I agree! In just really excited for the new album - I hope it slays

Yes I did but I didn't like the animation style :( and the song wasn't one of my favourites tbh

I just want a badass Continuation of the toxic/break the ice storyline
britrawick 19th-Jun-2013 12:57 pm (UTC)
I do not like the song...but pretty happy its doing okay.didn't expect it to..

what happened to the other dolls who weren't named Nicole Scherzinger?the only one whose name i can recall is Melody
torontok 19th-Jun-2013 01:04 pm (UTC)
I need Snoop Dogg's "Buttons" verse to remeber their names.
Kimberley Wyatt was on celebrity magician show and now judges Got To Dance in the UK and Ashley Roberts judged on some ice dancing show over there.Carmit Bachar (ugly redhead) is in some new group. The others are all working on solo efforts.

britrawick 19th-Jun-2013 02:01 pm (UTC)
lmao...i just remembered that verse now...always liked Melody hence knowing her..

the rest were just passengers tbh
die2nitelive4ev 19th-Jun-2013 02:05 pm (UTC)
Kimberley Wyatt (one who could put her leg over her head) is a judge on a talent show in the UK, she also attempted a solo career which went shit.

the other blonde Ashley was on I'm a celeb and is now a C list celeb in the UK.

britney's selling power is impressive tbh. untalented yet still charting higher than everyone else

<3 i cant believe im actually excited for her next album
rctshack 19th-Jun-2013 06:12 pm (UTC)
She's talented. I'm really not understanding why everyone has to have a mariah carey voice to be talented? Britney has a good voice and knows the right way to market it... to me that's talent.
cerulean_glow 19th-Jun-2013 06:30 pm (UTC)
Her voice has deteriorated lately and I don't think she's actually the one marketing it, + I feel like her artistry is gone too

:) but yes yes, she's an established star and she does/did have the x-factor ~just a personal opinion ~~ i stan many (un)talented people too

i personally hate mariah's fluttery voice and would listen to britney's songs over her's any day, so yep, just a personal preference
andthenwevomit 19th-Jun-2013 01:02 pm (UTC)
the only reason I even downloaded and listened to it is because of Brit
lovetherisk 19th-Jun-2013 01:03 pm (UTC)
I don't like Ohh La La but I still purchased it a few times. And I'm excited about GRL, despite that ugly ass name. Robin is pretty decent with finding talent that can dance and sing. So, yeah. I've liked most everything she's put out with the exception of Girlicious.
msbombtastic 19th-Jun-2013 03:19 pm (UTC)
Like Me is ICONIC though

jk but it's catchy
littlehazaay 19th-Jun-2013 05:17 pm (UTC)
stupid shit >>>
shimmersea 19th-Jun-2013 01:05 pm (UTC)
I'll be perfectly honest, I'm here because my Queen was mentioned

Didn't read, can't even be bothered to care
a_wa 19th-Jun-2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
Hahaha. Same here.
xena_mademegay 19th-Jun-2013 01:11 pm (UTC)
More importantly, Ooh La La is SLAYING

it's currently at #57 in the only itunes chart that matters where it doesnt cost $.0005 US to buy, and it's steadily dropping.

maybe she should put a remix with will.i.am to help it sell

cerulean_glow 19th-Jun-2013 01:13 pm (UTC)
tbf, it's only a movie single
xena_mademegay 19th-Jun-2013 01:24 pm (UTC)
it got a huge radio deal.
her team is pushing for it to be a hit but it's flopping.

a taste of what's to come for album 8
myreceiptsbox 19th-Jun-2013 01:21 pm (UTC)
Worldwide >>>>>>>>> US

Maybe you should think about changing your name to xenophobia_mademegay
therealcharlie 19th-Jun-2013 01:16 pm (UTC)
The song is so...movie credit-sy now if that makes sense.
makahakat 19th-Jun-2013 01:18 pm (UTC)
makenoapology 19th-Jun-2013 01:21 pm (UTC)
how is that damned pink song still so popular
abbie 19th-Jun-2013 01:33 pm (UTC)
it's so bad. I hate P!nk and Kelly Clarkson's spiral into Adult Contemporary zzzzz
playa_pleathe 19th-Jun-2013 02:26 pm (UTC)
ugh same. like i don't mind them personally and they're both talented but their music is so grating and unoriginal.
luvthatdrtywata 19th-Jun-2013 01:34 pm (UTC)
it's soooooo bad. i mean all of her music is pretty bad but that one, dear god, i've tried to understand what people like about it but it's just so terrible. there is no melody!
myreceiptsbox 19th-Jun-2013 01:38 pm (UTC)
it's my least favorite song on her rather brilliant album. Her singles so far have been sf boring. Gurl, what are you doing? We should already have Slut Like You and Walk Of Shame exploding by now.
slinkhard i'm sorry i don't see / where all of this is coming from19th-Jun-2013 07:30 pm (UTC)
It's so bad it's almost funny. The lyrics...
bob80 20th-Jun-2013 03:07 am (UTC)
All of Pink's songs are now basically the same. I'm sick of it.
abbie 19th-Jun-2013 01:33 pm (UTC)
I'm still holding out for a decent mashup of Trouble and Get Together and it's been 5 years
guavapussy 19th-Jun-2013 02:31 pm (UTC)
i never knew i wanted this until right now
kpierceisfierce 19th-Jun-2013 01:24 pm (UTC)
I'm glad that ooh lala is doing well. Don'tcurr bout grl or w/e.
oh_ilikethat 19th-Jun-2013 01:26 pm (UTC)
Not even Brit can get me to stan for these walking Charlotte Russe catalogs.
