Cognitive Dissonance: Pussycats Dolls Edition

Pussycat Dolls Dolls

From The New York Times:

When Robin Antin, a Los Angeles choreographer, decided 11 years ago to assemble a burlesque-inspired nightclub revue, she called it the Pussycat Dolls as a nod to her vision of “making everyone look like a real, living doll.”
Interscope Records is taking her words literally.
The record company…has struck a deal with Hasbro, the toy maker, to create a line of fashion dolls modeled on its six members. The toy line—which aims to mimic the act’s playfully risqué style—is expected to be on sale by this year's holiday season. Hasbro executives estimate the dolls, intended for children aged 6 to 9, will be priced around $15, with the label receiving a royalty on sales. [Emphasis added.]

UPDATE: Hasbro realizes that stripper dolls for 6-year-olds are not such a great idea.
