15Better: Josie And The Pussycats
Although they may not have a huge role in the show or comics, the way that Josie and the Pussycats are portrayed in the show is a perfect fit. Instead of just simply being a girl band, the Pussycats are like Riverdale’s version of Destiny’s Child. They write their own
songs, they have fierce outfits and they are all about female empowerment.
The group includes Josie, Melody, and Valerie, which is the same as the source material. A major difference in the show is that all three members are African-American women, who embrace their skin color and worship Whitney Houston.
The girls constantly having the goal of becoming professional recording artists is a great message about following persistently following your dreams. They also strive to be good female role models, making Josie and the Pussycats something that Riverdale definitely does right.
