Kaya Jones was a star in the girl band the Pussycat Dolls. I really liked some of their music. The band changed out girls an awful lot, so it was hard to keep track. Kaya is now coming forward and telling the world that the band was basically a prostitution ring. Whoa. I tend to believe her because she knows how really bad this sounds and looks. Another dark side to Hollywood and entertainment is being shone a light on here. The “den mother from hell” is assumed to be the founder and choreographer for the group, Robin Antin.
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal that is ripping Hollywood wide open, Kaya is flatly stating all of these girls were abused and passed around like candy. She is saying that the members were forced into sex with entertainment executives. Kaya is now 33. She joined the band in 2003 and left the group in 2006 and made these revelations via Twitter over the weekend. Antin was quick to call them lies and accuse Jones of looking for her fifteen minutes of fame. I highly doubt she is lying here. It definitely has the ring of truth to it.
“My truth. I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring. Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $,” Jones wrote. “How bad was it? people ask – bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, bandmates & a 13 million dollar record deal. We knew we were going to #1,” she stated. Antin shot back even further claiming that Jones had never been a real member of the group. She’d merely been one of many trial members who did not pan out. I also don’t believe that statement. There’s more than enough evidence to show that Jones was a big part of the band at one time.
Think about it… do you really believe this DIDN’T happen? Kaya says she was deeply affected by the Mandalay Bay Massacre in Las Vegas and is coming forward because of that. She was at the concert when people were slaughtered there. She was deeply shaken by what happened there and has been speaking out ever since in support of the National Anthem and gun rights.
The Pussycat Dolls are one of the best-selling girl groups of all times, selling 53 million records worldwide before their breakup in 2010.
The band was assembled by choreographer Robin Antin under a deal with Interscope Geffen A&M Records.
“Executives, and managers, and agents and other artists that are on the label, if you don’t want to sleep with an executive they’ll pass you to that. Or sometimes they’ll continue to pass the girl, so she’s just passed around,” Jones said. “To be apart of the team you must be a team player. Meaning sleep with whoever they say. If you dont they have nothing on you to leverage,” Jones tweeted. “Yes I said leverage. Meaning after they turn you out or get you hooked on drugs they use it against you. Correct. Victimizing the victim again,” she continued. Anyone with any knowledge of Hollywood and the entertainment industry definitely sees how this has validity. It happens all the freaking time.
Jones’ tweets and accusations come just days after a rumored reunion tour for the Pussycat Dolls surfaced. She was attacked by several members of the group over her statements. Most of the band stayed mum on it. Jones said that she had tried speaking up to the entertainment press in the past, but had been brushed aside by journalists in the thrall of Hollywood and music industry titans. I believe Kaya… she has no reason to lie here. It gains her nothing. And she will be far from the last to uncover sordid dealings like this. The Hollywood Sex Trials have just begun.
