This morning, some shocking revelations on Twitter have been exposed by Kaya Jones, the former member of the hugely popular group The Pussycat Dolls, stating that all members were used and sexually abused. Underneath the sexy glitz and glamour with lead singer Nicole Scherzinger often taking the limelight, there were numerous times when members of the group were seemingly forced into sex with powerful executives in the entertainment industry.
Kaya Jones, 33, who quit the group in 2006, after joining as a teenager in 2003, fired off with a barrage of tweets on Saturday and Sunday, exposing The Pussycat Dolls as a glorified “prostitution ring”, where members were passed around by powerful executives for sexual gratification.
Meanwhile, the group founder, Robin Antin, has dispelled Kaya’s claims, calling them “disgusting, ridiculous lies” and that Jones is only looking for her “15 minutes of fame”. Hmmm… Really? Kaya had a lot more to say about it on Twitter.
It seems like The Pussycat Dolls “prostitution ring” could be another one of Hollywood’s worst kept secrets coming to rear its ugly head following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which may now cause a huge wave of women across various entertainment industries to speak out against their abusers, tormenters, and sexual predators. Do take note of her earlier tweet: “end up dead or no more career”. It’s a reality that people have faced when pitted against powerful industry giants. Stay safe, Kaya.
Robin Antin, a choreographer, reached a deal with Interscope/Geffen A&M Records in 2003, and thus, The Pussycat Dolls became one of the best selling girl groups of all time, with their hit “Don’t Cha”. They sold some 53 million records worldwide before they disbanded in 2010.
Kaya quit the group in 2005, after the sexual abuse and pressure became too much for her. Kaya Jones had stated in an interview with InfoWars.com: “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.”
So, who do you believe in? Do you believe Robin Antin who formed the group, or one of the former members of the group, speaking out about the girl group and what really went on? Either way, there seems to be a trend coming out of Hollywood, where success is largely weighed up against sex, sexual favours and prostitution, which isn’t good for the entertainment industry at all, is it?
As many have long thought, Hollywood is and can be a “sick, sick” place to work in, although the money earned can be seen as worthwhile. However, these Pussycat Dolls revelations are just the latest in a predicted onslaught of sexual abuse stories coming out of the woodworks after the Harvey Weinstein scandal, but this time, it’s rocking the music industry.
In 2014, another member of a girl group called G.R.L, named Simone Battle, which was also founded by Robin Antin, hanged herself in an apparent suicide after suffering from financial troubles.
Robin Antin said that Kaya had tainted Simone’s memory and called her comment “Nasty”, whilst another former Pussycat Doll member, Melody Thornton, wrote on Twitter, “‘It was a smart move! A Dick move but a smart one”, which lays weight to the claim that what Kaya Jones is saying, is all true.
So, what’s next for Hollywood and the music industry? Will this story catch on like wildfire and cause an uprising in the music industry? Will more former members from The Pussycat Dolls come forward? Will they even need to?
This comes days after Hollywood film director Woody Allen said he hoped the Harvey Weinstein scandal wouldn’t spark a snowball effect with more “witch hunts” coming to the forefront of media attention, which of course was met with an almighty backlash in his case. Now this fresh Hollywood sex scandal about The Pussycat Dolls being labelled as a glorified “prostitute ring” by one of its former members, may not come as a surprise to some, but it will definitely put greater scrutiny on Hollywood and the music industry, this time.
There seems to be increasing evidence that Hollywood and the music industry is run and powered by power structures involving sex, whilst not all the time, the problem seems to be rife, and this is now finally being exposed as truth in many cases.
You decide, but don’t expect this to be the last of this story, nor the last of fresh new stories of forced sex and sexual abuse in the name of money, power, fame and success in La La Land. As we said last week, Pandoras Box has well and truly been opened.
Will Nicole Scherzinger come out and comment on this story? We think not, as she was the lead and may not have experienced the same thing as the other girls. Or did she? Let’s wait and see.
However, it was always strange that nobody but Nicole really sang much, which makes you wonder, why the need for all the other girls? Apart from the dancing, of course… We await more news from this story in the near future.
Brainstain, over and out!
