Ex-Pussycat Dolls Member Calls Out Group as a “Prostitution Ring”

Kaya Jones made some waves on Twitter late last week.

Who is Kaya Jones, you may be wondering?

She’s a former member of the all-girls singing group The Pussycat Dolls… although she’s here to to take issue with saying this group really had anything to do with “singing”

Or at least with the concept of making any kind of meaningful art.

“My truth. I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring,” Jones Tweeted, adding:

“Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $ .”

To be clear, Jones is NOT saying she and her fellow artists charged money to have sexual intercourse with anyone and that her managers acted as actual pimps.

Not in the traditional sense of the term prostitution, that is.

But no one cared about her well-being and she was only asked to sing material others put in front of her, while executives raked in the cash she helped earn.

“How bad was it? People ask – bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, my bandmates & a 13 million dollar record deal,” Jones Tweeted.

“We knew we were going to be #1.”

The Pussycat Dolls were founded by choreographer Robin Antin in 1995.

Among their many rotating members over the years, the most famous is likely Nicole Scherzinger.

You may remember the group for such hits as “Don’t Cha”, “Buttons” and “Stickwitu.”

They broke up in 2009, but Billboard ranked the Pussycat Dolls as the 80th most successful musical act of the 2000s, as they spawned merchandise opportunities, spin-off girl groups and reality programs.

Without mentioning Antin by name, Jones called out the “den mother” of the group during her social media diatribe, writing:

“I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide? Tell the public how you mentally broke us.”

This is almost certainly a reference to G.R.L. singer Simone Battle, who killed herself in September of 2014.

Simone Battle took her own life in 2014. May she rest in peace.

“To be a part of the team you must be a team player,” continued Jones of what she and other members were told.

“Meaning sleep with whoever they say. If you don’t they have nothing on you to leverage…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.”

The singer went on to compare herself to a member the armed forces.

“That’s why I have so much respect for our military. I’ve been through [war]. But my scars you can’t see. At least real war is honest.

“Why don’t we report it? Because we were all abused! I personally have been warned if I tell I will…you know end up dead or no more career.”

It’s unclear why Jones has spoken out about these alleged issues now, but it’s safe to assume she is responding to the controversy surrounding Harvey Weinstein and all the women he harassed.

However, Asia Nitollano, an ex-member of the Pussycat Dolls, who was briefly in the group in 2007, jumped on Twitter and strongly denied everything Jones claimed in her rant.

“Who is Kaya Jones? Lol She was not apart of The Pussycat Dolls the recording group so I do not know her.

“If she was in the Vegas show then I know nothing about that nor have I ever heard such a thing.

“But judging from google she looks like she just wants her 15min of fame. (Side note… it says she’s a Trump supporter… but yet she’s Canadian, which means her vote doesn’t count!!!! )

“Same with this comment about The Pussycat Dolls; she wasn’t in the group so her opinion doesn’t count!!!!””

Kate Middleton: Slammed as “Disgusting” By Member of Parliament!

It’s only Tuesday, but it’s already been one hell of a painful week on this side of the pond.

Fortunately, we can now take some comfort in the fact that we’re not the only civilized nation that elects leaders who go out of their way to spew childish insults at one another.

We kid. There’s really nothing fortunate about this situation; we’re just looking for any reason to be positive this week.

Anyway, as you may already know, the entire world is in a constant state of near-financial panic these days because we live in the hellscape known as 2017.

As a result, it’s a bad time for public figures to indulge in ostentatious displays of wealth.

(Well, except for in America, where we’ve been known to elect leaders who have 100 percent had sex with a high-end escort covered in gold paint, like in that Bond movie. We’re not naming names, but … ya know.)

Of course, the rules are always different for the members of the Royal Family, who have spent the past several been ballin’ so hard motherf–kers want to abolish the archaic institution.

The Royals often draw comparisons to the Kardashians and other celebrities who enjoy what many believe are unearned spots high atop the hog, while the rest of us are down here suckling on pig teat.

One big difference, of course, is that the Royals are taxpayer funded, while the Kards amassed their fortune the old-fashioned way – peddling sex tapes and ludicrously overpriced lipstick.

We say all of this merely to point out that there are legitimate arguments behind the idea that royalty should be done away with in the UK, or at least that those who enjoy noble titles should have their spending severely curbed.

But Member of Parliament Emma Coad didn’t make one of those legitimate arguments.

No, she just called a pregnant woman disgusting.

Coad is a longtime Royal-hater, who was previously best-known for questioning Prince Harry’s fitness to serve in the military, despite the fact that his commanding officers assured her that he was as well-trained as anyone else.

Now, she’s decided to further guarantee that she’ll eventually be pelted with rotten produce by slamming Kate Middleton as “disgusting.”

The insult came during a screed in which Coad lambasted the Duchess for spending 170 pounds (approximately $ 225) on a dress.

“That’s a food bill for a family of four. That’s absolutely outrageous,”

First of all, what sort of Marshall’s-ass clothing is this woman buying that she’s disgusted by a $ 225 dress?

Secondly, is she not aware that Kate is pregnant with her third child, and said to be experiencing a number of painful complications.

Publicly denigrating a woman in such a condition would be as insensitive as blaming hurricane victims for their own horrific plight after you refused to provide aid their entitled to.

For shame, people of England.

Duggar Family: Did One Member Just Come Out in Favor of LGBT Rights?!

Being in the Duggar fertility cult means following a host of deeply fundamentalist beliefs espoused by Jim Bob Duggar, setting men back by decades and women back by a couple of centuries at least.

But the best-laid plans of domineering patriarchs don’t always work out, and it seems almost inevitable that some of the Duggars will break free of their family’s oppression and form their own ideas.

Well one members of the Duggar family is shocking fans — and appears to be warming to the idea of LGBT rights.

Derick Dillard isn’t a Duggar in name or by birth, but he’s undeniably part of the Duggar clan.

As far as that group goes, Derick can come across as almost likable — despite having cut his hair — though his likability may just come from being compared to the likes of Josh Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar.

It’s easy for anyone to look good in that context, you know? But he seems to be an okay guy.

Derick and Jill have been dedicated to their missionary work — which was controversial even among people who think that missionary work is an acceptable thing to do.

Derick and Jill also dedicated parents and generally part of a very conservative subculture.

Which is why this apparent deviatin on Derick’s part sent shockwaves through fans of Counting On.

Richard Grenell, a long-serving spokesman for the United States at the UN, tweeted.

“No one should be fired for being gay. And no one should be fired for being a Christian. We should be able to work through these issues.”

He’s absolutely right, of course.

Don’t get us wrong, because Grenell tweets a lot of absolute nonsense (honestly he tweeted praise about Trump making a “fast and bold move” on foreign policy and it’s like reading something from a parallel universe where Trump isn’t an evil living trashcan fire).

But “No one should be fired for being gay. And no one should be fired for being a Christian,” is a pair of statements with which most people should be able to agree.

Of course, one of those is a real thing that happens all of the time with zero legal reprocussions in many states. The other is so rare that it’s weird that he’d bring it up.

(It’s kind of like hearing a news report about a series of car thefts and tweeting: “Those monsters shouldn’t steal people’s cars! Also, graverobbing is awful.” Maybe he was just trying to appeal to his followers who might hesitate about his first sentence)

One person who liked that tweet, which acknowledged gay rights (admittedly just about the bare minimum in terms of anti-discrimination, but still), was Derick Dillard.

To say that some people were surprised was an understatement.

While it’s not unusual for Ben Seewald to clash with Jim Bob Duggar over theology, you don’t usually think of Derick as being a “radical” by Duggar standards.

And yes, for these folks, acknowledging even basic human rights for LGBT folks is considered radical.

So “liking” that tweet might be a big deal.

(And yes, likes and favorites are publicly visible on almost every social media platform)

Some fans still don’t think that Derick is necessarily deviating from fundamentalist beliefs or supporting LGBT rights.

There were three sentences in that tweet, and Derick may have been focusing on the second.

“And no one should be fired for being a Christian.”

That’s not exactly an epidemic, and anti-discrimination laws tend to include religion already, but we have to remember that for some conservative Christians and especially for fundamentalists, there’s an emphasis on “persecution” and the need to believe that they’re oppressed.

(For the record, there are absolutely places where Christians are oppressed, but in the US they are 70% of the population and hold majorities in every branch of government at every level, and their God is literally mentioned in the Pledge of Allegiance)

So there’s a chance that Derick was not only glossing over the first sentence, but expressing his religiously conservative beliefs.

Still, plenty of conservatives — including Richard Grenell, the man who wrote that tweet — are warming to the idea that gay people exist and might even be treated like people.

Derick Dillard is relatively young and has traveled beyond the isolation of Arkansas.

It’s probably easy for the LGBT community to seem frightening to people who don’t watch television or ever meet people who don’t share their exact same views.

Maybe Derick has seen enough of the world to know better.

One way or the other, it would be nice to see him address the subject of that tweet.
