WATCH: Former Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones’ Boyfriend Has a Boyfriend, And That’s Just Fine With Her

The beautiful and talented singer Kaya Jones–formerly of the powerhouse Pussycat Dolls–is now making it big on her own. And when she’s not busy building her new, innovative record label that allows artists to own themselves (unlike her days with the Dolls), she’s singing about her boyfriend who has a boyfriend. And that’s okay with her.

Kaya’s boyfriend isn’t really gay, but in her song and video for her recent Boyfriend track, she sings about acceptance. So, he falls for someone else and that someone else happens to be of the same-sex? Get over it. Love is love. Check out the steamy video…

“At 15 or 16, I watched thepeople close to me…their battles,” she explains, “I knew it wasn’t a choice.” Bullied herself as a kid because of her unique combination Jamaican and Native American heritage, she knew she had to become a champion for those who were perceived as different.

And, specifically, about the Boyfriend video, she points out: “How is it that we’re not okay with watching two guys together, but the moment that you think I’m going to be with a woman, you’re okay with it? We’re attracted to many different things. That’s the message–it’s ok.”

We hosted Kaya this week for the Queerty/GayCities sponsored Swish Edition comedy & interview talk show. We had so much fun that we ended up talking for over 40-minutes. A shorter version is a part of this week’s show (starting at the 40:32 mark), but if you’d like to hear the whole unedited interview, it’s available as a Swish Bonus episode.
