Jessica Sutta | A Pussycat Doll coming home to Miami Beach PRIDE!
by Armando Diaz
Ever since she emerged on to the world’s pop scene in
2003 with the Pussycat Dolls, Jessica Sutta was singled
out, as the sweet and sexy glamour girl. The thing is though,
she is just so much more than that. Scanning the world of
music with a sharp sense of creativity, she prepared herself
for an inevitable solo career. A goal she’s been working
towards all her life. Among the South Florida native’s
previous incarnations are as a dance student at the Miami
City Ballet, a spot on the cheerleading squad for the Miami
Heat of which she became captain in 2001. She’s had
acting roles in films such as Bad Boys II and From Justin To
Kelly as well as the soap opera Ocean Ave. She’s
appeared as a featured artist on Paul Van Dyk’s “Be With
You” and Erick Morillo’s “Pin Up Girl”. She performed the
latter with Oxley and Murillo at the Ultra Music Festival.

There's a particularly favorite track of yours on the album called "Matador", it's pretty
intense... How does that track stand out for you personally?
It talks about a relationship that I was in.. Basically asking the man to stop tearing my heart out

stronger.. That's for sure.
With all this transition do you ever miss performing with the Pussycat Dolls? Do you get to
see the other members much?
