She is probably best known to audiences as a member of the Pussycat Dolls. Jessica Sutta grew up in Cutler Bay, Florida and is a mix of Irish, Russian, Polish and Japanese ancestry. She has two older brothers.
By the time she was three, she was taking dance classes and was a child model. At the New World School of the Arts, Jessica studied dance, but after a knee injury, she switched to theater studies. In 1999, Jessica Sutta joined the Miami Heat cheerleading squad, becoming its captain in 2001.
But Jessica Suttas career took off when she moved to Los Angeles for a dance audition for a public service announcement. A choreographer saw her and cast Jessica in the Pussycat Dolls. Jessica told cherrygrrl.com, I booked the [PSA job] and Robin Antin was the choreographer. We hit it off almost immediately and she basically told me to cut my bangs and join the group a week later. My mom called me Pussycat my whole life, so in my opinion, it was fate.
Jessica left the group in 2010 to embark on a solo career. She knew it was time to step away from the group when I broke my rib on tour. It felt like it cracked open so much I was holding back for so many years. My artist wanted to come out and play. It was one of the hardest decisions but looking back Im so grateful for everything I experienced with Pussycat Dolls (voices.yahoo.com). She said of her bandmates, They were totally supportive. No claws out!
Her debut single Show Me reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance charts. Her solo album Sutta Pop is set for release in 2013.
Aside from singing, Jessica Sutta has appeared in music videos and was cast in Ocean Ave. Other appearances include roles in From Justin to Kelly, Bay Boys II and the game show Identity. She also appeared in ads for Axe body spray. She has been in FHMs Sexiest list. Jessica Sutta said, I love to act and I would love to do movies one day. Next goal.
Jessica has also learned a lot of lessons in the entertainment industry, too many to count. Ive been in the business for more than 16 years. Ive learned that every hard lesson happens for a reason. Reasons you sometimes dont understand till years down the line. Its made me grateful and present. Ultimately, I think thats what matters.
