Biography

As a teenager Jones was signed to a development deal by R. Kelly in 1999, and was signed as a punk rock artist to Capital Records in 2001. It was during her punk phase that she added "Jones" to her artist name, after it was suggested by Sex Pistol guitarist Steve Jones.[4] No music was officially released from either of these projects. In 2003 Jones attended an open audition to join the new Pussycat Dolls line-up, joining at the same time as Nicole Sherzinger and Melody Thornton. While with the group, she performed at the MTV Asia Award’s, MTV’s Rock the Vote, VH1’s Divas Live, and VH1’s Fashion Rocks. Her vocals appear on the Pussycat Dolls recordings "We Went as Far as We Felt Like Going" and "Sway" on the album PCD, and she appears in the "Sway" music video. In 2004 Jones appeared in the music video "How Come" by D12 and Eminem, [5] and sang back up vocals for Mick Jagger on the Golden Globe winning song "Old Habits Die Hard" (also featuring Katy Perry) from the movie Alfie.
