The Blogoshere lit up last week with the release of our September issue featuring pop star Aubrey O'Day. O'Day, the foxy blonde with striking blue eyes who put out two albums with Danity Kane (the sexy girl group created by Sean "Diddy" Combs on MTV's Making the Band) has been linked to numerous women in the tabloids (porn queen Jenna Jameson and heiress Lydia Hearst, to name two). She's graced the cover of Playboy, made out with some famous female celebs and has a new reality show in the works. She's also headlining Peepshow in Las Vegas. O'Day, who was eager to set the record straight (er, sort of) about what went down at MTV, "marrying" Daniela Sea, her new reality series, and-most importantly-the rumors about her love life.
Soon sites from OK! to Perez Hilton were reporting on this brazen ladies comments, the top gossip included her side of getting fired by Sean (Diddy) Combs, "What it really was about was power and control. I wasn't going to let somebody take mine. He was never going to dictate who I am as a person. I think he's gotten good at doing that with the women that are around him," says O'Day. Why she's a threat, "I'm one of the most underestimated people in the industry, people don't expect much from me. They expect me to be a hot mess, they expect me to say all the wrong things and wear the wrong outfits. I think it's really easy to move through the industry as a woman when you're underestimated. But most the buzz focused on her celebrity crush Samantha Ronson, "She's so hot. Every time I see her I want to go over and talk to her, but it's like she's going to be like 'You're that girl that tries to say you're gay everywhere' and I'm like 'No, I promise-get to know me. We'd be perfect together.' " And for Ronson's currently lady Lindsay Lohan, O'Day says, "Their relationship has been her job for the past year."
So what do you think? Is this scandal worthy?
