Aubrey O’Day has kept a low profile for over a year. However, the Danity Kane darling is back with a new single and a story to tell.
Dropping by the Tamron Hall Show, the singer/reality star plugged her freshly released track ‘Couple Goals’ – which she’s paired with a nude video (available via OnlyFans).
Before unlocking the racy offering (which lyrically reflects on her toxic relationship with ‘Jersey Shore’ star Pauly D), O’Day says she had to jet to Bali to deal with an array of issues – ranging from self-love, image, and addition to prescription drug Ambien.
The 38-year-old also seized the moment to hit back at a TikTok star who went viral revealing that the performer had Photoshopped herself into vacation pictures. Rather than deny the practice, O’Day defended it.
Head below to see what she had to say…
Aubrey on rumors that she is faking her luxurious life:
“I am at all of these locations. I look at my Instagram as I’m an artist. I look at my life and pictures as like art that I want to create for the world. You don’t see me on there with my regular friends, my dogs and my home. I don’t belong to the people. I don’t belong to others. My personal life is mine. And that’s the only way that I haven’t gone off the deep end or turned into something that I’m not. So when you see things like this, if you guys can agree, I’m making art. I’ve been to all these places and after these photos, I do post the videos of how it looked. But in order to get to this place, you have to scale a mountain for about two hours. I don’t have a caboodle of makeup and my wigs.”
Aubrey opens up about her addiction to prescription pills:
“My entire time in Bali, just to be completely honest, was about getting off of prescription medications that were given to me at 17 years old because this industry promoted me to be my most aspirational self and when I wasn’t able to be that, doctors were giving me medications and telling me ‘take this and take this and then you’ll be aspirational.’ I was taking about, if I’m going to be completely honest, 16 pills a day.
[To beat it] I was able to let go of the chip on my shoulder that was making it impossible for me to be happy in this world, living.”
Aubrey discusses her new nude music video:
“Well, for numerous reasons [I did the nude music video]. One, I was scared to and when the idea was first proposed that I needed a body double because my body wasn’t good enough. No, [it wasn’t forced upon me] I live in my ideas but as I was expressing different ideas of how I could shoot this, people were really interested in that idea [the nude shoot]. And as they would discuss it with me, I was saying, ‘Oh, I need a body double though. My body’s not good enough. It doesn’t look like those other girls. I’m not sexy anymore. I’m older.’… I found so much freedom and being able to be naked in the sense that my body has been on the chopping block since I was 17. When I got to Bali and I left my wig, my makeup and all my good looking clothes at home, I looked in the mirror for my first couple months and I looked and said, ‘I am so ugly.’ I saw every mark on my body. They released these photos of me where I was an abnormal size that were not accurate. But as I saw that, everybody gained weight during COVID by the way. It’s reclaiming myself.”
With that, what are…
