Aubrey O’Day Spreads the Love on Turkey Day at NYC Rescue Mission

Ex-Danity Kane member Aubrey O’ Day spent some time on Turkey Day to help out at New York City’s Rescue Mission. Founded in 1872, the Rescue Mission gives spiritual hope, food, clothing and shelter to anyone who walks through their doors. Yesterday, food was on the minds of most of those people. Aubrey didn’t dish out the mac and cheese..

It marked a Yin and Yang week for Aubrey, on Monday she was spotted at a photoshoot, which if the rumors are correct, will be in the pages of Playboy in the coming months. The folks at Playboy are doing the ‘can’t confirm or deny’ thing.. that means she did and this goose made sure she promises to come back with the advance issue.

something i think is so interesting and respectable about Aubrey is that unlike most artists out today, she chooses her path rather than having the industry choose it for her. Her choices may be a bit brash, but the one thing that she’s always done was let everyone know who she is and that she’s not going to change who she is for anyone. I know she gets a lot of hate on here, and I’ll probably get some for supporting her, but you gotta hand it to her, she’s a trailblazer. It’s funny how we applaud legends for using their sexuality as a tool, but shun newcomers for doing the same thing. Aubrey’s one of the girls that I doubt you’ll see with a sextape or off in the gutter like Amy Winehouse. Aubrey’s got her head on straight. It may hurt her chances in the industry but it’ll get her closer to her destiny as a woman.

Something that Aubrey and a lot of other people need to understand is you have to become a star before you can act and be treated like a star. Her not changing for anyone may be the death of her career. She needs to straighten up and take guidance from others and then IF she becomes a Beyonce or someone of that stature she can do as she pleases.

reece, i agree with you partially on that concept. but honestly that’s the principle that this industry fabricated simply to control the artists they put their money into. and i don’t blame them. but what i don’t like is that they will sign someone for their outspokenness or their brash personality and the moment the artist does something IN CHARACTER that the label doesn’t like, they’re ready to cut funds, drop them from the label, or blackball them. And it’s very unfair to the artist because they’re simply being the person the label fell in love with in the beginning. it’s a dirty and unfair game on all sides.

and trust me, i speak from experience, so it’s not just rhetoric to me.

a-nat, a lot of what you say is very true. Unfortunately the majority of the time you have to kiss ass to become bigtime. In the long run I think it is clearly worth it. I agree with you that they sign singers and rap artist treat them like crap, ESPECIALLY DIDDY! But think about it, what would any of those girls be doing if they hadn’t been signed by him? Sometimes you have to give in the beginning before you get a lot more in the end. I don’t know if you are a rapper or singer but I hope you get back in it and become famous.

With Aubrey and D. Woods out, and Shannon quitting, Danity Kane is down to two members. It’s interesting that Diddy is coming off looking like an idiot here. Meanwhile Aubrey is working on her solo album, she just finished a successful Broadway run, she’s doing movies, she already has the name recognition. If you look at the final episode of last years MTB, Aubrey didn’t even look surprised when Diddy dropped her——-she was more “whatever”. Either she had advance warning, or she was relieved it was over so she could do the things she wanted to do. Now look at the Bad Boy roster. The only people that I recognize are the people from the tv show: DK, Day 26, Donnie Klang. Diddie doesn’t promote the artists on his label, he didn’t even promote DK’s albums. They both sold platinum on sheer talent——-it wasn’t the show that did it. Otherwise Donnie Klang’s sales numbers wouldn’t be so pathetic.

The way Diddy, that’s his name this week, treats people he needs to come off looking like an ass. Unfortunately he will recover but anyone who gets in because of him needs to leave him the first chance they get. He is for self and clearly shows it. Use him just like he uses them for the shows and as soon as you get a chance to sign with someone else they should do so. He IS an ass that thinks he is a god. Fuck Diddy!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah, Aubrey still needs to make better decisions for her self in the future. Getting away from Diddy was a good one but there are a lot more decisions that she needs to make.

I’m not an Aubrey fan but maybe getting away from Diddy was a good thing.  But I’m with BTW, she still needs to make better decisions in the future. I hope she doesn’t get beside herself again.  Hopefully she’ll be able to humble herslef this time around.

At first, I was SHOCKED. But then being from the old school, I thought this is how things go at Bad Boy just as 112, the Lox, Lil Cease, Mary J., Lil Kim. I remember an interview with Jay-Z and Damon Dash that talked about when they were on tour with Puffy, Jay-Z had to change his clothes in the bathroom and the per diem that got sucked so Damon pulled Jay-Z from the tour. I do think Aubrey acted like a star but I also think that she knew Puffy was full of shit and that she had to promote herself because he never would. Puffy alluded to a lot of the separation in the group and I thought what a dumb ass he is. The only history that this group had was the reality show and being chosen. They had no chemistry because it was all put together by him. I do think this will affect his brand. How do you dismantle the only other group besides the Pussycat Dolls that are out right now? Just as in his personal life he doesn’t stick with anyone or anything too long. Also, can we please add Cassie to the list of his artists. What is going on with her?!

She sure has toned down all that makeup and that’s a good thing….sucks to go from MAC to Wet & Wild!!! Sorry, you shoula shut your damn mouth!!!

Wtf is wrong with her face? She looks plastic. Collagen, Bloated face and crazy eyes? Damn. She used to be so beautiful.

12 Roman Mon, Dec 15, 2008 - 12:32 am

Unfortunately I agree with Ms. Ladybug, Aubrey should have gotten more fame and credibility before she opened her mouth. This is a lesson to all up and comers, especially if you are under that ass Diddy, shut up until your time comes.

I like Aubrey she is very independent and speaks her mind and tries to block out the negative talk. I she has changed from the time she first got into Making the Band and Making the band 3. I feel that the fame has kind of got to her. I mean i think she took her opportunity for granted like she would of had that chance any day. I would be thankful if i was her to be able to work with P.Diddy and the rest of the girls. Also she had no business butting in about Dawn because she went out and did HairSpray which i loved. I wish the best of luck to her and a lot of success but i hope she doesn’t lose herself along the way. Enough said
