Aubrey O'Day: The Naked Truth

We all know that curvaceous singer Aubrey O'Day got the boot from her all girl group Danity Kane on the Part 1 of the season finale of Making the Band 4…. but did her Playboy shoot have something to do with it?

“You’ve seen the show, that’s what happened. I got fired,” Aubrey told while attending the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. “Playboy came afterward. It had nothing to do with why I got fired.”

The “truth” according to P. Diddy (who produced Making the Band) was that Aubrey’s fame was to blame. "I just want to work with the young lady that I signed, not the person that fame has made her," he said via satellite on that Tuesday show.

It seems odd that an infamous Hollywood mogul, such as Diddy, chose to point a dismissive finger rather than extend a helping hand… regardless, Aubrey is moving on without clinging to the hope of a DK reunion.

“I think everything happens in life for a reason. I don’t really have a choice, I was fired and now I just have to move forward and try to learn from that experience,” Aubrey told

Since October, Aubrey has been in the studio working on a possible solo album. She says “
I am getting things off my chest, playing with different styles of music. I am staying true to R&B roots but I am incorporating a little bit of rock in to it now.”

Rocking with her music, rolling with the punches, and posing on the cover of Playboy’s March issue is keeping the blond busy right now.

Do you guys think Aubrey will make it as a solo artist?
