Cupid's Pulse Article: Aubrey O’DayCupid's Pulse Article: Aubrey O’Day

Aubrey O’Day is an American singer, songwriter and reality TV personality. Originally from New York City, O’Day attended La Quinta High School in California and had a childhood that leaned heavily on entertainment, such as singing and acting. The singer went on to study political science at the University of California, Irvine, but ultimately dropped out so she could pursue her music career. Never giving up on her dream, O’Day made her television debut in 2004 when she was cast in the MTV show Making the Band, where she met her idol Sean “Diddy” Combs and competed for a spot on his record label, Bad Boy Records. Eventually, the songwriter was selected to be a part of the girl band, Danity Kane. The group released their first album in 2006, which hit number one on the Billboard 200 charts. Danity Kane followed their success in 2008 with a top charting second album, and even performed as opening acts for Christina Aguilera and the Pussycat Dolls. Despite being a breakout star in the girl group, O’Day was fired by Combs in 2008.

Shortly after leaving Danity Kane, the reality TV star signed with Universal Motown Records, where she attempted a solo music career. Her debut album Between Two Evils was released in 2013. O’Day also tried her hand on a number of other reality TV shows, such as, All About Aubrey, Celebrity Apprentice and Marriage Bootcamp. In 2014, Danity Kane reformed as a trio and released their third album, but shortly disbanded again due to a fight between O’Day and fellow Danity Kane singer, Dawn Richard. After the band’s final split, O’Day joined forces with Shannon Bex to create the music duo Dumblonde.

Aside from a music career, the singer is a cast member of E!’s reality TV show, Famously Single. The show follows the lives of eight single celebrities whose goals are to work out their relationship problems. The celebrities are coached by relationship experts and given dating advice that is meant to help fix their love lives. The advice O’Day has received from the show must have helped because she is currently in a celebrity relationship with her Famously Single co-star, Pauly D.
