Aubrey O’Day, former member of the Diddy-created girl group Danity Kane, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the March issue of Playboy magazine. Early last month, we heard from Aubrey herself that she had already shot her Playboy pics but remained coy on when we might expect to see the mag on newsstands. Extra! TV got their hands on a copy of the mag and provide us with our first look at Aubrey‘s new career as a Playboy pin-up:
As you may recall, Diddy announced that he kicked Aubrey out of Danity Kane in the season finale of Making the Band 4 last year. Citing his disapproval for her “too sexy” image, Diddy felt that she was no longer a good fit for his girl group … so naturally, the first thing that Aubrey does after getting kicked out of the group is pose nekkid in a men’s magazine. Sounds about right. Of this new photospread in Playboy, Aubrey was quoted as saying, “You could never imagine how empowering it is to be nude in front of cameras” … I guess this is proof of that empowerment. I understand that this issue of Playboy magazine hits newsstands this Friday. Make sure you get to your bookstores/newsstands early … I expect there to be a huge stampede of folks clamoring for this issue. Are any of y’all planning on picking up this issue?
