Remember the mid-aughts pop group Danity Kane? ... No? Let me remind you.
Danity Kane was a Diddy-manufactured group born from MTV’s Making The Band 3 in 2005. They had a few Top-40 hits, but as most made-for-TV bands do, they fizzled out, had a hiatus or two, came back on the scene for a bit and ended things for good in 2014. So, why is this relevant to today, specifically today’s political climate?
Enter Aubrey O’Day.
O’Day was a founding member of Danity Kane, yes, but she was also in a little show called Celebrity Apprentice, which, you know, has a thing or two to do with the current President of the United States. According to Page Six’s exclusive report, the President’s son #1, Donald Trump Jr., was an adviser on the show during O’Day’s season in 2011, but apparently (allegedly), he did more than just advise.
Per Page Six, “Don Jr. ‘pursued [Aubrey]. It was him who chased her,’ said a source familiar with the situation. ‘He told her that his marriage was already in the process of dissolving.’” Page Six also reports that this alleged affair happened around the time that Vanessa Trump was pregnant.
As we know now, that marriage in question certainly dissolved—Vanessa filed for divorce last week.
But now new speculation (from the internet, naturally) is emerging about a song from O’Day’s 2013 album Between Two Evils. The song is called “DJT” and might just be about this alleged affair! *BIG GASP*
Here are some lyrics from the song in question:
Whatever the truth is defines the reality of you and I forever
And I need to be able to define that before I can walk away
I thought it was forever at the time but maybe I was lying to myself
Is that what you want?
You want to believe that everything with me was a lie? A fantasy?
And you want to go back and live in the life that you had have forever?
I don’t know, I couldn’t do what I said I would do
So that answered the question for me
I’ll always want you and always wonder about it
But it doesn’t matter because I have to stay here
Is this about Donald Trump Jr.? “DJT” is his initials, after all. Will we ever know for sure?
Commence the popcorn eating. We might be in for a wild ride.
In the meantime, listen to “DJT” below and judge for yourself.
