Exclusive: Aubrey O’Day Talks About Her Nude Photo Shoot For Playboy

Singer says of Markus Klinko session, it was 'one of the most liberating things that I've done as a woman.'

Between talking about her high-profile split from Danity Kane and addressing the recent rumors about her sexual preferences , Aubrey O’Day has been all about displaying her personal life in a very public fashion lately.

But for the singer, who was kicked out of the group for allegedly hogging the spotlight with her over-the-top antics, those mini-dramas pale when compared with her upcoming photo spread in the March issue of Playboy magazine.

While spokespeople for the magazine refused to confirm the shoot when news about it first broke in late November, O’Day spoke freely with MTV News about the images.

“I’ve done the cover of Playboy,” she said late in December. “You know, I think that Playboy for me was one of the most liberating things that I’ve done as a woman.”

Scanning the pics on her Macbook laptop while chilling in Costa Mesa, California, O’Day showed off the results of her session with photographer Markus Klinko, who has done portraits of Mariah Carey and Pamela Anderson in the past and who shot the cover of Beyoncé’s 2003 album, Dangerously In Love.

Taken amid sessions for her solo debut, O’Day said she was surprised at the negative repercussions from her earlier, revealing shoot for Complex magazine, which is reported to have played a role in Diddy’s decision to drop O’Day from the group.
