[artist id="2400155"]Aubrey O'Day[/artist] says she'll be sticking to her musical roots on her solo album — but when the world will hear that album is yet to be determined. She has yet to make a formal announcement about which [article id="1606131"]music label she'll be working with[/article].
"I'm still honoring my current commitment to my previous situation, so when that's honored I will definitely announce what label I'll be signed with, and the music that I'll be doing," she told MTV News on the red carpet of the film "Pedro." "I'm a pop star. I mean, that's what I do, that's what Danity Kane mostly did. We had our R&B roots as well, but I think that mixing pop with rock" will be her [article id="1602807"]musical direction[/article].
O'Day said she looks to artists like [artist id="1231768"]Kelly Clarkson[/artist],
[artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] and [artist id="710231"]Pink[/artist] for inspiration. "I love being in the club and having empowerment songs that are songs that you wanna get ready [to go out] to. The songs you wanna hear in the club, the songs you wanna hear when your ex-boyfriend hurts you, the songs you wanna sing to your girlfriends," she explained. "I definitely would make that music."
Speaking of ex-boyfriends and girlfriends, O'Day, who has said that [article id="1602077"]she isn't gender-specific[/article] when looking for love, said, "Everybody deserves basic human rights. I mean, I'm a huge supporter of the gay community — possibly a member myself, you never know. And I definitely feel like, I don't care what you are in life, gay, straight, trans, whatever you are, whatever color you are, whatever you believe in, everybody deserves basic human rights."
