These days Aubrey O'Day is busy trying to get her reality show off the ground, getting ready to make her debut in "Peepshow" in Las Vegas and even recording a few tracks here and there, but she knows that there's still the possibility that she won't make it as a solo act.
"[Being] on my own and [taking] total control of my career," is what intimidates O'Day about a career without the four other [artist id="2400155"]Danity Kane[/artist] girls to back her up, she told MTV News.
She knows it's not going to be easy, but she's still motivated enough to try to make it all on her own. "It's scary," she said. "Every day, I'm scared [and] I'm nervous. I feel like I'm going to fail. I let the haters get the best of me some days. Some days I feel like I'm on top of the world, like I can't be stopped."
But compared to the "traumatic" experience O'Day described of recording an album while also taping "Making the Band," maybe things will go more smoothly than she expects.
O'Day said that her life has been like "a roller coaster of emotion," and she's riding it wherever it leads. "I live for the good days," she said. "I try to move through the bad days and at the end of the day the one thing I continually remind myself of [is] at least I'm trying to do it the way I believe it should be done. If I fail, then I fail, but at least I tried to do it the way I believe."
