Danity Kane singers Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex reunited to form the hypnotic pop duo Dumblonde. Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex said visuals will be a one major element in their new alternative-pop duo dumblonde. O’Day and Bex say they shot music videos for most of the songs on dumblonde’s debut.
O’Day and Bex premiered the video for their song “Carry On” on Perez Hilton’s website. Dumblonde just released their “American Horror Story”-style music video for their new single, “Carry On.” Be careful while watching, the strobe effects might cause seizures and the song might just turn you on as Aubrey O’Day & Shannon Bex cast their entrancing black magic.
Danity Kane, a girl group that was created by Sean “Puffy” Combs on MTV’s “Making The Band,” broke up last year reports that singer Dawn Richard was violent with band members Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex.
The Daily Mail reported that Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex were in the middle of a private recording session when Dawn Richards came into the studio. According to the Mail, Dawn was enraged after learning that Aubrey and Shannon were meeting behind her back to discuss business and record tracks.
Bex and O’Day were recently interviewed by toofab about their dumblonde and the breakup of Danity Kane.
“We were definitely shocked and we were in bed for a good week and crying and trying to figure out what do we do now?” Bex told toofab.
“We completely respect the past we came from, we wouldn’t be here without all the opportunities,” Shannon told toofab, “but I think we’re all ready to have the next chapter.”
Aubrey said Dawn hasn’t “made any effort” to speak to her ex-bandmates since the fight.
“We always say when you’re swimming upstream continuously, you’re not in your current, that’s when you know you have to trust what you feel and move on,” O’Day told toofab.
“I think we fought that for years with Danity Kane.” “We were never on a stream, there was a gut-wrenching feeling during every part of it, but you have to remain professional and bonded in front of everybody. It’s hard. We’re lucky to get to do what we do and to ever show any of the bad days is ungrateful.”
Since breaking out as a duo, dumblonde finished their debut in a very short time.
“We love to create and we love working together so we thought why not get in the studio,” Bex said.
“We’ve been able to do a lot. We didn’t even get one music video done in the last album because everybody was focused on the wrong things,” explains Aubrey. “We literally came out the gate with 7 music videos.”
O’Day also broke through on reality shows like “All About Aubrey,” “The Celebrity Apprentice 5,” and “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality.”
