“Celebrity Apprentice” star Aubrey O’Day is shedding some light on the Rihanna and Chris Brown duet drama!
The former “Danity Kane” singer says that Rihanna’s decision to collaborate with Brown, her ex-boyfriend who violently assaulted her in 2009, brings closure to a difficult chapter in their lives.
“I like what she’s doing and I don’t think it sends mixed messages at all,” says O’Day in an interview with Showbiz Tonight’s A.J. Hammer.
“What she’s doing is bringing closure on something that was a heavily debatable topic…I love that they’re giving closure to everyone.”
On Thursday, Rihanna explained her reasoning behind the duets in an interview with Ryan Seacrest.
“I reached out to him about doing “Birthday Cake” because that’s the only person that really – it made sense to do the record just as a musician despite everything else that was gonna be the person.”
In turn, Rihanna says Brown asked her to also do the remix to his song, “Turn the Music Up.”
“Two records, one for my fans, one for his fans and then that way our fans can come together – there shouldn’t be a divide,” said Rihanna.
“You know, it’s music and it’s innocent.”
