Aubrey O’Day calls her Instagram feed an “ART museum” after a fan called her out for Photoshopping herself into desirable vacation pictures.
A look at the singer’s Instagram feed appears to show Aubrey in India, Bali, Greece, Bora Bora and a myriad of other enviable locations. The problem is, the Danity Kane alum probably hasn’t been to any of those places recently. On Sunday, August 21, a TikTok user called out Aubrey for editing images from “other content creators” or “random promo images.”
In response to the viral TikTok video, Aubrey posted a clearly edited photo that shows her in an extremely skimpy bikini hugging Jesus Christ. Jokingly, she tagged her location as “Heaven”.
While her “Heaven” location was clearly a joke, she took issue with those who mocked her Instagram feed.
“And not that I need to explain myself, but I’ve been in this industry for over 20 years and I’ve been traveling the world since I was 7. If I want my Instagram to be organized like a museum of ART is what the f*** is gonna happen,” she said in part of her rather profane Instagram caption.
Aubrey, 38, even seemed to think she was doing her 953,000 Instagram followers a favor by sharing the images of hard-to-reach places.
“I’m an artist, a REAL creator. I do all my creativity, from my music to my movies. when I’m filming and vacationing alone,” she wrote. “I don’t need to be flown in. Not to mention a lot of the photos I give you are of places where you have to spend hours climbing mountains to get there.”
Funny enough, in February the singer posted a sunny photo hinting that she was in Bali. The next day, Aubrey posted several bikini photos implying that she was enjoying the snow at Mammoth Mountain in California.
At no point does Aubrey – who has previously been accused of altering images – acknowledge that the images are altered. Yet in her clapback, she demanded that subscribers “respect my aesthetic.”
“I work hard to give you all beautiful content that feels like the places I travel vibrate…because I want you all to vibrate high with me,” she wrote before focusing on the woman who brought the less than realistic Instagram Feed to light. “Lil tok girl, I’m so sorry for your workplace letting you sit on my page all day with binoculars…but I suggest you learn this lesson fast: you don’t even have need to focus on others to be your own version of special and needed in this world…you can make positive changes just by using your own gifts…stop looking left and right if you want to move forward. “
