Is Aubrey O’Day’s Song “DJT” About Donald Trump Jr?
Decades from now, when our grandchildren study this period in American history, they will look us right in the eye and ask how it took this long for Aubrey O’Day to become involved.
As you are aware by now, Vanessa Trump has filed for divorce from Donald Trump, Jr., a move that sources say has been in the works for several years. And as it happens, several years ago, Aubrey O’Day of Diddy’s assembly-line girl group Danity Kane was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice. Evidently those boardroom scenes are just as steamy and arousing as they appeared on your television; though neither Don Jr. nor Ms. O’Day will confirm, rumor has it the two were romantically involved.
All we have to go on at this stage is the leadoff track from Aubrey O’Day’s 2013 album Between Two Evils, a song called “DJT.” (His initials!) In this largely spoken-word number, O’Day pleads with a distant lover to speak his truth so that she can achieve closure: “Whatever the truth is defines the reality of you and I forever,” she says, “and I need to be able to define that before I can walk away.” The man in question—whose voice, it must be said, possesses the bass that Trump Jr.’s lacks—replies: “I thought it was forever at the time, but maybe I was lying to myself.” He goes on to suggest that he is torn between two worlds, both of which he wanted, by whispering the haunting and poetic line “I’m torn between two worlds, both of which I wanted.”
They go back and forth this way for just over three minutes, and if you have never had the experience of listening to two drowsy commuters break up over Long Island Iced Teas at the Penn Station TGI Fridays, you may treat yourself to it here:
The rest of the tracks on Between Two Evils—“Unchoose You,” “Hurts So Good,” “Before I Drown,” to name but three—hint at emotional anguish, and probably the lyrics do, too. But if you think I’m going to listen to any more of it, you’re out of your goddamn mind.
One cannot blame Ms. O’Day for losing her heart to Donald Trump Jr., though. What modern gal wouldn’t? A lifetime of stump-sitting and endangered-animal-killing is certainly seductive. And apparently he’s on his way to being a free man, so perhaps there’s a chance for this pair yet. Best of luck, you two.
In the meantime, we’ll just sit back and wait for the story of the Trump presidency to include Scheana from Vanderpump Rules, and, like, Nick Swardson or whatever. What a magical time to be an American.
