It’s no surprise that Aubrey O’Day has changed a lot over the years. She was only 21 when she first hit the scene back in 2005 as a member of Diddy‘s new girl group, Danity Kane. But 12 years later, at age 33, Aubrey doesn’t just look like she’s grown up — she looks like an almost entirely new person.
A lot of that is probably the way she dresses and does her makeup, but if you take a closer look, it seems like it could be plastic surgery. Aubrey’s denied going under the knife over the years — in 2011, she talked with Celebuzz, saying, “My makeup — how much or how little I have on — is constantly affecting the way people see me in regards to everybody thinking I’ve had plastic surgery.”
She did admit to looking pretty different over the years, though.
“Sometimes I’ll look at pictures and think that maybe I don’t look like myself there,” she said in the same interview. “My eyes [do] look different or my lips look really big… It could’ve been a lip plumper, or a bad makeup artist, too much makeup, too little makeup; whatever it may be.”
But Aubrey wouldn’t be the first celeb to deny going under the knife (or needle) and then ‘fess up years later. After all, Kylie Jenner also used to deny that she had lip fillers. (And we bet Kylie will admit to even more over the years).
But even if that interview were true at the time, in the six years since, Aubrey’s had plenty of opportunities to give her looks a tune up. And it’s no secret she’s struggled with body image.
“Everybody at some point and to some degree wants to be appreciated and accepted by others,” she admitted to Celebuzz. “It’s an ongoing process. I don’t think that there’s ever a quick fix to completely loving yourself in any phase.”
For Aubrey, it seems like loving her body might’ve meant changing it. And we don’t blame her, but we do wish she’d be honest. Hey, if you’ve got the money, go for it — and if you’ve got the bod, flaunt it. But we all know where that bod came from.
