More Danity Kane Drama: Dawn's Going Solo?!

Wargo
  So we've been suspecting something was up in the Dollhouse for several weeks now.  The girls are never partying together anymore and Dawn had a birthday party that not one of other Danity Kane chick attended.  And now my sources very close to the Bad Boy camp, more specifically Danity Kane's management, tell TheYBF.com we're right on point with the speculations.  But it's not because Aubrey and D. Woods are going solo.  It's because DAWN may be going solo.  And the other girls ain't having it! I'm told that Aundrea, D. Woods, Shannon, and Aubrey have found out that Diddy has been scheduling only Dawn to do promotional events for Danity Kane, and has been flying her out from Baltimore to him for private meetings.  And these meetings are preparing her to be he breakout star and for a solo career.  Apparently Diddy believes she's the most talented of the group and the girls are pissy because they disagree.  And they're mad their "sister" has been hiding this from them.  I have the full dish given to me directly from the source's mouth when you read the rest...   Here's part of the dish I was given about this drama: To sum it up it's the girls (D. Woods, Aubrey, Aundrea & Shannon - not as much) against Diddy and Dawn. They found out and believe that Diddy was doing some real shady stuff with Dawn on the side!  Not on the sexual tip, but flying her to him for private minutes and whatnot, basically putting together her solo project behind the rest of there's back.  Of course Aubrey has been the mouth piece in how jacked up it is and has rallied D. Woods against Dawn; hence none of them showing up to her bday party or them giving her the middle school cafeteria treatment at the recent party.  Of course Diddy doesn't care, he wants Dawn to be the star (which is why last season of MTB showed mostly her and you rarely saw the other girls) and even now he still has Dawn and only Dawn going out to do promotions on behalf of Danity Kane.  If you go to Dawn's myspace page, so does have some "newer" solo material up...I can't say I'm 100 on that's what she has been doing with Puff but it is definitely her own material.  Bad Boy is keeping it hush hush because they still want Dawn to seem like the sweet and innocent one, which she may be....but the rest of D.K. are still pretty pissy because they don't believe she is the most talented and are heated that she would go along with Puff and do recordings, meetings, and press without letting "her girls/her sisters" know about it. Interesting--especially since Dawn now has her own personal publicist Bryan (who actually hosted her b-day party for her) and she has been doing all kinds of red carpet events solo lately.   I'm told everyone in Bad Boy is trying to keep this drama under wraps but it's going to "leak" in another month or so.  But you heard it here first!

[quote comment="184238"]This is getting interesting all ready...Look at how many comments alone have generated from the "rumor" of Dawn going solo. To be honest, I think it's a great idea. Dawn has the most unique voice out of all of the DK girls...I dont know if it's the strongest, but she definitely has a nice tone. She also writes her own music--she wrote "Lights Out" on the DK album...And she may not be the best looking, but I think that only makes her more approachable as a celebrity. I guess we'll see...[/quote] Thank you because i actually bought both of their albums (yes from the store, not from the neighborhood bootlegger) and I can always tell when she is the one singing.

Dawn has the best voice in

Dawn has the best voice in the group. She has range, sounds distinct, can dance, write etc... I think she has potential to make an impact as a solo artist. She is not ugly, but with too much make-up...yes she can look a little trannish.

Ok.. To be sweet and to the point.. I don't see a problem with Dawn. Yes, DK are her sisters, but Diddy writes the checks. And if he sees potential in her, then I can't knock her hustle..

Not true. How many fake

Not true. How many fake stories I've read here about these girls ( pregnacys, fights, bla bla bla ) DAMN! But to be honest I don't really think Dawn would make it as a solo artist. She's talented but I'm not feeling her as a superstar. Not really feeling none of them as superstars, but the closest is def. Aubrey imo. I'm not saying that she's the most talented, but she's the most outgoing so she can promote herself well. She's invitated to shows like Wendy Williams, TRL, Fashionista & she's on OK.Magazine.com, US Weekly & those gossip blogs every week.. She did Brodway, she's in Estelles new video .. etc. D.Woods, she's cool, she's outgoing too, but she's not known as Aubrey. Aundrea & Shannon, well, even Ginger ( Aubrey's dog ) is getting more known than they are so /: Whtever, they better still as they are now.

I dont want them to break up,

I dont want them to break up, but at the same time I'm not knocking Dawn. I do love her voice and her personality. I'm not feeling the fact that she kept it a secret but I'm sure Diddy gave orders not to say anything, so she was just doing what she was told to do from her BOSS! He cuts the check (if she even gets check messing with Diddy azz)! I want to hear her solo songs, where can I hear them? I wish her the best of luck <3

I was wondering why i was

I was wondering why i was seeing solo songs of her on some music sites. I never even bothered listening to any of them. I don't know why they're upset, if Diddy would've been doing the same with them, they would've gone along with it too!

wellllllll Given the fact

[quote comment="184095"]I

[quote comment="184095"]I think Dawn is talented all around. The world is made up of different people and not everyone is supposed to look the same. Stop being stuck on what someone looks like that is why black women are considered bottom feeders. If we can't lift eachother up no one will. I am pretty sure many of you making those ugly comments could use a some surgery. The girls of DK are all talented we saw them struggle to get on.... Now its time to move on. Aubry just finished doing Hair Spray so does that make her a bad person. NO one had anything to say about that move she made searching for fame. She also appeared on Wendy Williams TV Talk Show a couple of weeks ago.. All of these women need to live and eat and everyone wants to live the good life. Didn't Dawn push through Hurrican Katrina to make it in the band? Dawn good luck and I wish you the best. Stop focusing on her looks and focus on her talents. That's why the industry is saturated with talentless cookie cutters (then you all want to complain that only light skin women make it big, Damn support the girl). so you all calling Estelle ugly too?[/quote] AMEN! And Sadatay said it well too! Ya'll are some mean a$$ heffas on this site!! Too each his own opinion but damm! I will agree that if Dawn is hiding her solo plans from the girls that is a shady. But business is business in Hollywood. How many people have Beyonce (and Jay-Z_ for that matter) stomped on/betrayed/bamboozled to get to the top? It's the way of the music biz. I think women suffer in the industry because they are not allowed to be themselves. No one accepts us for who we are (WE dont even accept ourselves) - we have to change our hair, fix our teeth, fix our noses, lose weight, hoe your way to the top. F*ck all that. Girl, do YOU. Dawn has a great voice and it stands out. She is not UGLY! (In my opinion) And even if she was, God created her and she has every right to pursue her dreams. Them chics aint best friend! They get paid to be civil to one another.

[quote comment="184126"]It's funny how everybody complains about all these "singers" who should stick to modeling i.e Cassie, Rihanna but when somebody who actually has musical talent is thinking about singing all people can talk about is her being ugly. Now if she was trying to be a model then that's one thing. I don't know about ya'll but I personally have never purchased an album from somebody because they looked good. So Dawn, do your thing, I wish you the best!!![/quote] Preach!! You are soooo right with this one! You never hear anybody doing the guys like that. Lil' Wayne looks like the bottom of my shoe, but he is good at what he does and that is why he is successful. Women are so hard on other women, but we should be standing behind each other and giving props when props are due. Of course, I am back on Estelle again, but that girl is talented and has a GREAT album, but all you can get anybody to say about her is how ugly she is or how she needs to get her teeth fixed. The world is not made up of these carbon copy model chicks. What ever happened to good ol' fashioned talent? Dawn actually CAN sing, and I think she should leave that disaster of a group, Danity Kane. They are just dead weight. Do your thing, Dawn!!
chilady's picture

I don't know how much I

I don't know how much I believe this one because Aundrea has the BEST voice (Christina A. material)of the group so if he would've picked anyone to go solo, I would've thought it would be her or D. Woods who isn't the best vocally but he could've capitalized on her ghetto swagger.

But not to knock Dawn's Hustle or Talent, cause Dawn, D. Woods, and Aubrey had the most hustle out the group PERIOD! so D.Woods will be fine she's on her writing tip, Aubrey "Auberella" will be just fine she has had no problems getting noticed and will continue to do so, and as for Dawn, a lot of dudes like her and find her attractive, she seems uber sweet, and can't knock her for looking out for herself cause what would you do if you were put in that situation? Specially if you're being told don't tell nobody! You would tell yo MAMA and ya MAN and if they cool thats all that matters! Plus everyone in the industry has always said she is the best in the studio, if you listen to their records the backgrounds are Dawn (which is what makes a song) and most leads are her as well second in line with the most backgrounds is D. Woods then Aundrea and Dawn be on leads and D. Woods, Dawn, and Aubrey write too Shannon dances the best tho , Whatever I wish em all luck who wants to bet we see three more seasons of Making The Band 4, (1. The Search for the Newest Member of DK, 2. The Struggle Behind Dawn as a break out Star, 3. Everybody new DK group, Dawn, Day 26, Donnie, and whoever Diddy picks from his new show Star Maker on tour again) LMAO I cant wait!!!!! DIddy sure does make some good reality TV I'll be watching!!!! Keep me updated Tasha[/quote] I so agree

I will say this though. I want to see her (Dawn) with natural makeup. Her stylist is whack for the deep red lipstick. Too much. But again, Dawn has a distinctive voice, like someone else said. Thats a great benefit compared to all the generic artists we have out now.

Dawn can’t sing, but she can dance and write her own music. That’s a plus in the industry today. You hit it write on. Dawn can write and dance. She doesn't have to be the best singer. She brings more to the table than the others. It doesn't suprise me. Diddy is all about self and business.

I hate reading this comments.

I hate reading this comments. It's generally filled with negative, hateful things from folks who are probably just as ugly and talentless as the words they write. I wish Dawn all the luck. Clearly she is the most talented of the group- from writing singing and arranging.
