Is this a sign of the apocalypse? There are so many covers of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know” that the world didn’t need another one, especially one from Aubrey O’Day. If Gotye didn’t like “Glee’s” rendition of his humungous hit, he’s definitely going to hate the former Danity Kane singer’s version. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ordered a hit on her. It’s that bad. LOL.
The recently fired “Celebrity Apprentice” has turned the beautiful song into an electro stripper track. Much like JoJo’s cover of Drake’s “Marvin’s Room“, Aubrey reworks the original lyrics to tell it from a woman, correction, an angry woman’s point of view. Empowering girl anthems usually work, but Aubrey comes off disingenuous and ridiculous with her attempt. She swaps out words and replaces them with “asshole“, “f*cking liar” and other expletives. Here’s an example.
You’re just a fucking liar that I used to know,” she venomously seethes on her icy electro-R&B cover. “I should have just walked away, but I stayed and watched you turn into some coward that I used to love!”

What do you think? Do you think Aubrey needs to be punished for exposing our ears to this travesty? Or am I completely crazy and it’s a brilliant cover? Sound off below.
