Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez interviewed Donnie Klang the other day in New York City. The R&B singer talked about his interview with Aubrey O’Day and apologized for suggesting the former Danity Kane singer had fake boobs. He added that the Danity Kane drama was real. Donnie said it’s been tougher for him because he’s not part of a group like DK or Day26. As for another ‘Making the band’ season, he’s wanting to do his own show because he got lost in the shuffle, especially since he’s not about the drama. Watch Donnie talking to Angie below.
Donnie Klang checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@donnieklang) on Thursday (October 30), responding to the widely discredited web site M****T***O**.com, who had run what apparently was an anonymously submitted item claiming the ‘Making The Band 4’ singer was on “a local radio station in Long Island” making racially charged remarks, while not specifying the station, the day the interview took place, nor the DJ he was supposedly speaking to. Klang writes:
First things first,
I love you all for your support! I posted this note because y’all need ta know:
A few popular websites posted a completely fabricated story about me today, and now it’s circulating around the internet. It is important for me to speak to my fans and let them know that the story is 100% fiction. It’s completely made up! I love all my fans and all people of various racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. I would never, in any way, say anything racially derogatory. In addition, I love my Bad Boy family and have nothing but love for the entire label and staff. Don’t believe the lies! The story is absolutely false.
Peace & Love
Donnie Klang checked in with fans on Diddy TV’s YouTube channel, talking about going on tour with the Backstreet Boys and giving a shout out to his label boss Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. “Even though I don’t get involved as much in the drama on the show,” Klang said, referring to ‘Making the Band’, “it kind of hurts my airtime. You really don’t see me on the show. That’s because I’m the type of artist – I want to stay out of the drama, all the negative stuff. I wanna just be positive. I wanna influence kids coming up and just be that kind of positive artist. But it’s tough being on a reality show, because reality is all about drama.” As for Danity Kane turmoil, he said, “I love you girls. I wish you guys the best. Hopefully you can work it out because there’s always ways to work it out.”
Video at YouTube has since been removed.
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Donnie Klang introduce Donnie’s new video ‘Take You There’, from the ‘Making the Band 4’ star’s debut album ‘Just A Rolling Stone’, which hits stores September 2nd via Bad Boy Records. “I’ll tell you what,” Diddy said, “I expected high things for this man right her, but the album far exceeded my expectations.” Watch the intro and video below.
