D.Woods Found Out About The Danity Kane Reunion On Twitter, Says She Still Maintains Partial Rights To The Group’s Name
Last week we told you that Danity Kane’s fifth member, D.Woods spoke out, saying that she would not be participating in the group’s reunion because she would rather focus on the future. But, more of the story behind the story seems to be coming out each day. During an interview with Hot 107.5‘s Bijou Star, D revealed that she actually learned of the group’s reunion on social networking site Twitter like a lot of the general public. She maintains that there’s no bad blood between she and her former group members and that she’d consider a reunion if time permitted in the future, but something about this story seems a bit odd. Although we can all see that she’s busy, it appears that she wasn’t even invited to partake in the reunion in the first place. Check out a bit of what she had to say during her interview and let us know what you think.
On finding out about the reunion via Twitter:
“I found out when my Twitter timeline went off the chain.”
“We did go our separate ways in the fall of 2008. My main priority right now is growing as an artist. I’ve committed to projects and developing my own label, so I know right now, I can’t commit to splitting my focus on something like that. I don’t want to hold anyone back. If they feel like that’s what they want to do, and they want to do it right now, they’re going to do it. I mean you don’t have to wait for me. I’m going to support them as I’ve always supported them, and I hope they will support me.”
“I was surprised myself. After seeing the pictures and the clip with the video, I saw that they were in Los Angeles. I’m not in Los Angeles so there goes the reason why I was not in the picture. I’m actually in Atlanta right now. I’m in pre-production rehearsal for the new musical ‘Rebirth’, so that’s what I’m currently doing.”
On if Diddy has rights to the Danity Kane name:
“We as a group came up with the name. So yeah [we own that name].”
On if she’ll take legal action against the girls regarding the name:
“I’m not spiteful and I’m not going to try and get something that I didn’t put in work for, so if they are working on some new music, if they are doing some new stuff that I haven’t contributed to, that’s theirs. I got mine over here.”
On Aubrey ‘s “Diddy who?” comment:
“I don’t know what they meant by it, so I can’t speak on it and how they feel about the man but you know things happen. I know when I parted from the group I said, ‘Thank you very much for the opportunity. You know I’ve always looked up to you as a business man, as a music mogul and maybe we will cross paths again in the future. This industry is just about the ones who keep doing it. So you’re going to see me again.”
On if she keeps in touch with any of the girls:
“You know what, we are just on different walks of life and we’re spread out all over the country. It’s hard to keep up with people. There’s no bad blood to where its like, ‘I just don’t want to talk to her.”
On if she’ll consider reuniting with DK in the future:
“Where it makes sense in my schedule and the things that I have coming up, there’s a possibility. If it was brought to me, I would definitely consider it. I’m definitely focused on the future. I’m really not trying to rehash the past things, just moving forward. It’s running running into that old ex-boyfriend on that street and you think, ‘Hmmm maybe we could.’ Then you just think, ‘But how would it be different?'”
Regardless of what did or didn’t go down, she seems to be very positive, which is great.
