Aubrey O'Day 'Covers' Somebody That I Used Know

No she did not just change the lyrics!!!!

Aubrey O'Day just released a cover of a song we didn't need to hear again Somebody That I Used Know as her new single…. with a few changes.

For some reason the former Celebrity Apprentice contestant decided the song would be better if she switched up Gotye's words. Like, a lot.

So, instead of a song about breaking up that everyone can relate to, her version is about a mistress that is mad at her lover for leaving her for his family.

What an, um… inneresting take!

PRESS PLAY (above) to hear cray cray cover yourself!

We don't care for it (sorry Aubs), but we know someone that might!

This Just In: Gotye And Black Eyed Peas Having A Decent Year!

Gotye Five Times Platinum Black Eyed Peas

The digital receipts have been counted, the numbers are in, and the big winners so far in 2012 are…

Gotye and the Black Eyed Peas!!

In less than six months, Euro-Aussie Wouter "Wally" De Backer — a.k.a. Gotye — has sold over five million copies of Somebody That I Used to Know!!

That's like 4,975,000 more albums than all the albums K-Fed sold COMBINED!!

Also, Gotye didn't shoot himself with a 9MM handgun so, really, this year couldn't get any better!!

The Black Eyed Peas, meanwhile, are racking up impressive career achievements!

I Gotta Feeling went platinum eight times over, giving the group a whopping 22 certified singles under their collective belt!

Fans of the late, great legendary Whitney Houston can hold their heads high, too. Her Greatest Hits album just went five times platinum!

Hooray for money!!

Carly Rae Jepsen And Gotye Collide For One Awesome Mashup!

Okay, okay. We know. We’ve probably heard enough of both songs by now, but THIS mashup is a MUST listen!!!

California indie duo Pomplamoose oh so seamlessly mixed together the chord of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe and the melody and lyrics of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know into a ball of amazingness!

Check out the mashup, titled Do Not Push, (above)!!

SO great!!! Now, as for some fun facts about the duo?

They don't lip-sync when recording their videos and, if they sound familiar, their music's been featured in commercials for Toyota and Hyundai!
