A small record company has launched a video vendetta against Sen. Scott Brown, claiming that the Massachusetts Republican and his daughter Ayla, a singer, backed out of a deal to develop and promote the American Idol semi-finalist's career.
Wayne Laakko, a co-owner of Double Deal Brand Records, says losing Ayla Brown "nearly bankrupted" his company. He says she agreed to make at least two more albums and that the Browns owe the label a "substantial amount of money" for merchandise, production, and public relations work. (Brown's attorney denies the allegations.) Now, Laakko says, he's "disgruntled" and is "having a little fun." On Sunday, Laakko posted a bizarre video to Double Deal's YouTube page in which Brown, egged on by an interviewer, answers a question about whom he might like to "stalk."
"Uh, let's see, who would I stalk?â¦How about, uh, probably one or all of those pussycat girls," Brown replies, apparently referring to the burlesque troupe-turned-singing group the Pussycat Dolls.
Laakko edited the videoârecorded in 2006, and one of six he says he plans to releaseâto intersperse it with video, music, and images of the Dolls. You can see that version below. Here is the raw footage, which Laakko provided to Mother Jones:
