There a lot of people who say Kim Kardashian has no talent — but we all know that isn’t true; not only is she a successful business woman and noted fashion designer, but girl can also smell cavities. She’s a woman of many talents, come to think of it — but, unfortunately, singing isn’t one of them. Of course, that didn’t stop Kim from releasing a single back in the day (sorta like how it didn’t stop many, many celebrities who came before her).
The year was 2010. It was a simpler time… there was no “Snapchat”; Obama was still in his first term; we never — even in our wildest dreams — could’ve imagined a world where Kylie Jenner of all people would get her own Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off; and Kim was dreaming a music career.
It wasn’t so far off — some of our favorite reality stars have tried to translate their fame in to singing careers, including Kim’s one-time BFF Paris Hilton (though, we will contest “Stars Are Blind” was a banger and we will fight anyone who disagrees).
Anyway, Kim was eager to get in the studio — and had access to some really great people, including The-Dream, who produced it, and her now husband Kanye West, who made a cameo in the video. While we all have nothing but fond memories of Kim’s failed attempt to top the music industry, she has since called the song her biggest regret (and this is coming for a woman who married someone for 72 days and endorsed Sketcher Shape-Ups…).
“It’s definitely a memory, and it was a fun experience. We gave the proceeds to a cancer organization,” Keeks told Andy Cohen in 2014. “But if there’s one thing in life that I wish I didn’t do… I don’t like it when people kind of dabble into things they shouldn’t be. And that I don’t think I should have. Like, what gave me the right to think I could be a singer? Like, I don’t have a good voice.”
