Kim Kardashian — the singer — talks about her new single, 'Turn It Up'
So add "singer" to the reality TV star's ever-increasing list of occupations. The Ministry has tallied designer, perfumer, spokesperson and actress (sort of). Oh, and we haven't forgotten amateur porn star. That is how she became a household name, after all.
The middle Kardashian sister collaborated with producer The-Dream, Kanye West and Ciara for the track. But don't get your hopes up.
"You know it was something that I was really uncomfortable and nervous about, and [The-Dream] really just wanted me to step outside of my box and try something I've never done before. So I was really honest. I'm like, 'You're not gonna get Beyoncé here, you're not gonna get Celine Dion,' and he really pulled something out of me," she told MTV's Snooki on the Grammy red carpet.
She's releasing the single with no plans to launch an album or career in music. The proceeds will be going to a cancer organization of her choosing to commemorate her father, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003.
A noble cause — which almost makes us want to take back the aforementioned porn star comment. Almost. Sorry, Kimmie.
