Paris Hilton did it, so why can't Kim Kardashian, right? These days, everyone and anyone can take a crack at pop stardom. No doubt Kim Zolciak of Real Housewives of Atlanta has inspired many more marginally talented primadonnas, debutantes and jumpoffs with the success of her stunt single "Tardy for the Party."
And that's all fine and dandy. Unlike rock music or rap, credibility as an artist matters less in pop music and as long as you can sell us something fun, catchy and infectious, then the thin vocals and limited artistic abilities will be overlooked. (See the Jennifer Lopez chapter in the book of pop music history)
But Kim Kardashian couldn't even be bothered to get the blood flowing for her pop debut "Jam." Her vocals are flat and uninspired, much like her performance in that overhyped sex tape with Ray J. Her energy level isn't discernible as she never really varies her tone to emote anything resembling human emotion. Kim coos "Turn it up, turn it up, DJ" but she sounds about as thrilled doing so as she would ordering Chinese takeout.
The only point at which the song gets tolerable is when The-Dream — who hopefully was paid handsomely for his services as the mad doctor to this Frankenstein creation of pop music — drowns her out with background singers, autotune and layered vocals. Let's hope Kim Kardashian's foray into pop music is as successful Paris Hilton's and that it's all over with before Kim does long lasting damage to the public's hearing.
