Kim Kardashian on singing: I'm no Beyoncé

Christina Aguilera can rest easy. There won't be any vocal aerobics or powerhouse pipes on display when Kim Kardashian's first record, "Turn It Up," drops in about three weeks.

Kardashian, who collaborated on the one-off single with music producer The-Dream, admits to MTV that she was concerned about her singing skills before heading into the recording studio.

"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," says the "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" star. "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."

Ultimately, Kardashian was thrilled with the music and the fact that the song will benefit charity.

"I'm proud of myself that I tried something. It's all in fun," she explained. "We just had a good time and the proceeds are going to a cancer organization [because we both] lost a parent to cancer. So it's just fun."

    When I was a kid my dad brought home a record (thanks dad)of a bunch oh dogs barking out the song Jingle Bells. I'd rather hear their new CD then listen to one of Kim's.

    Kim is delightful and honest. I endorse DISH Network for their honesty as well. DISH Network has over 200 HD channels available so when the single drops be sure to hear it clearly. I have worked with DISH for over 2 years and highly recommend them to anyone interested in music and fashion. Try Palladia HD and FASHION TV HD. You will be glad you did!

  5. Beyonces huge hips

    Kim may not be as "talented" as Beyowsay but she is far better looking and was raised with a more proper etiquitte. Plus B has those huge child bearing hips and has yet to squirt out a puppy and once she does her hips are gonna be wider than aretha fat belly.

    Kim is cute but I find Billy Ray Cyrus to be cuter.

    She's not only not Beyonce, she isn't anyone, including herself. She's a waste of bandwidth.

    She's so attractive. It's just a shame that she has absolutely nothing else going for her.

    Oh Kim, Kimmy – she's no Beyonce. DUH?! Reeally girlfriend you can hardly speak let alone sing. But money can buy anything including a single wherein she collaborates with some of the hottest producers out there. Is her 15 minutes DONE YET??

    Nope, but you are closer to being a P0rn star than she is, also you're closer to being a washed-up has-been than she is, a talentless hack than she is, etc., etc...

      Sweetie there are many things that you are not and famous for what reason? basically your name much like the Hiltons, the Richie, and all other famous for no talents. Thank God you realized you couldn't sing. Now why don't you and the other no talent girls go out with your dog in a purse, have wine for lunch, and pose for those nasty paparatzi?
