Last night's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York chronicled how Kim came to the decision to record a single. She was approached by big-time producer The-Dream. The end. She had no interest in being a recording artist before—or seemingly, during—this process. In the studio she doesn't look or act excited at all, but bored and maybe so nervous that she has to poop. The vibe translates very well on the finished product, which is basically just boring shit.
I'm not one of the proverbial "starving artists," but this story makes me angry on their behalf. So many talented musicians (and other artists) struggle for years/lifetimes to get noticed, and this talentless girl has a record deal dropped in her lap just because she made a sex tape. How disgusting.
