Some would think that being on TV would be enough to make anyone happy. Everyone gets to see you and you make a pretty penny. But these reality stars wanted more and decided they were going to reach for the musical heavens. Well, it just goes to show that with enough cash and some really good auto tuning, anyone can put out a song, make a music video, and call themselves a singer.
After an extensive search, we came across many reality stars that recorded songs, but a few also made music videos. Obviously we had view, and we couldn’t help ourselves from saying, “OMG! WTF are we watching!!!?” So after going through the torturous task of watching every single video we could find, we've managed to narrow it down to the top 10 worst. Drum roll please! Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls -fasten your seat belts and pray for mercy because here are the 10 reality stars that should have never picked up a mic and made these amazingly awful songs...AND videos!
10. Kelly Osbourne - "Papa Don't Preach"
Out of all the videos we really weren’t too offended by this one, but we did find it a little awkward how Kelly was strutting around and trying to dance. The main reason that this video made the list was because she remade a Madonna song and as far as we are concerned no one can do a Madonna song better than Madge herself.
9. Tila Tequila - "Stripper Friends"
From the very start of this video, like the rest, your senses are attacked. From the off key singing (even with auto tune), the barrage of strippers, and grinding extravaganzas, you can’t get away from the utter awfulness in this video.
8. Melissa Gorga - "I Just Wanna"
You know that feeling you get every time your mom tries to act cool but it just doesn’t work out. Well, be prepared to start feeling that way. With a very forced sexy/cool delivery from everyone in this video, to the overly hard dancing and constant hair tossing, this video is a culmination of “Mommy, no” moments. We’re surprised no one got whip lash from all the hair flipping.
7. Paris Hilton - "Stars are Blind"
Although she is now currently signed to Cash Money to record music, we all know that Paris is only good for one thing. Ok, maybe two, apparently she’s a good DJ as well. Aside from the singing, what put this video on the list was the fact that parts of it reminded us of a cheap version of the Chris Isaak video for “Wicked Game”. Originality is key to having a good video. Unfortunately, this will not be the end of the Paris Hilton “singing” career.
6. Farrah Abraham – "Blown"
This was the video that prompted our dive into the depths of reality star music video hell. After watching the horrible lip-syncing, the Twitter and Facebook dancing profile pics, what looks to me as fake hater and “fan” tweets, and the ear bleeding auto tuning to the MAX, this video definitely made the list but surprisingly it wasn’t the worst of the worst. Shocking! There are actually videos out there that are WAY worse.
5. Countess Luann - "Chic, C'est La Vie"
Countess Luann, girl please, you were born in Berlin, Connecticut as LuAnn Nadeau. Your video is such a sad attempt to portray yourself as being high class but alas you just look ridiculous. And as for your singing, it’s a bad shot at trying to sound the way Madonna did in “Vogue”. Once again, only Madonna can do Madonna and “Countess” you are no Madonna. Also, please stop trying to speak French. You think you sound French but you don’t. We cringed every time you said, “Chic c'est la vie, c'est bon, c'est bon."
4. Kim Kardashian - "Jam (Turn It Up)"
As if we already didn’t know that Kim believes the world revolves around her, she felt the need to record a song and make a love fest video to go with it. Even with the auto tuning her nasal singing just irritated the heck out of us, but the kicker is that the video has nothing to do with the song. Someone please explain to me what a 4 minute and 35 second video of Kim doing multiple photo shoots, getting her makeup done, crawling and rolling around on the floor have to do with “they playing my jam”. We are all ears waiting for a good explanation. Wouldn’t it make more sense to show you at a club partying, or in the car driving and you turning up the radio, we’re just saying
3. Heidi Montag – "Higher"
This entire video makes no sense. Not only does it look like a home movie that someone’s dad would take, but when the video starts you hear a voltage sound which has nothing to do with the song. Then you're hit with 3 minutes and 27 seconds of Heidi running around the beach, rolling around in the sand, and over using the signature jazz hands. Now the singing is a barrage of really bad pitch and off key “high” notes. And the pièce de résistance is the video ends again with the STUPID voltage sound. Why?
2. Kim Zolciak - "Tardy for the Party"
Kim should have been completely embarrassed to put this monstrosity of a video out. From the flash light that was clearly used as a spot light, to the very noticeable synthetic wig, to the party that was more of a social gathering of 5 people; this video was a complete and utter disaster. This video looked so cheap that even a blind man would look at it say WTF is this garbage? As for her singing even the auto tuning couldn't save it.
1. Kenya Moore – "Gone With the Wind Fabulous"
And now we have the worst video of them all. When we first saw this video we couldn’t tell if it was a comedy skit or the actual video for this MORONIC song. For the first 2 minutes of the video you are hit with some really, REALLY bad acting. Then Kenya goes into this Wonder Woman like twirl but doesn’t change into a superhero costume. WHAT! Then the music starts for her song and the rest let’s say is all downhill from there. But the ultimate OH HELL NO SHE DIDN’T part was when she tries to be like Beyonce. YEEEESSS, HONEY!!! Throughout the video you see snipets of her trying to reenact the “Single Ladies” video. She even had the never to act like she did something at the end imitating Beyonce’s out of breathe ending. All of that plus the heavy set woman walking into church wearing a thong bathing suit gives her the honor of holding the WORST Reality Star Music Video of 2014.
So there you have it: The Top 10 Worst Reality Star videos. But we can’t leave it at that. Here are two videos that didn’t place but get honorable mention. Misery loves company, and we will see you all in the emergency room. Hopefully they will be able to stop our eyes and ears from bleeding.
11. Jo De La Rosa - "U Can't Control Me"
12. Laurieann Gibson – "Addictive"
