The 12 Most Awkward Reality Star Pop Careers Ever
Bet you forgot about most of these...
But while it was definitely an *unexpected* move from Essex lad, he's definitely not the first reality star to make the big move into music. So let's take a look back at some of the most awkward attempts at pop stardom ever, shall we?
1. Kim Kardashian
How could we NOT start this list with Kimmy K? 'Jam (Turn It Up)' wasn't quite the #1 single we expected from her, but we still listen to it whenever we need a good laugh.
2. Paris Hilton
We're just going to say it - 'Nothing In This World' is an absolutely banger. The video is amazing. Paris Hilton needs to release more music.
3. Jess Wright
Jess may have a pretty nice singing voice, but this weird Ibiza club song and matching awkward video was just not alright.
4. Heidi Montag
Oh Heidi, you know what you did.
5. Farrah Abraham
There's auto-tune... And then there's this.
6. Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino
Way to cash in on a catchphrase, Mike. But Fatman Scoop, how did you let this happen?
7. Tyra Banks
OK, so Tyra was obviously a huge supermodel before 'America's Next Top Model' turned her into a reality star, but she DID use her show to promote her debut single. She even put some contestants in the video - it's uncomfortable.
8. Pauly D
Oh look, another Jersey Shore alumni. Pauly D was always more of a DJ than a singer, and to be fair, if we heard this song on the radio, we'd just assume it was an Avicii track. Not bad.
9. Amber Rose
Um, this sounds like a Kesha song.
10. Brooke Hogan
If you don't remember Brooke Hogan or this video, then well done to you. We're 80% sure this used to be our ringtone.
11. Kelly Osbourne
THIS WAS A TOP THREE SINGLE IN THE UK. LET THAT SINK IN.
12. Jasmin Walia
TOWIE star Jasmin auditioned for The X Factor - does that count? (Yes, because we really wanted to include this video).
