Reality star Kim Kardashian has clarified her desire to embark upon a music career and said she currently has no plans to release a full-length effort.
According to Kardashian, her temporary foray into music is simply for a good time, as well as for a charitable cause.
“Basically, Ciara came to me and was like, ‘You’ve got to meet The-Dream,'” Kim explained in an interview. “I was not into doing a song. I thought, ‘Everyone kind of tries that, and it doesn’t really work out so well.’ So I talked to friends like Kanye and a few of my other musical friends, like this is their life. They gave me good advice. They asked me what I do for fun, and I said, ‘I go shopping, I hang out with friends.’ And they said, ‘We go to the studio for fun. Come have fun with us. Don’t think too much about it.'” Kim continued, clarifying that an album is not in the works: “There’s no album in the works or anything — just one song we did for the show, and a video Hype Williams directed,” Kim said. “Half of the proceeds we’re giving away to a cancer foundation, because The-Dream’s and one of my parents passed away from cancer. It’s just all having fun — with a good cause.” (Billboard)
Kardashian has also provided details on collaborating with director Hype Williams.
“Hype Williams directed the video. It is so crazy,” she teased. “I mean his looks that he put me in [are crazy]. He really had say in what he wanted, I guess, [for what] Kim ‘the artist’ that I was playing in this role would look like, as opposed to the everyday glam Kim that you’re used to seeing. So, it was really fun to play dress up and have all these other looks that I never really tried before.” (MTV)
Details of the Hype-directed music video being in the works landed online last month.
Kanye West teamed up with Kim Kardashian and Hype Williams for a music video shoot in L.A. yesterday (December 28) — but it wasn’t for his own album … it was all for Kim’s upcoming single. Sources connected to the video tell us … Hype — the most famous music video director on the planet — spent hours working with Kim and Kanye during a secret closed set shoot. As we previously reported, Kim is working on an entire studio album with super-producer The Dream — but it’s unclear when the world will finally get a chance to hear KK’s voice. (TMZ)
Reports of a rumored Kardashian album coming together emerged on the Internet a few weeks ago.
She has conquered the world of reality television and has established a successful empire of celebrity endorsements, but is Kim Kardashian reaching to far with her latest project? Kim has been in the studio working on a new album. Could Kanye West have a role in Kim’s musical collaboration? Khloe Kardashian recently addressed rumors about Kim’s intriguing relationship with the “Runaway” singer. “No, they are just friends,” Khloe revealed last week while attending the Lakers game in Los Angeles. While there is nothing romantic going on between Kim and Kanye, there is always the possibility that the two stars have a new professional collaboration in the works. (Examiner)
