Remember how we told you a hot second ago that Kim Kardashian was headed into the recording studio
in her quest to go from reality TV star to singer? Well, she’s already done with her first single! Ha! Think of all those stupid musicians out there who spend days, weeks, months, years
writing music — Kim has just gotten started and she already has her first song done. Slackers! Anyway, presenting “Shake,” sung by Kim Kardashian and the wizardry of auto-tune.
UPDATE: Oh hey, guess what? You can go back to hotly anticipating Kim’s first single, because apparently the warbling on this track isn’t her. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Willow Smith went on “Ellen” for her first live television performance, ever. Beforehand, Ellen gifted her with this lovely neckbrace, so that she wouldn’t hurt herself while whipping her hair. It’s got shiny stars as well as pics of Ellen herself on it. Cute! [People] Keep reading »

It’s Hammer time. MC Hammer has changed his name to King Hammer and released a new video for a song called “Better Run Run.” So who should be running? Jay-Z. Apparently, Hova alluded to Hammer’s money trouble on the Kanye track, “So Appalled.” And this is Hammer’s response. Sample lyrics: “Devil said, ‘Imma give you the world’ / ‘I’ll take it, plus give me a girl’ / ‘Mr. Devil, can you give me a sign’ / He said, ‘Throw the Roc up, that’s one of mine.’” Yowch.

Amy Winehouse has come out of “hiatus” to spawn a new single, “It’s My Party.” The track was produced by Mark Ronson, and it’s a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 track of the same name. So … how does it sound? Well, I’ll let you be the judge. To me, it sounds, and I hate to say this, slurry. Musically, it’s nothing new: Motown redux. Vocally, it’s kind of sad. But I’m no Simon Cowell! Tell us what you think of the latest from Miss Winehouse in the comments. The song will appear on Quincy Jones’ upcoming “tribute” album, Soul Bossa Nostra, which drops November 9. [ONTD] Keep reading »
