We're still scratching our heads over how Kim Kardashian managed to become a legitimate celebrity by making a sex tape.
But now she's attempting to add "pop star" to her resume.
At a New Year's Eve party at Tao Nightclub in Las Vegas, Kardashian debuted "Turn It Up," a dance single that she "accidentally" recorded with hip-hop producer The Dream.
"Alright, you guys. I didn't mean to, but I did a song with The Dream, and it's really fun ... and I hope you guys like it, so everyone have a drink and let's dance to my first single!" she says in what appears to be a fan-shot video of the New Year's Eve performance of the song.
Earlier that day, she tweeted, "2011 is all about trying new things and going for it! I'm starting mine w something fun and crazy!"
She then posted two "sneak peeks" of her upcoming video -- one in which she's "rockin' Bo Derek braids," and another in which she has red-tipped bangs.
Yes, hair seems to be the crucial element of this video.
So, how's the song?
We took a listen, and we have to say, it's not that bad -- if you like dance music. This is the type of song you'll hear in the club and at the gym -- and that's about it.
But do we think Kim will be able to transition into a full-blown pop star?
Let's just say that Justin Bieber is more likely to make a sex tape.
