Now Kim Kardashian can claim her own rap song, but luckily she's not the one singing this time.
Soulja Boy's new tune named after the reality show star features lyrics like "Damn, she's fine, she's on my mind/ She's so beautiful from the behind." If you choose to check it out, don't even try to count how many times the rapper says the word "swag."
Luckily Kim was feeling more loving that litigious when she heard about it - she tweeted this about the tune: "Wow! Oh souljaboy… I love it ;-) ! #Swag." So it sounds like Soulja won't get sued from profiting off of Kim's name (Old Navy has to be so annoyed right now). Maybe Kim loves the tune because of the monotonous, monotone way that the rapper repeats her name over and over again - it's almost like he's trying to hypnotize listeners into becoming soulless Kardashian "dolls."
Soulja isn't the first singer who has used a celebrity's name to try to sell a song - Pitbull didn't fare as well when he referenced Lilo's jail time in "Give Me Everything." Linds was so upset by the line "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" that she decided to sue the singer over it.
Somehow Eminem has managed to avoid similar troubles with celebs even though he's referenced tons of stars in his tunes over the years. In "The Real Slim Shady," he sings about Tommy Lee getting violent with Pamela Anderson; he disses Will Smith for not cussing in his rap songs; and he talks about Christina Aguilera's sex life. He takes it surprisingly easy on Britney Spears in the song, but he does dress up like a really ditzy version of her in the music video (meanwhile the actress playing poor Christina is a blow-up doll.
Mrs. Eddie Cibrian might be more well-known for posing in bikinis and being a cheater than her music nowadays, but she'll forever be immortalized in the Barenaked Ladies' song "One Week" with the line, "Hot like wasabi when I bust rhymes/ Big like LeAnn Rimes." The song also references a history of shirtless-ness, something swimsuit-lover LeAnn can identify with (now if ony she'd eat some of that Chinese chicken).
Sometimes singers use their songs to honor dead celebs - Diddy's "I'll Be Missing You" tweaks the Police song "Every Breath You Take" and turns it into a tribute to his fallen friend Biggie Smalls. However, Fergie, will.i.am, and the rest of the Black Eyed Peas might wish they could change a reference to a deceased celebrity in one of their songs - "Don't Phunk with My Heart" includes this line: "I'll play Bobby and you'll play Whitney/ If you smoke, I'll smoke too/ That's how much I'm in love with you." Since drug use might have played a part in Whitney Houston's death, the line seems a little out-of-line now.
One really sweet song that mentions a celebrity is Taylor Swift's tune "Tim McGraw" - Taylor's debut single about a McGraw song that brings back memories of a summer love helped launch her successful country music career (and Tim was probably pretty flattered by its title).
So do you have a favorite song that references a celebrity or one that you can't stand? Sound off in the comments!
