A major perk of attaining one's 15 minutes of fame is evidently the opportunity to record a single.
Patricia Krentcil (aka Tan Mom), the New Jersey mother who brought attention to the condition known as "tanorexia," did just that earlier this month. In the lyrics to "It's Tan Mom," she brags, "I'm sexier than the Teen Mom / I am cool, I'm the cool one / I'm hotter than the Octomom," thus reminding us of some of her fellow tabloid fixtures who've also expressed interest in launching music careers.
And of course, plenty of reality stars -- Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and various "Real Housewives" among them -- have done the same. Here are some of their, uh, more memorable attempts at music.
