Kim Kardashian's "Jam" A Hurdle Too Big To Clear

Stick to what you're good at: A simple, yet, invaluable lesson that can save you lots of embarrassment. Kim Kardashian hasn't learned that lesson, but she will soon when she breaks into the music industry with her pop debut, "Jam (Turn It Up)," a nightmare of a song created and recorded by R&B sensation The-Dream.

Rocks Off learned the lesson of "stick to what you're good at" much earlier in life during our 8th grade year, when we decided to briefly leave distance running to take on the 300-meter hurdles, because it looked cool.

If only Michael Jordan had decided to take a crack at pro baseball a year earlier, we might have learned from other people's mistakes and saved ourselves the embarrassment of that fateful race at Elsik High School in 1992.
