Kim Kardashian turned up to one of Kourtney's dance lessons and we're embarrassed for her

There are few people as comfortable in front of the camera as Kim Kardashian. The viral video extraordinaire-turned-model-turned-businesswoman has built an empire on her image, and together with the other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, stars in arguably the most popular reality TV show of all time: Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Sure, people may hate Kim and her family for seemingly being famous for nothing, but you'd be a liar if you said you weren't a tiny bit jealous.

Take Stormi Webster, for example. I'm older than her mom and, unless I somehow manage to write the next Harry Potter and/or win the lottery, I will never be as rich as the seven-month-old. When you're a Kardashian, all you have to do to make money is exist and be mildly entertaining on TV, as Kim recently proved when she got into a spat with older sister Kourtney.

And, no, the pair weren't arguing over who's got the most Instagram followers. Instead, it was Kim's nonexistent dance moves.

While she may be better known for breaking the internet by balancing a champagne glass on her oversized derriere these days, there was a time when her shoddy dance moves where the talk of the nation during her brief stint on Dancing with the Stars.

To see Kim shaking her booty way back in 2008, check out the video below:

Despite struggling through her routine, Kim was not the first person kicked off in her season, but the third. But this glimmer of dancing success did nothing for her confidence and now she refuses to even contemplate getting on the dancefloor.

Kim's refusal to dance was made all too clear in a clip from this Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in which, Kourtney tries to coax her into joining the 39-year-old and their friends for what's clearly a stupidly simple routine.

After the instructor shows Kim and the group a few moves (while Kim is sitting down), she concludes that the dance is too hard for her (even though she did much harder routines on Dancing with the Stars) and says she's a "notorious non-dancer".

"I just don't dance - I make money moves," Kim joked.

However, the 36-year-old was willing to pull us one rather hilarious move from the floor:

Kourtney was not amused by Kim's unwillingness to join in with the lesson and said to the camera, "Kim has the inability to let loose. She's not even moving. I mean, if she's just going to sit here and critique us, then she can leave."

But given the fact that Kim was literally kicked off stage by Prince for refusing to dance, it's baffling that Kourtney expected her to actually do it. The hilarious incident happened back in 2011 during a concert at Madison Square Garden.

The singer invited the then less well-known reality star onto the stage to dance with him, but instead of following his lead, she simply stood there and clapped. The superstar was having none of it and said "Get off the stage!" and she left.

Because let's face it, if Prince wants you to dance, you shut the f*** up and dance.

To see the brilliantly awkward moment for yourself, check out the video below:

Despite this incident, another very famous musician decided to try their hand at coaxing Kim into dancing during one of Kanye West's shows. And it was a woman known for her equally fabulous booty - Beyoncé.

Since Jay Z was also performing, the pair were naturally in the audience together, and when Beyoncé was getting into the groove of things, she tried to entice Kim into joining her in the mosh pit - but to no avail.

"She came to my dressing room and asked if I wanted to sit with her. Then she wanted to go to the mosh pit and she told me to dance and let loose," Kim said before revealing that she thought "her life was over" at this point.

Oh well. I mean, it was a very different type of skill - ahem, move - that made Kim famous in the first place. Goble goble.


I guess she's happier sticking to what she's used to. You keep doing you, Kim. You and your two left feet.
