Is Melissa Gorga's 'On Display' the worst 'Real Housewives' song yet? We may have a winner!

There are plenty of terrible pop songs out there. But there’s something especially gross about singers who revel in the public’s dislike for them, when, in reality, the public doesn’t care enough about them to even have an opinion.

Lindsay Lohan was already “tired of rumors starting” before any of them had. X-Factor contestant Cher Lloyd told haters to “get up out [her] face” on “Swagger Jagger“—her first single.

And now there is Real Housewife of New Jersey Melissa Gorga, whose new single “On Display,” attempts to tell off her critics while explaining to them that Gorga is, in fact, famous. Ugh.

The worst in a long line of Housewives tracks, “On Display” celebrates Melissa’s shameless ploy for celebrity status, but, as if trying to awkwardly squeeze into the Rebecca Black-esque “Stop bullying me!” moment, also attempts to paint Melissa as a victim of relentless pop-culture persecution.

“Everybody want to steal my crown,” she whines, not realizing that we, too, could spend $3.93 at Party City if we actually did want a personal princess tiara.

Check out the tragic track below:

“I can feel the weight of the world pushing down on me,” Melissa explains. As you may or may not know, it’s, like, really stressful to decide to be a singer in your mid-thirties and then have your husband build an in-house studio in the basement while starring on a reality show. It’s sorta like the weight of the world, guys—the whole world.

But for a Real Housewife, life apparently gets even more difficult than that! Melissa says she constantly has “paparazzi watching [her] do [her] thing!” I’m not so sure I believe that one, considering she wasn’t even on TV when she recorded this song. Let’s be honest, Mel—there were no paparazzi following you around then, and there aren’t now.

Still, she claims, “It don’t matter what you say, I’m still gonna shine.” In that case, I have a request. Please stop singing. Now shine!

    I still think Kim Z’s songs are the worst. I haven’t heard Michael Salahi’s song though.

  • asher

    Countess LuAnn’s songs are so horrendously awful, they are actually kind of fun…in a totally unintentional way, I presume.

  • nick

    i like ON DISPLAY…

    • Barbara

      I dont know whats wrong with you people!! You like LUann;s songs OVER this one!! And my GOD KIM cant sing to save her own life!! Melissa at least is TRYING this is her first song Give her some credit!! The song is GOOD!!!

  • km

    It may be one of the worse songs, but Melissa is one of the better RH singers (which I know isn’t saying much).

  • Ally

    Her song is pretty bad..but I still like her. Well “like” may be a little strong– If I had to choose to be friends with her or Teresa I’d def pick Melissa. Teresa is such a bitch.

  • rick

    At least this song and Kim Z’s have a catchy beat, Countess Luann music is cheap and sounds like it tooke 99 cents to produce

  • Samuel Bronkowitz

    Why didn’t my comment post

  • Keisha

    Its DEF not as bad as Count Luann’s! But I still don’t like Melissa! Lol!

  • Tribunal

    From what I’ve seen on the show I actually think she can sing, but ‘On Display’ is just awful.

  • PN

    I don’t like it when some reality people think they want to record a song. It’s a letdown to the more experienced recording artists that have been doing it for YEARS! They know they can’t sing! It’s mostly this dance pop stuff that they’re doing that doesn’t sound good at all!

  • She Stinks!

    What is she complaining about in this song? What pressure does this b*tch have? What paparazzi is following her? None. She doesn’t do anything? Shut up Melissa and please sit down.

  • Jane

    This article is gross! Melissa’s song is very catchy & beautiful! Evryone’s singing it around!

    • Barbara

      I agree !!! definitelt catchy :)

  • JustAnOpinion

    Eh, Melissa Gorga’s song is what it is if you take it at face value: a couple of producers write a song-by-the-numbers with some crappy lyrics and have someone (with not a bad voice but not particularly great either) sing behind it. The fact of the matter is without the money behind it to bring in the producers of the song, she’s pretty much your average housewife singing karaoke.

  • NonEntity

    Luckily for these “stars,” badly done Karaoke songs are what the public buys millions of copies of.

  • genny

    Really? This is freaking hilarious!! Who does she think she is? Jenny from the Block??? Hahahah! What a poser! No one is “watching you” and the paparazzi dont know your name!!!

    • nicki

      At least Melissa can sing well….Luann and Kim had to be a joke. Man, they got big ones!!!!
