Influencer, adult film star, reality TV star, and business owner. Farrah Abraham has managed to make a living through a combination of job titles. The 28-year-old is under constant scrutiny for her questionable decisions and the way she chooses to make her money. But, what most people don’t know about Abraham, is that she also fancied herself a singer a few years back. Let’s take a look at some of the songs from the former Teen Mom star that you never knew existed.
My Teenage Dream Ended
The world was first introduced to Abraham a decade ago when she was one of four teens cast on the MTV show, 16 and Pregnant. Following the success of the show, the spin-off, Teen Mom, aired and garnered even more views. The show gave a closer look at the trials and tribulations of raising children as a teen. In 2012, at the height of the original show, Abraham released a book, My Teenage Dream Ended, which made it to number 11 on the New York Times bestseller list. However, what most people didn’t realize is that the reality star also released her first and only studio album with the same name at that time also.
On My Own
Each chapter of the aforementioned book actually shares a name with each song title on the album, but the book did far better than the album ever could. In fact, reception for the song, as well as the entire album, was overwhelmingly negative. One of Abraham’s songs from the album entitled “On My Own” managed to usurp Rebecca Black’s “Friday” as one of the worst pieces of pop music ever made.
To make matter’s worse, the lead single “Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom” actually sounded like someone vocally hitting rock bottom repeatedly. The auto-tune on the song is so heavy that it is actually unintelligible. Later, Abraham would insist that the level of auto-tune was intentional to make the record sound edgier. Still, that didn’t stop the song from being dragged. Jezebel was particularly ruthless with their review calling the song “the most horrible combination of sounds to ever be assembled in the history of audio recording.”
But despite terrible reviews for her debut album, the adult film star was determined to keep singing. In 2014, she put out the song “Blowin'”, complete with a music video. When the song premiered, Abraham admitted that “Blowin'” referred to blowing the bullies out of her life. In an interview with In Touch Weekly, the 28-year-old opened up about the inspiration for the song.
“I think all of the bully types I deal with … who are determined to be against me in my life. I want others to see they don’t need to be a follower or conform to what others think or do and let them live their lives to their full potential. I feel that to overcome the gravity of the negativity bullies try to portray on others, we really need our own space and focus to leave all of that behind and clear the negativity” the Culture CBD owner confessed.
In the video, the reality star is seen shaking off her haters, partying, and frolicking in a field with her then 5-year-old daughter, Sophia. When Abraham was asked why she chose to include Sophia in the music video she responded, “Sophia really likes the song and dances to it as much as she can.” But the reality star also admitted that there was a deeper meaning behind the decision to feature Sophia. “I also want my daughter to be better than all the gossip and negative people when she gets older” the 28-year-old admitted. Still, despite the cute factor that Sophia added, the song was received just as poorly as her first studio album.
Farrah’s daughter is her biggest fan
Luckily, Abraham seems to have come to the conclusion that singing is not one of her gifts. The reality star has yet to release any new music in years. This lines up with the 28-year-old’s ethos about making music. “Personally, music is a hobby, not my career move, but I hope others enjoy it as much as my daughter and I do” Abraham confessed. Well…all we can say to that is at least she has big dreams.
