'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham's Debut Single Brings Out the Hate

Farrah AbrahamWe're at least midway through the finale season of Teen Mom, and Farrah Abraham seems like the star who has the best game plan for getting by once the MTV checks stop coming. She has a food company. A new memoir about to hit shelves. So what can't she do?

From the looks of the reactions to her musical debut ... sing. Farrah's first single, "Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom," just showed up on the In Touch website, and the comments are about as mean as they can get.

This can't be real ... This shit is horrible ... Better stick to cooking ... Is this a joke?

That's the nice stuff, folks. The others are generally much worse.

Farrah says the song was written about climbing out of the hole of despair that she was in after giving birth to daughter Sophia as a teenager and losing her boyfriend in a freak car accident at just 18. She said she's recovered, and the song is about finding happiness.

I thought she was brave to come out and talk about her use of drugs and her thoughts of suicide, so I'm glad to hear she's happy and I wanted to like this song. But the heavily autotuned song (you can listen to it over at In Touch) is hard to handle in part because you can't actually understand most of the lyrics because of the digital manipulation. And the reactions are so bad she probably won't get much "happiness" from her music sales figures.

It's nice to see the members of the Teen Mom cast who haven't blown all the MTV cash and set themselves up for failure. I wish Farrah the best. But maybe she shouldn't spread herself so thin right now. Food company, daughter, memoir ... that's enough, right?

What do you think of Farrah's foray into music?

That song is seriously horrible- I couldn't even finish listening to it.  Why do people think that just because they have some fame, they can make music?  I wish her well with all her endeavors, but really... she ought to be ashamed of the people around her who encouraged this song to be released, as she could have done without the humiliation and the bullying that comes with it.

I listened to about 5 seconds of it and couldn't understand a word..

Oh my G........that was probably the most horrible piece I've ever heard. Seriously, it made Heidi Montag and Paris Hilton's "singles" sound good. Oh god. My ears.

Mindy Reyes

Yeah, that was bad.  Not a fan of that music at all!

Bree Paul

Ok so when I read all the comments before I listened to it I just thought people were exaggerating but NO! They weren't! It truly is the worst song I have ever heard and it doesn't even sound like music!

Wow... That was BAD. This is another example of my biggest pet peeve - people who are famous for one reason or another (Disney stars, Real Housewives, etc) who decide that they should also be handed a career in the music world... I was always a fan of Farrah's ambition, but she should be totally embarassed for letting this little gem go public :$ My ears hurt.

wooooow! I'm sorry but not only did i not understand of word of that. (not sure it was english or the antichrist speaking to me) But I seriously got a headache from 45 seconds of listening to it. Thanks for making my day that much worse! and again WOW!

I gave it a listen and wow...if you're going to just go ahead and "record" without having done the actual work most musicians do; years of vocal coaching, songwriting and paying your dues singing live in little clubs, then you have to expect a backlash.

Amanda Macciaro

That was just BAD! That isn't music, sounds more like some moaning and groaning. She probably can't sing at all and they TRIED to make it sound decent... It didn't work. I wouldn't of put that out there for everyone to hear... Embarassing*
