Ever since it first started to become “cool” to be a reality TV star with pop music aspirations, we have seen all sorts of people try their best and making it big in the music business. A number of “Real Housewives” stars — including Kim Zolciak and Melissa Gorga — have at least had some modest success with some club tracks that have brought them in a few performances here and there; however, we have a hard time really seeing Farrah Abraham of “Teen Mom” fame getting anywhere near this sort of attention or praise for her first-ever song “Finally Getting Up from Rock Bottom.”
From the standpoint of putting your emotion into the song, we have to give Farrah high marks in that this song (which you can hear over at In Touch) supposedly helps her look back on the past trials and tribulations while knowing that she can get over them. Having this sort of self-confidence is a powerful thing, and we will never discourage anyone for that. Whatever someone needs for motivation is something that they should use.
However, there is sometimes no need for someone to put their inspiration out to a discerning public. This song is completely overproduced, and there is so much autotune in here that it makes a T-Pain single sound like Aretha Franklin. You can’t even really understand a single word that she is saying, and that in itself makes it next to impossible for this song to really inspire anyone outside of herself. With the release of her new book “My Teenage Dream Ended” being about a similar subject, we almost wish that she had stuck to that and never put this song out there.
Do you think “Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom” is further evidence that all music from reality stars should be eradicated from this earth? Give us your thoughts below, and be sure to head over here for news on Farrah’s “Teen Mom” co-star Amber Portwood.
