‘Teen Mom’ Star’s Disastrous Singing Debut
‘Teen Mom’ Star’s Disastrous Singing Debut, Farrah Abraham’s debut is so bad, you can’t even tell what she’s saying. The Worst Reality TV Singers Ever: The 2012 List, Congratulations, Spencer Pratt. You are officially no longer The Worst Reality TV Singer Of All Time. That (dis)honor now goes to MTV D-lister Farrah Abraham, of “Teen Mom” semi-fame, whose inappropriately titled debut single, “Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom,” puts her atop this list for 2012–and possibly in the recording hall of shame for life. Congratulations also go out to “Jersey Shore’s” the Situation, because with the deserved addition of Farrah to this countdown, Sitch (who squeezed in at number 10 last year with his eponymous rap abomination, “The Situation”) has been fist-pumped right off the list.
Yes, last year Reality Rocks compiled a top/bottom 10 list of the worst reality “singers” (and I use that term loosely) to ever unfortunately gain access to a microphone–and with the premiere of Farrah’s new audio atrocity, it seemed time for an update. Because “Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom” seriously makes Real Housewife Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy For The Party” sound like something recorded by Adele. The Auto-Tune on Farrah’s song is layered on so thick, it almost doesn’t sound like she’s singing in English…but obviously, no amount of studio trickery and gimmickry could ever be enough to render Farrah’s strangled seal-yelp of a voice even vaguely listenable, in any language.
The fact that this song is in any way associated with MTV, a network once known for breaking great artists from the Cure to Guns N’ Roses to Nirvana, positively makes me want to weep. And really, every single listen to “Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom” will end in streaming tears, and possibly blood streaming from all listeners’ eardrums.
