Farrah in her music video for “Blowin.”
Earlier this week, former “Teen Mom” cast member Farrah Abraham released a music video for her new single, “Blowin,” and everyone from Gawker to the mailman had something snarky to say about it. From cracks at the song’s lyrics to unoriginal puns about its title (seriously, guys, stop gobbling up the bait), the negative comments still continue to fill her Twitter feed. But you have to hand it to Farrah: She truly doesn’t give a crap.
We reached out to the young mother to get her response to all the haters, and to find out whether there will be more music projects in her future. Here’s what she had to say:
What was your inspiration for “Blowin”?
It came about when I thought of just getting air and getting away from the negative people in my life. The bullies, road blocks… I knew after singing it to my daughter that I should actually pursue making a real single.
How do the lyrics represent where you are in your life right now?
The lyrics represent my life right now because I’ve overcome the negativity. I stepped away and got what I needed to succeed with self-love and a stable environment, which led me to understanding that by just being who I am is all I need in this world. I was happy to share this positive message.
Farrah carries her daughter Sophia across a field in her music video for “Blowin.”
Did your daughter Sophia like being part of the video?
Sophia wanted to be a part of the last scene we shot that day. It made me really happy, and, to be honest, I don’t think the music video would be the same without her. Children already ignore others and take time on their own, and I think that is something adults should refer back to as they deal with the everyday hustle of the world.
There were a lot of haters posting comments online after the video went up — what do you have to say to them?
I’m blowin all the bullies away.
What’s up next in terms of your music projects? Will you release another single soon?
I work on songs as they come, so I look forward to releasing another single in the future. I try to have all my songs relatable for my daughter in a fun and upbeat way that has a meaning.
Farrah in MTV’s “Being Farrah” catch-up special.
MTV recently aired a catch-up special with you called “Being Farrah” — what was it like to be back on the channel again?
I really enjoyed watching the “Being Farrah” special, and I think fans did, too. It was good to see the original cast of “Teen Mom” shown in a realistic perspective — with our recognition of being on TV, our lives being [talked about] in magazines and social media, traveling, doing other shows… It showed how we’re affected by it.
Are you glad you did “Couples Therapy,” and what did you take away from the experience?
“Couples Therapy” was another life-changing experience for myself. Dr. Jenn Berman picked me up and turned my life around for the better. I had just experienced another bad boyfriend’s behavior and therapy helped me make changes within myself. I’m thankful my parents also got to come get more therapy with me, which led to a lot of “Ah-ha” moments in everything I needed to change. Watching all the episodes afterward and seeing how others perceive things in such a negative light helped me realize my strength and gear my focus on a brighter future.
Check out Farrah’s music video for “Blowin,” as well as MTV’s recent follow-up special with her, which, yes, addresses the sex tape.
