Writing sure is proving cathartic for Farrah Abraham.
Hot on the heels of her memoir, My Teenage Dream Ended, which details her long road back from debilitating depression and substance abuse, the 21-year-old Teen Mom star has just wrapped her debut album — and she gave In Touch a sneak preview of the first single. “I'm happy again, and this is my song for finding happiness,” Farrah tells senior reporter Jordi Lippe of “Finally Getting up From Rock Bottom.”
Farrah — who speaks candidly with Jordi about her desolation in the wake of the death of her estranged boyfriend, Derek Underwood, and the birth of their daughter, Sophia, now 3, in this week’s issue — says the song is about going inside and really digging deep in order to find the strength to climb out of the hole she’d found herself in.
Explains Farrah, “After almost wanting to kill myself, I found meaning and happiness within.”
