Farrah Abraham on Feminism: "I'm Pretty Feminine"

I wanted to talk about your album a little bit too.
The album was actually released when I released my memoir, My Teenage Dream Ended. It was a New York Times best-seller. The soundtrack went with the chapters. Some people don't like to read too much. Others can get emotions through music, and that is why I did that. I think a lot of teen moms relate to that more so. It was not for mainstream coolness or anything like that. It was just a very therapeutic record that I did. Also I'm doing more music and singles that we're working on right now for different reasons.

Have you seen the Atlantic article that calls the album a brilliant piece of outsider art?
I've seen a lot of different ones that are positive and understand my unique style, so I'm happy about that. I thought I could communicate my emotions through what I was talking about, and I think everything that we create for emotional value is because we're trying to connect with other people. So I think it achieved a goal and it was very successful. I'm inspired by all music. I love country. I love electric. I love everything. So whatever I'm inspired by is what surrounds me and what I'm feeling on the inside. I encourage everyone to make their own music.

And so --
So was this not about the club at all? Because I'll make sure to tell Jackie [from Vivid] that we didn't mention any details.

What's your role gonna be for the club?
I'm here to talk about it, because I'm going to be there promoting it. It will be September 12, Thursday. And I will be there from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. It's for Vivid Live, and they put $10 million into it.

Do you like the way Vivid handled your tape, now that all is said and done?
You know what, I'm just going to get off the phone, but I wish you all the best.

Why so surprised? Young women don't need feminism when it's all about the kerching kerching. Capitalism has done a pretty good job of assimilating and monetising everything, including female sexuality, and when all a girl dreams of is riches beyond compare then, tell me, why does she need feminism?

James Deen was on the Adam Carolla podcast and said it was all a merketing ploy by Vivid. It was marketed as a leaked sex tape but it was just anormal porn shoot. He showed up got paid and left.

Why is this girl even being interviewed? It makes my stomach turn to see the celebrity that has been placed on the teen mom/drug/dui/porn/bullsh*t culture.

Gone are the days you had to be talented to be famous


Being spoiled and stupid and whorish is supposed to be a bad thing, remember? Parents, if you don't teach your children that people like kim kardashian and Farrah Abraham are supposed to be despised, where are they gonna learn it? You have to be the- [feels something in his stomach]  You have to be the ones to make sure your daughters aren't looking up to the wrong people. Only in America can people this stupid be allowed to reach such positions Why do people here in America make this kind of trash rich & infamous ? All she did was go south get pissed on. America has went down the sewer when thats all it takes to be rich & infamous.

As someone who has "worked" with her I can confirm that this comment is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg...

Why did I read that? I have never heard of this person and then I read this and now I can't get that 5 minutes back. And I only have myself to blame. And the idiot who posted it. And the interviewer. And the dumb ass who raised that piece of trash. And the network who made a show about pieces of trash. And me again. Ugh.

I agree with Kyle... her fame has come as a result of her making the best of situations, and that s her strong suit. Let s remember she s had far more distraction in her life way earlier on than most of us has had, so she hasn t been able to pursue and explore a more standard education; but at least she s still in school and still trying to better herself. She was misled and just because she made a sex tape and isn t as book smart as other people right now doesn t make that misleading ok.

Am I the only one that felt like she handled that about as well as she could have and was pretty much tricked into doing an interview about her sex tape that she didnt want to do? The girl is clearly uneducated but thats just awful journalism. Between this and the Uncle Luke editorial about UF being racist MNT is really slacking today. Whats next, see if you can get Sweet Brown to say something ignorant in an interview?

@Kyle Haines We hadn't discussed interview topics with Farrah beforehand, but in my view the sex tape is fair game. She's promoting an appearance as one of Vivid Entertainment's biggest stars -- it would've been difficult to talk to her about that without addressing the tape that got her there.
