My Teenage Dream Ended is the debut book and album by Farrah Abraham. Abraham came to prominence in the MTV reality TV show Teen Mom.

Production

In August 2012, Abraham released an autobiography My Teenage Dream Ended, published by MTV Press. The book chronicles her teenage pregnancy and the problems she faced during the time, including her drug use, the arrest of her father, and the death of her daughter's father, Derek Underwood. The musical album, produced by Fredrick M. Cuevas, is a companion work to her autobiography; each of the ten songs shares a title with a chapter of her book. The book was a success making number 11 on the New York Times bestseller list.

Critical response

The accompanying album received an overwhelmingly negative response. It has been widely criticized for its extensively autotuned vocals and bland production. Her single "On My Own" was derided as one of the worst works of pop music ever made, eclipsing Rebecca Black's "Friday". Feminist website Jezebel called one track, "Finally Getting up from Rock Bottom", "the most horrible combination of sounds to ever be assembled in the history of audio recording", suggesting that while Farrah may have kept her baby, the song should have been aborted.

But despite garnering mockery in the popular media, the arrhythmic and cheaply digitized presentation of deeply confessional lyrics was bewildering enough to lead some to instead view it as a contemporary example of outsider art. In The Wire, Andrew Nosnitsky called it a "haunting and fascinating mess of outsider pop music". Writing for The Atlantic, David Cooper Moore suggested that the album "is to teen angst what Eraserhead was to domestic angst", making it "a dark and compelling experiment in abstracting and compressing the vicissitudes of 'high school drama.'" The Village Voice compared it to critically acclaimed witch house band Salem. The Guardian ranked it 32 on their list of best albums of the year.
