We almost feel like we owe Rebecca Black an apology.

After seeing her pawn her daughter off on her parents last night on Teen Mom, it's good to see Farrah Abraham is putting all her free time to good use.

She recently came out with her book, My Teenage Dream Ended, and now, having just wrapped her new album, has leaked a preview of the first song.

“I'm happy again, and this is my song for finding happiness,” Farrah Abraham tells In Touch of the track, titled “Finally Getting up From Rock Bottom.”

A nice sentiment, but from the opening lyrics - Dude (ahhh!) dude (ahhh!) - it's clear the song is beyond terrible / unintentionally hilarious. Listen:

With overproduced vocals, nonsensical lyrics and zero coherence, "Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom" makes "Friday" look like Grammy material.

Farrah 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 the 21-year-old MTV reality star and mother of Sophia, “After almost wanting to kill myself, I found meaning and happiness within.”

We're certainly glad she was able to search within herself and slay some of her demons. Now she just needs to search for a better career.

What's your take on Farrah's new song ...

EL James is coming out with a companion album of sorts for 50 Shades of Grey ... classical style, not bow-chick-a-bow-wow, body-slapping style.

Unlike the Fifty Shades of Grey “soundtrack” playlist presented on the bestselling author’s official site, this record will feature strictly classical music.

Sadly, it does not include Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis reading 50 Shades of Grey passages, although honestly that could sell millions.

Take a look at the brief video trailer for the album below...

EJ James personally selected 15 works she said inspired her trilogy (Fifty Shades of Grey, Darker and Freed) to include on the special album.

James is “thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote [Fifty Shades] are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy.”

The album “aims to provide the perfect accompaniment to the Fifty Shades experience, setting a mysterious, alluring atmosphere with just the slightest hint of danger…”

Follow the jump for the OFFICIAL track listing of composers who no doubt dreamed that centuries after their death, their music would be used as the backdrop for Christian Grey ransacking Ana Steele's body night in and night out ...

The late Aaliyah has a new single out, with Drake rapping alongside the R&B singer's beautiful voice on her latest, posthumous track.

The previously unreleased track, "Enough Said," can be heard below:

Take a listen.

Working with Aaliyah, who passed away in 2001 at the age of 22, is actually something Drake had wanted to do for quite some time.

"I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon," he told the UK's Tim Westwood while promoting his Club Paradise Tour overseas in April.

"Some special things. Great things man. Great things for music, period."

Does the track live up to that billing? Tell us in the survey below: What do you think of Aaliyah's new song with Drake?

Cher Lloyd's new song "Want U Back" is drawing comparisons to Carly Rae Jepsen's smash hit "Call Me Maybe" with its infectiously bubbly beats.

While Cher, 19, is British, she and the Canadian Carly Rae both got their musical starts on reality shows (X Factor and Canadian Idol, respectively).

Carly Rae holds the #1 spot on the pop chart and has inspired more Call Me Maybe covers than we can count. Safe to say it's the song of the summer.

Cher's "Want U Back" is up to #12 and climbing, though. 

In order to boost its popularity, Lloyd will be releasing a bonus version with Snoop Dogg (sorry, Snoop Lion) on her new album Sticks + Stones.

What do you think of Cher Lloyd's track? Hit material?

Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and American Horror Story Season 2 shares his love for music critics in the new issue of Inked. And by love we mean disgust.

"Music critics are all f**king idiots," Levine proclaims in his interview with the magazine, with which he discusses the band's new release, Overexposed.

“There’s obviously a certain balance between pursuing an audience and pursuing what you love to do, but I love what we do," the singer adds.

"I would never put out a record I didn’t want to listen to.”

Making music is up there with tattoos on Levine's list of favorite things. He says he got his first, of a dove, when he was 21. Many more followed.

His latest: A string of beads around his neck. “I was in Japan and I got this necklace. I’m not sure why I got it. I think I was bored. But I like it.”

Levine will be pulling double duty on TV this fall, on The Voice as well as on FX. Of his upcoming acting debut in Ryan Murphy's AHS, he says:

“It’s challenging ... the first thing I did when I got the job was ask some of my friends who are actors what the f**k I was supposed to do.”

Here's a photo of Adam, tattoos and all, from Inked ...

It's been nearly eight months since Melanie Amaro walked away with the inaugural X Factor title in America, but the talented singer has only first come out with her debut single this week.

It's titled "Don't Fail Me Now," it's written by Livvi Franc (who is responsible for hits by such artists as Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson) and it's a message to Amaro's hoofers, as these sample lyrics prove:

“I’ve paid my dues, I’ve paid the price, I’ve prayed for you almost every night. I’ve walked the longest road, so don’t fail me now, feet don’t fail me now.”

Give it a listen and then weigh in:

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

For Rebecca Black, it will always be "Friday."

The 15-year old tells Billboard Magazine that she has no plans on slowing down her music career any time soon. In fact, she's nearly finished recording her debut album, a CD whose influences include Rihanna and The Black Keys.

Will any of those artists be collaborating with Black?

No, says the artist: "Since it's my first album, we're really just starting off and getting the base but maybe next time."

And, yes, Rebecca plans for there to be a next time. And a time after that. And a time after that. Asked if fans can expect more videos in the future, Black didn't hesitate, replying:

"For sure. Until the day I die. Until the day I die."

Fortunately, death threats against the singer have passed. So let's all hope that day doesn't arrive any time soon.

Please. Watch the video and weigh in on it now!
