I may not be some fancy, high-fallutin’ vocalist, but I’m assuming that giving birth to far too many kids does wonders for your vocal chords. Otherwise, this story from TMZ about Nadya ‘Octomom’ Suleman releasing a new single would merely be another instance of someone capitalizing on their status as an almost-celebrity despite not having a shred of talent while thousands of talented but less famous people get jack squat. But that would be a nihilistic look into how our culture values infamy over talent or character, and that would just be terrible, right … right?
Octo signed a recording deal with Global Groove Entertainment and already cut a dance track called “Get on the Dance Floor” that features Octo both singing AND rapping … no joke. The song is being produced by two guys named DJ Mr. Mig and Mike Rizzo … both of whom have worked with HUGE artists like Britney Spears, Usher, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift. Sources tell us … the recording gig came about thanks to Octo’s sex tape. We’re told she felt so liberated after filming the self-pleasure video, she wanted to find another way to express herself. We’re told she took the job super seriously … taking two whole voice lessons to prepare. Check her out recording (above) with singer Adam Barta — who’s also featured on the tune.
Oh Adam, not you too! Ugh … look, I like Adam Barta. He’s a nice guy and he makes good music. But just … what the what? Octomom singing a generic dance track with a generic title, complete with what I’m assuming will be a generic white girl rap bridge, because those are always the best part of every song (isn’t that right, Karmin?). Just … GAH. Good God, I hope she’ll be using this money to help her kids, otherwise I will drop a D.
