Tara Van Releases New Song “Fucked-up-ness”
Toronto-based singer-songwriter Tara Van released a new song “Fucked-up-ness” on March 24, 2023.
The song is the second single of 2023, following “Back In Love” released back in February.
It was written by Tara Van, Patrick Cederberg, Dae Hyun Lee and Yolanda Van Der Kolk-Brown.
“I wrote my song, 'Fucked-up-ness,' after attending a bold one-woman fringe show by Vikki Velenosi,” Tara Van explained of the song. “In an unexpected turn of events, Vikki's raw performance mirrored things I had been experiencing my whole life but never had the words for: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Her autobiographical theatre piece helped me see my life as the tragicomedy that it is. I went home feeling joyfully and painfully seen. Shortly after, I started the process of getting the help that I need.”
- She continued, “Despite some advances, neurodiversity is still stigmatized. It is often dismissed as a lack of resilience, or seen as a source of suspicion. For those of you out there who are feeling lost or overwhelmed – talk to a therapist and/or doctor. Assumptions of normativity are fucked up, not you. Ok, maybe you too…but on your terms.”
She added, “This song is about embracing your fucked-up-ness! We've all got our shit, don't feel pressured to mask it. Being human is being fucked up. Worship your weirdness and join me in committing to diversity, equity and inclusion.”
