Who the hell is Rebecca Black?

Rebecca Blake became a popular name almost overnight when her YouTube music video went from a few views to close to 25 million views in less than a week.

The 13-year old singer apparently became a music sensation for the “worst song ever”. “Truly, undeniably awful,” is how Hypervocal.com describes it. “This song by Rebecca Black has to be the worst song ever written, composed, sung out loud or turned into a video,” says URLesque.

However, in an interview to the Daily Beast, Black revealed that her parents paid $2000 to the Ark Music Factory, a company that puts the work of teenagers on YouTube.

Rebecca Black said she broke down when she first read that critics were describing her song as the “worst song ever.”

Says Black on Good Morning America: “At first, when I first saw all these nasty comments, I did cry.”

However, it seems Black will have the last laugh. She began to trend on Twitter, and was even described as the “next Justin Bieber”. Not too sure if Beiber, who too became an overnight sensation at the age of 15, will agree with that.

Black’s single “Friday” is already No. 31 on iTunes just behind Enrique Iglesias and just ahead of Grammy-winner Zac Brown Band, reports the Los Angeles Times.


Even music icon Simon Powell has taken note of her and even “loves” her. ‘I love her (and) the fact that she’s gotten so much publicity,” Powell told the People magazine. “People are so upset about the song, but I think it’s hysterical.’

Powell even wants to meet Black. “Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I want to meet. I love people like that.”



Here are the lyrics of Rebecca Black’s single, Friday, which have been dubbed as the worst lyrics ever written.

Lyrics to Friday, sung by Rebecca Black

7am, waking up in the morning

Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs

Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal

Seein’ everything, the time is goin’

Tickin’ on and on, everybody’s rushin’

Gotta get down to the bus stop

Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends (My friends)


Kickin’ in the front seat

Sittin’ in the back seat

Gotta make my mind up

Which seat can I take?


It’s Friday, Friday

Gotta get down on Friday

Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend

Friday, Friday

Gettin’ down on Friday

Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend


Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)

Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)

Fun, fun, fun, fun

Lookin’ forward to the weekend
