13 year-old Rebecca Black became an overnight YouTube sensation after she posted a video of her single â€œFridayâ€, which has been described as the â€œworst song everâ€ (watch video HERE). “Friday” currently has more than 16 million views.
The company responsible for the wave of young teens with their own music videos is called Ark Music Factory. Rebecca did not expect to become a super star, but it hasnâ€™t been easy to deal with all the media attention and hurtful comments from people all over the world.
“I didn’t write it at all,” Black says. “‘Friday’ is about hanging out with friends, having fun. I felt like it was my personality in that song.”
Says Ark Music executive Clarence Jey, who co-produced the hit: “Rebecca Black is actually [an] amazing singer [with] a unique tone and a fantastic fun person.”
“I want to show people there’s more to me than they think,” Black exclaims.
In an interview for Good Morning America, Rebecca confessed that some of the comments are really hurtful and she feels like she is being cyber-bullied (watch video below). When asked about the worst comments she has received, Rebecca said:
“‘I hope you cut yourself, and I hope you’ll get an eating disorder so you’ll look pretty.’ When I first saw all the nasty comments, I did cry â€¦ I don’t think I’m the worst singer, but I don’t think I’m the best.”
The girl doesnâ€™t have such a bad voice. Give her a break, haters! Rebecca would simply love to meet and sing a duet with her Idol, Justin Bieber.
“I have Bieber fever,” she told GMA. “I am in love with Justin Bieber. [A duet] would make my life!”
