If I got 13 million hits on a You Tube video and cracked the top 100 on iTunes, I don't think I would be complaining, but that is exactly what 13 year old Rebecca Black is doing. The teen, who recorded the song Friday, says that although she is making a lot of money off the song and doing national interviews and was completely unknown a month ago says that the hurtful comments about the song shocked her. I don't know why. In an interview with The Daily Beast she says she did not even really understand the words and that to her they made no sense. I don't know if it is the worst song ever as some people have indicated, but it is pretty bad. This is how it goes. I am not going to trash a 13 year old, but I think maybe her mom should step in a little bit and realize that this infamy can definitely turn into something positive.
I also think that people giving their honest opinion about a song should not be compared to cyber bullying. Should the world be reduced to only commenting when something is good and positive? Even I have problems with pronouncing the word Friday is Fry-ee-day. Of course people are going to laugh.
