Friday Rebecca Black
March 21, 2011 by Post Team
Friday Rebecca Black, In less than a week, Rebecca Black’s first single was called “the worst song of all time,” praised by Simon Cowell (“Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I know”), received over 26 million hits on YouTube and lead to her name a global trend in Twitter (Charlie Sheen above, no less). Shown on Good Morning America on Friday, Black read a message that appeared online in the aftermath of the song in which one anonymous commenter said: “I hope you cut and I hope you get an eating disorder as see enough, and I hope to go to court and die. ” Oh, and Black is only 13 years old.
The reason for all the attention is on Friday, a fool, illegally catchy tune sung in a strangely monotone individual (with the help of auto-tune, naturally) with lyrics about how Friday comes after Thursday and before Saturday and is like, totally a really fun day out with friends and stuff. Video is also accompanied by a literal mind-bogglingly, the highlight of which is a little share of its (hopefully more) friends who decide to take a seat in the car to school.
The speed with which the song and the video was awesome viral is a snapshot of how things work in the era Twitter. Comedy blog Tosh.O appears under the title song “Writing songs is not for everybody” on March 11 before Gawker seized him, calling him “the worst music video ever.” From then on streaming video through Twitter, with comments referring to Black as the new Justin Bieber and news items quick sample of the label of your most recent “emergent phenomenon.”
The problem is that all has very little to do with pop or music, or even Black himself. The merits or otherwise of the song have been lost in a storm of vitriol out of place. The song was not written by a 13 year old, but two adults, Clarence Jey and Patricia Wilson, who own and run ARCA Music Factory, a label created to support (usually small) budding pop star. Apparently, the mother of Black and 2,000 pay-Jey and Wilson for their daughter could record and release a single with an accompanying video.
The unfortunate result of all this is that ARCA Music Factory Black inadvertently shown that being a pop star is not just having a catchy song and a cheap-looking video. It also involves dealing with abuse comments on YouTube (Black has said he feels he is being “cyber-bullying”), awkward interviews (a radio station asked him directly if he was making any money from the individual), mocking versions and to po- , long haul links (guilty!). For Black, it was a chance to record a single star in a movie and have something to show your friends and instead has become the butt of a joke inadvertently instigated by others, that has led to having to defend in front of millions of people on primetime television. So far, the only contribution Jey and Wilson has been an email in which states Jey Black “is really [an] amazing singer” and that “… the concept seems to have gone through a lot of limits, good or bad. ”
