Rebecca Black's Friday Video
Worst Video Ever Made?
Rebecca pretty much went from totally unknown to overnight superstar when the video for her song, Friday, rocketed from 2 million views on YouTube to nearly 10 million in about 24 hours.
The lyrics to the song go something like this:
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
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
Who is Rebecca Black?
Well, we don't have much info for you on this one. Seems she's a wannabe pop star with a production company called Ark Music Factory in California, which holds casting calls for teen girls, then flies them to L.A. to record a single and make a music video.
Here's what Ark's website
"Rebecca Black is a fun, loving, 13 year old. She loves to sing, dance and act, and she is always looking to try something new. Now in the b8th grade, she landed the lead role in her school musical, Oklahoma! She started dance classes when she was three years old and has continued studying dance since. She studied Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, and Tap. She starred in a local commercial when she was 7 for the building toy Puzzlecraft. She participated in a patriotic performing group, performing at over 50 locations including singing the Star Spangled Banner at the Angels Stadium. At age 11, she signed with a modeling management company. She started vocal lessons at 10 years old, and she's continued with it ever since. Singing is her passion, and it's what she loves to do. In the summer of 2008 and 2009 she participated in a musical theatre summer camp. When she started going to her local public school, she immediately auditioned for musical theatre, and now succeed with flying colors. She starred in the school's rendition of Guys and Dolls, and their variety shows such as Showtime America, Broadway, USA, and Star Search. This past summer, she visited New York and participated in various workshops with cast members of West Side Story, Memphis, and In the Heights."
What we DO know is that the girl can't really sing that well. Even with auto-tune, her voice sounds kind of unprofessional. In fact, this "Chipmunk" version of the song sounds a lot better than the original (maybe that's cause it's sped up, so it doesn't take as long to listen to):
