YouTube sensation, Rebecca Black, gave her very first serious interview to AP, in which she talked about her music career and confessed she doesn’t want to be remembered as the “Friday” girl. Rebecca’s hit “Friday” had more than 100 million views.
The 13 year-old girl, who has been called the worst singer ever and has received frightening death threats, has big dreams and wants to be able to make music and actually sing it for her fans. Rebecca is not a terrible singer, y’all.
“I’m definitely not some normal 13-year-old girl that barely anyone knows around school anymore,” she proclaims.
“People think I sound like a robot, and in that video, I do sound like a robot,” Rebecca acknowledges while perched on a chair next to her mother in Pettus’ backyard. “I don’t want to be known as the `Friday’ girl. Hopefully, I can be known as Rebecca Black and not the `Friday’ girl. I want to be a performing artist. That’s what I’ve always wanted to do.”
“I was bullied all the time in school,” Rebecca says. “I don’t know what was so different about me that made people want to pick on me. I thank those people because if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here right now. I would probably still be sitting at home crying. I’ve dealt with that my whole life. I’ve learned to have a thick skin. I laugh at them now.”
Rebecca wants to become her own person and artist. She has already gotten several offers to sign a record deal, but she wants to do things right and be certain of the direction she wants to take. Rebecca is here to stay! However, it will be almost impossible for her to get rid of the improbable hit “Friday”.
Fun, fun, fun… looking forward to the weekend!!
