Of Course Rebecca Black Has a New Song

… Because what kind of society would we be if we weren’t making untalented people famous for any other reason than to make untalented people famous? Don’t worry, though, folks—if you thought that there might not actually be a future for Rebecca Black, you’d be wrong. The little lady claims that she’s never going to stop singing. She did an interview with the Insider, and tells her “fans” that she’s here for the long haul: How do you describe Sing It?
Rebecca Black: Sing It is very summery – it’s all about letting the music in. It’s very different than anything I’ve ever released but very appropriate for summer. I hope people will want to sing this in their car as their drive!

Insider: With all the negative attention after Friday, did you ever think about abandoning entertainment?
Rebecca: No. It’s such a passion of mine, I would never give it up. The first moment it all went down [was shocking] but I never had that moment where I felt I shouldn’t be doing it. Singing has to be part of my life in one way or another.

Insider: What did you learn from the experience?
Rebecca: I learned to not let mean spirited people get to you. You have to keep doing and it doesn’t matter what people say – if you really love something, keep going and don’t let anyone stop you.

Insider: You’ve released three singles so far, is an album in the works?
Rebecca: We are working on an album, which is very exciting – I’ll be back in the studio this summer with hopes of it being out in the fall.

Insider: What can fans expect from that?
Rebecca: I’ve got some fun, dancey upbeat songs, but also some soft ballads.

And last, what, did Rebecca Black go through puberty or something? Because now she sounds like a thirty-five-year-old mom of four. On autotune. And Quaaludes.

  • See, THIS video is just bad. It is not the sort of catchy, horrifically unforgettable NIGHTMARE that Friday was. To paraphrase a character on The Closer talking about a video that was that show’s equivalent of Friday: “Oh my god is that not the worst video EVER. . . . I’ve watched it fifty times.”

    But, seriously, this is just bad and almost sounds a little country in places, which is really unnerving. But it’s not Friday. Friday was catchy, and it’s difficult to stop watching Friday — like how you’re afraid to take your eyes off of the monster-concealing closet door as a child.

    Because Friday was what Darth Jadus meant when he said: “I believe in the democratization of fear.”

  • I know I’m going to sound like everybody’s grumpy grandpa, but Jesus, where has all of the talent gone these days? To think that there are girls and women out there who may be just as good as Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Whitney Houston, or Linda Ronstadt and who have not yet been discovered is a tragedy. Throw on the fact Rebecca Black’s songs are now “hits” and SHE is famous makes it all a double tragedy.

    BTW, I think she may sound older due to a bit of auto-tune being thrown in there.

    Also, the most painful part of her videos is how narcissistic they are. Does every shot have to be centered on her?

    • Love Billie and Peggy, hate the vocal gymnastics of Whitney, and I lost all respect for Linda when she played Sun City while Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island. We lost Etta this year, I’m thankful we still have Imelda May and Rickie Lee Jones…

  • *sigh* this is like that episode of Freaks and Geeks where Lindsay tries to stand up for the boy with a mental disability(played by Ben Foster) because kids are making fun of him, but he doesn’t realize it he just thinks they’re friends…only with a much more depressing ending
    does she not understand that people watched her video was bad? and kind of embarrassing? i’m just kind of saddened by the possibility that she doesn’t quite understand that she’s a bit of a joke to a lot of people…
    (oh and i’m not saying Rebecca Black has a mental disability :/)

  • On a critical note, there is a lot of improvement required to ensure that Rebecca can essentially sustain her music career when she reaches 18 and older.

    On a more personal note, I still buy her music and merchandise, mainly because she deserves what she effectively fights for: her freedom. Because it’s people like those in the previous comments that I read that clearly does not understand human freedom.
