Re: Rebecca Black's "Friday" — This Week's Worst Song of All Time

I have an older cousin who married into a filthy rich family. They ended up paying insane amounts of money for one of their daughter's "music" career, while she was in her early teens. She pulled a Friday as well; recorded songs, cut a video, everything. All a vanity project, of course. She also ended up getting a lot of shit from her schoolmates, bullying and jeers and what-not.

I can't imagine what that must have been like for Rebecca Black on a national/global scale.

That said, man she is looking fine now

EDIT: Rebecca Black, not my cousin's daughter. Although she's an attractive looking woman too.

^ at the edit!

I discovered this song like last year. I torture my daughter with it.

Black didn't deserve the hate, the people who wrote the damn thing do.

At any rate, I'm seeing everything and time is passing, so I gotta go ...

She got a 6 page thread and all the bands or musicians that have talent or can actually sing get maybe 2 or less.

Is that guy who went crazy defending Britney Spears still around?

I stand by my feelings from back then.

Maroon 5's record company is spending millions to promote a far worse song. And no one makes fun of them. They deserve to be laughed off the stage.

Her garb and the expression on her face suggests she thinks she's some kind of bombshell. Second stab at stardom.

Yeah, she's still pretty much a kid, and in another 10 years she'll be all, "god, what was I thinking!" all over again.

Exactly. She's 22. She can pull that look off. It's better than when a 40-something tries to (and we've ALL seen that)

If they ever need a Cardassian for the Picard series, she should try out.

Would you dispute her self-image?

I mean, gotta git down on Friday!

Don't forget, yesterday was Thursday and tomorrow is Saturday. And Sunday comes afterwards. Partyin', partyin' (yeah).

Based on those deep lyrics, I reckon she's too cerebral for me.

I'm talking about having lived long enough for proper wisdom and discernment - I don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

Amen to that. It is a bit weird seeing comments like that.

It is odd to think that an attractive 22 year old would want to exploit her sex appeal in order to further her music career.

At least she’s an adult and can make her own decisions.

Exactly. All I was getting at was that I would bang. She's fine as hell. But then the white knights appear and it goes all to shit.

Friday is a masterpiece compared to Old Town Road.

Old Town Road is a masterpiece of simplicity.
