She sounds reasonable from that interview. Not a bad deal for $2000. I wonder how much of the profits of this she'll see?

I hear she's going to be on the roast of Gary Shandling.

Spoiler:
"It's called Armor. It's kind of a play on words. It's pronounced 'armor' but it's spelled A.R.M.O.U.R."
I like the dj who says the next performer has more talent than "the little toe in my body has in it."

Yeah, that acoustic session was a bad idea.

Not sure where that third symbol in "Friday" comes from.

Did they break out the SunnyD after her performance?

How the hell is she able to NOT burst out laughing at those lyrics? I had to turn it off when she got to the "we, we, we so excited" part because it was just too much. It's like you could look up "stupid" in the dictionary and find those lyrics as an example of the definition.

Those two guys are actually the (and I use the term very loosely) songwriters.

Oh, I know. And one of them is the rapper on Friday. But that doesn't make it any less creepy.

The song is up to #19 on the iTunes sales chart. I'm curious what that translates into actual sales, and what percentage of that 99 cents actually goes to Rebecca.

I love the irony of this regular 11 year old kid whose parents paid a few grand for her out to sing a song about how she wishes she could just be a regular kid.
Now that the ARK has autotune perfected, maybe they can work on a video system to make ugly rich kids who are too young for plastic surgery look good.

Sorry, can't get a feelgood aura out of this. Not when there are thousands of talented musicians out there scrambling to make a dime.

Just the opposite, really.

Yeah, because no adult in a position to mentor or guide a child has ever taken advantage of the kid...

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or disagreeing, since I was fully agreeing with you. You said it doesn't make it less creepy, and I meant it actually makes it more. Don't know if that was all that clear, though.

You must realize that about 21,175,000 of the 21,176,864 hits are people just watching it in disbelief and to mock. Same with the downloads. She's the current William Hung. She'll have her 15 minutes, and disappear into the wind like so many that have gone before her.

The jury's still out on whether William Hung's 15 minutes are over or not...

Given your signature, I'm surprised you don't recognize the picture. It's from an episode of Arrested Development. It was a fictional television show: Mock Trial with Judge Reinhold featuring William Hung & His Hung Jury.
