All it will take is a good autotune producer, a company with a few bucks and this chick will be the next Ke$ha. I guarantee you she has enough lack of talent to make in today's pop environment.

This is, by far, the best parody video I've seen:




I especially enjoy the non-sequitur monster voice that mysteriously appears for just one phrase, then is never heard from again. These boys are geniuses.

People hate on Ke$ha, but she's actually pretty talented. She writes some great pop music.

That lil jon vid is pretty lazy, not even close to being in sync - somebody spent 5 minutes in final cut and it's worthy of watching on youtube? I'm not seeing it.

It's not the worst song of all time but it definitely isn't great. Her voice has been manipulated to sound so weird.

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

I just saw the clip of her on Leno the other night. They showed a clip of the video (and had her lip sync the song 'live') and they said that she is an 'internet sensation' with over 30 million hits, celebrity fans, and so on... but they never once even hint to the real reason the video took off in first place. I understand Leno is the king of softball interviews, but to not even address it in a gentle way is strange. If I was unfamiliar with the clip and my first exposure to it was on that Leno episode, without any context, I would be thinking "WTF?!?" It makes it seem like 30 million people legitimately love that song.

Didn't it only get "exposure" because Daniel Tosh either tweeted it or mentioned it in a blog, and shit spread from there

The comments were opened up on youtube and they seem to be coming in 20-30 per second. Pretty funny.

New Rebecca Black Songs on Way As Friday Tops 2 Million Song Sales — 03 / 25 / 2011

Move Over Major Record labels, independent artists are becoming top sellers on iTunes today. New music artist Rebecca Black is living proof independent careers are more possible than ever. Recently going viral with a $2000 music video shot in California, her single "Friday" is going to earn over $1 million dollars thanks to her innocence.

It's official. We are a nation of morons.

Rebecca Black will probably only see about 10K of that million.

According to a recent EW interview, she and her family purchased the rights to the song before it went viral, so she's going to rake in the cash for it and give some to Japan Quake relief.

Well, see, that's a problem, because we can't make fun of her any more.

Anything without those asinine lyrics is an improvement.
