I don’t know whether or not you all have heard of Rebecca Black, but… I can’t help but feel sorry for her.
Here is a video of an interview of her:

Okay. So she makes a song that “sucks.”
According to the video, her song has reached #39 on the iTunes market. That’s past Justin Bieber. If Justin Bieber doesn’t “suck,” then why is her music owning Justin’s?
According to an article I read, her parents spent $5,000 to produce the video. Now they’re making much more.
The song is “the worst thing” people have ever heard. She has the “worst voice ever.”
I know a lot of people who are worse at singing. Even with autotune. But a lot of other artists make bad songs, too, so why feel the need to single one person out?
She’s thirteen. She’s still going through puberty or whatever, which means that her emotions are probably going awry. I wonder how she sleeps at night.
But whatever. Her music is the epitome of American pop music. When I went to listen to it for the first time, I couldn’t tell that this was “bad” music. Most pop music sounds like that. It sucks? Then stop listening to it and stop whining, you baby.
I think we’ve had enough of making fun of her. We know she’s bad. Move on. Justin Bieber, on the other hand, sucks, but some people don’t know that. There’s a difference.
But then again, Rebecca likes Bieber’s music, so……
