Rebecca Black: Driven to Tears Over Cyberbullying

by at . Comments

Granted, we dubbed "Friday," the single released by Rebecca Black last week that garnered millions of YouTube hits in mere days as the worst song in recorded history.

But this aspiring artist says that's nothing compared to the personal attacks she's received since the video made her into a celebrity.

"At times, it feels like I'm being cyberbullied," Black tells The Daily Beast, saying she was sent messages that read: "'I hope you cut yourself, and I hope you'll get an eating disorder so you'll look pretty.'"

The 13-year old adds "I don't think I'm the worst singer, but I don't think I'm the best" and then explains the origin of the track:

It was part a $2,000 package her mother paid to Ark Music Factory, a Los Angeles-based production company for teen hopefuls. She chose to release "Friday" because she could relate to its simple themes. Hoping to one day truly make it big, Rebecca has one dream in mind:

"I am in love with Justin Bieber. [A duet] would make my life!"

age does not matter. nobody should bully at all! point blank! its a haterd crime. she is an upcoming singer and i can understand if people would tell her she needs to fix this and that, but going out there and even typing that, they should be sued for that.

Wow, you have to be a seriously twisted, hateful person to say things like that to a 13-year-old. "I hope you cut yourself, and I hope you get an eating disorder because then you'll be pretty." That's just wrong. People are so quick to spread hatred and they don't care because they think "Oh, this person is a celebrity. It's the price of fame." Celebrity or not, cyberbullying is cyberbullying.

People need to keep in mind that though Friday is a terrible (and hilarious) song Rebecca Black didn't write it and I'm sure she didn't autotune the hell out of it either.
