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!"

Club goers at NYC's Avenue also say Greene and Followill were "dancing and flirty" at that establishment on Tuesday night.

Earlier this month, rumors sprung up that linked Followill with Miley Cyrus. Insiders claimed the pair had been exchanging R-rated text messages. Greene actually co-stars with Miley in the upcoming film LOL.

Might they be sharing more than just screen time?

Megan Fox can definitely make movie goers swoon. But can she make us laugh?

Judd Apatow wants to find out.

The man behind Seth Rogen's breakout role 2007's Knocked Up has now set his sights on making Fox into a comedic actress, casting her in his upcoming sequel to that hit. It will center on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who are reprising the characters of Pete and Debbie.

Says Apatow of the project:

"People were really taken by those characters. I think people really emotionally connected to the challenges of their marriage and I thought, you know, they were only a small portion of the movie. I'm a television writer, so I always want another episode. I always want another 80 episodes."

It's unknown what role this gorgeous Armani model will play, but it should be an interesting career move for the actress. Maybe she can take her shirt off during a scene or two.

"This song is about love and strength and is dedicated to our friends in Japan."

That's how Will.I.am introduced his group's rendition of "Just Can't Get Enough" last night, as The Black Eyed Peas followed Lee DeWyze and performed on the American Idol results show.

Toned down a bit from their Super Bowl spectacle, the single featured Will.I.am on the piano and Fergie in a white dress with St. Patrick's Day-themed nail polish. A nice touch. Check out their performance now:

The season nine American Idol champion, whose album sales have been less than stellar, performed a new single ("Beautiful Like You") and offered advice to the remaining finalists: "Just remember why you tried out in the first place. You guys are fine, no matter what happens."

Inspiring words... and an impressive performance? You tell us:

With her face plastered on tabloids and with a recent arrest on record, Christina Aguilera faced the press yesterday.

The singer made her first public appearance since being booked for public intoxication, telling journalists gathered for an event to hype NBC's The Voice that life can be difficult in the spotlight.

"We're only able to be seen through the microscope of the media and what people gossip about," Aguilera said.

On the panel, Christina joked around with fellow judge Adam Levine and played with son Max throughout the interview. She continued:

"You take the good with the bad. It's by telling our stories, sharing our experiences and really giving a first hand look at us as human beings [that shows] who we really are, apart from what we seem to be."

Her goal as a judge on this American Idol-like competition? To inspire contestants.

"The Voice isn't about tearing people down. I want to bring people up. I want to empower them and give them all the tools I had. I love that I get to be apart of that."

For the first time, a pair of Jonas brothers have spoken out about long-time friend Demi Lovato.

The young female singer has been battling personal demons for months now, recently exiting rehab and thanking her fans via a new wrist tattoo.

When asked in the latest issue of Details about his ex, Joe Jonas was understandably quiet, simply telling the magazine: "I wish her the best."

However, as posted below, Nick Jonas was a little more open about Demi at a charity event for the Alzheimer's Association last night, saying: "I think that I'll always wish her the best and hope that she's had a good recovery and just all of our thoughts and prayers are with her."

Just how seriously is Vanessa Hudgens taking the latest round of scandalous photos that depict her making out with friend Alexa Nikolas?

The actress met with the FBI for over an hour today in her lawyer's office, providing federal agents with information about her computer and email and whatever insight she could assist with regarding a hacker who may have done this before.

100% Clothed

Authorities suspect the same person who leaked Vanessa's pictures has also broken into the accounts of over 50 A-listers, including Scarlett Johansson, Ali Larter, Busy Phillips, Miley Cyrus, Emma Caulfield, Addison Timlin and Renee Olstead.

This is serious business and let's hope the pervert is apprehended and brought to justice. In the meantime, though, let's also back up for a moment: are there Scarlett Johansson nude photos out there?!?
