If we were going chronologically, Rebecca Black should be the next Jenna Rose, since this video came out months before Black became a household name.

Fate can be a cruel thing, though.

Rose's debut single, "My Jeans," was actually released in October, but will now be considered by many to be a Rebecca Black knockoff, and a bad one at that.

We mean awesomely bad. Watch:

Things in common with Rebecca Black's "Friday" ...

  1. Hilariously awful lyrics
  2. Comedic doses of auto-tune
  3. Unlawful driving by 'tweens
  4. Random African-American guest artist
  5. Setting new low for human civilization

Justin Bieber has sampled it.

Nick Jonas has sang a few lyrics in concert.

But no one has paid tribute to Rebecca Black's "Friday" quite like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon. The talk show hosts, who have agreed to be best friends for six months, collaborated on the track during Fallon's show last night.

The performance (which included The Roots and Taylor Hicks) came after Colbert accepted Fallon's challenge to cover the YouTube smash if Fallon's audience came up with $26,000 to give to DonorsChoose.Org. Both sides came through with their ends of the deal, leading to the following hilarity:

Rebecca Black may have a number of supporters - Simon Cowell and Lady Gaga have both expressed a certain admiration for the YouTube sensation - but Miley Cyrus us NOT one of them.

Asked about the 13-year old, Miley told Australia's Daily Telegraph: "It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn't just be able to put a song on YouTube and go on tour."

Snaps, yo!

TGIF? Not to Miley Cyrus.

Cyrus claims she isn't a fan of how people use the Web in general, saying: "I do not Tweet, I do not social network, I try to stay out of it. I complain enough about people knowing too much about my private life, so to go out there and exploit myself would be silly and hypocritical."

Miley did just return to Twitter, however.

She's also heading Down Under for a tour this summer, and she's made it clear she won't be available to any potentual Australian suitors, telling the newspaper: "I'm definitely not coming to Australia single!"

Wow. Guess Miley wasn't kidding about doing a better job keeping her private life private.

We have not heard the last of Rebecca Black. Not by a long shot.

The 13-year old singer recently signed with a major music label, and has now revealed the name of her next single: LOL. Pretty appropriate, given the reaction of many critics, isn't it? Black is in the process of recording the track, sources say.

"I like the fact I am singing like a 13-year-old girl, not trying to be anything else," Black says, previewing her upcoming album and adding:

"I would consider some [songs] teenage love songs but I want to keep it appropriate and clean. People were saying, 'You're the worst singer, this is the worst song.' They criticized my voice and the lyrics. But I call them negative Nancies. They can try to rain on my parade but as far as I'm concerned they are raining on their own parade."

We haven't heard the last from Rebecca Black.

Thanks to the help of Ryan Seacrest, on whose radio show Black appeared last Friday, the 13-year old singer has been signed by music manager Debra Baum to her label, DB Entertainment.

What kind of music can we expect from Black in the future? The aspiring artist told Entertainment Weekly a few days ago that she wants to record "dance anthem-like stuff."

What about working with famous songwriters? Says the singer: “That’s not a question you should ask me - my parents just throw song ideas at me, and I’ve been listening to a billion different songs.”

She's hated on by millions, beloved by Lady Gaga and parodied by Conan O'Brien.

But one thing is certain: 13-year old Rebecca Black is an Internet and television sensation.

The rising, controversial star sat down with Entertainment Weekly to speak on a number of topics, including one heartfelt cause...

On donating YouTube and iTunes proceeds to earthquake/tsunami relief in Japan: I felt really bad about it. I’ve always wanted to do something about all natural disasters, and I realized now is my big opportunity where I can really help.

On props from Gaga: That’s so cool! I feel so star-struck, even though I haven’t met her. It’s so surreal, it’s so crazy. I was just listening to “Born this Way.” I really love all of her songs, I have almost every song of hers on my iPod and I think she’s really a lyrical genius. Her songs are just so upbeat and fun and catchy.

Lady Gaga says Rebecca Black is a genius. We're not sure about that, but she sure is ... something. The poster child for an entirely new genre of music, perhaps.

Black's hit song did not become a hit because it's good. HECK no. It only has tens of millions of views because it's just too perplexing/amazing not to share.

On the day before the now-celebrated weekly holiday that made Black famous, Conan O'Brien one-ups the Internet phenom with a terrific parody of "Friday."

It's called ... wait for it ... "Thursday." Watch after the jump:

Is Rebecca Black is the worst singer in human history? Is "Friday" only "good" because it is so, SO beyond bad? Are you laughing at her, and loving it?

Lay off, says the spokesperson for all things cool, the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga. In fact, we should bow down to this fledgling music star!

"I think it's fantastic," she in her recent Google interview. "I say Rebecca Black is a genius and anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of $h!t."

The Queen hath spoken. Consider yourself enlightened.

Her notorious hit is named "Friday," so this is only appropriate:

Rebecca Black will be a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this Friday night, a fact that has the 13-year old more pumped than if she met Justin Bieber. Almost. Okay, not really. But it's still cool.

“What’s even better than being able to appear in the Tonight Show with Jay Leno? Having my bestfriend be able to come with<3″ Black Tweeted yesterday.

The aspiring artist also gave a shout-out to Nick Jonas, who covered her single during a charity event over the weekend. Wrote Rebecca:

“I think @nickjonas did an AMAZING job with Friday! You’re amazing, Nick."

UPDATE/CORRECTION: It appears as though Black appeared on The Tonight Show last night. We regret the error.

Typically, all Nick Jonas needs to do to make teenage girls scream is show up someplace.

But the singer really made fans go crazy at the Concert for Hope last night - and you won't believe how: by singing a verse from "Friday," the track that has made Rebecca Black famous/infamous.

Love that 13-year old singer or find her all that's wrong with the Internet, fans in Universal City, California went crazy when Jones covered her new smash. See /hear for yourself:

Nick, his brothers and Selena Gomez performed at the third annual gathering for this event, which raises money and awareness for cancer research. Watch the latter sing her hit, "Who Says," below.
