She's been mocked endlessly on the Internet, but Rebecca Black has a major fan in... Simon Cowell?!?

Yes, the formerly harsh American Idol judge and world famous record producer says he's a big fan of this 13-year old, who has endured one hateful comment after another from anyone who has listened to the single "Friday."

"I love her [and] the fact that she's gotten so much publicity," Cowell tells People. "People are so upset about the song, but I think it's hysterical... I want to meet her. Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I want to meet. I love people like that."

Simon has other business on the mind these days, too: he's bringing The X Factor to Fox in the fall and will soon be announcing stars to join L.A. Reid on the judges' table.

By now, you've probably already seen this. If you haven't, well, prepare to have your mind/ears blown. Either way, what better way to kick off the weekend!

If Rebecca Black's anthem "Friday" doesn't get you in the mood to kick back, let the stress of the week roll off your shoulders, and live it up, then what will?

Exactly. Because it's "Friday." Time to start partyin', partyin' yeah ...

Why are 13-year-olds driving convertibles? Did she need to point out that Saturday and Sunday follow Friday? Who can say. But we feel enlightened.

In response to the criticism of the unintentionally hilarious auto-tuning, the teen has announced that she will release an acoustic version on iTunes soon.

Can it possibly live up to this original masterpiece? Time will tell, but thanks to Rebecca Black, this time of the week will never be the same.

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!"

Racking up millions of YouTube views and mentions on celebrity gossip sites like this one, Rebecca Black's "Friday" has become an instant Internet sensation.

Little did we know it was just a Bob Dylan cover sung by a no-talent hack.

The legendary singer of "Blowin' in the Wind," "Like a Rolling Stone," "The Times They Are a-Changin'" and other American anthems has such an incredible resume, some of his works are lost in the shuffle, hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

Maybe now, "Friday" will be recognized among Dylan's greatest hits:

This has to be an SNL Digital Short, right? Although it hasn't happened yet, at some point, Andy Samberg will jump up from behind a bush in the following video, no?

That's the only explanation behind "Friday," a track released by random artist Rebecca Black. The single went viral over the weekend, soon after it was posted on Comedy Central's Tosh.0 blog. Since then?

It's racked up over five million YouTube hits, despite a lack of impressive vocals, an unknown singer behind autotuned lyrics, a video that makes no sense (why is Black waiting at a bus stop if her friends are picking her up?!?) and words that include how Friday is a great day and how "partying" is "fun, fun, fun."

It's a baffling Internet sensation, it's a product of a Los Angeles-based company called the Ark Music Factory and it's available here for your listening/bewildering pleasure:
