Rebecca Black Dominates Youtube

You probably heard the Rebecca Black song “Friday” last month.  If you didn’t then you should, because it is a wake up call to how terrible pop music can be.  If you’ve ever shunned Ke$ha for not being able to sing, you haven’t heard anything yet.

And this video has been viewed over 100 million times.

To put that in perspective, Rebecca Black pulled in more youtube hits than Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.  Even more shocking, the budget for the song and video was reportedly only $2,000.  Considering the songs Itunes success, the 13 year old likely pulled in a  big ole chunk of change.  Not U2 money of course, but still a ton of money.  I personally hope that the success hinged on people laughing at the song, but, I know that is a false hope.

Her second single is apparently in the works, and it is entitled “LOL.”  That makes me SMH, ROFL, and cry.

God help me when my kid starts listening to all of this. So far, it’s just teen Disney stars and KidzBop. In the meantime, I can ignore it right up until I click on the link provided by my favorite Prophet of Pop.
