Rebecca Black’s song Friday is about to get more ‘thumbs down’ than Justin Bieber’s video Baby, becoming the most disliked clip on YouTube.
Out of its 501,181,239 views, Bieber’s Baby has at the moment got 1,156,096 ‘thumbs down’ compared to Rebecca Black’s 1,156,202 dislikes.
Rebecca Black’s Friday was only released on March 14 and has already been seen by 63,615,127 people, along with an incredible 1 million comments – most of them slating Rebecca and the corny lyrics.
Speaking to the Daily Beast about how she felt about the feedback, Rebecca said:
“Those hurtful comments really shocked me. At times, it feels like I’m being cyber-bullied.”
She also said her record label, LA-based Ark Music Factory, had offered to take the video off the site to protect her, but she had decided to leave the video there.
“I decided not to give the haters the satisfaction that they got me so bad I gave up,” Rebecca said.
And it doesn’t seem Rebecca’s music career is over just yet.
In fact it looks like she could turn her YouTube fame around into something positive.
According to TMZ, the 13-year-old has now signed with music manager Debra Baum, with a bit of help of former American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
Also, Simon Cowell has given Rebecca Black and the song his approval.
Talking to People magazine he said: “I love her [and] the fact that she’s gotten so much publicity. Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I want to meet.”
