Bonnie Says: Stop Bashing Rebecca Black — She's Just As Good A Singer As Katy Perry & Britney Spears!

Mon, March 21, 2011 5:20pm EDT by 61 Comments

Rebecca-haters, please give the poor 13-year-old a break! She’s no worse a singer than Katy Perry, who is challenged outside the studio, and she sure remembers the words of the National Anthem better than Christina Aguilera!

I don’t understand the vitriol being leveled at the Orange County, Calif., native whose song “Friday” has now racked up over 30,050,577 views on YouTube!

Is that jealousy, I hear, from thousands of pop-sensation wannabees?

And if any established pop stars are laughing behind her back, they should ask themselves — could they produce a hit song and video for $2,000?

I say hooray for the Jonas Brothers, who did a good-natured cover of “Friday” on March 20 in LA at the Concert of Hope, and to Simon Cowell who said he thinks her song is “genius.”

Rebecca has said on Twitter: “we’re currently writing another song. It does not have to do with weekdays, or months, or numbers or colors. Throwing that out there.”

Well I say — good for you, Rebecca! Hope your second song is just as big a hit!

I simply hate rebecca black cause her song was on for a whole day non stop at our school….like every 5 minute break we had “Friday” was on it…annoying as hell, besides Rebecca is even trying to make the song catchy unlike Katy Perry and others =/

Anyone who encourages Rebecca Black to make more music should be examined by a neurologist to seek out the tumor lodged in their prefrontal cortex. For those who dont know basic anatomy, the Prefrontal Cortex is the part of the brain that processes information to determine whether something is good or bad. Basically your decision making is impaired. GO GET A CHECK UP!

I totally agree with your article. Whether people like the music or not, this should not become an excuse for a hate campaign against a 13 year old girl. She is an innocent and has the same rights as anyone else.

For those who agree, check out the Facebook campaign ‘Defend Rebecca Black’. No one deserves to be bullied!

Wow, “yeah, yeah,”

Scary post. If you see Rebecca, you will punch her in the face?

It’s. Just. A. Song.

If you are that unoriginal and uncreative as to have to repeat the hatred others have already expressed for the song that they claim they hate because it is uncreative and isn’t Art, at least criticize the song, not the artist/performer.

And if you still feel the need to punch her, or to write such a thing online, that builds a mob mentality of hate toward her, that some crazy may very well act out, it’s time for you to see your school psychology: in a hurry.

There are people trying to embrace her to make her feel better. Oh look honey you really are a star.

People are just acting nice because so many people aren’t liking it.

Don’t give her a big head she’ll make more songs that will be like cats scratching on a chalkboard.

If we all quieted down…she’d go away. *doesn’t say another word*

NO ONE HATES HER. They don’t want to hear her voice. People want to hear GOOD singers END OF FUCKING STORY.

If you rely on autotune to make you sound good and it sounds BAD you have problems. The lyrics? Meaningful? Not at all – to me at least.

The MORE the media makes a big deal of of her the more you’re going to get the same response. People just don’t like the way she sings and they are entitled to their opinion.

Exactly. She sang so bad that it was horrifically funny. As stated most thought it was a parody of the type of music coming out today. I laughed my ass off BEFORE I even knew it was supposed to be serious.

There are jokes coming about Sheen Bi=Winning and his tiger blood. There are going to be jokes about which seat to sit in the car because of her.

I don’t HATE Rebecca. I just don’t want to listen to her music. She should also shouldn’t use autotune people sound better without it IMO.

Bonnie you ignorant, ignorant woman. Katy Perry actually has musical range and CAN sing her songs live well. And i hate to say it, but this girl wouldve been better off being aborted if she couldnt remember that Sunday comes after Fucking Saturday. and how dare you compare her to Christina? Christina had over a hundred million people watching her. I can with a 100% guarantee that you, me, and and millions of people would forget the lyrics on a stage of that magnitude. So please, PLEASE stop your crusade to defend this girl. Her lyrics were absolutely god awful, and her lisp painful to listen to. Im not saying that she couldnt become a very talented artist, but do NOT justify this shit and call it “art” or “music.” this is a fucking generic piece of shit that Ark Music Factory has been spitting out taking advantage of mommy and daddy wanting to make their baby a star. well, it backfired. if she comes out with something better Than “Friday” then ill give her a chance. But I am sick and fucking tired of people being famous for being famous. You have got to make an actual song if you want to be respected.

Okay the thing with Katy Perry and Britney is that they can sing and get music downloads without autotune. Also talking about there out of studio singing, Katy Perry and Britney Spears both are performers meaning they don’t just stand there and sing they actually dance and stuff. I would like to see most people do that and sing perfectly. If you wanna compare anyone to Rebecca Black try Ke$ha seeing as she also uses autotune. Maybe if the song she sang wasn’t so bad people wouldn’t be making fun of her so much. And to clarify why she has so many hits on youtube it’s not due to the fact people are amazed by her talent it is to laugh at the song. I have seen it like 2 times just to laugh at it.

Why do you have to put Christina Aguilera down to make your point? It’s time to forget about that super bowl incident.It was a one time thing- all the other times she performed it perfectly. At least Xtina can sing circles around that little girl.

I do think people are being too harsh on her though. She is only 13, her singing could improve as she gets older.

Oh brother, who takes pop lyrics seriously?

The same people frothing at the mouth over Friday have no issue with “Our House,” or “Party All the Time.”

This is just good old fashioned sexism.

If a grinning girl (who is more intelligent than you and GETS that the lyrics are intentionally silly) sings silly lyrics someone else wrote (because she was only offered two song choices with the $2000), she must take them seriously.

If grown men write and sing “Our house, in the middle of our street. Our house, it is where we used to sleep,” they are presumed to know it is silly and to have a sense of humor.

Double sexist standard!

Stop girl bashing and girl-hating.

That’s what this entire uproar is about.

It reminds me of, and is promoting, gang rape of girls. Literally. This sort of rage directed at a tween girl, on a gigantic scale, is extremely dangerous to every female.

It’s endangering this girl’s life.

Get over yourself.

Get a sense of humor.

And apologize for bashing this girl.

Its called auto-tuning. She sounds like a monotone robot. The reason there are over 30,000,000 views is because people are watching it to make fun of it.

Maybe she isn’t bad but the song was Horiffic! Simon Cowell has shown time and time again he has no idea what he’s talking about, that song was not genius. However, she isn’t a terrible singer but she has lots to improve on.

Rebecca Black cannot sing. She is a teribble singer. But give here props. She has gotten 2 million deaf people to download her song.

Katy Perry is a far better singer

Well Bonnie its high time to get your ears checked because both her voice and the song suck. I’m not a Spears fan but i’d much rather listen to Britney whose songs have more decent lyrics that this atrocity…
