Rebecca Black Already A Millionaire — In Less Than A Week!

Tue, March 22, 2011 2:35pm EDT by 21 Comments

Rebecca’s ‘Friday’ has already earned the singer over a million dollars based on downloads — is every girl going to start making a music video for $2,000?

Once again, Rebecca Black is having the last laugh! The singer, whose song “Friday” became a viral sensation in just a matter of days, has incurred over 2 million downloads which, at the iTunes payout rate of $ .70 a single, has earned the singer roughly $1.4 million. Looks like Rebecca isn’t feeling so maligned and ridiculed now!

That’s not all either. The $2,000 Rebecca’s mom shelled out for the video is the only cost that has been incurred, with no marketing, advertising or touring budget to worry about.

Ark Music Factory also stands to profit with Rebecca on the YouTube end. As Forbes reports, “the site makes about $1 per thousand page views. For videos running ads as part of the revenue sharing program, that revenue is then split between YouTube and the content creator. Content creators, or partners, take 68% of the profit. At 30,000,000 views, that lands Black and Ark Music Factory $20,000 – a 1000% return on investment.” Rebecca may just be, percentage wise, one of the most profitable acts ever.

One thing is for sure — there are going to be a lot of teenage girls asking for their own song and music video!

Rebecca better get busy penning that next song!

So what do you think HollywoodLifers — did Rebecca earn her money or is this a joke?

2 million downloads, would net 1.4mil, but she would have to split with songwriters, producers, and record label, which would have left approx her 200,000. But according to soundscan as of beginning for last week, she has sold 37,000 downloads. Grossing her approx 4000 bucks, Far cry from a millionaire. If anything her parents double their money. Nice short term turn around.

I totally support this girl! I am not a jealous adult who hates on children! It’s not my favorite song nor do I even think it’s good but man, the girl has integrity and an apparent zest for life which most of you walking dead don’t.

Good luck with your sad, pathetic lives and feel free to rant in return ALL YOU WANT, I’m never coming back here because in a few seconds, I’ll be moving on my life!

Bye, simpletons!

This cunt shouldn’t be allowed to OWN a computer, much less be visible on one. People should be ashamed of themselves for making this shit popular. Seriously. But they won’t be, because we are a shitty society with no regard for actual goddamn talent anymore.

Can 2012 get here sooner? This planet needs to explode.

I could literally take a poop, tell it to sing, and it would be better than the crap I heard her sing on YouTube.

OMG…western civilization is doomed.

what did she do to deserve this? she made a terrible song and people thought it was hilarious. whether people think its amazing or terribly horrible people still watched it and bought the song.
Its her money that she rightfully earned. just because the music isn’t amazing doesn’t mean that she doesn’t deserve it.
screw japan, she should keep her money.
