She’s hoping to prove to the world she’s a star by recording a hot new record!

Rebecca Black may have started her career as a punchline when “Friday” became a viral sensation, but this entrepreneurial 13-year-old is running with her fame and releasing a new record to prove all of her haters wrong!

Rebecca says her biggest goal is to show the public she really does have a voice that could make her a star.

“People think I sound like a robot, and in [‘Friday’], I do sound like a robot,” Rebecca tells the Associated Press. “I don’t want to be known as the ‘Friday’ girl. Hopefully, I can be known as Rebecca Black and not the ‘Friday’ girl. I want to be a performing artist. That’s what I’ve always wanted to do.”

Her ambition to make a new record is exactly what kept her going through the trying time when internet haters first started to mock her. Even when it seemed like the whole world was making fun of her, Rebecca says she had “only [an] hour of tears,” and people teasing her in her youth is what has made her strong.

“I was bullied all the time in school,” Rebecca says. “I don’t know what was so different about me that made people want to pick on me. I thank those people because if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here right now. I would probably still be sitting at home crying. I’ve dealt with that my whole life. I’ve learned to have a thick skin. I laugh at them now.”

Rebecca hopes her upcoming record will be a good opportunity for fans and haters new and old to reassess her and her talent.

“I want to see everyone’s opinion of my actual voice,” she says. “I don’t care if they love it. I don’t care if they hate it. Well, I’d like it if they loved it, but I just want to hear their opinion.”

One thing is for certain — Rebecca has definitely crossed over from an average kid to an international sensation.

“I’m definitely not some normal 13-year-old girl that barely anyone knows around school anymore,” she says.

We can’t wait to hear her new material!
