Did you dig Rebecca Black's new song 'My Moment?'
If so, there's more where that came from.
MTV reports that the teen who found fame with her YouTube hit "Friday" is set to drop her five song-EP next month and just wants fans to know she's serious about her career.
"It's crazy to think [about 'Friday']," she told MTV. "I was really nervous about 'My Moment' coming out because I thought, 'I don't think I'll be able to even beat 'Friday' myself.' "
Black knows it won't be easy, especially considering the very visceral reaction some had towards "Friday." But she said she's determined to make a go of it.
"Again, I wanted people to able to take me seriously because I felt like this would be the right thing to do," she said. "I wanted to start building what could be a really great career, but this industry, it's so unpredictable: You could be the big thing for a month or four months, and then kind of fall off the face of the planet."
I think she becomes popular because of her haters so she must thank them. I read an article that she is back with another video "Person of Interest". Do you think it'll be another hit like Friday?

I really liked the article, and the very cool blog
Roughly about 70% of people are either tone deaf, or have no critical listening skills what so ever. In other words, they listen to what others are saying, and like sheep repeat it. Because, if you go with 70% of what everyone thinks, you can't be wrong right? Wrong. Well, you can be with the "IN" crowd and do what's popular as that is safe. Add this to the fact that most people would rather make themselves feel good by having someone to make fun of, and there you go. People are also a lot like sharks that smell blood in the water. If they think there's food, they all rush over. Like with Rebecca's Friday, it had some clumsy problems with the lyrics, was a "hair dryer" song, had too many effects, and autotune thanks to ARK.
Beyond all of that it was still a very catchy and fun song that was pretty much typical of a hit song. Not the best, but again if not for it's few glitches, was an ok song. But all that led to a popular blogger writing up an article that suggested some people shouldn't write music. This focused more negative energy on friday, and when the ratings dropped, the haters, like sharks, came to visit. The more negative it became, the faster it got worse.
But, then it's on to My Moment. The new song was free of ARK, and also obviously made efforts to avoid burying her voice under auto tune. Finally she could be heard just fine. The only exception was two or three places in the song which put typical filtering effects to make give it a modern sound. Very much similar to what other popular acts might use. However, due to a deep desire on most peoples part to believe she's not singing, they quickly confused it with more autotune. Or were quick to claim it was. Basically the real reason for this exaggeration was to discredit her.
I'm not saying she's Mariah Caraey, or a great singer, but that there was really nothing wrong with how she sang "My Moment". The real issue was that people want to believe the new song is no good. Because what's the fun in hating if it's not that bad? And an exaggerator will quickly claim it's sheet. Because if you say it's complete sheet, and hold her up to some near impossible, golden standard, then of course by comparison it seems believable.
But the reality is that Rebecca Black's singing on her new song is about right in the middle of the current, pop culture's level of talent. If you're not so negative, it sounds pretty good. If she were a different girl, and/or had never recorded Friday first, people might be on a different path. For example, just thinking, oh, she's just a young girl singing. Ok, nice. But now it's like, OH NO, It's Rebecca! Better write something nasty. And some are like on a secret mission, or so they think, to "save" the music industry etc etc. There's nothing she can do, or anyone can do. Or put it this way. There' s nothing from stopping other talented people from also putting out videos. You see, most people say they could do it, or know someone who could do what Rebecca is doing. Fact is, if they really could, they WOULD have. Rebecca is where she's at because of her focus, positivity, dedication, and courage to push her talent ahead. And yes, she does have an average level of talent, especially for a 14 year old. And by average, I mean average within the music industry. Also, how many people are willing to believe in their dream that much, and willing to get off their lazy butts and go out there and believe as in themselves as she does? Not many. After getting only 10,000 haters, most people would pull their video off and cry in their room. But she knew it was a catchy song, and also could see people were buying it. So yeah, Rebecca has guts to fight off what amounts to a bad start and a bunch of haters. I'm not a bit afraid to go against the crowd and admit it.
Oh, great another web site that doesn't post 1/2 the comments.
This is NO surprise. The music industry is controlled by the same people pushing their agenda to dumb-down America and make you into music zombies with no substance. If she really starts to get up there with the likes of Britney and Lady Gaga, we'll see her throwing up the satanic hand signs like all the other music puppets.
anything for a little untalented white girl the good ole american way
just another case for making auto-tune illegal.
It's not really using auto tune. THAT is why her voice sounds vastly different from what it was like in Friday. First it starts with her voice that's far more clear than ever before. It does use some filter effects in the middle and end, but that's to give it a modern sound. But of course haters will claim they can just "hear" the auto tune in it. That's BULL. I work a studio and there is nothing that sounds like she's using that. In fact, people who record the tracks for an album try to avoid auto tune when trying to sound natural because it basically makes the notes very quantized sounding. It's far easier to record the same track AGAIN, or do another take if the singer makes a pitch error. Also the way Rebecca is singing, would not lend itself to a good autotuned session because of the way the notes change. What you just wrote, is a perfect example of people who parrot each other that I was writing about below.
Rebecca, so young, but still alright. I hope everything goes well with her new album 'My Moment'
She really reminds me of a young casey anthony.
George, does that make you feel manly insulting a teenage girl? I expect this from a some women, but not a grown man.
she might be getting rich and famous but it IS NOT from raw talent. there are thousands of talented individuals who don't get their time to shine unfortunately. Yes shes getting a lot of youtube hits and is making $$ but that does not mean she deserves it.
@Andrianna. There are some well known restaurants that the food taste like crap, but people keep buying it. The music business is the same way. If she can sell her product more power to her. She is only 14 years old. What were you doing at 14. Stop hating.
@Adriana, BOO HOO, she doesn't deserve it, boo, SNIFF. Oh please. Give it a rest. First off there is no such thing as a "deserving" committee that sits around and decides these things. But second, what you are doing is whining. If anything you have it BACKWARDS. Rebecca absolutely deserves it because she has enough talent to sing, and then she ALSO IN ADDITION has enough courage, dedication, GUTS and is driven to do what she's doing. She's willing to do this even though there more haters than she deserves. My Moment is a FINE song. Not the best, but it's just fine. It absolutely does NOT deserve the level of hate it's receiving. Rebecca is where she's at because SHE made choices that caused her to be in the position she's now in. SHE DID THAT! It's easy to watch someone and claim it's easy to do, but talk is cheap. So, I'd say she deserves what she has 100% at this point. Also, anyone is allowed to record a video and put it out. It's not like $4000 was a lot anyway. Some new artists spend upwards of a million to get started. Finally, no one puts a gun to someone's head and forces them to watch or listen to her. Rebecca did it, and deserves ever last sale she gets on this.
i hate katy perry for putting this girl in her music video
@Adrianna, so now you hate Katy Perry too.. Just like a true hater would do. Who knows, maybe you should hate the airline pilot that flew the plane with Rebecca in it while she was on her way to do the video. Are you 12? lol.
Only thing good about her is her boobs, playboy when she's old enough!
Another jealous woman. Women always hating.
@mykat18, you sound like a scorn woman who can't get a date hating on a teen.
SHE'S A 14 YEAR OLD GIRL THAT WANTS TO SING, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT??? Give her a chance to "refine" any skills or talents she may have. I think that she's no worse than the Taylors and the Biebers out there. She definitely have charisma, the camera is definitely her friend, she's very pretty (granted, the teeth have to whitened ASAP!), and at least dances better and more than Britney right now. So let's give her a chance as we have done with a lot of other not so good singers in this world (who are millionaires now thanks to us).
Who is she?!
@John Blaster, the song may a be "A piece of crap", but she is banking paper., and you are probably an adult loser. Btw, her new song "My Moment" has charted internationally. It currently has over 17 million views on Youtube. What have you accomplished?
haters are looking foolish. they need to go home. this girl is going to be rich and famous and you haters will continue to be losers.
An old person who listens to Friday and know the lyrics; hating on a teenage girl. I have seen it all. You must be a very lonely old woman Emily.
Bahahahaha!! Awesome. More crap to fake sing to my facebook. "It's Friday! Friday! Get get down for Friday! Everybody's lookin forward to tha weekend!!"
One thing: go to school and get a real job, sister. Cuz this singin stuff isn't workin out for ya! Seriously. I'm old. Make something of yourself. Quit it. Now.
Beat Friday ? That song was a piece of crap and is the most hated song on youtube ! How can she consider it a hit ? Geez !
F U * K all the HATERS !
Get a life n stop hating all u do is bark !! She's makinq $paper$ >.<
People are not laughing at Rebecca, they are laughing at you haters. She is a teenage girl who is pursuing her dreams. Not like some of you haters who are so pathetic. I can understand Youtube because a majority of the postings come from silly teens. But CNN – really? Grow-up people and act like adults and stop hating on a little girl.
@TRACY ARNOLD: you are a dumb@$$ of truly epic proportion. Can't find the CAPS LOCK key? You are almost as phucked up as Ms. Black!
Give it a year or so. She'll drop off the face of the earth and then show up again on an episode of Where are They Now?
CHIILDREN WITH NO LIVES OR LOVE IN IT..SOMETHING WENT WRONG WIT YOU PEOPLE CUZ YOU SIT AND DOG ON THIS GIRL BUT YOU KNOW EVEN IF THE FIRST CD DONT MAKE IT HOW DO YOU KNOW SHE MAY MAKE A SECOND ONE THAT WILL BLOW EVERYONES MIND..SO WITH THAT BEING SAID YOU ALL NEED TO GROW UP AND STOP HATING ON SOMEONE WHOS PROBABLY MAKING MORE MONEY THEN YOU EVER WILL =)
Again, but this time in english pls! Not everyone on here speaks thug!
Her releasing an album is a travesty. It was only a matter of time before such a things happened. I am embarassed to even live in the same city as this girl and even more saddened by the fact that I know her family.
Personally I don't like her music so I won't be buying her album BUT as much I don't understand how people says she has talent at the end of the day to each their own !
Why doesn't this poor girl get that people were laughing a her, not with her and that her fame is solely derived from people thinking her a joke?
I love her so much tel it to the world
Too bad this EP wasn't 6 songs, this way she could give us the other 6 days since she already gave us friday.
Corny or not, homegurl is making money nd enjoying herself. The more you hate, the more money nd fame she gets...
i never paid to hear rebekka black and i do not see myself doing so in the near future BUT Katy Perry makes up a song eerily similar to Blacks "Friday", almost on the same level of irritableness yet Perry pulls it off, Black gets ridiculed for about the same level of stupidity. i say give the kid a break, people are way to harsh on her and give Perry a pass when her Firday song is just about as bad. the crowd is easily manipulated by what is deemed cool or uncool. people have stopped using their brains. so kid o, keep singing and don't listen to the crowd but i probably wont buy your cd for most of the music on todays top 10 is not my style anyways.
CD gonna drop? like manure from a horse's a$$. The sad fact is anyone can make 1 hit song. it's the follow-up that counts. Ms Black, you don't have what it takes. Sorry.
I AGREE WIT YOU @REALITY THEY DONT HAVE ANYTHING SHE DOES OR ANY CHANCE SO THEY HATE ON OTHER PEOPLES DREAMS..THATS SICK...
the ony way this album would fly off the shelves would be if there was an earthquake!
Because there would be a high demand of toilet paper I guess ? lol
Leave her alone! Every generation has their teenie bopper stars,.....nothing wrong with it. Her challenge now is to take the moment and try to build on it. Make a lucraitive career out of her ambition, training, practice and developing talent But heck she's 13-14 and that's still very young to be out there being chewed up by all of the critics in the world.
So leave her alone and let her have fun!!
you haters r pathetic.. Not only is this young teenage girl making money by doing what shes doin' but shes actually PURSUING her dream and doin something about it ... R most of you doin the same?? My guess is probably not if ur reading news about someone u all dislike and wish hurtful things against... Find a life 1st before hating on others for living theirs..
She ripped off a Beatles song. Like literally took a thesauras and used different synonyms. How the f*** are people getting away with this trash?
She ripped off a Beetles song. Like literally took a thesauras and used different synonyms. How the f*** are people getting away with this trash?
All you people keep dogging this girl but you know the reason people dog people like her cuz apparently you wish you had the chance that she does hey if she makes it awesome if she dont then i am sure she will just try harder the next time..where you think all the rest started at the bottom..some there talent comes later in life some born wit it..YOU GO GIRL KEEP ON FIGHTING FOR YOUR DREAM DONT LET THESE HATERS BRING YOU DOWN = )
Deusche bag says what?
Oh my God! This is the cheesiest, most worthless crap I've ever heard in my life. Who wrote the lyrics? A 3 year old?
Saturday comes after Sunday and then Monday comes after that.... Best ringtone ever !
Some of the comments are really stupid and mean . No wonder why the world is going to a bad place . Maybe if you guys had half full glasses you would see the world differently . Bit of advice stop creeping on a Rebecca Black acticle site if you didn't want to hear good music . Go cleanse thyself in a bucket of wholesomeness! Get some class like Miss Black! BACK TO BLACK !
Well put! I like your thinking !
Looks like all you need is auto tune and yellow teeth to be the next big thing....
Fun fun fun fun

It should be an LP, which stands for Lousy Performer.
Doesnt EP mean Extended Play? With 5 tracks-really?
Yes. Extended. Not a single plus b side, though still not an LP.
I see an album by Rebecca Black, it sounded so bad I tried to get my money back. The store clerk was jerk, and return's here just don't work, so I barbecued it till it was charcoal black (spoof of the Rolling Stones hit song)
THE WORLD HAS WAITED FOR YOUR UNIQUE STYLE LONG OVERDO YOUR A CLASS ACT
Yell all you want, she still sounds the same! Why didn't her manager sign her up for some crest whitening strips? Really though, you make a video and sing like your holding a mouth full of baked beans! Guess anyone can call themselves a musician nowadays. Funny, we don't see her playing any instruments? Pls don't respond and say her voice is an instrument, guess again!
HAHAHAHAH "baked beans" hahahahahahah
HEY BusyBee, sounds like your just a little too Busy for what your brain can handle. Also, just so you know, you have no clue what "tone deaf" even means because you totally misused the term up there. Hey, anyone can make a loose point through the magic of being an over exaggerator. That's all you're basically doing, because there is nothing intelligent in your postings what so ever. Also you tried to, ahead of time, squash the notion that she may not be a musician, but a singer. Hate to break it to you, but she sounded just fine on My Moment. But even if we count Friday, guess what? She is allowed to put it out there, and if people buy it, more power to her. If you think it sounds only like baked beans in mouth, then maybe you should buy a can of beans, chew them up and try to sing too? Oh wait, because you know you were full of BEANS when you said that. Yep, LOL. Sounds like BusyBee needs to get to Bed.
SING THAT AWSOME MUSIC ASTOUND YOUR AWAITED FANS
Ella fitgerald is someone to be compared to what an ARTIST! SHES A LEGEND YOU GO REBBECA BLACK were waiting for that GOD GIVEN UNIQUE TALENT BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO ! Your fellow musicians and artist await!
Stop hating people,look at Bieber.
Yeah, let's not go there!
You go Rebecca!! Keep working at your dreams...You CAN sing, You CAN dance and you'll only get better...Don't listen to the haters...listen to your heart! All the best!
She is a once in a lifetime talent who will have a tremendous influence on music for generations. Do not underestimate this woman. She is the next ella fitzgerald.
This post ROCKED!! LOL LOL OMG ROFLMAO LOL
If you're tone deaf and half retarded I'm afraid your comment doesn't count..
Kay, it is an insult to many great music talents to categorize this girl with the likes of someone as impressionable as ella fitzgerald. She is a voice like no other. This is your typical over synthesized crap as a cover up for the fact that she sings like any other typical 14 yr old who's vocal range hasn't matured yet! Her voice is awful, I'm sorry but are all of the members of her record label tone deaf?
Obvious troll is obvious.
Busybee... um... Kay was kidding. It's called sarcasm.
Like she has to be a once in a lifetime talent. You're so catty and sarcastic, lol. I certainly do buy all my music by looking for who is always the once in a life time talent, or best singer, or who has the very best song. If I did, I'd only own about five songs. But I just may buy Rebecca's before I'd buy something from Lady Gaga while dressed in the latest Halloween garb. Then again, I may buy Gaga too as some of her stuff sounds good. But people who are overly picky are annoying. Glad I'm not like that.
Please someone stop the pain
With this crap...what has happened
To pop music? You tube can get u
Heard but it doesn't mean you really
Have what it takes to make
It in the music world.
Fade(away) to Black!
suck your gut you look like an oompa loompa
Is it strange that I like her more than Gaga and think she has more talent? I don't think so.
Looking forward to the new album.. I love the song My Moment.I thought it very inspirational for young people to listen to.
And such a huge improvement,imo..
Best wishes from the US.
I look forward to it too. I'm not expecting it to be Earth shattering, but I like to buy from different artists and after hearing my moment, I think she's going to come out with some pretty good songs.
She needs to fall of the planet like she says. Cause she stinks at singing. I have heard better tunes coming out of my butt.
LOL what an absurd comment. But really, her voice does suck.
More like she needs to fall off the face of the planet because you hope she does. Suuurrre. Like she really cares. Also way to over dramatize. Rebecca, as a teen, has done a pretty good job with my moment. Even as an adult it would be pretty good. But if there's anything I can't stand are other jealous teens, with no life, except to write hateful comments in order to make up for their own problems. Sure no one is perfect, but when someone has to knock someone else down to feel good, THAT's how I know that person has real issues.
She really sounds full of herself in the interview. Wondering if she is great enough to even top herself. What a complete zero.
Even with the mediocre voice, she's made it further than you or me. Who's the zero now? :)
Love the RBlack, she will rock and I'll bet 100 bags of Fritos that she has a top 10 hit in the next 12 months.
She looks like Winnie Cooper with yellow teeth
SPOT ON! But I'd still buy 50 copies of Rebecca's album before I'd buy 1 of Kesha's!
I'd buy 50 copies of Kenny G's greatest hits before I'd buy either one of their albums,,
if it means getting rid of the likes of Kesha and that Lady Gaga thing, I'm buying her disc. It may suck but i hope Friday is on there and she calls her album "It's a Black thing".
I can't wait till her albums released! These are going to be the coolest $15 frisbees ever!!
Hey Mr. 1985 the term "album" is a symbolic one, unless you know how to play catch with a download
oh, wow. Yet another "comedian" trying desperately to get attention.
This thing called Rebecca Black just won't go away. If you ever wondered what happened to the entertinment industry, look no further.
exactly! lets hope she does only have a "moment" lmao and not any longer.
@Boof, Hey Bafoon, I invite you to notice that no one forces yo to listen or open and read the articles. It's like magic! Don't want to drive to the movies? Drive somewhere else. Don't like the Simpsons? Watch a different channel. Don't like working as a janitor? Get a job as a window washer and so on. So basically what you've proven is that there are some people like you where it's not a matter of not liking her music, but want her not to put anything out. That way when you search for her on the internet, she won't pop up, and all because you're so obsessed with her you can't stop looking for her. And now roll in the excuse that she just happened to pop up accidentally in news. Riiiight.
I'd rather run over 1,000 cats and listen to them than hear Rebecca Black sing anything else. Go back under your rock!
@kenny, Nice way to over exaggerate everything. But since her 2nd song was pretty good, I guess you'll need to in order to help you believe in what you're saying.
