I also think it's important to note that, as the criticisms of Black have gotten meaner and nastier, it's become somewhat natural to want to defend her. When I first discovered the song, obviously I made fun of it. Because obviously it's terrible. But I make fun of b-movies, too. I don't think they're terrible, and I don't get mean and nasty about it. I don't think of ill of Black, never did, and I have no reason to cal, l her names or issue her death threats or anything like that. Making it personal like that, like a lot of people have done, makes a guy like me, who is more from the school of "poking fun" than the school of "mean & nasty", makes me wanna say "hey, now... slow your role, chico!" and stand up for the poor gal. Yes, what's she's made is clearly lacking in serious artistic merit or even basic compositional competence. But that doesn't make her the antichrist or some villain. Besides, it's hardly any more vapid, disposable, repetitive, or uninspired than anything released by Madonna in the last two decades, or by Britney Spears throughout her entire career. In a twisted way, Friday's Disney-esque rejection of the more "mature" elements of modern-day bubblegum pop is a somewhat welcome, nostalgic return to the more clean, sanitized, cute n' cuddly bubblegum pop of yesteryear, when it really WAS bubblegum, pink and sugary and cheap and utterly, utterly disposable. And it somehow feels less processed than the overly clean-cut artists that the aforementioned Disney has actually churned out in the last few years.

I can't believe I just wrote that many words about Rebecca Black.

The people that want to kill her are probably the same people who thing popular music is killing music and that the only good bands are from the 70s. (Note-For the record I like a lot of bands from the 70s, but people who ONLY listen to bands from the 70s kinda annoy me).

And if she was dead I couldn't laugh at her.

I'm still waiting for everybody to just knock it off and admit that you can't get enough of Rebecca Black. WilliamWierd1313 is coming to terms with it. 7 pages worth of discussion cannot be explained away. You love her. Admit it. You will feel better.

I think we have the same sort of affection for Rebecca as we do for any entertainer who gives us an unintended laugh. The song and the video are bad, but in the same entertaining way as many of the movies we so enjoy. And being that she's largely a joke, I find her much less offensive than say, Justin Bieber, who is no better in my opinion, but gets taken seriously.

And I agree that there's nothing wrong with pop music that just tries to be fun. I'd rather have some meaningless, bouncy tune about getting down on Friday than an overwrought piece of crap that tries to be deep and important, or sexualizes teenage girls enough to be almost creepy. Sure, Friday isn't a meaningful work of art, but it doesn't pretend to be.

You should definitely stay away from some of the OTHER music video Ark has been responsible for. ::shudder::

Shady s**t.

Her voice sounds better on the second song but only up to par with whatever trash Disney is pumping out now.

I asked one of our high school volunteers about the reaction to RB in her school and she rolled her eyes.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and bet that she has more fans among the creepy older guy demographic than she does amongst the 15 and under. Just a hunch.
