Precious snowflake realizes it’s hot in the oven: Rebecca Black reacts to getting critical remarks about “Friday.”
“Those hurtful comments really shocked me,” Black said yesterday in her first interview since the song came to dominate a certain quadrant of popular culture and crack the iTunes Top 100 singles chart this week, besting the likes of Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. “At times, it feels like I’m being cyberbullied.”
Welcome to the internets; enjoy your stay. The article at the Daily Beast digs up a “pop-music critic and sociology professor at California State University, Long Beach” who tells us why we don’t like the song:
”’Friday' embodies any number of current trends practically guaranteed to inspire a set of backlashes,” he said. Among them: “music for teens, anemic dance tracks, Auto-Tuned vocals, super-trite songwriting and most of all, a resentment towards young people whose presence seems to disproportionately dominate social media.”
That’s it! Resentment towards young people and all their disproportionate domination! That’s what annoys us more than the song itself.
You’ve probably heard this, but I’ve looked for better parodies, and can’t find one.
