Rebecca Black wants to go out with Justin Bieber! And she thinks she sounds like Taylor Swift! In case you haven’t heard of Rebecca, she’s popped out of no where in the last two weeks.. Well I can’t say no where, she became an instant sensation on Youtube with her tune “Friday” which has surpassed 63 million views!
On top of that she’s sold over 37,000 copies of her single on iTunes. Yes she has faced some harsh remarks including my daughter who thinks she’s an awful singer but the fact that her song has climbed its way onto the Billboard Top 100 chart and my daughter listens to it all the time and laugh her head off each time proves that she’s doing something very right. Plus Simon Cowell and Lady Gaga have become her instant fans. The 13-year old has also been on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show and now an interview with Teen Vogue.. bad singer or not? Who cares?
Teen Vogue: What artists inspire you?
Rebecca: I mean there some people who have had a little jump start in the business, like Miley Cyrus, but watching Justin Bieber become big when he was so young was insane. I never thought I could be anything like him, and now people are comparing me to him!
T.V:Would you say you’re more like Selena, Miley, or Taylor Swift?
Rebecca: People tell me I sound like Taylor Swift. Once you hear my sound without any adjustments—just my raw voice—it’s unique.
T.V: And who’s your Friday-night dream date?
Rebecca: Justin Bieber.
T.V: What have the last two weeks been like for you?
Rebecca: It’s been an emotional roller coaster. I’ve had my ups and downs, but this experience is unreal—I mean, Nick Jonas sang my song!
T.V: Why do you think so many people have connected with “Friday”?
Rebecca: I honestly couldn’t tell you. I think it’s a typical pop song that a bunch of people could sing. I don’t know what was so special about it that made it go viral.
T.V: What did you first think of the lyrics for the song?
Rebecca: They were simple, but catchy and clean. I thought it could really go big.
