Rebecca Black's song "Friday" has taken the internet by storm. And rightfully so, since the Internet loves terrible things (See: the word "fail").
Here's the video
, which has already surpassed 13 million views. But if you don't like subjecting yourself to awfulness, I've pasted some lyrics below:
"It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's looking' forward to the weekend, weekend"
Fun, fun, fun, fun"
"Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
Today is Friday, Friday"
See? The worst. BUT the fact of the matter is that Rebecca Black is only thirteen years old. Who are we to be sitting around in our ivory towers (internet chat rooms) mocking a child? That seems a bit cruel and short-sighted. This girl has already accomplished more by eighth grade than I will in my entire life.
When it comes down to it, Black is nowhere near the first singer to record some truly terrible lyrics. Not even close. And those were done by adults. So let's make fun of them. The singers who have already gone through puberty and should hopefully have the good sense to not spout ridiculousness into a microphone.
