    It's okay...

    It's a little too Highschool Musical sounding for me.

    Vacuous, autotuned, manufactured, nothingness. Right down to the leather jacket makeover with thrashing guitarist backing (despite the song being synths). It's a reach to call it music.

    You're right that the hate comments at her are too much. They should be directed at the manufactured pop producers who cynically put her through this.

    No kidding, a lot of them were death threats and stuff of the like.
    I wont lie though, some of the comments on this video are funny though.

    "It looks like Rebecca decided to sit in the back at 2:38"

    Keyboard warriors and their harshness.

    I love how there are a bunch of other "official" versions of that video linked to in the Suggestions.

    I too noticed the guitarist lol. I don't like this song but its better than her last one. Its just too preteen-ish.

    And yes, the hate threats are insane. She's a teenager who didn't hurt anyone (unless someone was actually hurt by "Friday" :p)

    While I do agree that it is just generic pop garbage.

    I don't see anything bad with what the producers are putting her through. Being rich and famous? I'd have my voice heavily synthesized in some generic pop crap to have tasteless people throwing money at me.

    She might just as well, IMO.

    Her voice will change anyway, as she continues to grow, and loses her baby fat.

    </meow> :p

    Geesh... She's just a kid -- give her a break. Personally, I find listening to music critic wanna-bes to be far more annoying than Black's songs...

    Yeah, I gotta agree - the crazy hate she's seen is too much, even though the generic pop is pretty awful.

    Too awful for words but Andy hit the nail on the head. (I assume it's the same vid that made the rounds recently, since that one has been blocked)

    I find it interesting that she's managed to get to this position without an ounce of talent, though.

    The world needs to stop hating on this girl. Yes, she may not be the best, but hey, she's getting paid big bucks at least. Let the rage/hate fill her pockets with money.
