1. The way she has a frowny pooping sun written on the Thursday page of her planner

Sheneneh et Caro (Stevie D(eux)), Sunday, 13 March 2011 02:25 (six years ago) Permalink

2. and that she then wrote "Hooray!" on Friday

3. she picked a very nice note to sing and was v wise in not straying far from it

4. "with chicken on it, on everybody's Russian"

Sheneneh et Caro (Stevie D(eux)), Sunday, 13 March 2011 02:26 (six years ago) Permalink

5. the redundancy of "Gotta get down to the bus stop" followed immediately by "gotta catch the bus". Like, what else would you possibly do at the bus stop?

6. ...except for FRIENDS ROLLIN UP!!! Which seat is she gonna take??!?

7. Why the fuck are you standing up in the back of a car that is driving down the highway? I can't even.

8. FYI when today is Friday, tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes afterwards.

10. TGI Friday's marketing ppl, did you hear this?>?

11. there's this moment around 2:53 that makes me feel like Kristen Bell and NatPo fucked and then had a baby and that baby grew up and then fucked the Bird Lady from KitH and then that baby reached adolescence, and then made this music video.

15. how obnoxiously she enunciates the "r" sound in "partying"

Sheneneh et Caro (Stevie D(eux)), Sunday, 13 March 2011 02:50 (six years ago) Permalink

16. featured rapper going "R! B! REBECCA BLACK!"

I do feel a bit sorry for this girl, possibly.

So certain it was a (solid) parody that I was ready to mock people who fell for it, but after reading about the guys behind it I'm stunned. Still, I'm sure someone is taking the piss at some level, even if they do it in a cynical money-grabbing way.

It's easy to imagine she's singing about fried egg.

19. The rapper's smugface at 3:25

I'm surprised it took so long for a business like this to spring up. When people are dropping $300k on a party or $150k on a car for their little cherubs, getting them to fork out a few grand for a music video seems like a potentially profitable venture. Ultimately, it's just an updated, super-rich, version of the customised books you got when you were ten that had your name / photo in the story.

Of course, you could argue that a few of the legit pop stars around at the moment didn't have a particularly different route to fame.

20. Underage driving

BLOOMPS 2012 (rip van wanko), Sunday, 13 March 2011 14:18 (six years ago) Permalink

There does come a point when it's slightly creepy. 2:25 is solid gold though.

ShariVari, Sunday, 13 March 2011 14:19 (six years ago) Permalink

Yeah, kinda struggling to find a meaningful, useful difference between these and, e.g., Ke$ha, who is equally as retarded and equally manufactured but doesn't have the excuse of age or ambitious stage parents. It's razor-thin line between "Wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy" and "Hannah Montana is wearing my jeans."

21. Not wearing seatbelts because it could get in the way of "FUN FUN FUN".

22. Shading the girl on her left by singing "my friend is by my right".

23. The puzzling omission of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

When I first saw this I thought 'it's like some totally regular and unremarkable kid got a wish granted somehow to be a pop video artist' and...I was right.

Buff Orpington (Abbbottt), Sunday, 13 March 2011 17:03 (six years ago) Permalink

24. the first few comments (pre-"fame") on the video from users that COINCIDENTALLY joined youtube the same day this video was posted, including:

"Song is fun, very upbeat and age appropriate. Catchy tune. Singer has a powerful voice with great range. Harmonies show off her ability. She demonstrates great confidence."

"I like this video and this song! Hey, who doesn't look forward to Friday and the weekend? These kids have it right. And she can hit some diva notes!"

teledyldonix, Sunday, 13 March 2011 18:09 (six years ago) Permalink

I haven't posted in--literally--ages, but as soon as I sat down and properly watched this I had to come see what ILX had to say about it.

I really love the rap feature. "Tina? You know a black dude, right?" "Uh. Yeah, Rebecca. Why...?"

Andrew Kornfan, Sunday, 13 March 2011 18:17 (six years ago) Permalink

Maybe this is a stretch, but this whole idea seems like an outgrowth of the fact that the rich in the U.S. have gotten so much richer. The top 1% has more money than they know what to do with so they pay $50k or whatever something like this costs to have their kids be pop stars. Within a day or two this will have a million views. Crazy times.

Rebecca Black's new single "The Great Divide" is quickly moving up the Billboard Dance Charts. This song can be read in so many ways but it certainly resonates deeply at this moment in time, talking as it does about the division and separation we are all feeling and experiencing. But this purposeful pop song strikes a hopeful note too, showing that you can find your strength in times of turmoil.

...and a cover of "Starboy," indeed.
