OKAY, there are so many things wrong with this article (Rebecca Black is Not to Blame) that I seriously need to break it down.
WHAT MAKES REBECCA BLACK LOOK EVEN WORSE?!?!?!
Her writer/producer admitting that the song is his fault. Patrice Wilson (the founder of Ark Music Factory… let’s just thank him now for that little gem) is pretty much separating her from her music. Yes, she didn’t write it and thank you Patrice Wilson for being honest.
That’s… 1-Lack of Talent | 0-Rebecca Black
How about Patrice’s solid mission statement for his music factory:
But the children and their parents have to be dedicated to music, not the pursuit of fame, emphasizes Wilson. “I don’t promise anyone fame. In fact, if someone approaches me with their only goal to ‘get famous,’ I tell them they’re not in this for the right reasons.”
Well, that’s very funny coming from the man who gives 13 year-old girls god-awful lyrics, and auto-tunes their voice beyond recognition. Rebecca Black must have approached him, “dedicated to music”…because she writes lyrics, sings with her raw and natural voice, and puts time and effort into her craft.

Getting famous and making money is the business apparently. If Patrice Wilson was actually concerned about producing music for the right reasons, we wouldn’t have recycled tweens pumping out 4 minutes of complete auto-tuning. It really is a disgrace to anyone who has ever struggled to make it, the people who actually flex their creative muscle and lift a finger. I would give Rebecca Black the benefit of the doubt, but Mr. Wilson already said it’s not her fault, she had nothing to do with it.

It is a shame though. If you’re 13, of course fame and publicity are mighty attractive. You’re young…. 13 years young, and have had so little life experience that you might just naively do whatever will please you and your stage-mom. But if you’re willing to throw yourself out there, then you better be willing to face what is coming. Take a note: it’s bad press. You might want to re-think your career before you graduate…. middle school.Yes, times are hard and you really have to think where to go…. to high school? And then four years after that, where to go for college, and then four years after that, what you’ll do for your 21st birthday. Yeah……. in 8 years; so much to think about.

Rebecca Black is to blame. If you decide that you want to make music and be a pop star with a music video, an album with a smash hit second single “LOL”, you need to learn that you become your own business and that you market yourself. If “Friday” is such a bad song, and you are really dedicated to your music, take some ownership since you’re the only one left in this world that is in control. It’s all besides the point of her age and her lack of musical talent; own up. If you’re being cyber-bullied, maybe you should re-think the actions that lead to it.
By the way, be sure to check out the other great articles like, Rebecca Black to Sing About Text Messaging; and who can forget, Rebecca Black: I sound Like Taylor Swift. It’s more than likely that she’ll be in this business now for a good amount of time given her viral edge. Let’s just hope to god she goes through puberty soon and her voice changes.
