How this is any different than Kesha, though, or any other successful pop singers, is a mystery to me. This seems just as bad as much of the music that's popular right now. I guess what's slightly different about it is that it's targeted towards kids, but hey, even Lady Gaga was in that new Karate Kid movie, so that really doesn't distinguish it.
To both of you. This is a huge point, huge! And well spotted too! Why does this song get so badly bashed for being so bad, while other mainstream songs that are absolute and complete trash get praised to no end?! There are songs out there with worse lyrics, worse sound, and a worse message (wow that wording sounded weird) out there that gets a huge amount of praise. And yet this gets absolutely torn apart. Those people are professional singers in their 20s and 30s, they can handle criticism. This however is a 14 year old girl, and it's far crueler to her.I have to agree with Hanyou and others who point out how it sounds like the rest of modern pop. It's hypocritical of the media to embrace Gaga, Ke$ha, Eminem and Kanye when they, in my opinion, are just as bad as Ms. Black here.
This song is downright awful. How does a person make something suck this badly? I guess if you work on a modern children's TV show...
And to both of you. All Rebecca did was sing and act in the video. Nothing else. She did not write the lyrics. She didn't have any say on how the music video went, she had nothing to do with producing it. That was all the work of Ark Studios, which really makes a lot of horrible music videos anyway.Also, who thought of these lyrics? They're genius! Yesterday was Thursday, Tomorrow is Saturday? She must be a lyric god, because I couldn't find a rhyme with "day" in my life!
I really don't understand why people think it's so horrible. I don't exactly like it. But it's not supposed to be that good anyway, it's an amateur song and it's wrong to judge an amateur song by professional song standards. To put it in perspective, that's like trying to judge college football (American) by NFL standards. It's just absurd. You wouldn't be so harsh if it were a friend or family member singing a song like that.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon did a cover as well... I found it quite hilarious.
