It’s #Friday, and you know what that means: Viral music video star Rebecca Black, whose 16 million-YouTube-hits-and-counting “Friday” has our staff far more obsessed than any group of twentysomethings should ever healthily be with a tween pop song, appeared on Good Morning America to discuss her unexpected celebrity. She seems like a nice, normal girl! And she doesn’t sound like an Auto-Tuned Gorgon when they ask her to sing a few bars of the National Anthem.
Still, the GMA interview is all kinds of strange, what with the interviewer reading her nasty Internet comments about her music and the anchors sagely observing that “Friday” is really bad, but “not the worst song ever.” Also, 4chan is going to rage about Black’s on-air entreaty to Justin Bieber to perform a duet with her. (Hey, she is a 13-year-old girl, after all.)
