Tomorrow is Saturday

And Sunday comes afterwards, so there’s no better time to squeeze in a Rebecca Black update, right?

Three million viewers have looked at the “official video” for “Prom Night,” allegedly the follow-up single to “Friday.” By YouTube’s count, dislikes are outpacing likes by fourteen to one, a ratio not even “Friday” can touch.

Anyway, it’s bad enough that Rebecca Black herself felt compelled to denounce it as a “poser song” which she had nothing to do with. There exists a rumor that the version of “Prom Night” going around was Ark Music Factory’s demo, allegedly offered to her, but she turned it down. I’m not buying that tale either.

    Listen to you with your finger on the pulse of Youth Culture.

    It’s a very long finger; I am very far removed from youth culture.

    Actually, when something crosses my screen billed as Worst. Song. Ever — which this did — I have to check its papers. And when I discovered that it wasn’t any dumber than some of the stuff I cherish from my teenage years, I felt somehow compelled to defend it.

    (And there’s this: 130 million people have seen her video. Maybe fifty thousand were sufficiently moved to spend a buck for the single, enough to get it halfway up the chart. I did in fact ante up for my copy.)
