Not a whole lot going on in Rebecca Black Land; she’s back from vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, and while everyone waits on that EP, she’s set up her own YouTube channel (which, “Friday” being still in dispute, is quite empty for now), and she’s taking questions at a Buzznet blog.
Meanwhile, I scooped this out of her Facebook fan page:
“Going into the studio has been amazing. I just want to prove to everyone I can do it. I’m not some rich kid whose parents paid for her to have success. That’s not me. I want to be a real artist with a real career. The record is coming out so cool. I’m doing a ballad, a dance song with a little bit of a Latin flair to it. And, the lyrics will be a little more challenging. It’ll sound completely different from ‘Friday’ because there’s not a crap load of auto tune in my voice,” laughs Rebecca.
Of course, there were a few people — enough to get it to #58 in Billboard, anyway — who actually liked “Friday.”
“What would befall her if she doesn’t have cereal? She says she has to have it, but that suggests consequences if she doesn’t. Why not a PopTart?”
“It doesn’t fit the lyrics.”
“Anything fits. ‘Bagel, bagel, gotta have my cream cheese.'”
Don’t ask what the young lady formerly known as Gnat had for breakfast.
