The curious phrase PREPARE FOR LAUNCH showed up on Rebecca Black’s Facebook page, along with yesterday’s date. Since it wasn’t a Tuesday, I have to assume it wasn’t the release of the new EP, which, Team Rebecca insists, will come out this month. (Facelift for the Web site, apparently.)
Speaking of dates, she told Parade she’s allowed such things:
I’m allowed to. I mean, I’m sure if my dad was in the room he’d be like “Uh, no you’re not.” But I’m allowed to. It’s hard because I’m always in L.A. and I’m always busy. So I’m single, but I kind of like it.
Fourteen and single. Who would have known?
I spent part of last night reading her Tumblr page, which seems to have attracted a few unwelcome elements. No surprise there, I suppose. Still, she seems to be taking it all in stride, which is more than I could do at that age.
And then there was this on Yahoo! Answers:
Does anyone know where I can get the music to Friday by Rebecca Black for a marching band?
I need it for the basic marching band instruments, clarinets, flutes, saxophones, tubas, baritones, trumpets, horns, percussion, etc.
Let’s hope somebody YouTubes (TheyTubes?) the performance.
Addendum: Doonesbury weighs in. (Via Peter J. Rudy.)
