On Rebecca Black


Iconic as the creator of the ‘worst music produced in history’, Rebecca Black’s feat is frowned upon. She is vindicated for her poor singing. Her mother paid $4K to help her pursue her dreams only to have Rebecca rejected by the standards of society.

163 million views on youtube. That number is slightly over a third of the US population.

I’m not a pop music person; I’m a game theorist. Let’s not prematurely bash her. I’ll demonstrate why Rebecca’s method is insanely clever and effective in helping her become the next top star.

I would like to comment that very few people in Hollywood can sing. The ‘image’ is what’s important in pop culture. Pop culture moves in a powerful torrent, and before anyone could analyze the trend, it changes. People remember ‘images’, not the value of the voice. Rebecca Bleck will fit right in.

Popularity is the most difficult step in reaching stardom. Rebecca Black got there in one step. People that can sing so much better but are less popular lack the conforming approval of society before they are recognized globally. Rebecca Black is already famous albeit her first song needs some work.

Now that she has the attention, she could do more things. Rebecca did a concert with Katy Perry, chatted with producers, and came out with new music videos.

This ‘horrendous’ music video is perfect in several ways. First of all, youtube is so massive, no one gives a blink to bad videos. Her ‘Friday’ video captures attention and gives something people to conform about.

Should she have made a better video? No. In Hollywood, quantity is more important than quality. Therefore, she will go far as a pop star.

You may dislike her now, but she is somebody people talk about. In the pop culture field, stand out.

But in any other aspect of life, you should outstand.
