** I don't think anyone really hates her. Everyone I met (including myself) really enjoy the video - [[SoBadItsGood just not for the reasons she expected.]] Nobody hates [Film/[TheRoom Tommy Wiseau]] or Creator/EdWood either - they've just created something so hilariously bad it wraps right around back to awesome and we love them for it.

Headscratchers =/= random complaints.
* Why do people actually LIKE that song?

* Ok, so not ''totally'' related, but how come Friday became a meme for its [[SoBadItsGood So Bad Its Good-ness]], horrible lyrics, crummy video and such, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unDB3y1jW1U THIS]] didn't for the same reasons? I mean, Kiely Williams is an ''ex-cheetah-girl''! Spectacular really should('ve) be(en) a meme. ** Because Friday is SoBadItsGood, but that is just bad. Friday has a poorly made video and enough auto-tone to kill a small village. Spectacular's video actually looks professional and Williams's voice isn't bad. But what really did it for Friday is the lyrics. They're trying to be serious lyrics, but they're impossible to take seriously. Spectacular's lyrics aren't good either, but you can still take them seriously. What it all comes down to is that Spectacular is just a bad song, and there are plenty of bad songs out there so it's nothing special. But Friday stands out from the other songs because it's [[SoBadItsGood so bad it's funny]]. It just can't be taken seriously at all. *** How ''do'' you take lyrics like "Said he was built like a stallion, and the man wasn't lying" "I think he pulled a track out, when he was blowing my back out" "Last I remember I was face down, ass up, clothes off, broke off, dozed off. Even though I'm not sure of his name he could get it again if he wanted" "I hope he used a rubber, Or I'mma be in trouble. Problem is I don't remember, cept' for rollin' over" '''''SERIOUSLY''''' ?? And "Spectacular" is far from a professional video... if you want a professional video (or good music, for that matter), just go watch [[LadyGaga Lady Gaga]]. But I suppose it really does come down to {{YMMV}} on whether Spectacular is [[SoBadItsGood So Bad It's Good]] or So Bad It's Horrible. **** Definitely So Bad, It's Horrible. It felt like such an obvious "I'm not a Disney good girl!" act and failed ''spectacularly'' to the point where Williams went on Youtube to apologize for it. Never mind that she wasn't exactly squeaky clean before Cheetah Girls. **** ''Spectacular'' is just plain disgusting, is what the problem is. Much like HogwartsExposed, instead of having its obscenity wrapping around to hilarity, instead all it was was a bunch of forced "edgy" themes. It's a song about a woman getting so wasted she has unprotected sex with a stranger, and because that sex was so "spectacular", she'll happily do it again. Contrast the just plain dull vapidity of ''Friday''... **** Comparing the two videos, "Friday" looks pretty amateur-ish with its [[WraparoundBackground wraparound backgrounds]] and especially when Rebecca's friends are obviously not actually driving the cars. "Spectacular" doesn't have a great video, but it looked like it at least looked like it was above a high school level. As for the lyrics, "Friday's" are bad in a silly sort of way, but "Spectacular's" just sound poorly written. And I guess that upbeat pop songs make better memes than whatever "Spectacular" is. ** There is no reason for why certain things become memes and others don't. You may as well ask "What's the logic behind using RickAstley as a tool for trolling?" ** Well, THIS song became viral because it is, by almost anyone's standards, so obviously, aggressively bad. But on that note, I similarly don't understand how this song got so much attention while Jenna Rose's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DwT_2QQU64 My Jeans]]'' slipped under the radar (I mean, not completely, most of us have heard of it by now, but it really didn't attain the memetic status of ''Friday''). It's got everything ''Friday'' has - idiotic subject matter, vapid lyrics, retarded music video, Autotune for ''everything'', a young girl being robbed of a normal childhood so some tool can make money doing the singing...why didn't it get the attention ''Friday'' did? *** Is My Jeans for real? It looks like an intentional parody of Friday. That might just be PoesLaw at work, though. *** Apparently My Jeans came out before Friday did. Oh dear.

* Why? ** Why not? If Rebecca Black wants to make a stupid music video, she has the right to. *** It is a basic human right to make a terrible music video. This has been acknowledged in Rebecca Black's Rights of the People of the Sovereign Nation of [[{{Egopolis}} Rebeccatopia]], and nowhere else. In Rebeccatopia, there are no weeks. Only weekends. *** ...can we declare all-out war on Rebeccatopia?

* Is Rebecca Black supposed to be the next Music/JustinBieber once his career starts plummeting down the drain? If so, will this pattern continue once her career starts coming to a finish and they have to look for another untalented singer in the music industry for the world to mock? (For the record I hate her song, but I'm not an angry basher since it's not partially her fault for the song).

* I know she didn't write the lyrics, so how come they made her ditch school within a minute of the song just to hang out with her friends, who are also apparently ditching school. I thought she had to "catch her bus" but then she changes her mind once she "sees her friends"? Talk about {{Moral Dissonance}}.
