Simon Cowell is English, he wouldn't say "gotten" he says "got". Also the stats are wildly out of date. change them!!!

Alexandre8 (talk)09:56, 5 June 2011

What on earth are you wittering on about stats? This isn't Wikipedia, those are the stats as-at date of publication.

Do you make a habit of revising history, or demanding others do such?

Brian McNeil / talk11:25, 5 June 2011

Do you make a habit of defending out of date rubbish, and speaking so rudely to people directly.? I would have happily updated the article had their been the possibility to.

Alexandre8 (talk)18:09, 5 June 2011

Thankfully, the article is locked to prevent people like you trying to rewrite history. History is uneditable, though many politicians and corporations doubtless wish it weren't.

I also find it amusing you can come in screaming demands with umpteen exclamation marks, and then act offended when someone dares to be almost as rude as you.

woah don't be such a fascist. 4

Alexandre8 (talk)23:33, 2 January 2012

Do you even know what a fascist is?

Nevermind. I at least know what a pompous, uninformed, ass is; If you want to know, go look in a mirror.

This is a news site, not an encyclopedia. You don't go "editing" the historical record – which, incidentally, this article is part of. If what thine eye perceives offends thee, then try plucking your eyeball out.

Brian McNeil / talk04:24, 3 January 2012
 
 

Why, yes. Yes, I do speak rudely to people like yourself.

If you're offended you have an off switch for your computer.

108.77.76.211 (talk)22:09, 20 December 2011

Friday...UGH!

REBECCA BLACK'S FRIDAY IS THE BEST SONG IN THE WORLD.

169.204.208.212 (talk)16:55, 10 May 2011

Yeah right.

71.94.49.62 (talk)15:10, 14 June 2011

I've heard 750 billion songs better than this one...I listened for only 22 seconds before I realized that Rebecca Black or whatever cannot sing.

67.142.161.30 (talk)15:30, 14 June 2011

I don't think it's too bad... It's nice. She sings better than some other people. :D

Don't hate Rebecca Black. Love her! <3

Rebecca should not be hated! I think her "Friday" is thoughtful. You'd need a lot of courage and hope to make a song about a day of the week. No matter what those haters say, they will hate but they have made Rebecca and Justin famous. Without haters, Rebecca wouldn't be a viral celebrity. I know that those haters actually like her, and just go with the hate comments. I am a fan of Rebecca, and if you are reading this, be one too! :')

"The song itself has been... criticised for its use of Auto-Tune."

I've always wondered about this. How exactly, other than asking, do you know if an artist is using autotune? I understand that if you pitch shift to extremes it makes things sound very odd but for normal correction of off notes, can it be heard? Can anyone give me an example of a song where you can hear the signs?

194.72.120.131 (talk)10:13, 24 March 2011

The really obvious unhuman shifts in pitch of her voice to better match the songs beat, as well as the robotic sort of tone it gives. You get the impression from watching the video that she's pretty much talking the whole way through, and not singing. They use auto-tune to make it seem like she's singing and has great range.

Sunoco (talk)15:04, 24 March 2011

Vocoder not autotune... and autotune is just 1 autopitching software

Really weird,huh? Rebecca Black is like a Miranda Cosgrove to me.

164.116.47.180 (talk)20:17, 20 May 2011

Who would actually be DUMB enough to listen to the song. But the music video's worse. It's cheap and it doesn't sound like she's singing. Don't listen to this. :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

Why is this news? Why is she getting unwarranted attention when there are thousands of worthy artists on YouTube?

She likes cereal, and has to have it in a bowl.

It's an awful song, I'll give you that. But she's 13. The death threats seem going way too far for what was basically a bit of fun.

μ 22:56, 23 March 2011 (UTC)22:56, 23 March 2011

I couldn't agree with you more on the first part. I never knew the sounds of a moose being humped by a blue whale while being dragged by a car transporter could be interpreted as music, but such is people's taste these days. that I'm probably way behind the young'uns. Her age isn't important; what is, is the fact that she basically couldn't sing for a sweety.

BarkingFish (talk)00:50, 24 March 2011

BarkingFish, a little perspective, maybe? There's a place for criticism, and that is works of actual art. This isn't the end of the world. The chick's right, man, it's terrible the way people felt the need to say hurtful things to her, GIFT in action. I'm not saying you're wrong necessarily, it just hurts me to see people dogpiling on what is basically a little girls attempt to feel special. WHAT A CRIME!

72.224.139.165 (talk)04:46, 24 March 2011

The "crime" is upon the listeners ears, oh gentle IP user. Torture is against the Geneva convention, and this song is clearly a breach of it.

BarkingFish (talk)09:57, 24 March 2011

Who scans YouTube for this stuff???
