Worst pop song of all time gets 10 mn YouTube hits

Friday, described as "the worst pop song of all time", has become a worldwide sensation, notching up 10 million hits on YouTube and turning its 13-year-old performer into a star.

The Independent reported Friday that Rebecca Black's song, with its robotic vocal delivery, is ei ther a witty parody of saccharine teen-pop or a new low in manufactured song production.

The song Friday is about the California girl's excitement at the impending weekend and became a sensation after she posted it on YouTube last month.

The media report said that the song got 10 million views and now jumped into the official iTunes download chart.

As a matter of fact, Black's name has even "out-trended" the Japanese earthquake on Twitter.

Most of the comments on the songs are not flattering.

Rolling Stone slammed the song's "sub-par production values, grating hooks and extraordinarily stupid lyrics".

The chorus - Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday/ Today is Friday, Friday (Partyin')/ Tomorrow is Saturday/And Sunday comes afterwards - has led to YouTube parodies.

Black is the product of Hollywood company the Ark Music Factory, which charges parents a fee in return for the chance to turn their child into a star.

Rebecca herself is not amused by all the negative comments circulating onthe net. She confessed to The Daily Beast, "Those hurtful comments really shocked me. At times, it feels like I'm being cyberbullied."
