Rebecca Black will continue to make YouTube videos until her death
Rebecca Black has informed Billboard that she will continue to create videos and post them on YouTube until death prevents her from doing so any longer. Such is her dedication to the medium and confidence in its longevity.
Just in case you’re scratching your head, trying to remember who Rebecca Black is, she’s the girl who was famous for several days last year when the not very good video for her not very good song ‘Friday’ went viral. Created by vanity label Ark Music Factory, the video picked up over 180 million views by the end of 2011. Yeah, her.
With her debut album still in production, Black has continued to promote herself with a series of YouTube videos. Thankfully, they’re mainly behind the scenes clips and Q&As. Asked if she’d continue posting videos to YouTube, she told Billboard on the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards (where she was nominated for Choice Web Star): “For sure. For sure. Until the day I die. Until the day I die”.
Is there an echo in here? Anyway, she was also asked if there were any famous collaborators on her album, which is due to be self-released. “Since it’s my first album, we’re really just starting off and getting the base but maybe next time”, she replied. So that’s a no, then.
