Rebecca Black has received lots of press for her infamous song Friday, which has been considered one of the worst songs ever written. The interesting thing is that the young singer didn’t even write that song. Are you that surprised?

People talk so much about how silly or stupid the lyrics are, but pop songs, they’re meant to be catchy and to tell things in a simple kind of way. I feel bad that Rebecca has been getting so many people criticizing the song. Because it was me that wrote it.”

Wilson is actually upset that Rebecca Black is getting such a negative reaction to his simple song Friday. For Ark Music, he charges children and their parents $2,000 to $4,000 to help them fulfill their aspirations of becoming pop stars.

Whatever you actually think about Rebecca Black and Friday, there is no doubt that it has gotten the attention of the nation. It comes down to the fact that no matter if people hate the song, it is certainly getting a lot of play. Black has made several thousands from this song, which may be the worst song ever. So, is hate the new love? It just may be in pop music. Check out the official video below.
