YouTube 'Friday' sensation Rebecca Black is back

By Jessica Rae Pulver-Adell,

Rebecca Black has recently released an unanticipated sequel to her YouTube hit video Friday, and it is appropriately entitled Saturday. Black's Saturday already has over three million views on YouTube, along with nearly 70,000 likes and a little over 27,000 dislikes. Black's new music video seems to be geared toward an older audience, playing on satirical stereotypes.

According to NME, Black tweeted: "IT IS HERE. YES. THE OFFICIAL SEQUEL TO FRIDAY. I PRESENT TO YOU, SATURDAY."

After the release of Friday, Black endured unending bullying at the hands of her peers, and her parents elected to withdraw her from school. Online viewers were no better ridiculing black, saying degrading things like "you're so fat and you'll never be pretty," "you suck at singing," "I hope you go die," and "I think you should get an eating disorder because that will make you prettier," according to ABC .

Rebecca Black was 13 when she recorded Friday. Fortunately, Saturday is not receiving anywhere near the critical ire that Friday evoked from viewers. CNET samples a comment from one who is claiming to be Tony Danza, "Meh, not bad I guess. I'd probably sit through it if it came on the radio (after wondering who the hell changed my channel)."
