There are major downsides to being an internet celebrity. Despite being one of the most-discussed people on the internet for 2011, Rebecca Black’s not exactly popular at her California school — so much so that she is now getting home-schooled.
Speaking in a new interview with ABC News, Black claims that bullying in surprisingly the reason for the 14-year old’s transition:
“When I walk by they’ll start singing ‘Friday’ in a really nasally voice … Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'”
Of course, while all of these bullies continue doing their thing, Rebecca is going to keep raking in all of the money and publicity that comes with her new-found fame. Her newest video for “My Moment” has already 22 million views on YouTube, and she is going to be one of the guests on “America’s Got Talent” Wednesday.
Do you think being home-schooled is the best move for Rebecca at this point?
