Lady GaGa Calls Rebecca Black a ‘Genius’
Taking time off from her busy schedule of wearing Superman’s house as a dress and shooting sparklers out of her vagina, Lady GaGa has voiced her support for 13-year-old Internet sensation Rebecca Black, according to Popeater:
“I say Rebecca Black is a genius and that anybody telling her she’s cheesy is full of s**t.”
Countless critics have panned ‘Friday,’ penned by Ark Music Factory, calling it everything from the “worst song ever” to “the most appalling thing on the Internet,” leaving Black feeling “cyber-bullied.”
Gaga, who has been outspoken in her anti-bullying efforts, admitting that she herself was bullied at school, said of the dangers of our highly critical and tech-savvy culture, “I, too, am a child of the dot-com era… That’s the thing about fame that is difficult because if you screw up … Google. It’s there.”
I’ve pretty much ignored the entire Rebecca Black phenomenon, but based on my limited understanding, I don’t think people are truly as mad at Rebecca, who’s just a young girl accepting an ill-advised opportunity, as they are at the music industry for shitting out another entirely manufactured product and calling it music. Now, I know that sentence almost sounds like they’re pissed at Lady Gaga who’s supposed to be the “artist” defending her here, so just to be clear, I also meant Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry and those Asian kids who sing about getting “slizzard” because I like to pretend I’m Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino. *cocks gun* Now get off my yard.
