Rebecca Black, 13-Year-Old Millionaire?

Who's laughing now? All of Rebecca Black's haters can naysay all they want, but Forbes.com said that Black's song "Friday" has been downloaded over two million times.

Apple's payment agreement decrees that Black will receive .70 cents for every download.  That means she's already earned $1.4 million dollars off the earworm "Friday"!

Apparently, her song is still selling strong, and if you take into account the $20,000 dollars she's made from her YouTube videos, and that's a girl who can definitely buy enough AutoTuners for each of her friends!
(She could probably make that Mercedes convertible seat conundrum a reality by now, too.)

It's just plain...SAD! No talent, the girl can't sing so she has a robot-dubbed voice basically singing the entire "song" for her. Just goes to show...if you don't have any real talent...mommy and daddy's bank account can make your dreams come true!! sigh sigh, sad really

I did not look into this case... but if you have enough views on your videos youtube pays you money. My guess is a lot of people watched the youtube videos.

She had over 30m views for Friday video. Tt's crazy! Sadlt to say, I did contribute to the craziness due to my curiosity.
