Rebecca Black is Back

Terrible, Thanks for Asking

Rebecca Black is Back

Ten years ago, Rebecca Black was a 13-year-old girl who made a music video with her friends honoring everyone's favorite day of the week (you know the one).

The music video wasn't great. But it also wasn’t great that the video quickly went viral on YouTube — and that being cruel to a teenage girl suddenly became a professional sport.

A decade after the release of "Friday," Rebecca Black is back to remind everyone that her story doesn't boil down to just one thing she did when she was a teen.
