Rebecca Black now more disliked than Justin Bieber on YouTube

13 year old Rebecca Black’s so-awesomely-bad-it’s-good video on YouTube has gotten over 66 million views and 1.2 million dislike’s, thus eclipsing Justin Bieber for dislikes. This in just a few weeks too.

She should be happy. I call it the Alice Cooper effect. Early in their career when they were unknowns, Alice Cooper did a gig and reputedly the entire audience walked out, to which Alice said, “I think we got something here.”

I saw this happen at a Rolling Stones concert where a complete unknown opening act got booed off the stage. People were literally taking off their shoes and throwing them at him. I thought at the time, anyone who can piss off an audience that much is going to be a big star. His name was Prince.

Hang in there Rebecca, you could go far.


  1. Rebecca, Justin Who?

    I went to an Alice Cooper concert. ’73 – I was just out of the Army. With a Bunch of Deadheads. We ate a bunch of Acid. He hung himself. Really. The safety harness broke.

    It was… hilarious. In a weird sort of way.

    Music sucked.

  2. That’s diffrent though. Those brilliant artist (Prince/Alex Cooper) were the subject of animosity because they were diffrent & slightly ahead of their time, Rebecca Black on the other hand is
    the product of an pop established gimmick (auto-tune) that is so beyond chessy. She’s worse than Kesha! Comparing her to Prince & Alice Cooper is just laughable; she puts absolutely nothing into her music/career (which is based on one song). No one should be antagonistic towards her though she’s just an overblown youtube trend…
