Rebecca Black -- I Don't Wanna Be 'Friday Girl'

4/25/2011 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Being forever known as the chick who sings that "Friday" song isn't as fun .... fun ... fun ... fun ... fun ... as it seems ... so says Rebecca Black ... you know, that chick who sings that "Friday" song.

13-year-old Black just gave an interview to the AP -- in which the singer says she desperately wants a career as a respected recording artist ... adding, "I don't want to be known as the `Friday' girl. Hopefully, I can be known as Rebecca Black and not the `Friday' girl."

Black -- whose smash hit has landed more than 118 million views on YouTube -- added, "I want to be a performing artist. That's what I've always wanted to do."

For the record -- Black recently locked down a 5-song album deal ... which means she's already light years ahead of the "Chocolate Rain" guy.

How about posting some sales figures ? Big hits are not gauged on how many youtube hits you get, unless you have an advertising deal with youtube.

As far as a recording star, when someone this lacking in talent gets a record deal, it goes to show you how bad the music business is these days.

no one will even remember this girl a year from now. Apparently she hasn't gotten the hint that people don't like her song and don't think she can sing.

"I want to be a performing artist." The sad thing is that she didn't realize that all those thumbs down on youtube were real. To be a performing artist you have to be an artist first. She can't sing at all and isn't pretty enough to make up for her lack of talent.

I don't want to hear any complaining out of this girl. Everyone should have her problems.

This girl wants to be a serious recording artist, yet she can't sing to save her life. The entire song is auto-tuned (which is designed to improve upon vocal ability). I'm sorry, but if auto-tune can't even make you sound good, then you really are that bad! I swear, hearing "Friday" makes me wish I was half-deaf rather than half-blind.

My suggestion to RB would be...take the ball and run with it as far as you can. Then drop out of the music bizz ( the public has a short memory ) educate yourself and make a come back. Hopefully you'll have enough experience by then to come up with something new that people will want to listen to.

Good Luck

SO WAIT A MINUTE.....Her family paid thousands of dollars to have this little girl who is completely untalented and literally came out of nowhere,to make a song and a video which propelled her into widespread fame and probably made tons of money from it and now she wants to overcome it and WHY? AND DO WHAT? She got what she wanted and probably even moreso than she deserved. This world is such a trip. I have never in my life seen such a ridiculous bunch of nonsense than todays pop culture. Go back to being an ordinary nobody because you are untalented and the only thing that got you known is the publics amusement. Somebody save this young girl from becoming the next Paris Hilton tragedy QUICK.
