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.

Fresno has PLENTY of pretty, available women.    

She's labeled as that 'Friday girl' just like Gary Coleman was always known as 'Arnold'. Just like Lindsay Lohan will always be known as a crack-whore. And Donald Trump is known as a New Yorker. It is what it is. Oh well.

I think this young lady should be proud of her song. It's a catchy little tune that's really caught on whether people love it or hate it. Good for her! I hope she keeps her head up and chases her dreams! I wish the best for her.

Her "music" will join the piles of garbage that become the latest big hits. She will join the ranks of Justin Bieber's "Baby, Baby" and Willow's "Whip My Hair" (or whatever the song is called). We are living in a time when "music" is nothing but bullsh*t on auto-tune.

TMZ, she's a beautiful girl so why did you choose to post such a bad picture? For that matter, why do you always post the worst possible pictures of EVERYONE?

And for those of you who are writing mean and nasty comments about this girl, I have a question for you: "how would you feel if that was YOUR daughter?" Maybe you think she's asking for it and should be able to handle this kind of "criticism" if she wants to be famous, but do keep in mind that she's only THIRTEEN YEARS OLD. Don't act like you wouldn't think that people are heartless monsters if they were saying even HALF the crap about YOUR precious child that you're saying about this girl. What has she done to deserve it? She released one bad song, hardly a reason worthy of hating someone and being so vile towards them. Maybe you think you're somehow helping this girl by being so brutally honest, but you're not and I hope that she succeeds in spite of you people attempting to tear her down and crush her dreams. If you think she doesn't have much of a chance of making it in the music world, you could have told her much more politely and considerately than the rude and ignorant way you chose to. Honesty is one thing, but plain nastiness is another and you're nothing but a bunch of bullies. Shame on you all for being so needlessly cruel to a CHILD. Even if her dream is not very realistic, I admire her for trying to pursue it anyway despite all you naysayers.

Rebecca, if you happen to be reading this, ignore all these people who are putting you down and don't give up. They're probably just jealous because they didn't have the courage to pursue their own dreams so they take delight in trying to ruin someone else's. Give it all that you've got. You may fail in pursuit of your dream, but if you do, don't let it be because of THESE nasty people. Remember, every great person in history had naysayers and succeeded in spite of them, including Albert Einstein whose teachers falsely predicted that he would be a failure. The key is not to let them get to you and just keep doing your thing. It'll either work out in the end or it won't, but either way, at least you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you tried, which is more than a lot of people can honestly say for themselves.

Hey Tay Zonday is awesome! And if she doesn't want to be know as the "Friday Girl", she shouldn't have released such an annoying ass song...she might have had 118 million views, but over 2 million of those views were dislikes, I don't know how that qualifies as a "smash hit." I don't foresee her ever becoming known as a performing artist.....

Rebecca, if you happen to be reading this, DONT ignore all these people who are telling you the truth and just give up. we are not jealous because we have enough sense not to pursue unrealistic dreams so we take delight in trying to talk some sense in to you. Give up now, because you cannot hold a tune (unless you have auto-tune, and even then you still suck). You may fail in pursuit of failing, but if you do (wich you will), let it be a sign that you cannot sing, thanks to these truthful people. Remember, every person in history had naysayers and succeeded in spite of them, except Adolf Hitler whose teachers falsely predicted that he would rule the world. The key is to let them get to you and just stop doing your thing. It'll either not work out in the end or it won't, but either way, at least you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you sucked major, which is more than a lot of people can honestly say for themselves. because the rest of us chose not to fail

So she doesn't "want to be known as the `Friday' girl". She wants to "be known as Rebecca Black..."

What makes her assume she'll be be "known" by anybody AS anybody at all? I'm betting in about 14 more minor-celebrity minutes, NOBODY will remember this faint flash-in-the-pan.

It's going to take a long time, but she'll soon not be "Friday Girl." If she releases a good song, she'll be "that girl who also sang that Friday song," and in 5 years she'll be "who?"
