Rebecca Black

Yanked Out of School

After CONSTANT Harassment

8/10/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rebecca Black Friday
Rebecca Black was getting made fun of at school SO MUCH after "Friday" came out -- that her mother decided to pull her out and began homeschooling the singer.  

Black just told ABC News ... students were constantly targeting her, explaining, "When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice ... Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'"

Black's mom told ABC the move will also help the 14-year-old focus on her career.

By career does she mean 15 minutes of fame? Because that ended over a month ago already.

She wanted fame. Well, Welcome to it.
You are popular now! Just for the wrong reasons.
Deal with it!

WHAT is wrong with parents today? Do they all have stars in their eyes?
This poor thing can hardly sing, she has very little talent to begin with. Certainly not a natural, but, yet, her Mother thinks this is going to be some kind of career?! She is cute as a button, but, a singer, a serious singer? No.


She is 14!! She needs to be in school, she needs to see how the world works, how to judge people, whether or not you can trust them, how to work out problems with friends, how to learn to be responsible. Go to the mall, have boyfriends, or sleepovers...

So much of that is a learning process in school. Home schooling? As if Mom is a teacher now? Come on, this is ridiculous.

NOTHING good ever comes out of attempting to be a star, just what if, and you end up one? No thanks, the money might be nice, but goodbye freedom.

This is what she wants for her daughter? I think Mom and dad need a reality check.

If I were her I would just say, "wow - did you come up with that all by yourself?" and walk away. People are being harrased a lot more than that every day. They just don't have fame to back them up.

AHAHAHHAHAHAAHHHAAHHAHA! stupid b*tch. How come we have to listen to the same crappy songs over and over again on the radio but she get's pissed when she hears her own song a few times in a day. I call it "overnight success karma".

I'm reading things like "kids can be so mean" - what are you basing this on in this story?! That they asked her "hey, what day is it?" Yeah, wow, that is SO CRUEL.

No surprise there. It's easy to say "grow a thicker skin" but when you're young and in school "mean girls" like that can make your life a living Hell. The world at large often rewards mediocrity, especially in middle and high school. Be smart but don't be too smart because then you'll be a "nerd." Be talented but don't be too talented because then you'll be a "beeyotch." Even with the little, admittedly minor success Rebecca had, of course there were some mean, small, jealous little things who couldn't deal with someone else getting their fifteen minutes. I personally know another girl who has a killer voice and was working with big-time pro people like David Foster when she was just 13. She was the sweetest girl you can imagine and she kept her success on the d/l because she had been tormented so much because of it in another school she had to move out of state. Good luck, Rebecca. I hate your song but nobody deserves that, especially for being successful.
