It's Not Just Rebecca Black…There's More Of Them!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSad SadPerezTVEvents

What did you think of Rebecca Black's brand new hit Friday? Did you think it was awesome? Or awesomely bad?

As we said before, Rebecca looks like a sweet girl, and she looks like she's genuinely having fun in her music video…but it's a little troubling that a record label would throw SO MUCH money at her.

Check out the video (above) to see highlights from the launch party for her record label, Ark Music Factory.

It seems like these kids are getting exploited, and there's something kind of sad about that.

On the one hand, we think it's great that Rebecca and others are getting the opportunity to pursue their dreams, and let's be honest…Rebecca is getting A LOT of attention right now, but is this the type of attention she wants to be getting?

How do U feel about Ark Music Factory? Do U think they're supporting these kids? Or exploiting them?

    not just exploiting them but basically fucking up the already messed up state of the music industry.
    i see VERY minimal support for her here.



  2. 2

    Ew.
    Although that last guy was actually not bad. The rest of them were atrocious. I wish Rebecca Black was in this video though. lol



  3. 3

    Oh my god.
    Why?!?!?!?!

    from some one who works in the music industry. it happens. artists and also people behind the scenes get taken advantage of all the time. she wants her dream to come true. so they are giving it to her. remember always get a lawyer to check over stuff. people in power can do what they want and usually get away with it

    I hate to sound like a bitch but…None of them have tallent. I looked at all of their produced youtube videos before coming to that conclusion. I'm just confused as to why anyone would spend time producing these songs.



  6. 6

    AUTO-TUNE!!!! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?!
    PARENTS!!! WHAT ARE YOU LETTING YOUR CHILDREN DO?!

    Oh, gawd.



  7. 7

    Its too bad none of these kids can sing at all or old a note.



  8. 8

    What a group of talentless singers, none of them are going anywhere! what the heck is Ark and who is behind it - what a joke!



  9. 9

    I have a terrible feeling that this company is requiring the parents to pay them in order for the kids to go through there music classes and get them promoted.



  10. 10

    I think they are supporting them. No record label is just going to throw away thousands of dollars for music videos etc if they didnt believe in the artist. but i feel kinda bad that shes getting so much hate shes just a child

  11. k-lee says – reply to this

    W.T.F?! Okay, I'm sorry but these kids cannot sing at all. What's the point of this company? And who are these audience, their families I bet. The rapping 9 year old and the last one are at least decent, the rest are… I don't even know what to say.



  12. 12

    It's an assembly business. NOBODY is "throwing money" at these kids. The kids' parents are "throwing money" at ARK music FACTORY so their young talentless brats can get a demo recorded and a cheezy music video made. It's obvious. This has been going on for YEARS.



  13. 13

    Why is it the media has to make these idiots rich and famous and then a small SMALL group of people that actually like her are the ones that fuel this shit. The media needs to STOP giving people like this their 15 minutes and the oportunity to make millions, because the truth of the matter is this girl is HORRIBLE, wasn't even singing but rather just talking. the kids aren't even old enough to be driving legally LOL..But yeah, A girl that made the worst song and video in the history of damn music almost should not be given 15 mins….DUMB I swear, Media outlets need to just not cover anything that happens on the internet..



  14. 14

    The last girl's name is Ariana Dvornik. I went to her youtube page and she's actually pretty good. www.youtube.com/arianadvornik The blonde girl was pretty good too I think.



  15. 15

    So these kid's parents are paying this 'record label' to represent and produce them? That's ridiculous. It's like those sleazy 'modelling agencies' that ask people to pay them to be on their books.
    If a record label/modelling agency thinks you're talented, you won't have to pay them a penny for representation. You make them money by modelling/singing/acting/whatever, not by paying them cash.
    Why does everyone think their kid is the new beiber/Cyrus anyway? It's all so fake and creepy.



  16. 16

    uhhh i dont wanna sound mean but listening to all of them makes me laugh…. especially when i hear "friday" lol… the lyrics are just soo bad…
    & as for the rest of them…. they are sound pretty much the same……
    It's kinda sad =/.



  17. 17

    "she has more talent than my little toe got in it"………………………………..did he mean that as a compliment?



  18. 18

    THIS ISN'T EVEN FUNNY…..THIS A PATHETIC! HAVE YOU SEEN THE VIDEO FOR "FRIDAY NIGHT" OR WHATEVER ITS CALLED, SHE'S MONO-TONED AND TALKING, SOUNDING LIKE A MAN HALF THE TIME, IT'S PURE CHEESE, THIS IS NOT MUSIC!!!! HEIDI MONTAG AND KIM KARDASHIAN HAVE MORE TALENT THAN THIS!!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!! PEOPLE HAVE POSTED SHE MIGHT BE THE NEXT BRITNEY SPEARS! HAHAHAHA GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!! IF THIS IS WHAT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS COMING TO WE ARE FUCKED!!!



  19. 19

    Sleezy. These people are just having the parents pay them to produce this crap. It explains why the music industry is as fucked up as it is right now.



  20. 20

    Who ever is in charge of this horrid attempt at music NEEDS to be ordered death by firing squad.



  21. 21

    First thought: is there a church group supporting ARK?

    Second thought: If I were ARK I would go to cable ie. ARK Network.

    These kids could 'star' in everything: the music videos, sitcoms, commercials. They could even do their own 'Behind the Music' type show to document each 'artists' journey.

    One might just be the next Kesha. A couple look ripe for spectacular meltdowns.

    The advertising revenue and other residuals would be amazing!



  22. 22

    I have no doubt that the label isn't paying them…they're paying the label…



  23. 23

    I think there was only 2 with actual talent…. most of them can't sing and are off tune. Maybe I should had put a youtube video of me singing. If people put money into them that can't even sing I am now sure I had a huge chance… When I was 15 I sang better than Charlotte Church did and now that I am 25 I'm basically too old because nobody is going to search adult who can sing on youtube, they search for amazing 5 year old who can sing etc… hahaha … çe la vie xx



  24. 24

    These kids need some legal help now. Screw Ark, unless they're blind, deaf, and dumb, they're exploiting these kids for money. You better bet they're gonna squeeze every last red cent out of that poor Rebecca Black. Hopefully all this attention and what they're going to do to her won't mess her up too much.



  25. 25

    Awful, hideous, ear drum bursting. It's like Ark is the 'Barbizon' modeling of the music industry. None of those kids are talented (maybe 1), and it's obvious Ark isn't giving these kids voice-coaching.



  26. 26

    Whatever they're doing, a person can't deny that the exposure and views generated are phenomenal! Makes me almost wonder if this isn't some sort of social experiment and somebody is going to jump out and yell, "PSYCH!"



  27. 27

    Ok, I do want to hear more of the band that sang "Party Like the Rich Kids". They seemed talented.



  28. 28

    This seemed like one long SNL skit…



  29. 29

    The parents are partly to blame they're either pushy or won't tell their kids they aren't good enough. Either way it's the children that will be hurt in the end



  30. 30

    Crazy, insane and down right WRONG! Feel so bad for the kids and the fam. Quincy Jones left a message??? No way he can be apart of this SCAM. IF he is then his old age age has him NUTZO! Loking for some real talented kids? Google these rats iLL Fletch.



  31. 31

    This is pure exploitation.
    They're targeting kids and families who see people like Justin Bieber and Hannah Montana making tons of money, and they want their kids to be tween disney stars too. Obviously the masterminds behind Ark see it too- and they must be charging parents an assload of money for the writing/recording of a song, and a video. I just don't see where else this money is coming from.
    Congrats to the Black Family. You just paid an assload of money to make your kid look like an idiot!
    not a SINGLE kid on the "label" has one shred of talent. not one shred.



  32. 32

    Tyler Shamy played his own music and wrote the song. He does not belong with these no talent toddlers and wannabes.



  33. 33

    bad lighting !!!



  34. 34

    Tyler Shamy is amazing and so talented. He's going to be a household name one day I can almost guarantee it. Tyler– keep doing what you're doing and making fantastic music! @ErinBrianneCL



  35. 35

    This is 9 minutes long?
    There is NO way I could sit through all of this…..

    These kids will not be prepared for the whats going to be coming at them.

    Re: Swimm3r

    you have GOT to be kidding me!



  37. 37

    These are the pop stars of the future. Prewritten songs with pretty or precocious talentless kids injected in, then produced to "record quality".
