Miley Cyrus Is NOT On The Rebecca Black Bandwagon

| Filed under: Music MinuteMiley CyrusYouTube

miley talks rebecca black

Why all the hatin' on Rebecca Black, Miley? Are you jealous that these days people would rather party on a Friday than in the U.S.A.? Ha!

Recently, Miley Cyrus was asked for her thoughts on Friday singer Rebecca Black, and she had the following to say about her:

"It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn't just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour."

We see where you're coming from, Mileybird, but the times they are a-changin'! And given the fact that Black is back in the recording studio, she's clearly doing SOMETHING right.

Do U agree with Miley? Or do U think Rebecca Black deserves all the success that seems to be headed her way?

    While I am not a fan of Rebecca Black, I do think Miley is an already washed up hag who should have no say in the matter. Ha.

  2. 2

    I don't really think that Miley Cyrus of anyone can say that , the main reason she has a record contract is because of who her father is. Especially as other artists have worked a lot longer and harder to get to where they are , e.g lady gaga , it's a bit hypocritical

  3. 3

    She's actually correct. That being said, it should also be more difficult than just having a parent in the industry creating overnight success for their children. The same can also be said for these ridiculous book deals for pseudo-celebs.

  4. 4

    music is about people liking your music, not about having a rich daddy who spent tons of money so her ugly daughter could become a star

  5. 5

    It is not even because it is a youtube success, because Justin Bieber was and we all know that he is a very talented artist, and he is not only very good looking but has a great voice and can dance. Rebecca Black stands for everything BAD that pop music has now: first off, she is in 8th grade and look at what she is wearing in that video, number 2, she is a TERRIBLE lipsinger, and she cannot sing. My advice for her, go back to school, get some knowledge on music and worldly knowledge in general, AND THEN, whenever you are prepared for the real world, do this. Stop making a fool out of yourself.

  6. 6

    shut up miley

  7. 7

    is she serious? She had her career handed to her. Her dad is billy ray cyrus and her godmother is dolly parton

  8. 8

    Come on. Welcome to the changing times Miley. Rebecca Black managed to garner 60+ million without spending a penny on marketing. It was all done through the social media. That is where the future is heading Miley.

    No mass marketing or manufacturing by giant exploitative corporations like Disney. Stop hating on the poor girl, she is only 13 and she was having fun with the song. She might even be your biggest fan.

  9. 9

    i fully agree MC here isnt the best but she worked hard on her show to be able to evolve into the musician. rebecca cant sing shes WAY TO YOUNG and her song was an abomination to anyone who writes lyrics.

  10. 10

    Says the girl with the average voice, the generic music and the average looks, whom got famous through her daddy's celebrity status.
    Now, define irony.

  11. 11

    MIley is right… u just can come with some shitty song and become an artist without effort and work…sorry beca get lost

  12. 12

    I agree with Miley on this one.

  13. 13

    Wow! Wow! If it was harder to be an artist, she wouldn't be around on the back of her father and Disney's "factory machine."

  14. 14

    She doesn't have a famous dad though… so youtube worked just the same.

  15. 15

    Pot meet Kettle. She is so niave and spoile she doesnt even realize she had the same advantage….rich connected daddy gets her a job and she doesnt need any musical talent. Plus, I hope she just used the word artist and does not actually consider herself one. These popstars call themselves artists but newflash artists create they memorize other peoples art. entertainers at best not artists. thats what is the most frustrating, not the music (yeah i think its awful) but rather the popstar who doesnt write, play etc that calls themselves an artists. gaga, kate perry, avril, brittney, christina etc. being connected and/or having no shame or diginity is their only talent.

  16. 16

    Even though I dont love her, I have to go with Miley all the way.

  17. 17

    There is nothing wrong with being discovered on you tube, but I believe you should really have talent. This Rebecca girl is a joke. She can have her mommy put up all the money she wants to get her in a recording studio, but it's going to be a waste of time and money…..She's not talented.

  18. 18

    I think that was a diplomatic way of saying she think the girl sucks.

  19. 19

    you know what screw it I am gonna join the talentess crop of popstars that think their artists. lets see, i am gonna pay alex rodriguez to hit homeruns but we will put his totals under my name so i can win the hr title. then i will pay gordon to win a nascar race and say I did (now i am a nascar champ) and lastly, i think i want be a movie writer so i will pay cameron to write a movie for me this way the world will see how much of a cinematic genius i am. Its hard work slapping my name on other peoples skills. Now just have to have my famous dad call in a favor and boom i am a artist. hard hard work

  20. 20

    Let's put this nicely … She is famous because of her dad.

  21. 21

    I don't think she has anything to worry about- Rebecca Black's only claim to fame is having the WORST song EVER. I'm not sure anyone would really waste their money on buying tickets for that. Rebecca's more of a novelty than an 'artist'. On the other hand, Beiber and the Gaga 'Born this Way' Girl were noticed from Youtube, and really have talent, so to discount it is to be in denial.

  22. 22

    Not that I like Rebecca but Miley's career was made for her too.. I doubt she would have made it without daddy

  23. 23

    it's a good thing miley cyrus doesn't have a famous dad or anything that got her to where she is today or she would sound totally idiotic!!

  24. 24

    Miley, don't hate the player, hate the game…..

  25. 25

    Really, Miley? How do you think Justin Beiber got discovered? I believe it was on youtube. You have had everything handed to you because of who your dad is or was back in the day. You're not that great of a singer either. You just have the money to have your albums mixed really well. Give the girl a break, you ungrateful brat.

  26. 26

    I never thought that I'd ever be in this position but I think I need to defend Miley. While its true that she has a parent in the industry it wasn't because of that parent that her Hannah Montana show became as popular as it did. Little kids loved that crap for whatever reason. So technically over the course of however many years its been she's actually paid some dues and therefore has a say IMO.

  27. 27

    if people will pay to see you, you can go on tour. that's the only requirement.

  28. 28

    Does she not know that's how Justin Bieber got started? A kid whose mom put videos of him on YouTube? Next thing you know he's "JUSTIN BIEBER" out on tour.

    I have no idea who Rebecca Black is though. That's probably a good thing.

  29. 29

    Talent is talent, who cares where it's discovered, be it youtube or nepotism.

  30. 30

    She is wrong!!!! Miley would not have a record out herself if it were not for the family being in the entertainment business….please….if someone can become a break out star through YouTube good for them….I am not saying I am going to rush out and buy her record but she has an audience…obviously people are listening to her. Miley has no idea how hard it is to break into showbiz when your family is not famous. So ungrateful when everythings been handed to her on a plate.

  31. 31

    Wait… did Miley just indirectly refer to herself as an artist? BAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

  32. 32

    Of course you don't agree, it goes against your whole lame ass way of finding a cash cow. That little boy, and the other people you shove at us and try to make viral videos out of. If I remember correctly, before you realized how to capitalize on Rebecca Black and Ark Music Factory your opinion was that it seemed to be taking advantage of people, and manipulative. I'd have to agree with your previous perspective, your current one is clouded by $$ in your eyes.

  33. 33

    Miley calling the kettle black? I'm sure her Dad being a famous country star had zero influence on her success…righhhttttttt…lol

  34. 34


  35. 35

    I agree with her, but she is not one to be making that comment since she didn't have to work that hard for hers.

  36. 36

    Although I agree with her statement, she should not be talking.

  37. 37

    Wow there are a lot of haters hating on a 13 year old girl who's just trying to make a name for herself, if Miley Cyrus not a Rebecca Black fan then that's here problem to deal with but saying all those hateful comments about a 13 year old girl, that's just really pathetic, if you're not a fan of Rebecca Black then that's fine, whatever but if you people don't have anything nice to say about her then don't say anything at all, keep you're damn comments to yourself

  38. 38

    Re: Claudette Lucianne – why don't you get lost and stop being a hater.

  39. 39

    If it were harder to be an artist, Miley, you wouldn't be one.

  40. 40

    If you are a Perez hater, don't visit this site on April 1st. Let's show him the power of the haters.

  41. 41

    The unfortunate part about Rebecca Black is she is being used by the record company to cash in on her 15 minutes. She'll be a mere memory by the end of the year.

  42. 42

    Miley SHUT THE FUCK UP. You are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not one to talk considering you became famous off your dad. Like are you kidding me? People like Taylor Swift - who worked for their success - could say this, but not you. Are you THAT dumb? You became famous off the fact that 1. your dad is Billy Ray Cyrus. and 2. the fact that you purposely took skanky ass photos of yourself and acted like a fucking stripper. You're really dumb. I'm not even a fan of rb but wow, you really need to shut up because you don't have ANY room to talk my dear. Go back to doing what you do best - stripping and poledancing. Hey, why not become a stripper instead? YOU'RE PERFECT FOR IT! You already dress like one, you poledance, give lapdances, take half-naked photos of yourself, act like a whore, everything.

  43. 43

    wow…..she's saying this considering she was born into stardom? really? If you're talented, you're talented. The internet is one of the best ways to put yourself out there…just ask the JB

  44. 44

    Oh, so it should be tougher…kind of like if your father is a famous singer? Give me a break. It's the FANS who decide what and who will be popular…it's not dictated by the "artists." Stop talking, Miley.

  45. 45

    When people like Rebecca Black are in the recording studio to do MORE of what she already did. . .well, I think it's time the pop culture industry stopped and took a look at their standards!

  46. 46

    Re: flopta – Are you talking about Miley or Rebecca?

  47. 47

    It's not about being discover on YouTube that's the problem but why can't talented artists be discover instead. I also wouldn't include Justin Bieber in the list of talented YouTube discoveries sorry.

  48. 48

    She is so right! Rebecca Black is too young, has zero experience, her lyrics are just ridiculous and BAM she is so famous, for all the wrong reasons…

  49. 49

    Maybe an "artist" should dress like a skank and have a Daddy in the business. She is such a spoiled brat!

  50. 50

    One shouldn't get famous simply off having a famous father either. One should also be required to have an iota of talent prior to going on tour. Hannah Montana has no room to talk.

  51. 51

    it's kind of sad that rebecca black got so many clicks on youtube - the song sucks. i mean come on those lyrics are stupid and the whole video is ridiculous.
    there are other people who put their stuff on youtube and are way more talented. so i agree with miley but she isn't really a good example of working very hard to become famous - as other people already mentioned - she got the success handed to her through her dad.

    [sry for my english - it's not my mother tongue :) ]

  52. 52

    Okay….. quit comparing Rebecca Black to Justin Bieber. He actually has talent. She doesn't. Her mom paid for her shitty music video that she put on youtube. Miley is right. Also…. I think you're all wrong/ignorant with your Miley's dad made her famous. Who the hell was even thinking about Billy Ray after achy breaky heart?? No one. She might have had a slight in, but don't think she didn't get there on her own merit. Having a "famous" (ie washed up father) doesn't mean you'll be the face of a successful billion dollar franchise…. You can hate all you want, but don't for a second imply that she didn't work for or earn any of it because she did.
    Jealousy doesn't look good on anyone.

  53. 53

    Re: tenyearsgone – how about if you are a perez hater you don't visit the site ever? if you hate him so much then what is the draw that makes you visit on a daily basis. is it just to be a jerk and write rude comments on his posts? if you have this huge problems with perez then just don't visit the site at all and find better things to do with your time.

  54. 54

    shes one to talk! then only reason she has any 'spotlight',i guess you could say, on her is because she took pics of herself partially nude! and she pretends to be rebellious and an american sweetheart at the same time. and its really sad to see that miley and all those disneyish people are the future of music! why cant we have the beatles, oasis or something that changes music for the better! instead we're stuck with these shitty songs about it being friday! when i know about 300 artists that are a million times more deserving of miley, bieber, lady gaga or britney's(who isn't actually that good even though perez kisses her ass!) status in the music industry! all the good music nowadays is indie, alternative or house, the only music i can bare to listen to thats from america is the strokes, fleet foxes and arcade fire anything else form over there is either country or pop that gets noticed!

  55. 55

    amazing jealousy about Miley and people rewriting history. She auditioned for Lily role in Hannah Montana through a Tennessee talent agency and was rejected a number of times yet persisted, her getting the role for HM had nothing to do with her father. Do some basic research people. Please. The stupid thing about what you people are saying is Trace, Brandi, and Braison, heard of them, MIley's siblings, should also be big in the industry since they have the same father. But they aren't. Miley's talent earned her superstardom over fellow Disney peeps like the Jonas Bro, Selena G. Demi L, none of them quite have Miley's star power. And, Miley didn't diss Black, she made a general statement and since she doesn't get into any real scandals, much ado about absolutely nothing again.

  56. 56

    I can't believe she saying this lol…didn't she get a head start because of her daddy?? so maybe it shouldn't be so hard to be an artist when you have a famous daddy…just sayin

  57. 57

    people don't "like" rebecca black.
    they like to make fun of her.
    well i do at least.

  58. 58

    Whaaat? She is only famous because of her one hit wonder dad! She was basically born into the business. How "hard" did she work to put an album out? There are so many people on youtube trying to make it! It's a pretty special thing when millions of people recognize and love your music. Who cares where or how you got famous? If people like you, they like you.

  59. 59

    I thought Rebecca Black was in a way accepted by the general public as "obscene" and "hilarious"….so why is there articles about people defending her and getting mad at her? She's famous because of how BAD it is. No one actually likes it, not even kids. I don't know what this site is talking about, I don't think she will have a career.
    Whatever, I think I'm not going to show up on this site either on Aprill 1st. I used to be a big fan, and got a lot of people into this site….now its just sad =/

  60. 60

    she is right!!!!

  61. 61

    miley had a tv show that got her fame and oh yeah HER FAMILY. shut up miley your just mad your music has been to good as of late ;)

  62. jham says – reply to this


    I can see her side of the story - that poor girl has been pimped out since she was what, eight? Working her butt off in tv, music, etc . . .

  63. 63

    Rebecca who?

  64. 64

    You people are so late;

    Here is what they had to say:
    For starters, Cyrus NEVER called out – or even mentioned – Rebecca Black.

    Cyrus didn’t “take it out” on Black. HollywoodLife did.

    Nor did Cyrus “forget” Bieber.

    In fact, a source close to Cyrus – and privvy to the full interview with the Daily Telegraph - tells Gossip Cop the star’s comment was a direct response to a question about YouTube sensations like Justin Bieber.

    Our insider tells us, “Miley said Justin was a friend” and “talked about how hard he’s worked” to make it ever since his music was posted on YouTube.

    In other words, Cyrus slammed neither Black nor Bieber, despite HollywoodLife’s misleading headline.

  65. 65

    This was debunked by Gossip cop… two days ago.

    That's what they had to say:
    For starters, Cyrus NEVER called out – or even mentioned – Rebecca Black.

    Cyrus didn’t “take it out” on Black. HollywoodLife did.

    Nor did Cyrus “forget” Bieber.

    In fact, a source close to Cyrus – and privvy to the full interview with the Daily Telegraph - tells Gossip Cop the star’s comment was a direct response to a question about YouTube sensations like Justin Bieber.

    In other words, Cyrus slammed neither Black nor Bieber, despite HollywoodLife’s misleading headline.

  66. 66


    That is exactly how it should be to become an artist.. From real talent! Not having famous parents with a crapload of money.

    Doesn't Miley realize the only reason SHE has any success or was even given a chance was because of her Dad!?

    Ugh, annoying.

  67. 67

    as opposed to how Miley did it, with no singing talent whatsoever, and riding daddy's coat-tails? Can't stand Miley, but I honestly don't know who's worse..her or Rebecca Black.

  68. 68

    I can't believe people here are actually against Miley. Friday is the worst song that has ever been written and played for the public and rebecca black should be ashamed of herself and stop writing music. quit trying to get on the bandwagon bitttchhhhhh

  69. 69

    Re: scotch_pirate – I absolutely and completely agree.

  70. 70

    yeah like have the right father

  71. 71

    I love how most of u are acting as if ur defending Rebecca when God knows %50 of u can't stand her.

  72. 72

    Like Miley would know…she got a TV show because her dad is a washed up early 90s pop "star".

  73. 73

    Re: April 20th – says the person with Robert Pattinson in their icon. LOL!Re: Bobodo – WOOT WOOT! Tell it man! If Miley were really famous cause of her dad, then all of other sibblings should be just as big as she is. But they weren't. Trace tried to start a band and he got now where near as successful as Miley And do they not share the same father? So I think it's the other way around. Billy Ray is only famous cause of Miley. The man had one hit at the top of the charts. Miley has had over 5 multi-platinum album and 13 singles in the top ten on the billboard? U mean to tell me she got all of that just because her daddy sings akeky breaky? LOL!

  74. 74

    for once, i agree with miley. rebecca black is a talentless little girl who has rich parents. the only reason she is famous is because she bought a music video, and it caught on because it was so BAD, not good.

  75. 75

    Oh look who's talking. Miley would be nothing without her famewhore parents. Disney's cashcow… Your 15 minutes are almost up =)

  76. 76

    Give Rebecca credit. She's not a bad singer. With a little help from a singing coach, I think she could be really good! The song wasn't that bad and maybe the second one will be even better! Besides, Miley is one to talk. She had her show handed to her because of her daddy. I'd say that's easier than Rebecca!

  77. 77

    Someone should mention to Miley Cyrus that not everyone can be born into being a celebrity with a famous daddy. Some people have to actually work hard to become famous.

  78. 78

    i seriously doubt her one hit wonder daddy gave her anything more than a small push in her carreer. youd have to have a carreer of ur own to give your kid one.

  79. 79

    okay this is coming from someone whos been given everything her whole life & is a self centered spoiled brat who has no concept of real life

  80. 80

    Well Miley, it's not exactly fair that you became an "artist" because you had a famous father either…

  81. 81

    Who does she care how someone becomes a recording artist? If they are really worth something and have a fan base obviously they will stick around. If not they will just fade away like so many one hit wonders have.

  82. 82

    God almighty, who gave that girl a record deal in the first place. Friday is an awful awful novelty song. Who would want to hear more other than to just laugh at it. I really hope this Black girl crawls back into the hell hole from whence she came.

  83. 83

    wow. i just lost respect for miley cyrus. seriously, miley? this is coming from the girl who got famous by using her daddy? lol Rebecca Black got famous on her own. she didn't need no help from her "Daddy". Rebecca seriously has talent, i mean she managed to put out one song and just have people around her finger in seconds. Friday is a hit. and you didn't exactly work hard to get famous. You were just taking the fame a way from your famous father. since no one really cares about billy ray anymore. you just took it away like that. no hard work included. lol yeah, i wouldn't be talking if i were you. rebecca black deserves to be famous and i can't wait to hear more from her. very talented girl. more talented than miley cyrus that's for sure. rebecca black worked her butt off to get where she is. your just jealous miley because no one is paying attention to you. you should just go back to smoking salvia and being a skanky whore.

  84. 84

    Re: BeeLahhve – No, She's not right. Miley is just jealous.

  85. 85

    gotta say that..i totally agree with miley.. btw c'mon have u heard friday????!!!

  86. 86

    LOL she should take a moment and realize what she said.
    "It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn't just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour."

    In her case it should be…
    "It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn't just be able to call up famous daddy, get your own tv show and go out on tour without any talent and personal effort."

    Sad, but true fucking story. Miley you are a talentless little brat, if it wasn't for your dad pushing people to allow you to do what you want, you wouldn't have what you have! You've taken the spot of someone who could of really been a good role model and had much more natural talent. You sound like a squawking bird when you sing… so what if Rebecca Black wants to do her thing. It's really none of your business anyways you're really not an average consumer when it comes to cd sales. Fans are.

  87. 87

    LMAO!!! Um ok Miley first of all isn't that how Justin Bieber was discovered, YOUTUBE??? Secondly Miley we don't all have parents who broke into the industry years ago to help us get our foot in the door. Why don't you just worry about nailing your next pole dancing performance and let Rebecca do her thing. bwaahhhahah!

  88. lolli says – reply to this



  89. 89

    Wow a lot of Rebecca haters on here. I'm not a fan but I find it rather amusing how all of you try to desguise your jealous as something other than what it is! If someone wants to let her record its a free country and if people choose to buy her music, its their choice! My gosh people, this is a young teenage girl we're talking about here. People are discovered in all kinds of ways, since when is their a right way??? Music is a business and if their is a demand someone is going to supply it.

  90. 90

    Shes just being miley. Rebecca black is stupid, and mileys right all those idiot little girls need to spot making "music" and go play with crayons.

  91. 91

    I wish my dad was famous and had his connections and could ride the coattails he had…I'd change my name to Miley too…cause Destiny's to hippy ish.

  92. 92

    Of all people Miley Cyrus!??! LMAO, she got her start because her father already had been in the music industry. So really it's all nepotism. But she has done more than this Rebecca Black character. Perez, I don't get how you make yourself out to be this music critic and yet you tout this new girl as being the "new" thing, the lyrics are garbage (granted she's 12) everything is shit in this song!!! That's like running around calling Snooki the new it actress. This site makes me throw up in my mouth and renews my cynicism.

  93. 93

    Miley didn't exactly work hard for her carer but she is right. If I got one of my friends to edit my voice singing a song and put it on youtube to become an overnight success it wouldn't be deserved. I cant sing, I don't want to be a singer and there are TONS of other people who have worked their arses off their whole lives for it.

    People comparing her to Justin Bieber, didn't he have loads of videos over a long time period of him busking. Not just one crappy song which makes no sense, envolves no talent, being sung by a child. Barely qualifies for a teenager.

  94. 94

    Although there are so many negative things about the "tween" demographic (like they love cheesy music/shows and can get their parents to buy anything), there is one important positive thing..they are fickle as hell. Which is why Miley's career is slowing down and Rebecca Black's career will be even shorter. And as hot as Bieber is now, wait until those Bieber girls get a little older. They will be bored with him too and even embarrased that they used to be a fan. How many "kid stars" are still popular today? Sometimes fickle is a good thing.

  95. 95

    HA! too easy…

  96. 96

    Re: Rory Miles – Exactly! I was going to post that lol But you took the words right out of my mouth. Of course, I do not think either one of them should have a record deal when there are more deserving people.

  97. 97

    i can't stand that little rebecca WACK girl! c'mon!! how long can she serioulsy last??

  98. 98

    if it were harder to be an artist, Miley wouldn't have a career

  99. 99

    Ok. So Miley Cyrus is a blert as it is. And i do agree with her… But if she feels that way why is she bum chums with Justin Bieber??

  100. 100

    That's like Jaden Smith saying it should be harder to become an actor.
