Rebecca Black, the ‘tween singer that became the girl everyone loved to hate after releasing the pop song ‘Friday’ in 2011, is finally addressing the said hate.

Black’s ‘Friday’ song and music video may have been viewed millions of times (over 68 million at time of publication), but it most definitely wasn’t because of a growing fan base. People loved to make fun of 13-year-old Black. Her song was obnoxious, whiny, terribly written and performed, and was supported by a music video including dental braces, young kids pretending to drive cars, and extremely poor special effects.

Three years later, a now 16-year old Black has posted a video entitled ‘Rebecca Black Reacts to Hate Comments’.

“I don’t really care if anyone hates me, as you can tell,” Black says in the video. “It’s been three and a half years. I’m still here. I’m still singing. You can say whatever you want about me, but I think I’m sticking around, so … sorry ’bout it.”
