While Simon Cowell, Lady Gaga, Chris Brown, Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber may support Rebecca Black, you won’t find Miley Cyrus covering or praising her catchy ditty “Friday.” The 18-year-old singer voiced her opinion on the 13-year-old Internet sensation in a recent interview, and she didn’t have anything nice to say.
From her salvia bong incident to family drama and relationship scandals, the 18-year-old singer is now remaining very focused on her singing career, which she has no regrets about.
“It should be harder to be an artist,” Miley told Australia’s Daily Telegraph, via the New York Daily News. “You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour.”
Rebecca, who gained more than 16 million YouTube views in less than a week after debuting the heavily auto-tuned song “Friday” which has now reached over 65 million views, is on track to make hundreds of thousands of dollars from her catchy song.
Even Lady Gaga praised Rebecca’s work, Tweeting recently: “I say Rebecca Black is a genius and that anybody telling her she’s cheesy is full of s**t.”
But Miley is far from impressed.
“I would rather someone say I sang like crap, than have people see me lip-sync,” she said. “There’ll be acoustic things, songs I’ve never done on tour before.”
Looks like the former Disney star won’t be following the path of ex Nick Jonas or JB when it comes to covering “Friday.”
