Rebecca Black’s Friday 10 years on: ‘I’ve by no means regretted it’


Rebecca Black’s Friday is 10 years outdated this month. Feel outdated but?

The singer was simply 13 when her track shot to infamy, getting an enormous backlash on-line and inflicting trolls to assault her for years.

But it didn’t cease her doing what she actually needed – and she or he’s received new music on the 10th anniversary of Friday’s launch.

Rebecca tells Radio 1 Newsbeat how the feedback affected her on the time, popping out publicly as queer and her new track Girlfriend.
