14-year-old Rebecca Black has reportedly dropped out of school due to excessive bullying about that one song she put out on the internet. Poor girl apparently couldn’t take the heat anymore. More from Business Insider:
“When I walk by [other kids will] start singing ‘Friday’ in a really nasally voice… Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'” says Black.
Her mom condoned the decision, saying that Black doesn’t need the pressure or the taunting. She also wants her daughter to focus on her career.
Black will be home-schooled until the bullying dies down, which I can’t imagine happening any time soon. She’s still got an entourage, though! Her billion views on YouTube have afforded her a personal stylist, manager, makeup artist, publicist, and body guard. In sum: pretty sure Rebecca Black will be fine.
