How Rebecca Black Will Earn Her First Million

I know this damn song will be stuck in my head by the last paragraph, but I’ll take one for the team. Starring in the “worst video ever made” might be the best thing Rebecca Black has ever done.

Between the 35+ million YouTube views and downloads, Friday could earn Black and Ark Music Factory $1 million.

I love that we live in a world where you can get just as rich and famous as someone with talent by being completely untalented.

Not to say that Rebecca Black is untalented, but how could we tell? The song sounds like a little girl singing a duet with a robot.

YouTube pays about $1 per 1,000 page views, but the majority of the profit will come from downloads. iTunes pays 70 cents per download.

Ok, now I have go wash out “gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal” by listening to The Wall or something.
