The new Rebecca Black has arrived! Only this time, she’s not a 13-year-old child too young to know better, but a fully grown, 30-something-year-old woman. Which makes it much fun. I’m speaking, of course, of the lady who made and posted this terrible music video as a “surprise” for her husband on their wedding day. “This Is The Worst Thing In The Entire Universe” was the headline Gawker chose.
I know bloggers like hyperbole (lord knows I do), but really? Maybe I’ve still got a case of wedding fever, but I don’t know if this even approaches “getting a paper cut” levels of worst. Yes, this woman overestimated her singing abilities, and yes, the song is even worse than “Friday,” and yes yes yes, this seems like something straight out of Stuff White People Like. But maybe her husband likes bad music and goofy shit? In which case, she did it to make him happy, not to torture him. Her only sin, as far as I can tell, was tweeting it at HuffPo, but she vanished from the Internet at the first hint of backlash, so maybe she’s not the delusional famewhore we originally thought.
Anyway, there are about a million worse things I can think of, just off the top of my head. Here are eight of them.
