Spinlab sent over these details: A little over two months ago, Rebecca Black's life was like that of any other normal American 13 year old girl: attending junior high school, hanging out with friends, going to the mall. But this week, after a little more than two months since its debut, Rebecca's hit single "Friday" smashed the 100 million view barrier on YouTube, making the clip the 23rd most watched music video of all time on the site, and turning Rebecca's normal routine into a whirlwind of national television appearances, recording sessions and photo shoots.
The most viewed video of all time on YouTube is "Baby" by Justin Bieber, who can count Ms. Black as one of his biggest fans. But Rebecca's "Friday" which broke through the 100 Million view barrier after just 63 days is already outpacing the Bieber track which took 67 days to reach the lofty milestone. - more on this story
