Despite receiving bad reviews, new internet sensation Rebecca Black has been steadily climbing iTunes Top 100 with her single "Friday". The 13-year-old girl is currently sitting at Number 69 in the digital songs chart after releasing the track on Monday, March 14.

Rebecca herself has since expressed her gratitude on Twitter, ignoring the haters and thanking those supporting her. "Slowly working it's way to the top!! Thank you all so much!" she tweeted. "So honored. So many amazing and talented people actually KNOW of my song. It's been an incredible last few days. Thanks you all!"

People only listen to your song for a laugh. People only buy your song to make fun of you. Don't take the things going around you seriously. After your so called single 'Friday' you're going to be forgotten.

You know what, Rebecca's getting the last laugh! All we need now is the club remixes and a follow up single featuring Snoop Dogg and she's on her way!

It's fun fun fun fun to see the song climb the charts. Then the song can be used for partying partying, partying partying.

I think the song is depressingly bad (blisteringly inane lyrics aside, how the f does someone think they're a singer when they need AutoTune to get through a three-note melody?!?), but everyone I know who's heard it thinks it's a laugh riot and would happily blow 99 cents on a copy. It's beyond belief that this song's popularity has anything to do with people actually liking it for what it tries to be (unless you're Rebecca Black and you really, really want to believe that it does, I guess). "Despite" is the wrong first word for this article.
