Already creating controversy with her Auto-Tuned viral hit "Friday", Rebecca Black now might spark another debate with her recent statement. The YouTube sensation told Teen Vogue that she sounds like country music singer Taylor Swift.

"People tell me I sound like Taylor Swift," Rebecca said when asked to choose between Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Taylor about which one she sounds like the most. She added, "Once you hear my sound without any adjustments - just my raw voice - it's unique."

Although she has repeatedly been criticized for her lack of singing skills, Rebecca has always been confident with her talent and kept her head high. When asked about "American Idol", she gushed, "I watch every episode. I've always considered auditioning when I turn fifteen."

Rebecca is currently working on her debut album, and preparing for her second single titled "LOL". She once revealed her dream to make a duet with Justin Bieber. "I have Bieber fever, I am in love with Justin Bieber," she said. "Justin, ... would you do a duet with me? That would be unreal, that would just make my life."

Beside being a fan of Justin, she also showed her love for another YouTube singing sensation Greyson Chance. "I watched his first video like 20 times. He's adorable! It's so cool that he was at a school talent show, and it just went viral like that," she stated.

"I mean there some people who have had a little jump start in the business, like Miley Cyrus, but watching Justin Bieber become big when he was so young was insane. I never thought I could be anything like him, and now people are comparing me to him!"

OMG Rebecca Black you are the most egoistical person ever! How the hell do you sound like Taylor Swift stop deceiving yourself your voice sucks there's no way you're gonna make it big where maybe only for notoriety. Your voice is fake and auto-tuned and utterly dumbfounded me. Whatever on earth were you thinking?! Please don't put your name in the same sentence as Taylor's. Sheesh. Good luck with deflating your huge head.

No wonder Miley's hating on Rebecca Black, cuz she don't wanna admit she's only famous cuz of her daddy. Rebecca points it out and suddenly Miley's all like "Oh, one YouTube video doesn't make an artist."
