My two cents about the Rebecca Black experiment

Category: English postsIuliana @ 13:58

I won’t say the song is terrible.
I won’t say this is some kind of social experiment.
I won’t say that the record company that produced it exploits 13 year olds.
I won’t say anything about the 57 milions of views on youtube.

Buy I will say something about the girl and her mom, because I read on some site that the video was a present from a mother to her child. I don’t believe that when you pay somebody 2000$ for a service, you have no word in how that service should be provided. I mean, when you pay someone to redecorate your house for example, you tell him what you want, he comes up with a model and you agree or not. How stupid is Rebecca Black and her mom, in order for them not to realize that the song was sooo fucking stupid and ridiculous? The beat might be catchy, but lyrics have no rimes, rythm or measure and here and there we can also notice some really bad grammar. (Well, I guess that is the level of culture and intelligence among 13 year olds in some countries.)

But I guess all these things actually have no meaning when the final outcome is MONEY. In Romania we have a saying: “Prost să fii, noroc să ai” which can be translated as: “You can be as stupid as the universe tolerates it, as long as you are lucky“. I guess stupids are the most lucky ones in this world, and the Rebecca Black experiment confirms it.

    Nu e vorba de cat de stupide sunt rebecca si sora ei.Pentru ca actiunea lor poate fi destul de usor de inteles.Mamica vrea sa vada fata pe sticla….noua Britney Spears,iar fetita bineinteles ca este “pupata in fund”….si e star in cartier.Plus ca pentru toate astea au primit o carutza de bani.Cat de prosti sa fie cei de la Casa de productie care au sposorizat un astfel de excrement si sa faca si videoclip la el.Asta daca e sa o luam la nivel logic.Cat despre partea comerciala…totul trebuie sa aiba un happy beat.Foarte multe persoane nu dau doi bani pe lyrics atata timp cat piesa are un beat fain.Nu conteaza ca ai doar un singur vers pe care il repeti la nesfarsit.
    Nu imi place sa recunosc dar acest lucru este luat din muzica house/trance.Aici accentul se pune pe beat si efecte nu pe lyrics(Dance 4 life al lui Tiesto,In and Out of love a lui Armin,etc).Dar la urma urmei este vorba doar de bani.Asta se asculta…asta se produce.Ai un beat dansabil,ai o tipa care sta mereu cu gura deschisa si eventual cat mai dezbracata care danseaza cat mai lasciv…si ai facut “hit”-ul…dupa care THEY ARE NEVER HEARD FROM AGAIN.
