Rebecca Black: I'll Never Give Up Singing
May 09, 2012
Rebecca Black achieved worldwide notoriety in 2011 with the release of her incredibly catchy and even more controversial single, Friday.
Now, she's back with a brand new song -- the summery Sing It and as sunny an attitude about her fame and future.
Insider.com: How do you describe Sing It?
Rebecca Black: Sing It is very summery – it's all about letting the music in. It's very different than anything I've ever released but very appropriate for summer. I hope people will want to sing this in their car as their drive!
Insider: With all the negative attention after Friday, did you ever think about abandoning entertainment?
Rebecca: No. It's such a passion of mine, I would never give it up. The first moment it all went down [was shocking] but I never had that moment where I felt I shouldn't be doing it. Singing has to be part of my life in one way or another.
Insider: What did you learn from the experience?
Rebecca: I learned to not let mean spirited people get to you. You have to keep doing and it doesn't matter what people say – if you really love something, keep going and don't let anyone stop you.
Insider: You've released three singles so far, is an album in the works?
Rebecca: We are working on an album, which is very exciting – I'll be back in the studio this summer with hopes of it being out in the fall.
Insider: What can fans expect from that?
Rebecca: I've got some fun, dancey upbeat songs, but also some soft ballads.
