Success is truly the best revenge. Rebecca Black -- an unsigned 13-year-old singer who has become a YouTube sensation with a song Rolling Stone called an "unintentional parody of modern pop" -- has reached over 16 million views and a top slot on iTunes. Still, the teen says she cried over the harsh feedback online.

In an interview with GMA, she said the negative onslaught initially got to her: 

"At first, when I first saw all these nasty comments, I did cry. I felt like this was my fault. And I shouldn't have done this, and this is all because of me. And now I don't feel that way."
She now seems to be having a little fun with all the attention, playing on some critiques by taking to Twitter to ask if she should have a bowl of cereal or fried eggs to eat (haters bemoan that the chorus to "Friday" sounds like "fried eggs," she also sings about her breakfast routine in the song).

With the heavily auto-tuned track, many wondered if Rebecca can sing at all -- so she proved her pipes during the interview by singing part of the national anthem completely in tune. She seems to have a realistic outlook about her ability:  

"I think I have talent on some level. I don't think I'm the worst singer, but I don't think I'm the best singer."
"Friday" is now #39 on iTunes. No word yet on a follow-up single. See the full GMA report below:

Do you think Rebecca deserves the hate, or should people just let a young lady have a little fun and enjoy her 15 minutes? Tell Celebuzz on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr to take the conversation beyond the comment box!

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to understand so much approximately this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I believe that you can do with a few percent to pressure the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is great blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

    I think its sad that people today are being complete arseholes to everybody else. Sure the song may not be the best but everybody messes up so GET OVER IT. No need to publicly humiliate people. If a song like this came out in earlier years it would have been forgotten about and not mocked for so long like this one. Todays people are just petty and rude no wonder we have so many problems in society.

    It's not her lack of ptich and autotune. It's the nasal quality of her voice that makes it utterly intolerable. Wehhh!!! And who the hell is BUYING this piece of crap song? I hope it's at least people who think it's funny, not people who think it's good.

    people shouldnt only get on her. Is she any worse then Ke$ha? Justin Bieber? Selena Gomez? Lady Gaga? Rihanna? Katy perry? Come on!! She sucks but everyone one else deserves to have bad things said to them. THey all suck and it's pretty sad that this is what music has come to!! Yeah in the 70s there was disco and in the 80s there was all that madonna and cindy lauper shit but still!! At least there was other kinds of music!! Everything on the radio wasnt only pop!! God! Someone really needs to help the music industry right now!!

    Is it a bad song? Yes. Does it merit having someone tell a 13 year old they hope she gets an eating disorder and cuts herself? HELL NO.
