Rebecca Black's 'My Moment' tops 22 million streams
And she has.
The single, a follow-up to her viral hit “Friday,” has topped more than 22 million views. “My Moment,” which she released only a few weeks ago, was watched nearly 2 million times in less than 24 hours.
Black's fame has had its consequences, though. She revealed on ABC's “Nightline” Wednesday that she was forced to drop out of her Orange County school after ferocious bullying and taunts reached a breaking point.
"When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice," she said of the constant mocking. "Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?' "
But, then, who needs silly high school drama when friends like Katy Perry like you enough to bring you out onstage and put you in her video?
