With the screaming goat videos replacing the Harlem Shake as the Internet’s new viral video, why only stop at Taylor Swift? The new meme has everyone making remixes from Miley Cyrus, to One Direction and yes, even Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi? Trust me, the goat fits right into the song. Here are ten of the best goat videos out there right now:
Miley Cyrus – Party in the USA
This rendition of “Party in the USA” got me nodding my head like yeaaah, shaking my hips like yeaaaaah.
Justin Bieber – Baby
The classic “Baby” song. I think this one speaks for itself.
Rebecca Black – Friday
Is it bad to say that I believe this version might actually make it sound better?
David Guetta feat. Sia – Titanium Read more…
The world didn’t end yesterday as predicted by the Mayans, but Rebecca Black had one mind-blowing confession to make. One would think that her favourite day of the week is Friday, but yesterday she tweeted something that had literally everyone stopping in their tracks.
I feel betrayed. How could you Rebecca?
Nicole Westbrook performed her truly atrocious, over-produced song “It’s Thanksgiving” on Access Hollywood, gaining her another
15 2:30 minutes of anti-fame. While I don’t completely understand parents paying for their bratty kids to create silly, over-priced tracks by ARK Music, I’m not going to argue against it — do what you do. However, singing the song live for a few minutes of fame seems to send the message that you really don’t need talent to get a bit of attention.
Going on Access Hollywood is OBVS something a seventh grader would get excited about but something about the whole thing bothers me. Ultimately Nicole and ARK alum Rebecca Black are just having a bit of fun but the one really cashing in is Patrice Wilson, the mastermind behind it who knows he can capitalize off people making fun of these cheesy videos.

A new music video called “It’s Thanksgiving” was released yesterday from ARK Music Factory by one Nicole Westbrook, whose song is so cheesy it reaches Rebecca Black territory…. meme territory. She will be a gif.
Oh wait! She already is:
The song is basically the holiday-edition of “Friday,” which makes sense considering it comes from Patrice Wilson, the same guy who did Black’s 2011 ARK Music Factory song. We know he’s just banking off the tackiness at this point but I hope Westbrook has the strength to withstand catty Internet commenters. Westbrook’s auto-tuning isn’t as terrible as Black’s, but the lyrics and music video are on par — just wait until she starts singing with the turkey drumstick.
Next, I’d love to see a Christmas edition duet with Westbrook and Black. Let’s make it happen!

This tone deaf singer named Gnesa’s single “Wilder” is probably a joke, but my ears don’t think it’s funny. In fact, they entered into a state of shock after the fourth out of tune “lalala.” She posted her music video on her YouTube channel gnesamusic, which thankfully has no other “songs.”
While I’m impressed with the positivity of the commenters, who are saying things like “A voice of over 9000 angels!” and “I like the part where she goes “la la la la laaa la la laa la laaa,” I’m worried it will encourage her to put out another tune. Stop Internet! Stop her while you can.
Miley Cyrus retweeted a message from her long lost bun of hair. Although the bun has poor grammar, we respect that it isn’t holding hard feelings against Miley, who recently cut it off in favor of a Twiggy-esque cut. The bun even advised Miley on how to tell off haters. Message: If you’re going to tell people off, it’s always more legitimate if you include Chanel’s logo.
In fact, I don’t actually pay for therapy. Instead, I read Ed Sheeran’s tweets every morning and then repeat them 3o times over in front of the mirror as a daily affirmation.
We’re surprised Miley Cyrus let strangers babysit her dog. Has she not seen the new trailer for Seven Psychopaths?!? YELP.
Good to see Mac Miller is inspired by an extensive collection of music.
That was the day Conor Maynard retired music. After you get a sartorial compliment like this from Wiz Khalifa, you really can’t go up.

We do a lot of things we regret when we’re younger; like drinking soda at breakfast, recording a love sonnet for your favourite celebrity and uploading it to YouTube and maybe this. Max Harris recorded his very own song “High” but let’s not be too harsh okay? Comments have been disabled since uploading the video because of all the negativity.
At first, we weren’t sure if this was a parody or not but you can buy his song on iTunes and everything. The video isn’t quite Rebecca Black because it doesn’t have the same production value, but it’s up there.
Watch it here:
I’m still not sure whether this rapper Krispy Kreme is for serious. We knew he had Rebecca Black potential when he released that winning track “The Baddest,” but we wrote him off as some type of parody rapper. Now he’s back with “Best Friends.”
Yesterday Krispy Kreme also released an emotional video about fighting for your dreams. He warns you to stay away from drugs and alcohol and to avoid getting any girls pregnant because it will get in the way of your dreams. So just buckle down. “If your heart is in it and you have dreams of making the world a better place, no matter what you want to do, you don’t give up on your dreams, ever. And you fight and you crawl and you suffer for those dreams and you’ll achieve everything you ever want.”

Because Rebecca Black and her song ‘Friday’ hasn’t been dragged out long enough, her producer Patrice Wilson has come out with a sequel to song.
Due to the negativity of her single, Wilson, has come to help us realize how much anger and hate is present in the world with a new single titled ‘Happy’.
While the production here is good and has the right amount of cornyness, I would just like to tell Wilson to please stop. We get it. Rebecca Black has improved slightly and she has achieved her status of being famous.
Didn’t Rebecca Black learn from the 3 million plus dislikes she received for her viral music video “Friday?” Yes, yes she did. She learned that one bad song could hit Billboard’s Hot 100, get covered by Glee, score her a spot on Jay Leno and in Katy Perry’s music video, and result in her own record label.
Her new song “Sing It” isn’t “Friday” bad. That said, it’s not really good either. It’s a typical formulaic pop song that’s (surprise) illustrated with her and her friends biking, lip synching and dancing on the beach.
Still, you have to admire the girl for turning her viral hit into a career. It’s hard to remember that Black is only 14 years old and received a lot of hate and even death threats online. While most people would cower in the shadows, Black had an entrepreneurial spirit. So let’s give her a little credit.

Do you remember the time when reality shows were the only way to get some undeserved fame? Now it seems that everyone is trying to cash in with Youtube. While the internet has produced some indisputable stars like Darren Criss (of A Very Potter Musical fame) and Kreayshawn (“Gucci Gucci”), it has also produced some duds. Double Take, the latest viral video success (depending on your definition of success) inspired us to list the five worst music videos that we secretly love.
1) Lisa Gail Allred — 3 Second Rule
Listening to three seconds of this song is all need to know this is the best of the worst. Allred, who’s probably the oldest person on this list, took the original video down after receiving harsh comments and criticism for it. It’s been re-uploaded since, but why anyone would take time out of their day to film this in the first place is puzzling.
The terribly sung lyrics are about how Allred’s husband can only look at another woman for three seconds, a rule that “keeps her man in line.” It’s apparently such a universally important lesson that she felt compelled to teach it to a group of young lads (for her, anyway) decked out in white shirts and cowboy hats. Partly creepy and partly painful — with desperation sprinkled in for good measure — “3 Second Rule” is a song that no one would ever want to hear again. Or would you?
2) Brokencyde — Freaxxx
I don’t know what bothers me more, the overly auto-tuned dance music or the screaming. In reality, girls don’t want guys screeching into their ears asking to have sex with them. That’s probably the fastest way to a) get turned down and b) have a drink thrown into your face. Yet, Brokencyde seems to be living in a world of delusion. Not only does their video include obligatory cars and dancing girls, but someone dancing around in a pig costume. Are they trying to tell us they have some secret sexual fantasy? Girls of the world, run away.
3) Double Take — Hot Problems Read more…
Rebecca Black was interviewed this week, where she talked about her crazy 2011. She discussed that although some people loved her song “Friday,” other people hated it, and that hatred was passed along to her personally.
“I honestly don’t know. I mean I can understand not liking the video as everyone has their own opinions,” said Rebecca Black on the Today show. “Some people have gone to some crazy extremes which I don’t understand.”
Hated or not, nobody can deny Rebecca was popular in 2011. ”Rebecca Black” placed No. 1 on the Google Zeitgeist, the list of the fastest rising searches of the year, and “Friday” being named the most-watched YouTube video of 2011.
“They’re definitely great lists to be on,” Rebecca says. “I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet that this little kid from Orange County is on the top of Google Zeitgeist and YouTube.”
Do you think Rebecca will still be around in 2012?
Gawker compiled a list of the top viral videos of 2011, and even created a cool mashup video featuring all these videos into one 2 minute video.
2011 was certainly an amazing year for viral videos. Below is a list of those videos in order of popularity:
We know you’ve all been waiting in anticipation for Rebecca Black’s follow up to “Friday,” the masterpiece that warmed so many hearts earlier this year.
Well, good news from Perez Hilton: her next single, “Person of Interest”, has been released. Now, we can all drown our ears in autotune bliss.
Rebecca manages to showcase her limited talent with the use of two lines and autotune. She may have her own label, RB Records, but she doesn’t have anything else going for her, judging by this lacklustre of a song.
On the bright side, at least she’s through with singing the days of the week! Listen to “Person of Interest” below.
Rebecca Black is coming back with a new music video which is set to debut in November. Production started this week in Southern California.
The song is called “Person of Interest,” and Black sent out messages through Facebook and Twitter looking for people who wanted to star in her video. Black says the video is going to be amazing, saying “Best video shoot by far.” and that she “Had some great friends help me make it really special. can’t wait for y’all to see it!!! ”
Let’s see if Rebecca can make the transition to a serious artist from a YouTube sensation. We will have to wait and see until later this month!
While performing in Australia, Rebecca Black did an interview to warn people about YouTube.
“What you put on there is permanent, so make sure you have very much pride in what you put on,” Black told news.com.au.
“You never know what’s going to happen. It could get two views or it could get a million views.”
In the months since, “Friday” has gone to notch up more than 167 million views and Black has become the target of death threats.
Nevertheless, things seem to be working out for Rebecca.
Rebecca Black is proving she can last longer than 15 minutes. The YouTube star has been lured to Australia by a mobile phone company called Telstra.
Black tweeted, “I’m coming to Australia to perform live thanks to Telstra!! This is the best thing since microwaveable popcorn.”
The full details of what Black will be doing in “Down Under” haven’t been released.
This is the second piece of good news for Black, with the possibility of her releasing her debut album next month.
On Friday, Black asked her 158,000 YouTube subscribers, “So, you know what today is, right?” She later explains that “Friday” would be making its triumphant return to YouTube.
The video was forced to be taken down after Ark Music launched a copyright battle over “Friday.” It seems both sides have reached an agreement, and “Friday” will continue to live on YouTube.
So to celebrate, here’s “Friday”.
Rebecca Black’s debut album should be out for Halloween, reports Rolling Stone. However, she insists its nothing like “Friday.”
“The album is nothing like ‘Friday,” she says. “It’s got ballads, dance songs, everything.”
Next up for Black? “Grammys, touring, or movies,” she says, though there are no tour plans (or Grammy or movies, for that matter) in the works yet. “I’d love to be in Twilight, and I can’t be in Harry Potter anymore, which sucks.”
It will be interesting to see if Black can make the crossover from a joke to a credible artist.
“You knew it all along, I was afraid of you,” sings Bob; “Thought I couldn’t be myself, you tried to be my friend.”
Nobody can say Black’s song is the greatest lyrics ever, but they sound pretty cool coming from this Bob alike.
