The kids are fools. Shoulda donated 50%, deducted tax, channeled the other 50 to an offshore bank in the Caymans. She'll never be a pop star if she carries on like this.

Turns out she donated it all to Japanese tsunami relief. The kids are alright?

Honestly, it depends. The optomist in me says that her thought process lead her to realize that this is likely a fluke, but whatever happens in her future, her (presumably) upper middle class or wealthier background will probably open a few doors for her and she'll probably be allright, and so it is reasonable to give the money from her good fortune to help those who had an equally flukeish missfortune. The pesimist says that she assumes this is the start of a long, successful music career and so giving away her money now is irellevent next to the millions of dollars she's sure to make.

Or she is just a reasonably good person? I think the former is the closest but also I doubt she thought about it that well. It may even be that she thinks it will further her career (think Bono).

What would you have done if you had come into a million-ish dollars when you were 13?

I would've bought a nice house in the mountains.

also probably the house thing, depends how much waiting time I had between learning about the money and actually receiving it, because you know, thinking in advance about things, it alters results

an entire vat of floam.  shiiiiiiit.

Also, in regards to the video, whose idea was it to use that creepy "sketch" effect on iMovie or whatever sad editing program $2000 dollars will get you?  It looks like dogshit on the holocaust.

EDIT: Another thing I noticed.  If these kids are thirteen, who is driving?

Considering my mindset at the age of 13, if a million dollars had come my way I'd also have given a lot of it to charity. Idealism ranked higher in my mind than life goals back then, maybe it does for her as well.

Do I even want to venture in to knowing what "Pearl Harbour" stuff has been said?

Well, even if it is artistically horrendous, the millions of haters can now say "Well, actually that was very good of you. Well done".

Seriously, fuck Band Aid. Fuck getting real singers in like Chris Martin, Robbie Williams and Bono, lets just get auto-tuned 13 year olds - people love to hate it.

Slate looks at how much she's probably actually made so far

not quite a millionaire but from chasing links through that article onto the others, she's made something near $50,000. Its awesome if all or most of that is going towards the tsunami relief.

Guys, if we pool $2,000, get a 13 year old, we could totally make some dough. Although we'll have to make it clear that we're not a paedophile collective.

I don't really care if she donated the money under torture, frankly.

I wouldn't have done it, especially not at her age.

yeah what the fuck guys, the cynical veneer b.s. is kind of inappropriate in the face of something that's probably if it's true going to directly help save lives

Okay so that's one scholarly analysis.

honestly regardless of what she was doing with the money I think this all got pretty heinous. I mean, the first couple jokes were funny, but it quickly reached a point where I'm wondering what kind of assholes are this intent on picking on a little girl. Especially considering all the things they don't care about, why do people care so much about a teenage girl's dorky youtube video?

the internet is also basically the mass mob of 2011, i bet far less of those people would have responded so harshly if it was going to take place in a venue closer to a one on one exchange, or even in one where there'd have to be some identifying markers included. not saying there aren't also a lot of grown adults who are absolutely pathetic low life cowards who for inexplicable reasons derive a lot of joy out of insulting young girls (see: my days working in food service as a teenager) but anonymity and group mentalities will also consistently bring out the worst in people. them's the breaks

I'd post a new thread, but I think the context contained in the rest of the thread is important to understanding this tweet from Rebecca Black 9 years after the "Friday" phenomenon.
