Rebecca Black’s “Friday” pulled off YouTube


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ah, the delicious irony of this story.

It appears that YouTube pulled Rebecca Black’s viral video “Friday” off of its servers today … the day we need that jolt of bubblegum pop music the most.

What happened? PEOPLE says Black’s lawyers are accusing the producers at Ark Music Factory of “copyright infringement and unlawful exploitation” of Black’s publicity rights, and so the song will be down until the dispute is settled.

What will be bounce our heads to now? My vote: Selena Gomez’s “Who Says,” the current ear bug embedded in my skull.
