Rebecca Black: There Will Be No "Sunday" After "Saturday," Didn't Get Paid For "Friday"

Rebecca Black says while her song "Saturday" is getting attention following her 2011 AutoTuned-to-death single "Friday," there are no plans for a "Sunday" tune down the road.

In an interview Thursday with Toronto radio station KISS 92.5's Roz & Mocha Black -- now a junior in high-school and just 16-years-old -- quickly quashed any thought of another day of the week track. "I don't think there's going to be any trilogy thing going on," she said.

Black said the idea for the follow-up tune -- which was released on December 3rd -- was after Black considered the idea of self-deprecating herself in the "Saturday" track. "I was toying around with the idea because one of my favorite things to do is make fun of myself and I've gotten to the point where I just wanted to do something fun," she said. "I just kind of took it and ran with it."

When asked about why she risked putting herself back out into the spotlight and thus open for as much criticism as she endured with "Friday," Black said she wanted to do it for herself.

"I think after going through something like that at such a young age and having a lot of time to like think about what I want to do next and do I really want to even go back out there," she said. "I just got to the point where I just didn't care what anyone thought. I don't care about the hate, it's going to be there no matter what I do."

The producer and writer behind "Friday," Patrice Wilson, wasn't involved with the creation of "Saturday" although Black didn't discuss any of it for "legal reasons." Later on, Black said she has "no idea how much money I should've made" from the "Friday" song. When pressed as to a ballpark figure, Black said it's "in the hundred thousands," not counting iTunes. Digitally the song went gold so that amount would've been much more.

Although she said "Friday" definitely isn't "the smartest and most intellectual thing out there," she said she empathizes with teen singers and pop stars who are getting both the praise and the harsh criticism. "I'm one of the most internet savvy people by now and I can't help but feel for them like when they're getting backlash or anything like that especially," she said. "Because these girls keep getting younger and younger."
