Teen music artist Rebecca Black has been forced to leave her high school in Anaheim, Calif. after being bullied relentlessly for her hit single "Friday," ABC News reports.
Black's mother, a teacher, pulled her daughter from school and is now homeschooling her to avoid bullies and focus on her career, she told Nightline.
Black's "Friday" music video went viral in March, and since then, the artist says she's been the target of school bullies who would tease her about the single.
"When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice," she told Nightline. "Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'"
Black also received death threats in April, which elicited local police investigations.
"It really sucks being bullied," Black says in a behind-the-scenes look of her new music video, "This is My Moment," last month. "But one thing that you can't do is let them stop you from doing what you want to do."
"Primetime Nightline: Celebrity Secrets" airs the full interview with Black tonight on its special, "Underage and Famous."
