Flashback Friday: The Rebecca Black Edition! She Reflects On Her Unexpected Hit Friday Almost 4 Years Later!!

You know what we love today? It’s Friday!

Friday! Gotta get down on Friday!

Why? Cause everyone’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend?

NO.

Well, yeah, probably, but also it’s Flashback Friday!!

Today, we’re flashing all the way to almost four years ago, when 13-year-old released her viral “hit” song Friday.

Black, now 17, has come a long way since her original video rocketed her to internet infamy. She :

“It wasn’t really the kind of attention any 13-year-old girl wants. I made the song with no intention of it doing anything, and it was doing something.”

Yeah, we can imagine that must’ve been a very confusing and intense time in her life.

Thankfully for her, she’s got a sense of humor and not only embraced her sudden fame, she capitalized on it.

Now? She’s got plans for a future in music (and college too)! She said:

“I’ve been in the studio working on different songs. It’s definitely nothing like ‘Friday’ or anything I’ve put out in the past. It’s definitely pop, but I wouldn’t call it bubblegum pop. We’re really grasping from all different inspirations. There’s a little alternative influence, but at the same time, some of that really cool new alternative R&B. We’re in a super experimental phase right now, seeing what works best.”

Wow! That’s fantastic! We love that she’s growing as an artist!

So ready to flashback to Friday??

Then check out the video (below) and sing along at the top of your lungs!!

When did the proposal go down? Oh, right Lea won a SAG Award as part of OITNB‘s ensemble cast!

’s how Lea described that night:

“We met through . Her dear friend plays Leanne on the show. She introduced us and we’ve been together ever since. It’s been two and a half . I proposed to her. Everyone saw how emotional I was at the SAG awards. I was so filled with love. I turned to her at the Netflix party that night and asked her to marry me. We announced it to all of our friends there. We’ve keep it pretty hush-hush ever since. But I announced it onstage last night at Lincoln Center.”

On top of that, this newly engaged couple already has some pretty epic wedding plans:

“We definitely have a few ideas. Sandra Bernhardt will be marrying us. She’s a very close friend and she’s an officiant. We called her right away. And Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be my best man. We go way . We want to do it in the summer so my entire cast can be thereBut there’s not enough to get everything together for this summer. We’re thinking July 2016. We want a nice long, romantic engagement.”

​EXCLUSIVE! MTV Will Honor Martin Luther King Jr. By Airing In Black & White For The First Time Ever To Get Everyone Talking About Race

is an issue that this needs to be talked , and MTV is trying to get the conversation started.

This Martin Jr. Day, for the first in the network’s history, they’ll be all of their programs in black and from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The goal is jar audiences enough that they’ll begin having, what MTV is calling “The Talk – candid, confident and ‘color brave’ conversations on race and bias.” It’s all a part of their Look Different anti-bias campaign.

Throughout the day, monologues from people like Kendrick Lamar, Common, Big Sean, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Penn Badgley, Jordin Sparks, Pete Wentz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. John Lewis, and Sen. Cory Booker will air, to help get people to discuss our differences.

We have a first look at Penn Badgley’s clip for you (above)!

MTV’s President, Stephen Freeman, talked about this, saying:

“Millennials believe strongly in fairness, but they can also find it difficult to talk openly about race – to be not simply ‘color blind’ but ‘color brave.’ Our audience is looking for a way to bring the national conversation on race into their homes and this campaign will give them a forum to express true color bravery.”

We think this is a fantastic idea, because the key to tolerance is educating ourselves and learning to celebrate our differences!

Rush Limbaugh Doesn’t Want Idris Elba To Play James Bond Because He’s Black! See What He Said About The Casting HERE!

Well this is certainly surprising, Rush saying something awful!

Just kidding, we’re not even 0.000001% surprised by this statement.

The rumors swirling the future of the Bond franchise show that Idris could be the next actor to play the iconic spy.

[ Related: Idris Elba In Line To Be the Next James Bond?!? ]

Which is so freakin’ AWESOME and would be absolutely brilliant .

Except Rush doesn’t think so. He :

“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was. But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a Britain, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”

We just cannot even with that whole statement.

But wait, that’s not all he said!

He also went on to say that this casting choice is equal to Hollywood having George Clooney and Kate Hudson play President Barack and Michelle Obama.

Soooooo, yeah.

Except that the Obamas are the black President and Lady of the United States, something remarkable and historically important given the country’s history.

Meanwhile, being white isn’t an essential quality to James Bond. Being suave is. And Idris has that quality DOWN!

Besides, Daniel Craig isn’t Scottish either, and that — wait, why are we bothering trying to have a rational discussion with Rush Limbaugh?? LOLz!
