HATE-WATCH: Jimmy Fallon plays the song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” as intro to Michele Bachmann on his show

Glenn Beck Comments . . .

For your disaaproval, here was the song . . .

Stephen Colbert’s and Jimmy Fallon’s rendition of Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ song

Rebecca Black (age 13) has struck a chord with her song about ‘Friday’.

As of today, her song has had more than 80,000,000 views on YouTube since the video was posted a few weeks ago. That’s 80 MILLION views!

Here Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon try to take advantage of the viral Web tail wind that has propelled Rebecca Black to such stratospheric heights with their own rendition of ‘Friday’. I’m really not much of a Colbert fan, but this is funny and he does a surprisingly good job:

In case you somehow missed it, here’s the original Rebecca Black video that’s caused such a fracas . . .

The ‘Friday’ song reached a peak rank #17 on iTunes. As of this writing, it ranks #31 on iTunes.

Here’s how Bob Dylan would sing the ‘Friday’ song . . .

For some reason ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ decided to attack this 13-year-old middle schooler by asking her: Why do people hate your song so much?

I’ve become a big fan of Rebecca Black.

I don’t think many 13-year-olds are “partying, partying, partying, yeah!” — but it’s just a song.  It doesn’t have to make sense.  I also knew that Sunday comes after Saturday, but there are lots of hit songs out there with dumber lyrics than this.

It’s a song, not an essay.

I don’t care what the haters and mockers say. I  like the song.

It’s catchy and gets into your brain.

Looks like Rebecca Black’s laughing all the way to the bank.  Forbes magazine reports that she stands to make more than $1,000,000 from the ‘Friday’ song.

She’s sure done something right, as the likes of Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallow desperately try to ride in her wake to get some of her spinoff publicity.

How much did they spend on this elaborate production of her song — no doubt designed to maximize their own views on YouTube, and hoping their version will catch some of the viral Web tailwind she has?

Rebecca Black says she plans to donate all her profits to the tsunami victims in Japan and to her school.

What a great kid!

Personally, I hope she keeps most of the money.  She’ll need it for college. Donating some of it is fine and good.
