Lady Gaga: Rebecca Black 'Is a Genius'
"Anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of shit," Gaga says of the 13-year-old in an interview with Google.
Rebecca Black has another famous fan: Lady Gaga.
At a Musicians@Google event, Gaga stuck up for the 13-year-old singer -- who has been widely mocked on the internet for her song, "Friday." (Watch the video below around the 48-minute mark for the comment.)
"I think it's fantastic," Gaga said of Black's fame through YouTube, where she has more than 35 million streams.
"I say Rebecca Black is a genius and anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of shit," Gaga went on. Over the weekend, Simon Cowell defended her as well.
Black says she has been cyber bullied for her song, which she recorded after her mom paid $2,000 to L.A.-based Ark Studios.
