"Confession of the day: I actually like the new single," tweets one, while another opines, "When is this girl gonna realize she CANNOT sing?"

Rebecca Black debuted her new music video, "My Moment," on Monday, and people had plenty to say about it.

The song was scheduled to premiere Monday night on Entertainment Tonight but hit the web a few hours earlier than planned.

“Shh… don’t tell! But my video is up on my channel,” Black tweeted two hours earlier than expected. “Check it out NOW!!!” (Watch the video below.)

ANALYSIS: Rebecca Black's 'Friday' Taken Off YouTube

Black first gained fame when her "Friday" video went viral earlier this year, and it seems people were eager to check out her latest song as the aspiring singer's YouTube channel -- which has more than 400,000 followers -- quickly crashed (it was soon up and running again, though).

Those who did check it out hit Twitter to weigh in with their thoughts, making "Rebecca Black" a trending topic on the site Monday afternoon.  Here are some of their reactions:
