Well no sh*t he didn`t notice her, did her parents have two grand in their hand. It`s actually pretty sad that she is the one he got to interview, no one else would probably talk to him.

I totally believe he wrote that piece of garbage in thirty minutes, it shows. Too long, didn`t finish.

Was the Conan show ever truly involved? And if so was this song mentioned?

I took a big fat crap this morning. I`m sure it`s a more interesting story than this.

He wrote Friday in a day and this song for the Conan show in a day. They both reflect the time he spent on them too. I like how he`s so jazzed about it- but it`s so clear that he just wanted his name and song on the Conan show for press. What a d-bag.

He`s very proud of being able to come up with songs on the fly. I don`t think that counts as a talent, though, if you just have the words "I`m on the Conan show" that a person just said and you add "Everybody make some noise."

Lots of people hate Rebecca Black, I don`t have a problem with her, she`s a 13 year old girl trying to live every 13 year old girl`s dream, I don`t see what`s wrong with that. It`s not her fault her song became a viral hit. What does anger me however is this. It`s just bizzare. This company take gullible teenagers with rich parents, and charge ludicrous amounts to write a sh-t song for them. The sad thing is, this sort of stuff is becoming popular. Most `teen pop sensations` are nothing more than attractive rich kids singing a meaningless song over autotune and a hip-hop beat - it`s so shallow. And people notice this, and think this is the route into it, and hand over their money to receive more or less the same song as the 20 other people who paid for it. Popular music has reached the point where it has become so overproduced, manufactured and saturated it has lost all meaning, and profiteering companies that encourage this make me sick.

6 minutes I`ll never get back...

Somebody please tell Patrice Wilson to stop writing songs!

Or, you can just shoot him...

So Friday was totally a fluke. He shouldn`t have been so obvious about trying to horn in on the Conan Show.
