レディー・ガガも称賛したレベッカ・ブラック、YouTubeから姿を消す!?

動画投稿サイトYouTubeで注目を集める人はこれまで何人もいたが、今年上半期で最も話題となったのは13歳の少女レベッカ・ブラックだろう。だがここ最近になって、突如YouTubeから彼女の動画が削除されてしまった。

レベッカ・ブラックは今年の2月、「Friday」という自身の楽曲のミュージック・ビデオをYouTubeに投稿。"史上最悪の歌"などとこき下ろされながらも、ビデオは爆発的な話題を呼び、4月の時点で早くも8,000万回を超す再生回数を記録していた。このビデオのパロディーも次々と登場し、中でも、敬虔なキリスト教徒ヴァージョン「Sunday」も350万回以上、再生されている。

<PopEater>によると、今回の動画の削除は、レベッカのイメージを損なうのを防ぐためだとか。また、彼女とレーベルとの間で何らかの問題が生じていることも報じられている。実際のところ、削除の直前には、無料ではなく2ドル99セント(約240円)の課金制も試みていたが、批判が殺到し、すぐに撤回されていた。

彼女の歌声をめぐってはエンタメ界でも賛否両論あり、同じくティーンエイジャーのマイリー・サイラスは否定的だったが、逆にレディー・ガガは天才だと絶賛している。
