Regardless of whether you love or loathe the music of Internet sensation Rebecca Black, the “Friday” singer was a perfect choice to host the O Music Awards Fan Army Party at Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino on Thursday (April 28). After presenting the Fan Army FTW award to Tokio Hotel, we caught up with the viral phenom to find out what she thought of MTV’s first online awards show and how she’s adjusting to her newfound fame.
Although Rebecca’s overnight success has garnered endless hate and even death threats in the past few months, she was overjoyed to have opportunities like hosting the O Music Awards bash.
“It was so much fun,” she told us. “There was great energy everywhere, and it’s awesome to see all the fans.”
The Fan Army FTW award was the most personal award of the night, based solely on the love and support of an artist’s fans. While the haters might be pretty loud, Black said she has just as many fans who are already talking about forming their own Rebecca Black army of support.
“I’ve heard someone say, ’Let’s call ourselves this,’ ’Let’s call ourselves that,’ but I don’t think there’s an official one,” she said of her yet-unnamed fanbase.
While her fans figure it out, Rebecca said she’s still adjusting to being a recognizable face in the public eye.
“It’s kind of awkward, because I’ll be walking and I’ll have no makeup on, and I just don’t look good,” she laughed. “So they’ll be like, ’Oh my gosh, you’re Rebecca Black!’ And I’m like, ’Ummm yes!’ ”
