Going through the trials and tribulations of school can be difficult, which is exactly why the news of Rebecca Black quitting school has been making headlines.

The very quick rise in popularity of Black's 'Friday' video has led the budding singer to be a victim of bullying. Being constantly harassed for her new found fame and the lyrics to her song has led to Rebecca Black quitting school. She is now being home schooled by her mom after leaving middle school.

Not one to let this deter her, she shares her excitement for being featured in Katy Perry's 'Last Friday Night' video in a recent interview with ABC.
