The now 22-year-old reflected on the damage and fall out the success of her hit on social media on Monday and said she would like to go back and give a message to her younger selves.
"9 years ago today a music video for a song called “friday” was uploaded to the internet," Rebecca explained. "above all things, i just wish i could go back and talk to my 13 year old self who was terribly ashamed of herself and afraid of the world. to my 15 year old self who felt like she had nobody to talk to about the depression she faced. to my 17 year old self who would get to school only to get food thrown at her and her friends."
Black detailed that the effects of "Friday" did not stop with school bullying but affected her as she tried to pursue a career in music.
"to my 19 year old self who had almost every producer/songwriter tell me they’d never work with me. hell, to myself a few days ago who felt disgusting when she looked in the mirror!"
