Everybody has heard Rebecca Black’s song at one point in their lives. Rebecca for her 14th birthday asked to make a music video. The song is called “Friday,” and is catchy but very annoying. Today the video has more than a hundred million views. Rebecca had a quick rise to fame at such a young age and ended up dropping out of school due to bullying.

Alex Lee is the famous Alex from Target. A photo of Alex went viral on twitter that featured him just doing his job, which ended up breaking the internet. He started the work so and so works here trend all over twitter. He then appeared on CNN and Ellen.

But she became viral on almost all social media platforms, her video was featured everywhere showing her popular phrase “catch me outside how about dat.” Now Danielle is making quite a lot of money and has just signed a deal with a major television company to make a reality show.
