YouTube sensation Rebecca Black, 14, says she has left school because of constant bullying. The "Friday" star says, "When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice. Or, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'"

Now, her mom, Georgina Marquez, teaches her at home. "It's hard to go to school when you are so famous and to have kids constantly making fun of what's going on."

Rebecca, who just won Choice Web Star at the Teen Choice Awards, says, "I've had a lot of experience with not being liked. I think if I hadn't had to deal with that in the past then I totally would have handled this differently and I would have gone down in burning flames. But I've learned that you just can't let it get to you."
