Rebecca Black's "Friday" Now a $2.99 Rental on Youtube

Do You Rent Music Videos Online?

MTV doesn't play as many videos as they used to, but you can still head to places like iTunes and YouTube to see your favorite star's latest releases. Katy Perry just released her video for "Last Friday Night" with a big cameos from famous stars, including an appearance by none other than YouTube sensation Rebecca Black. As you may recall, Rebecca Black became famous (and famously spoofed) for her song "Friday," which some have called the worst video ever made. If you haven't seen it, you can still check out "Friday" online as a YouTube rental, but you're going to have to pay. That's right — to watch "Friday" in its entirety, you now have to shell out $2.99. No more rocking out in shame for free.

Although I still like watching some music videos (Lady Gaga has had a string of highly-entertaining episodes), I've never paid to watch them online, and don't think I ever would. But what about you — do you rent music videos online?

Update: Looks like Rebecca Black's "Friday" video has been pulled due to a copyright dispute. A YouTube Spokesperson stated: "YouTube takes copyright infringement very seriously. When we receive a complaint alleging that a video infringes another person or company's copyrights, we remove that video. Users who believe that a video was removed in error can appeal the copyright takedown."
