Rebecca Black: making money or not?

Opinions differ.

The Supajam bloggers have been dissecting the internet pop hit that is Rebecca Black, but there’s some interesting news today.

But now Billboard predicts that she in fact sold less than 40,000 downloads and might only have earned $25,000. We say only because, while that’s a year’s salary for some people, it’s not what you want after making 33 million hits on YouTube.
