Lady Gaga Says Rebecca Black Is A 'Genius' During Google Visit

Rebecca Black has another famous fan: Lady Gaga.

At a Musicians@Google event on Tuesday, Gaga stuck up for the 13-year-old singer -- who has been widely mocked on the internet for her song, "Friday." (Watch the video below around the 48-minute mark for the comment.)

"I think it's fantastic," Gaga said of Black's fame through YouTube, where she has more than 35 million streams.

"I say Rebecca Black is a genius and anyone that's telling her she's cheesy is full of sh--," Gaga went on, although she noted that she hasn't seen the video. Over the weekend, Simon Cowell defended her as well.

Black says she has been cyber bullied for her song, which she recorded after her mom paid $2,000 to L.A.-based Ark Studios.

According to estimates, she's making about $27,000 a week from iTunes sales and YouTube streams though.

During her long visit at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, dubbed "Google Goes Gaga," the singer plugged Google Moderator, a tool her fans use to submit text or video questions.

"At Google, we've seen Gaga build her career by embracing technology, as well as constantly innovating for her fans" said the company's Marissa Mayer.
