Rebecca Black has revealed that she is working on a debut album, which she hopes will silence her "upsetting" critics.

The 13-year-old, who became a global phenomenon after posting her single 'Friday' on YouTube, confirmed plans to release a follow-up track entitled 'LOL', taken from an LP that she is working on with Flying Pig Productions.

The Sun quotes Black as warning her detractors: "You think you are bringing me down and making me not want to do this any more. But you're making me stronger and want to do it even more.

"Here I am in a studio working on my debut album. I'm going to prove you wrong. Just like 'Friday', the new songs are pretty catchy."

Despite pressing ahead with her unlikely rise to stardom, Black confessed to struggling with "bullies" and "negative Nancies" when the song first started racking up hits.

She added: "It was really upsetting. These people don't know me and it really hurt at first. I cried a little bit, I'm only 13.

"I thought, 'Should I not have done this? What have I done wrong?' People were saying, 'You're the worst singer, this is the worst song'. They criticised my voice and the lyrics.

"But I call them negative Nancies. They can try to rain on my parade, but as far as I'm concerned they are raining on their own parade. Just face it - it is a catchy song. It gets stuck in my head."

Black has already garnered a number of celebrity fans, including Simon Cowell and Lady GaGa.
