Rebecca Black has said that "haters" don't have to listen to her music.

The 14-year-old shot to fame earlier this year with her debut track 'Friday', although the song was criticised by some people over its simple lyrics and use of autotune.

Black released her follow-up single, My Moment, this week. The song addresses some of the negativity the teenager has received over the past months but insists that she will continue to follow her dreams anyway.

Speaking on CBS's Early Show, the singer said: "My mum has been the best supporter through all of this. She's always been supportive of me ever since I was a little 2-year-old at dance recitals.

"It's hard because you have to deal with bullying being a teen anyways and now to have the world... That's not normal.

"Luckily the haters don't have to watch 'Friday' or 'My Moment'. They can turn it off if they want. They don't have to hate. It doesn't bother me anymore."

Black also had a message for her fans, saying: "I think the best advice I could ever give anybody is to not let [criticism] get to you. It's OK to be sad about it for a little but but don't let it change you permanently."

Black was recently nominated in the 'Choice Web Star' category at this summer's Teen Choice 2011. She has also been confirmed to attend the event, which airs August 7 at 8pm ET/PT on Fox.
