Rebecca Black has been pulled out of school due to bullying.

The 14-year-old YouTube star, who shot to fame with her viral hit 'Friday', confessed that she has been the victim of classmates' taunts about her newfound popularity - a daily occurrence which eventually led her to pursue homeschooling.

"When I walk by they'll start singing 'Friday' in a really nasally voice. Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'" Black recalled in an interview with Nightline.

The 'My Moment' singer went on to say that while she may be free of the criticism of her peers, she still faces endless negativity from people online, who post hateful comments and spread untrue rumours about her.

"Waking up to a rumour that you're pregnant is not fun. It's just frustrating, because I mean, I'm still, like, excited over my first kiss," she said.

Black recently joked that she could donate all of her organs to kids and would still have "haters".

She recently joined Katy Perry on stage at the Los Angeles date of Perry's 'California Dreams' tour for a duet of 'Friday'.
