2011 was full of many surprises and media guru Jess Todtfeld has given us a list of his top five surprising rises to the top of the year.
And it all starts with the annoying, yet now explosively rich Rebecca Black.
#5 Rebecca Black, an overnight internet sensation with her “Friday” song that got her on the Tonight Show, then allegedly making a million dollars, and giving it to charity. This shows the power of social media and that a-13-year-old unknown can be famous worldwide and overnight…and rich. This is something many others who appeared often in the media where unable to do.
Check out the top four selected by Jess Todtfeld below.
