Gnesa: YouTube’s next Rebecca Black?

The singer's self-produced music video for "Wilder" gives Black's "Friday" a run for its completely unlistenable money.

She looks like Snooki, sings like Lana Del Rey, and has the potential to eclipse Rebecca Black as the most insufferable woman to rack up millions and millions of views on YouTube.

Her name is Gnesa, she’s allegedly from New York, and she’s awful—awful as they come. And chances are you won’t be able to take your eyes off her.

Gnesa has interjected herself upon our earlobes by way of the recently released YouTube music video for “Wilder,” a woefully off-putting club banger that comes with all the production value of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula’s “Innocence of Muslims.”

You hear that sound? It’s like screeching tires running over a cat’s tail.

Unfortunately for you and me and everybody with discerning ears and heartbeats and values, “Wilder” is exactly the type of song that could get huge—like, Rebecca Black “Friday” huge. It’s so miserable that everybody has. to. know. about. it.

And thus, it likely won’t be long before you find your friends drunk in a kitchen, late at night wearing socks and boxer shorts while cooking a plate of spaghetti and singing “I want to be moved by the feelings. I just want to follow the feeling. Don’t stop me. I can be better. You can go a little bit wilder.”

It will be miserable, but it will happen.

Gnesa, darling, you win this round. And Internet—you magnificent, magnanimous and massively sharable beast—you lose.

You and all the rest of us.
