It’s been a long time since “Friday.”

Remember “Friday,” the viral 2011 music video where a teenage girl named Rebecca Black sings about how much “fun fun fun fun” she’s going to have over the weekend?

Well, that girl is all grown up now and reflecting on life since her viral fame. 

Black, 22, took to Instagram on Monday (exactly 9 years since “Friday” was uploaded) to open up about the low self-esteem, depression and bullying she dealt with following the release of her widely-ridiculed song. She said she would’ve like to talk to her younger selves.

Black wrote that she wished she could talk to herself at 13, when she was “terribly ashamed of herself and afraid of the world.” She said that when she was 15, she felt that she couldn’t talk about her depression, and at 17, kids at school threw food her friends and her.

Black, who is currently a YouTuber and singer, said she also experienced career setbacks because of “Friday.”

She wrote that at 19, she had “almost every producer/songwriter tell me they’d never work with me.”

Black wrote that she’s making an effort to think positively and accept that “Friday” does not define her.

“you are not defined by any one choice or thing,” she added. “time heals and nothing is finite. it’s a process that’s never too late to begin. and so, here we go! this might be a weird thing to post but the honesty feels good if nothing else.”
