Lead[edit]

Hi all, including user:MPFitz1968. LEADCITE doesn't prohibit citations in the lead, sure. But these same facts are repeated in the article proper. I don't see why they need to be up top.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Rebecca_Black&oldid=prev&diff=623217270 -- Zanimum (talk) 20:42, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

The sentence that is in question: "Her mother paid $4,000 to have the single and an accompanying music video put out as a vanity label through the record label ARK Music Factory." I agreed with the edit made by user PjeterPeter [1], which removed that sentence and the sources that back it. A lack of explanation of the edit led to a revert, but if the one reverting took time to read that sentence and see its relevance in the lead section, I'm thinking it would not have been reverted. A similar sentence later in the body is okay, but I don't think it's necessary on top. The lead should establish why Black is notable, and talk about her mom paying money to put her debut song out is a bit too specific, and does little to explain notability. So, I can go ahead and remove that sentence, with a sufficient explanation. MPFitz1968 (talk) 21:03, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

I'm sorry, that's just the worst picture ever. And I hate Rebecca Black but did they really have to use a picture that makes her look 40? PLease change it... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.126.4.113 (talk) 21:24, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Sure only if you have some free non copy-written pictures that show how Rebecca looks as of recent. Just because its on the internet does not mean nobody owns the rights to the pictures so we cant just go and post anything here like Wikipedia owns it. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 22:44, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 6 October 2014[edit]

I would like to change her picture to this https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQZIXLWogX2LNZVlyz1TXyROnakelJQnbQCDmSZK95Df1QK80It5FxSJMty

Okay here is what you need to ask yourself first:
1. Is the image free to use? Please read: (WP:COPYRIGHT), and (Wikipedia:FAQ/Copyright).
2. Is the image recent? Having a recent image of Rebecca would be better than having an older one.
If the image is of free use then feel free to upload it here: [2] if it is not free it will be swiftly deleted. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 23:23, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Biographical Information[edit]

Regarding "As of June 2013, her grandmother lives in Illinois, and her aunts and uncles live around the U.S." Is there a particular reason why this is relevant?

No, I removed it. Beach drifter (talk) 08:03, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
