Internet sensation Rebecca Black has quit high school after growing tired of the taunts of classmates and bullies.
 
The singer, who became an overnight sensation when she posted a video of herself singing teenage party anthem Friday online, is reportedly studying at home.
 
She tells ABC News, "When I walk by they'll (classmates) start singing Friday in a really nasally voice. Or, you know, they'll be like, 'Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'"

Black's mother has also said that home schooling will give her daughter more time to focus on her career and that the family have also hired a bodyguard to protect her safety.
