Now, she's put up a huge billboard in Hollywood, congratulating herself for topping 100 million YouTube views in little more than two months. Judging from the preponderance of negative (in many cases, horrified) reactions to the song, it seems no one else was going to thank her in such a public fashion, so she had to do it herself.
