Some people have also been pointing out how the lyrics are contradicting.
The chorus part goes:
Ne~ Kimi wa mou tomodachi janai (Hey, you're not my friend anymore)
Tomodachi yori daiji na hito (You're now a person who's more important to me than a friend)
Itsumade mo soba ni ite ne My friend (Please stay by my side forever, my friend)
Comments on this:
"They probably just made these lyrics without thinking it over too much."
"Tomodachi janai, but my friend!? wtf"
"Maybe Gouriki thinks of that person as more than a friend, but that person doesn't think any more of her so they can never be more than friends."

- 口パクな上にダンスも微妙なAKBは論外だが剛力もももクロもあんな酷い歌声晒すなら口パクのがまだマシだってその分パフォーマンスに力入れればいいやんAKB who lip-sync and dance terribly are out of the question,
but I actually think that Gouriki and MomoClo should just opt for lip-syncing too instead of embarrassing themselves with that terrible singing. They should then put in more effort in their performances.

Lo and behold, this is the power of live singing!

Arashi's huge accident
Nakai of SMAP's consistent accidents
Tsunku's huge accident
And now, Gouriki's huge accident.
Something tells me that these live singing accidents eventually lead to huge success, so it just means that live singing is much, much better.

- ファンでもあの歌じゃ買う気にもならんのに誰が買うんだろｗオリコン捏造と自社買いだけはやめてほしいI don't think that even her fans would think about buying her song. Who would then? LOL

This was probably what her agency has been aiming for.
A "put her to shame" style of promotion.

I suddenly feel sorry for her.

It was obvious that she lip-synced midway through, though.
