Rebecca Black Gets Career Boost From Ryan Seacrest

3/25/2011 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

13-year-old Rebecca Black -- the phenom behind that "Friday" song -- has a good mentor, as in  Ryan Seacrest ... because R.S. just helped Rebecca sign with a big music manager.

Rebecca Black

Rebecca did Ryan's radio show on Thursday, and afterward Ryan realized Rebecca and her mom were overwhelmed by the sudden burst of attention.

Sources tell us ... Ryan hooked Rebecca up with Debra Baum, a manager with DB Entertainment. 

Rebecca has now signed with DB.

Awesome! Talentless Douche bag hooks up another talentless douche bag! Which is most likely how his career started. WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!

Seriously???? What has happened to the music industry? It used to be about talent and real love for the music. Now it's all about the promotion.

I'm just kidding with Jason, I appreciate his attempt at arguing FOR the young lady. He was very convincing at displaying his belief in her right to violently attack anyone she wishes. I understand he was simply allowing Harvey to debate the issue with him. Sorry Jason for making fun out how intensely laser beams of death shot out of your eyeballs while you beat Harvey with your hammer of justice. Lawyer on!

Rebecca's father MUST be F U CK IN G Ryan, we all know he likes that, for him to give that talentless girl anything that has to do with music. SHE CAN'T SING to save her life!!!!! SHE IS WORSE THAN MY CAT WHILE IN HEAT!!!! My cat could probably pass for Celine Dion with the kind of autotunes that Rebecca Black recceived. Anyways, can't watch idol anymore because Ryan has lost credibility...Good luck with that, and I can be interested again on Rebecca black once she goes to rehab!

Signing a management deal with Debra Baum is hardly a career boost and I predict we'll soon not be hearing much about Rebecca Black. Her reighn of terror will be done by Monday (which follows Sunday, which comes after Saturday...)
