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.

This is all about $$$!!! The girl has no talent, but the label knows people will be curious enough to buy the first stuff they put out from her. I can't believe her parents aren't realizing what a joke this is and protecting her from more ridicule. She is just being used to cash in on the temporary media buzz. Disgusting.

She seriously does not look like 13...MUCH older looking. Good luck fending off the attention of creepy older men, Rebecca.

Sorry if am not jumping over with joy over this news if the girl was talented I would say congrats no problem but she is not and honestly am not going to pretend like she is. Who cares if she's cute that has nothing to do with music, or that's she's 13 yrs old. People either have talent or they don't this is going to girl need serious vocal lessons.

So sad to give so much attention to someone who has absolutely NO talent. Pathetic.

Mighty Mad, you might want to consider joining Mel Gibson in his anger management courses.

Hey Now    

Have any of you heard Rebecca sing anything else other than this song? She does have a voice. And she said it herself - she's not the best - but she's definitely not the worst. & part of the game today is getting noticed and you have to give her credit for that.

She should try a ballad next. Teenagers always love ballads and that would display her singing voice (which all you have to do is google to hear her sing on that 1 morning show - She sang a few lines & her voice was pretty)

Obviously in that business you don't have to be the greatest. Plus I like it- it's catchy and something w/the robotic/trance tone I really like.

FUN FUN FUN FUN

1st of all: maybe someone else had wrote the song and she sang it

2nd of all: Rebbeca is like 13 she wants to live her dream! doesnt she have the right to?

3rd of all; you cant just go up to her saying "GO CUT U R SELF BCUZ U MADE THE WORST SONG EVER"

QUIT BEING IMMATURE YOU PPL I AM 13 AND U GUYS R ACTING LIKE 10 YR OLDS

THIS CAN MAKE A BIG EFFECT ON HER.. SHE IS ON "WORLD STAGE" AT LEAST TRY PUT U R SELF IN HER PLACE

U DONT LIKE THE SONG U DONT LIKE IT STOP ACCUSING HER BCUZ OF IT ITS NOT HER PROBLEM

IF THIS IS HOW BIG PPL BULLY AND ACT WELL IM GLAD TO BE 13 I RATHER B THE WORST SINGER THAN FOOLISH MINDED

Ryan is being a whore and he is not being "nice" to her.....he is looking to make $ off of her fleeting fame. Ryan, seriously dude, you should have more self respect! I am shocked that you have such low self esteem that you would actually take on a 13 yr old who "sings" a song with lyrics like : "Yesterday was Thursday, And today it is Friday, Tomorrow it will be Saturday...." REALLY???? WTF.

And here I thought Willow Smith was pathetic. HELP! Ryan-- you need a vacation, obviously. Go refresh/recharge your brain.
