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.

I don't get it. Hasn't anyone actually read the comments on youtube or for that matter here? I'd bet most of them are people beating their head against their monitors because SHE CAN'T SING. Are they basing signing her off of how many hits her youtube had? Because I'd also bet that most of those hits were one person saying to another "you have to hear how bad this is". I understand she is 13 but old enough to know that her talent does not lie in singing.

#82 "I'm gonna see how many youtube views Rebecca now has on that song."

I would have also copied and pasted your other comment on #79 but there was so much nonsense that my computer would not allow.

So what exactly does the number of views have to do with someone's great (sarcasm) auto-tuned voice? Considering she has been talked about on alot of media platforms of course people are going to check it out. But, just because those numbers are high does not mean anything except that people watched the video. Anyone with $2,000 can do the same thing. You say in #79 "Plus I like it- it's catchy and something w/the robotic/trance tone I really like." I guess with you saying it's catchy means you know the days of the week especially FRIDAY (you know that comes after Thursday and is before Saturday). To me personally, the only thing catchy is her singing through her nostrils hardcore. Now I can agree with the robotic comment-auto-tune works on anyone. The song, however, DOES NOT sound like Trance and where you came up with that makes no sense unless you are really drunk and tone deaf. Why don't you search for Paul Oakenfold-Now that's Trance.

Thank god for freedom of speech. I would go on and on but I just wasted about 2 min of my time even writing and responding that I won't anymore. have fun listening to your new Anthem-especially since it's Friday. If you are old enough to drive you should play it real loud on your speakers lol :)

She cannot sing, but who says she is going to have a recording career. You have to break into the business somehow. Look at Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. This girl is no worse live than they are, and she is every bit as cute IMO. The industry will find some place for her.

If you didn't care you wouldn't have just spent 5 minutes thinking of me. :)

I hardly ever get on the bully bandwagon.

And I have posted lots of stuff around here on TMZ so many have an idea of my age. Guess you'll just have to keep wondering. Ain't that some sh*t?

Seacrest wouldn't know talent if it fell out of a tree and smashed him on the head. He should stick to what he knows best. Being a very annoying twit on AI.

Uhh, WHERE'S THE TALENT here? Seriously, I hear absolutely none, all I hear is the sound of mommy and daddy's money jingling.

Lame.

My baby sister is MUCH more talented than her and has a video coming out that will blow this one out of the water.
