Somehow the internet gods think Justin Timberlake is qualified to save MySpace. The once popular social networking site was bought out by online advertising network Specific Media. Since the acquisition, Timberlake has been brought on board to develop the new strategy and creative direction of the website.
Ok Justin Timberlake. We let you do your acting thing. We courtesy laugh every time you force your way onto SNL, but now you’re supposed to save MySpace? Where do we draw the line Timberlake?
Specific Media wants MySpace to focus on music and make it a place for music to be presented online where fans can interact with their favorite bands and musicians.
Apparently JT is the man to shape the new MySpace, “There’s a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favorite entertainers, listen to music, watch videos, share and discover cool stuff and just connect,”
Justin said in a statement, “Art is inspired by people and vice versa, so there’s a natural social component to entertainment. I’m excited to help revitalize MySpace by using its social media platform to bring artists and fans together in one community.”
CEO Tim Vanderhook has a lot of faith in Timberlake, “We look forward to partnering with someone as talented as Justin Timberlake who will lead the business strategy with his creative ideas and vision for transforming MySpace.”
Does MySpace know he only played Napster creator in a movie? In real life he sings in falsetto and puts his d-ck in a box.
