Last week, Specific Media welcomed Justin Timberlake as part-owner and the sole creative force driving their effort to revive the indigent Myspace.
Accordingly, Justin’s manager, Johnny Wright, told New York Daily News he has high hopes Justin’s involvement will help bring the music focus back to the social networking platform.
“There is a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favorite entertainers, listen to music... and just connect,” Justin, The Social Network actor, told PopEater. “Myspace has the potential to be that place.”
While PopEater reported on a rumor, Myspace will be used to generate a talent competition, but neither Justin nor Johnny divulged any further details of exactly what they have in store.
Will Justin be able to revamp Myspace and make Specific Media’s $35 million purchase worthwhile? Only time will tell.
