Now that he’s bought a chunk of recently sold MySpace, Justin Timberlake is eager to get his hands dirty relaunching the once-powerful social networking destination.
According to Timberlake’s longtime manager, the singer-turned-actor has got plenty of ideas about how to get MySpace back on track as a destination for music fans, including finding new talent. Manager Johnny Wright said that using the site to find the next great singer or group is just one of the concepts that got kicked around during the frantic two weeks of negotiations that went on before Specific Media’s deal with Timberlake to buy MySpace from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. was announced last week.
“Whether it becomes a talent competition or something like that, those are things that we will still flesh out,” Wright said, according to The Associated Press. “We definitely want to bring the industry back to MySpace to really look at the talented people that have put their faces there.”
