I am thinking about getting a MySpace account because Justin Timberlake bought it

(WSJ)–”This time it may be different. Joining Specific Media is Mr. Sexxyback himself, pop singer Justin Timberlake. Timberlake, who coincidentally had a major part in last summer’s Facebook film “Social Network”, has invested an undisclosed amount in the company.”

 

Look it, MySpace sucks and everybody knows it.  I have never been on there, but I hear its for pedophiles, rapists, prostitutes, and musicians.  Not exactly my crowd.  Having said that, I am totally creating an account now.  Justin Timberlake is just a winner.  SNL is terrible.  Haven’t watched it in years, but Timberlake hosts and it suddenly is awesome again.  The guy dominates everything he puts his hands on. He’s obviously a social media expert after starring in “The Social Network”.  So I am going to dive head first into the new MySpace. Zuckerberg better watch his ass.

 

PS: NewsCorp bought MySpace 6 years ago for $580m and sold it for $35m.  That’s the worst investment ever, right?  Has any company ever lost 555 million dollars in that short of a time period?  Timberlake will probably sell it back to them for a billion in like 2 years.
