Life Imitates Art of the Day: Specific Media, which just unloaded the once-mighty MySpace off News Corp for a couch change sum of $35 million, has announced that one of the partners in the deal is none other than triple-threat Justin Timberlake, who memorably played Facebook’s first president, Sean Parker, in David Fincher’s The Social Network.
"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," Specific CEO Tim Vanderhook said in a statement. The financial specifics of Timberlake’s stake have not been released.
"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," the Grammy-winning musician was quoted by the statement as saying. "Myspace has the potential to be that place."
I don’t necessarily know what’s cool, but I’ll stake a billion dollars on it not being MySpace.
