    Timberlake: Forget Facebook, I'm Backing MySpace!

    6/29/2011 3:50 PM PDT by TMZ Staff

    At least one person still believes in MySpace -- because Justin Timberlake just purchased a considerable stake in the sinking ship.



    Timberlake has not revealed how much he's invested in the company -- which News Corp. sold off today for somewhere between $30-40 million.

    According to the official announcement, Justin -- who starred in "The Social Network" -- will "play a major role in developing the creative direction and strategy for [MySpace] moving forward."

    JT released his own statement -- saying, "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 ... MySpace has the potential to be that place."

    Has ... had ... what's the difference?

    I don't understand a single word
    of what I am saying.”

    Hey JT. Fire all those nerds who made all those changes that fucked it up & had me and all my friends jump ship. Go back to how it was in 2005 when it was THE Social Network and we might go back.




    If it's the right direction - swim upstream.

    He's got his work cut out for him, because MySpace is a mess.

    Seriously. I wouldn't be surprised if he loses money on this deal.

    Myspace is like an abandoned amusement park. I doubt anything he does is going to help it.

    If anybody could save it, I think he might have enough pull.

    That said, I'm okay with anything that keeps him from making more bad music. big grin

    That's the perfect description for it!!! I doubt my MySpace page even exists anymore - haven't logged in in ages.

    Ironic. He played in a movie about Facebook and now he is trying to resurrect Myspace. Anyhoo, I hate them both. I've never been on Facebook and I was on Myspace for about a year back in 2003-2004.
