Justin Timberlake is the king of re-invention. Just look at what his hair looked like in 1998.
Now he’s lending his skeez to a revamp of an old favorite, MySpace 2.0. It’s actually a cool idea, since Facebook has managed to annoy everyone who uses it, and no one cares about Google+. Timberlake knows this.
Timberlake knows all.
That’s why he’s also an investor in the new MySpace and is hawking it all over the place.
It’s a classic case of life imitating art, since he played a similar role in “The Social Network” in 2010.
The new site seems to take good things from Pinterest, Google+ and Twitter and morph them all into one lil’ page.
Since Facebook is now seen as uncool by anyone under 40, could it be MySpace’s time to shine with the kiddies (again)? Or will people still be too lazy and/or jaded to sign up for yet another social-media site?
And, last but not least, is Timberlake hot property enough to make the sale? Stay tuned!
And speaking of Timberlake’s past lives: Britney Spears’ camp (yes, she has a camp — it’s full of wayward Girl Scouts who make s’mores out of Moon Pies and crushed-up oxycontin) is reportedly, like, totally bummed about the treatment that the cast of “Glee” gave the star. “Livid” is the word her manager used, according to “Access Hollywood.”
The hit show featured Spears’ music for the second time, which must have pleased the pop princess’ machine.
However, a head-shaving skit, umbrella-bashed paparazzi and songs that were clumsily tripped through were not exactly a homage to her greatness.
The troubled star rises from the ashes at the end of the “Glee” episode, though, and raises herself to new heights of fame. You know, like hosting the flailing “X Factor.” Redemption is so sweet.
