Dear Justin Timberlake,
When I wrote earlier this year that I missed you, and wanted you to “get back to music,” this was NOT what I meant.
When I originally saw the news that NewsCorp had finally unloaded myspace for a staggering $545 loss, my thought was “what poor fool bought it?”
Then I saw this:
In the deal, Specific Media announced that Timberlake, along with his ownership stake, would “play a major role in developing the creative direction and strategy for the company moving forward.” In the same release, Timberlake said, “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…. I’m excited to help revitalize Myspace by using its social media platform to bring artists and fans together in one community.”
Sigh….so what he’s saying is that what he really wants to do is direct, huh? Justin Honey, when I said I wanted you to get back to making music, I meant YOUR music, and not just promoting other people’s.
