So THIS is why he's taking a break from recording music?
Justin Timberlake has announced that he will be attempting to bring MySpace back - with plans to turn it into an interactive TV service?
He explains in a statement:
"We're ready to take television and entertainment to the next step by upgrading it to the social networking experience. Why text or email your friends to talk about your favorite programs after they've aired when you could be sharing the experience with real-time interactivity from anywhere across the globe? As the plot of your favorite drama unfolds, the joke of your favorite SNL (Saturday Night Live) character plays, or even the last second shot of your favorite team swishes the net, we're giving you the opportunity to connect your friends to your moments as they're actually occurring. This is the evolution of one of our greatest inventions, the television. And, we no longer have to crowd around the same one to experience it together."
Ambitious! And ballsy!
But could it work?
Well, if he can't save this sinking ship, then no one can!
What do U think?? Are U interested in JT's new plans for MySpace?
