There was a MySpace launch party in LA last night. Miley Cyrus was there -- click here to see those photos. Justin Timberlake, co-owner, of MySpace was there too although he kept a relatively low profile. No carpet pictures and only shots from inside, and very few of those at that.
The event was in service of MySpace’s redesign and a new app. Can JT bring MySpace back? Is there room among the Twitters and Vines and Tumblrs and more? God, what will his ego be like if he does?
I’m not qualified to comment on whether or not MySpace JT will be successful. The last I heard, from this hilarious TechCrunch article in January, was that it seemed like a mess...which, I suppose, is why the improvement was necessary. I’ll let you let me know if the updates made a difference.
In the meantime, here’s a video promoting the new MySpace that Justin tweeted yesterday. It’s not particularly...original. Like it could be an ad for anything -- A&F, Apple, Coke, Justin Bieber’s friends, whatever.
