What Exactly Is Justin Timberlake Planning to Do With MySpace?

Johnny Wright, Justin Timberlake's well-traveled manager, has explained just what Justin Timberlake's intentions might be with MySpace. And it has to do with music! Although not, unfortunately, JT's music. Says Wright: "Whether it becomes a talent competition or something like that, those are things that we will still flesh out ... We definitely want to bring the industry back to Myspace to really look at the talented people that have put their faces there." Also, Justin has a bunch of great ideas, as evidenced by the fact that he recently sent Wright an e-mail which read in part, "Are you up? My mind is going dizzy with ideas. I need to talk." More important: Further revelations will come in an August 17 press conference. Until then, MySpace will continue to, just like, you know, hang out. [THR]
