Justin Timberlake, Rupert Murdoch will break your heart just like Britney did!

The news that Justin Timberlake is providing backing to the dying social media site Myspace may come as a surprise to some. Particularly for those who have long admired JT’s talents of hip-shaking alacrity and ability to hit choir boy falsettos, but less familiar with his credentials as Silicon Valley nerd.

Indeed, you can’t help wonder what his business meeting with Rupert Murdoch consisted of. Presumably wooing the octogenarian media emperor to the site’s fire-sale price, singing:

I’m bringing sexy back
Them other boys don’t know how to act
I think you’re special, what’s behind your back?
So turn around and I’ll pick up the slack.

To which no doubt Rupert gave the choreographed reply of agreement:

Dirty babe
You see the shackles?
Baby I’m your slave I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave

But once the love-ins over, I’m worried there could be tears for JT – maybe even worse than the post Britney Spears break-up. Although the $38m acquisition was a fraction of the $580m Rupert paid back in 2005, News Corp has been desperate to rid itself of Myspace for some time. And whether the site can actually be resurrected to compete with the likes of Facebook remains highly questionable.

JT, I think Rupert has done you wrong!

Oh well. Go on and just:

Cry me a river-er
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river
