Justin Timberlake bringing unsexy MySpace back

Getty Images File PhotoWorking it: Justin Timberlake is an investor in the revamped MySpace.

Justin Timberlake is the king of re-invention. Just look at what his hair looked like in 1998.

Now he’s lending his skeez to a revamp of an old favorite, MySpace 2.0. It’s actually a cool idea, since Facebook has managed to annoy everyone who uses it, and no one cares about Google+. Timberlake knows this.

Timberlake knows all.

That’s why he’s also an investor in the new MySpace and is hawking it all over the place.

It’s a classic case of life imitating art, since he played a similar role in “The Social Network” in 2010.

The new site seems to take good things from Pinterest, Google+ and Twitter and morph them all into one lil’ page.

Since Facebook is now seen as uncool by anyone under 40, could it be MySpace’s time to shine with the kiddies (again)? Or will people still be too lazy and/or jaded to sign up for yet another social-media site?

And, last but not least, is Timberlake hot property enough to make the sale? Stay tuned!

‘Glee’-ful noise

And speaking of Timberlake’s past lives: Britney Spears’ camp (yes, she has a camp — it’s full of wayward Girl Scouts who make s’mores out of Moon Pies and crushed-up oxycontin) is reportedly, like, totally bummed about the treatment that the cast of “Glee” gave the star. “Livid” is the word her manager used, according to “Access Hollywood.”

The hit show featured Spears’ music for the second time, which must have pleased the pop princess’ machine.

However, a head-shaving skit, umbrella-bashed paparazzi and songs that were clumsily tripped through were not exactly a homage to her greatness.

The troubled star rises from the ashes at the end of the “Glee” episode, though, and raises herself to new heights of fame. You know, like hosting the flailing “X Factor.” Redemption is so sweet.

Quick Takes

  • The Coen brothers and FX are teaming up to develop a “Fargo” TV show.
  • There’s a “black Muslim in the White House!” Madonna exclaimed at her recent D.C. concert.
  • Katie Couric has revealed her past battle with bulimia.
  • Sarah Michelle Geller has given birth to a little boy, her second child with Freddie Prinze Jr.  
  • Russell Brand cited “incompatibility” for his divorce from Katy Perry. Wow, thanks for that juicy tidbit.
