RECAP: New Myspace Launch Event

Recap: New Myspace Launch Event

Wait, so Jamie Chung is on that new Myspace now?  Lemme go sign up real quick.  But really, all jokes aside, this ain’t the same Myspace that consumed all of our time way back when with thoughts of who to put in our Top 8, which song would best convey our mood on our profile page, and whether we should un-friend Tom or not.  These days, they’re on that new new.  And to help Myspace ring in their launch earlier this week was a bevy of celebrities from the likes of Sanaa Lathan, Kenna, Justin Timberlake, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, and Miley Cyrus (I cannot confirm if her twerking talents made an appearance at the function, though).  Throw in some dope performances from Robin Thicke & Pharrell and Tyler, The Creator, and what you got is a proper launch party that has Myspace on that “I never left” tip.

For those that are acting brand new to the latest iteration of Myspace, it’s really quite understandable.  The current format is light years beyond the look and capabilities of its predecessor, instead opting to represent the world of creatives by showcasing their creativity, fostering collaboration, and encouraging discovery.  This is done through the desktop and mobile platforms and introduces a host of innovative features and nuances that aim to create a seamless and refreshing social media experience.  For more info, just check out Myspace.com.

So now that you have a few deets on what the new Myspace is all about, check out a few of the familiar faces that showed up to show their support for social media’s original don.

Richard "Reach" Guinto

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
