    Justin Timberlake's longtime manager Johnny Wright said that a talent show or some other platform seeking to develop new artists will be a crucial element of the revamp of MySpace, of which Timberlake is now a partial owner.

    "Whether it becomes a talent competition or something like that, those are things that we will still flesh out," said Wright, who has managed Timberlake since he was in 'N Sync. "We definitely want to bring the industry back to MySpace to really look at the talented people that have put their faces there."

    Timberlake and the new management of the site are planning to detail their plans for revamping the ailing social networking dinosaur at a press conference slated for August 17th. Color us curious.

    Are you more interested in MySpace now that JT is involved? Will you re-activate your MySpace page or profile?
