Can Justin Timberlake bring sexy back to Myspace?

Myspace has been sold to to Specific Media, an advertising network, for $35 million. If you remember, News Corp. bought Myspace for $580 million in 2005. Luckily for them, they managed to make it back with Google advertising when the social network is still popular.

But is Myspace worth $35 million now? I don’t think so.

But here’s the interesting side of the story. Justin Timberlake is said to be one of the investor in the Myspace buy. Yes, the pop star Justin Timberlake. The same guy who played Sean Parker in the movie The Social Network.

I doubt even the real Sean Parker can save Myspace now. Facebook is still very dominant in the social network space. Google just released their Google Plus lately. I personally think that Myspace needs to innovate faster in order to catch up.

Oh well, we shall see. Who knows, maybe Justin Timberlake can bring sexy back to Myspace. Maybe he can get more celebrities to come onboard Myspace.

The National Day Parade organising committee unveiled this year’s NDP Theme Song today. In A Heartbeat is performed by Sylvia Ratonel, Singapore Idol 3rd season runner up. Music by Goh Kheng Long and lyrics by Haresh Sharma.

Nice theme song. Love it!

PS: I can’t find the lyrics anywhere. So I decided to type them out myself. Please let me know if there’s any typo. Thanks.

Sylvia Ratonel – In A Heartbeat

I have a dream of starting a life
I have a hope, a flame alight
This is the moment, freedom is calling
This is my start, a new beginning

I have a heart, it beats for you
A step at a time, our spirit renew
Living together under the sun
Our hearts will beat as one

In a heartbeat, I’ll be there for you
In a heartbeat, no one else will do
In a heartbeat, we will always be
Together, united; you and me

In a heartbeat, time has passed us by
In a heartbeat, we will reach the sky
In a heartbeat, this will always be
Our people, our country
This is our family

Nothing will stand in our way
We can be strong today
The flame is alive
This is our life

In a heartbeat, I’ll be there for you
In a heartbeat, no one else will do
In a heartbeat, we will always be
Together, united; you and me

In a heartbeat, time has passed us by
In a heartbeat, we will reach the sky
In a heartbeat, this will always be
Our people, our country
This is our family

I’m still alive

I remember saying that if I don’t post anything on my blog for more than 3 days, please check on me cause something might have happened to me.

Haha. I’m not dead yet. Been busy lately. Spend my whole weekend playing Team Fortress 2. This is what happens when I get hooked on a game.

And I’m also gaga over work lately – both literally and figuratively if you get what I mean.

So yah, I’m not dead yet. I think next time I should say check on me if I don’t Blog, Facebook and Tweet for more than 3 days. Cause at least I still find time to Tweet and Facebook despite all the madness.
