MySpace announced the launch of MySpace Celebrity (celebrity.myspace.com), a content channel focused on entertainment culture and related news, blogs, videos, and events. The new hub will be the online destination for celebs to communicate directly with fans and for the MySpace community to interact with their favorite stars. The announcement unveils more than 300 official celeb MySpace profiles housed within the new channel including actors, musicians, athletes, comedians and socialites.
“MySpace Celebrity is Hollywood’s new home page. Celebrities have been using MySpace since the site’s launch and it’s a natural extension for us to now offer them an aggregated channel where they can be in control of their own image," said MySpace President and Co-Founder Tom Anderson. “We want MySpace users to connect with celebrities in the same way that they do with musicians.”
