Pop-star and former NSYNC star Justin Timberlake has purchased defunct social network Friendster and is turning it into an exclusive social network for former and current boy band members.
“When I was in a boy band I remember feeling alone, like I didn’t have a support group of people who understood me and my life,” said Timberlake in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
“Boyz Klub will be a place where former and current boy members can connect, chat, share pictures and just be themselves.
“At Boyz Klub we will never judge. Whether you’re the funny one, the crazy one, the cute one or even the fat one, we won’t pigeon-hole you. Every boy is welcome.”
However, one sticking point for the exclusive social network will be it’s high sign-up fee which projects to be anywhere from twelve to fifteen thousand dollars a month.
“These boys are super talented. They will be making money for years and years. A fee that seems a lot for a regular person will barely affect their lives,” said Billy Reco, Boyz Klub’s CEO, when defending the expensive subscription.
“Most boy band members have 20, 30, 40-year careers.”
